Book Review: The Third Wife by Lisa Jewell

I read the Third Wife on the beach and it was a perfect beach read. The premise is a family hit by a tragedy, the accidental death of the third wife. But was it an accident? The unusual blended family looks happy on the surface, but of course, there are secrets.

I loved the way the book was written. The chapters go back and forth between present time and how the family is dealing with the death of Maya (the third wife) and flashbacks of Maya unraveling.

This was unlike my usual dark themes. There is a mystery, but the core of the novel is family and that there is no such thing as a perfect family.

If you are looking for a lighter read, I would definitely recommend The Third Wife.
