#BookReview: The Third Mrs. Durst by Ann Aguirre

Synopsis: Some people just need killing. 

Marlena Altizer Durst lives in her husband’s shadow. He controls her every move—what she wears, the food she eats, and the friends she’s allowed to make. If she disobeys, there are… consequences. And he has all the power, so nobody would believe her.

Her Cinderella story has been well-documented and it seems that she leads a fairy-tale life. But nobody ever wonders if Cinderella was happy after she married the prince. Marlena has traded freedom and safety for luxurious imprisonment, and most days, that seems like a bad bargain. Death may be the only exit she’s allowed. Just like his first wife. And his second.

Unless she flips the script.

And gets away with murder…

Rating: 🌟🌟
My Review: Although this was a very quick book, I have to say that this one was not very character heavy at all.  It was all plot and that plot was pretty slow.  This one lacked the twists and turns I have come to love in my mystery thrillers and I have to say that if this book would have been longer I most likely would have DNFed it. 

"Aguirre inserts twists and turns that keep the pages turning ... All of Aguirre's positive characters are beautiful, strong, and resilient."―New York Journal of Books
"The ultimate duel: a humming, intelligent woman versus a violent husband who believes that he is the strongest one in the relationship. This is one you must 'see' with your own eyes. It's an experience you won't forget."―Suspense Magazine
"The Third Mrs. Durst is a slow, dark burn that leads to a fantastic explosion of an ending."―Victoria Helen Stone, bestselling author of Jane Doe
