HOUSEWIFE CHRONICLES is a slow-burn domestic thriller that is told from two perspectives. On one hand, there’s Gina: a youthful yoga instructor with a recently exposed secret. On the other hand, there’s Beth: a mother of two trying to come to terms with her husband’s recent death.
Between the two points of view, readers get insight into the relationship with these two women and ultimately how their paths merge together. The short chapters help keep the pages turning and the author is good at throwing in little twists at the end of almost all of those.
Despite the sometimes slow pacing, HOUSEWIFE CHRONICLES is worth the read as it will keep you engaged until the very end.
Her husband's affair coming to light two weeks before his death should have been the worst thing to happen to Beth Cartwright that year. But being a widowed, single mom in a community of upper-class housewives is proving to be far more difficult.
Living next door to her husband's mistress and her former yoga instructor-Gina Thompson, has Beth wanting to pack up her teenage kids and get the hell out of the neighborhood. But when she becomes a suspect in her husband's death, she needs to rely on her husband's mistress and the rest of her quirky neighborhood friends to keep her out of jail.
Housewife Chronicles is a dark comedy with a hint of mystery and a focus on unlikely female friendships.
