#BookReview:The Stranger's Wife (Detective Dan Riley #3) by @annaloulondon @bookouture

Synopsis: Beth and Cath are leaving their husbands. 

This is a story about two very different women. 

One is wealthy and having an affair with a man who gives her the kind of love that her cold, detached husband does not. 

One is living hand to mouth, suffering at the hands of a violent partner who would rather see her dead than leave him. 

You may think you know these women already and how their lives will unfold. 

Beth will live happily ever after with her little girl and her soulmate. 

Cath will go back to her abusive husband. 

And these two women will never cross paths. 

But you will be wrong. 

On the 3.15pm train from London to Bristol, Beth and Cath are about to meet and discover they share one shocking thing in common. 

A clever, engrossing and absolutely unputdownable page-turner of a read about what really lies beneath the surface of a marriage. Fans of Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train will be hooked on The Stranger’s Wife. 


Rating: ★★★★
My Review: This third book in the Detective Dan Riley series feels to me like it could be read as a stand alone.  I never read the first two titles but I didn't feel like I was missing to much.  I am sure there were things that would have been better if I would have read the first two books but overall I liked how this one played out.  The mystery surrounding this title was one that the reader didn't know the answers to and I loved how the whole thing unfolded. 

Beth and Cath were two great characters.  I loved how Weatherley played the characters right until the end. Everyone had voice and stayed true to themselves.  This one kind of reminded me of Behind Closed Doors by B.A. Paris and I think that if you loved that that one that this one will be up your alley.  And I am excited to check out the first two titles soon. 

Go Into This One Knowing: Slightly Predictable, Great Ending, Wonderful Characters
