    Everybody loved Blake. Except his wives. Blake Nelson, found murdered by the creek bed. He is survived by Mrs. Rachel Nelson. And Mrs. Emily Nelson. And Mrs. Tina Nelson. That's right - he was survived by all three of his wives. The four of them live on an isolated homestead, and no one else is even aware of there being a home in that area. "We're sister-wives.

The four of them live on an isolated homestead, and no one else is even aware of there being a home in that area. "We're sister-wives. Sealed together for eternity." Rachel - the first wife - is devout, obedient and has survived the horrors of the Prophet's cult. She copes by suppressing memories but...did she suppress a murder? Emily - young, frightened and coping in all the wrong ways - she's reeling from this marriage...but was she unhinged enough to commit a murder? Tina - street-smart, ex-prostitute and ex-junkie - she jumped into this marriage to keep herself on the straight-and-narrow...but what would she do for one...last...fix? All three wives are the suspects and the book slowly unravels - bringing to light the question - which Mrs. Nelson committed the crime? "I have to tell you, that story doesn't exactly fit with what the other wives are saying." So, (obviously) this book tackles a lot of controversial topics - polygamy, abuse, cults, religious fanatics - and yet I was wholly addicted. I couldn't put it down. I thought about it all day at work, I couldn't sleep cause I NEEDED to know the end. It is absolutely gorgeous. I love how the polygamy (which honestly, is a hugely contested topic) isn't treated as a side-show scandal. These women were really well-developed and they honestly love each other like sisters. The human-ness of this relationship is truly the star of the show. I was rooting for them (even when I was completely unsure which was (or could've been) the murderer.

    One husband, three wives - what could possibly go wrong? Rachel, Emily and Tina live on a remote property in Utah with their husband, Blake Nelson, in a plural, Mormon marriage. Blake goes out fishing one day and doesn’t return. His body is discovered with certain injuries and the police suspect murder. Naturally the wives become suspects as clearly one of them must have killed him, after all who else could it have been? But which one? What follows is a superbly crafted story with many layers. Ev One husband, three wives - what could possibly go wrong? Rachel, Emily and Tina live on a remote property in Utah with their husband, Blake Nelson, in a plural, Mormon marriage. Blake goes out fishing one day and doesn’t return. His body is discovered with certain injuries and the police suspect murder. Naturally the wives become suspects as clearly one of them must have killed him, after all who else could it have been? But which one? What follows is a superbly crafted story with many layers. Every time you think you are close to the answer another layer is peeled away. The story is told from the POV of the three women and you get to know them quite well. You think. They are all three very unreliable narrators! Rachel, is the first wife - a devout Mormon, very modest and ‘nice’. But Rachel’s story, for she grew up in a cult, is really quite dark. Emily - the second ‘sister-wife’ is a seemingly naive teenager (19 years old) who, having been raised as a strict Catholic, has some adjusting to do in the Mormon religion. And Tina - the third sister-wife is a former drug addict and prostitute from Las Vegas who met Blake in rehab where he volunteered. The women don’t exactly like each other and tensions simmer. So while the women are all being subjected to police scrutiny, they are also suspicious of each other. Who can they trust? You get the picture! While this was not a fast paced, nail biting thriller it WAS a very character driven drama, mystery, thriller. There weren’t that many characters so we dived deep into the stories of the three women. What I thought the author did particularly well was to give them each a very distinctive ‘voice’ which came across as very authentic. There was never any doubt as to which of the wives was narrating. I became quite fond of all three of them as the book progressed. I really enjoyed the book. When characters are so well portrayed I can really savour this sort of slow burn mystery. The book was little longer than average but I was still gripped and read it in one day. I have no hesitation in recommending this to fans of character driven drama and mysteries. Heck I mainly read thrillers and I still loved this. Thanks to Netgalley, Sourcebooks Landmark, and Cate Quinn for providing me with a copy to review. My opinions are my own.

    "I had the right husband, and the wrong wives." But what happens when the "right" husband is found dead and one of his three wives is suspected of killing him? Who could have killed Blake? Which wife? So begins the mystery. Black Widows is told through the POV of sister wives: Rachel, Emily and Tina. Rachel was Blake's first wife; she has a past that she would like to keep secret. Emily is young, anxious and estranged from her family. Tina, an ex-prostitute, came from the Vegas strip and has b "I had the right husband, and the wrong wives." But what happens when the "right" husband is found dead and one of his three wives is suspected of killing him? Who could have killed Blake? Which wife? So begins the mystery. Black Widows is told through the POV of sister wives: Rachel, Emily and Tina. Rachel was Blake's first wife; she has a past that she would like to keep secret. Emily is young, anxious and estranged from her family. Tina, an ex-prostitute, came from the Vegas strip and has been in rehab. The wives have nothing in common except for being married to Blake; until each is suspected of killing him. "It would almost seem," she says, "as though your husband went out shopping for wives. A maid in the parlor, a cook in the kitchen, a whore in the bedroom." Plural marriages how do they work? Does everyone get along? Are all the wives happy? Does Blake play favorites? Is there jealousy? You will need to read to find out. The premise of this book sounded so interesting. A man married to three women is found dead, the investigating officers believe he was killed by one of his wives. Now they need to prove it. Each wife has her voice and tells her tale. Through the course of the book, we learn more about each wife, her relationships with the other wives and her relationship with Blake. The beginning and ending of Black Widows were strong. The book lagged a little in the middle for me. I really enjoyed the sections about the sister wives’ relationships with each other. This is no Big Love (HBO series) where each wife has her own home and children. In this book, Rachel, Emily and Tina all live under the same roof on an isolated homestead. As the police investigate and question each wife, the women also wonder which of them killed Blake and why. Overall, an enjoyable, well written book which had me guessing and trying to figure out who killed Blake. Will you be surprised? I did not see that coming! Along the way we learn a lot of truths and there are some things brought to light in each of the POV characters.

    Mormon Blake Nelson builds a good life for himself in a very isolated homestead in Utah. He is found dead, believed murdered by his wife. Ok, but which one? Is it legal wife one, Rachel, quietly obedient or maybe sister wife two ex Catholic naive Emily or is it worldly wise sister wife three Tina, the ‘cuckoo’ in their nest?

He is found dead, believed murdered by his wife. Ok, but which one? Is it legal wife one, Rachel, quietly obedient or maybe sister wife two ex Catholic naive Emily or is it worldly wise sister wife three Tina, the ‘cuckoo’ in their nest? Each wife tells the story in their own way. First of all, this is an original mystery that’s hard to put down. The story is character driven which works extremely well and I like the varied pace of their storytelling. It’s fascinating trying to work out which narrative is the most reliable as they are all guilty of not necessarily lying but omission and telling the truth as they see it. The characters are very good, they’re all well developed and you see their individual personalities very clearly. Rachel seems obedient and has a past in a cult known as The Sunshine Homestead and her experiences are very dark and absolutely shocking and so no wonder her recall is piecemeal. She is like the mother of the group. Emily is young, innocent especially about sex, frightened but not as weak as she might seem. Tina is whip-smart, a former Las Vegas show girl and drug addict which she is trying to shed through marriage to Blake. Their perceptions of each other are fascinatingly illuminating though it tends to muddy the suspect waters. It’s equally fascinating observing how the dynamics between the wives changes both in their attitudes to each other but also Blake. Adelaide Nelson, Blake’s mother is a brittle but intriguing character and some of her actions make your jaw drop. The multilayered book has so many elements to it which are woven together fluidly and with clever misdirection. We witness the turmoil of the women, their fears, suspicion, there’s a host of secrets, cover ups but at its heart lies the mystery of Blake’s killer. Thank you Tina for the occasional humour to lighten the dark load. I like the ending which takes the storyline almost full circle. Overall, this is an excellent novel that is very hard to stop reading once you’ve started. It is a dark character driven tale that hooks you from the beginning and keeps you invested in seeking the truth. NB Other Mormons in the story reject Blake’s polygamy - it is illegal! With thanks to NetGalley and especially Orion for the arc for an honest review.

    Blake is dead. His wife killed him. The question is: Which one? That is the hook that sucked me right into this book and did not let go. This is a long book but truthfully it did not feel it and I had finished it just over a day. It is a slow burn of a story, with the past of each wife being revealed through chapters of alternative points of view. But it is so interesting and twisty that you just need to keep reading. So which wife hated Blake the most? That is pretty much it... one of his 3 wives Blake is dead. His wife killed him. The question is: Which one?

So which wife hated Blake the most? That is pretty much it... one of his 3 wives liked him very much and they don’t like each other either. Tensions certainly ran high in this plural marriage. The women, Rachel, Tina and Emily, don’t trust each other and are quick to point the finger elsewhere. They all had their pasts, with secrets that would rather keep that way. It all comes to a thrilling conclusion and I loved it. Thanks to Hachette Australia for my copy of this book to read.

    Nobody really cares who killed the Blake Nelson, since he's the least interesting person in the whole novel. What we really want to know is how these three women ended up in this shitty situation in the first place?! Revealed in cleverly plotted snippets, their stories come together in surprising ways. The whodunnit runs all the way to the end, with a properly insane finale. It's all a bit crazy, but genuinely fun. Well worth a read.

I've watched Sister Wives for years, Big Love was a big hit for me, and Target's new spring clothing line features a whole selection of FLDS Warren Jeffs-like prairie dresses, so I thought it was all a sign of a 5-star read. Unfortunately, as with Target's new clothing line, it was pretty much a big miss. The book begins with Blake, an FLDS member, and over-the-top doomsday prepper (what a great combo), found dead on his remote Utah ranch. Numero uno suspect - one of his three wives, Rachel, Emily, and Tina. Numero uno problem - each of them had a potential motive, they all have weak alibis, and they all hate each other. Of course it turns out that each of the wives are keeping secrets from each other, but Blake had also kept secrets from all of them. It's a classic "whodunnit" - which one of his wives hated Blake enough to kill him? I actually liked way the storyline unfolded through the POVs - each wife delivered first-person accounts with a possible fourth person scenario hinted at, just for kicks. I did think that Quinn nailed the personalities of the wives and their overall angst with each other. Rachel, the first wife who grew up as Mormon and attended Brigham Young University; second wife, Emily, who basically ran away from her neglectful mother and her Catholic upbringing at eighteen years old to marry Blake; and third wife, Tina, a former drug addict and trick-turner, whom Blake converted when he volunteered at her rehab. I liked Rachel and Emily, but Tina's character seemed somewhat out of Blake's lane and just didn't fit, which lost me a bit. At times though, I found myself changing my opinion about all three of the wives and sympathizing with each of them more than I initially thought I would, so that was a plus. It was the overall plot that lost me. I figured out very early on who the killer was (and not because I'm some super sleuth - it was just very easy to figure out!), and although I did waver a couple of times, in the end I was right, and it just underwhelmed me. I kept waiting for a big "twist" in the epilogue chapters, but there was really nothing surprising at all. I also thought there was some sloppy research when it came to religion - for instance, Catholics don't speak in tongues - although ecclesiastical Latin can be hard to follow, it is still not "tongues;" and at times, Quinn seemed to equate the fundamentalist LDS movement with evangelical Christianity. Evangelical Christians are a lot of things, but polygamists they are not. These would be minor things but for the fact that the whole plot centers around religion, so to have such an obvious confusion of facts on the main subject matter was a head-scratcher to me. Overall, there were some parts of this one that I very much enjoyed, but it just didn't wow me. A solid 3 stars for me.

All three have complicated relationships with each other, and all are suspects. Without diving into the synopsis any further, who could it be? I really loved how Black Widows started. It really captured my interest due to the storyline of the Nelson family's plural marriage. As the story ventured onward, I really enjoyed the cult undertones (without going further into detail) and I loved to dislike all three of the Nelson wives. Black Widows is a deliciously dark procedural novel and I'm actually quite shocked that this is a debut, because the writing is fabulous. My only complaint, and honestly the reason why this book isn't a four star read, is that the book is entirely too long. It could be a good 75-100 pages shorter and still deliver a compelling story. However, if you enjoy slow burn whodunnits, this book will be there for you. Save Black Widows for a rainy day (or weekend for that matter).

My mind wwas changed multiple times to who the murderer could be. I did eventually work it out but that never spoils a good story for me. Secrets are slowly revealed around each wife. It's packed full of twists and red herrings. The story is told from the three wife's perspectives with alternate chapters that tell us of the events before and after Blake's death. This is a well written story that's gripping from the start. I would like to thank #NetGalley, #OrionPublishingGroup and the author #CateQuinn for my ARC in exchange for an honest review.

But, by the time I got to 50%, I no longer cared who killed Blake Nelson. Quinn is a skilled writer. And the background of the characters was fascinating. Not only did it deal with the much-misunderstood Church of the Latter-Day Saints (LDS), along with a more extreme form of that religion as well (polygamists), but it also delved into a third level – that of a remote cult-like organization. I found this three-layered effort on a group of people not super well-known to be fascinating. As the book moves along, you learn more and more about the three wives as well, so there are three more mysteries within the main who-dunnit story. Ultimately, however, I ended up quitting the book as I lost interest. I’m not sure what the author should have done differently – perhaps it was taking too long to dole out the information? In any case, I did enjoy the writing style, and the shifting perspectives and personalities as chapters alternated between the points of view of the three wives. Also, I do have to put caution out there for more sensitive readers: While nothing is told in first person or completely graphic in nature, the novel does contain numerous references to more extreme fetishes, so to speak, and abuse to minors.

Tina, the other wife, who is everything Rachel isn't. And Emily, the youngest wife, who knows little else. When their husband is found dead under the desert sun, the questions pile up. But none of the widows know who would want to kill a good man like Blake. Or, at least, that's what they'll tell the police... -------- My take.... A cracking whodunnit from Cate Quinn with Black Widows, set against a back-drop of the Mormon faith and a somewhat unconventional family dynamic in Utah. One man, Blake Nelson and three wives, Rachel, Tina and Emily. Blake is dead and it looks like one of his wives has done it. I liked the way the story unfolded with chapters alternating between the three wives and their perspectives on the situation. Rachel ...the first wife, a troubled past, suppressed memories, secrets, obedient to a fault, naive and an innocent in the bedroom, jealous of her "two sisters" Emily.... wife #2, the youngest, scatty, issues with intimacy, and at odds with her husband. She knows a thing or two about Rachel. Tina..... wife #3, a former bad girl, found Blake and found some faith, a convert, a former addict and hustler with street smarts, There's an ongoing police investigation into the murder with the likelihood that one of the above did it. I liked how at varying times in the narrative my thoughts as to who the murderer was changed. The author did a great job in juggling all the balls and keeping me guessing. I liked the cops assigned to the case and their relationships with the women, at times levitating between support and an almost friendship to hostility and belligerence as they sought to solve the murder. Gradually we learn more about the situation. Gradually the relationship between the three women changes from tense and resentful and jealous to one where they work together (mostly Rachel and Tina) to learn about more of Blake's secrets..... a possible 4th wife addition, a land deal, money issues, extended family relationships.... a lot of which he kept from the wives. We have a Vegas road trip with some bar-hopping as well as a raid on a church. It's all a bit of an eye opener for Tina. I enjoyed learning more about the Mormonism and the splits and schisms over polygamy, which is still practised by a minority, but which is frowned upon by most. I got myself a crash course in their habits and values and the inequality between the genders. I liked the community apart from a community feel of the family of four and the friction and rejection of elements of them from the true believers - ie those more aligned with, for what of a better word, mainstream Mormonism. I read this one in two days flat which considering its close to 450 pages long and one of those days was a workday, is testament to way in which I was absorbed by the story and the necessity to see what happens next. The multi-viewpoint worked well here, as you don't spent too much time in one character's head, so the perspective of the book changes frequently. No chance of boredom, or sense of drag. Overall - a really satisfying, exciting and somewhat educational read. 4.5 from 5 Read - February, 2021 Published - 2020 Page count - 448 Source - review copy from published - Orion Format - trade paperback ARC http://col2910.blogspot.com/2021/02/c...

But Blake isn’t satisfied yet. He soon takes two more wives, Emily and Tina, completing their family unit. However, he doesn’t plan for the fact that they all hate each other. When Blake is brutally murdered, all three wives become the prime suspects. Black Widows is a clever thriller that keeps you guessing until the very end. Rachel, Emily and Tina take turns narrating the story and are all well-developed characters. I appreciate the author’s nod to the 80’s television drama, Cagney and Lacey, as I am also a fan of the show. This reference often brings levity to a serious situation. I found this book to be more of a twisty thriller, than cult story. While the subject matter is difficult, it is palpable to read without having to turn away. Unfortunately, I was slightly disappointed with the ending, but overall enjoyed it. If you loved Tarryn Fisher’s The Wives, this one is for you! 4/5 stars

None of the characters were all that interesting and I didn't feel any emotions towards them. They all had their own little secrets but it just wasn't enough to have me interested in what happened to any of them. Black Widows was an okay read with bland characters. The author tried too hard to be shocking and it fell flat. The twists that were supposed to be hair-raising were just your typical everyday stuff. I can't say that I was overly impressed. I guess it was something to pass the time.

    I received an ARC of this book through Bookbrowse for an honest review. Not your usual husband/wife thriller - one husband, three wives, with more wives on the way? One may never know because Blake is dead and all three wives are suspects. Through the story, with each wife telling their version, both with Blake and each other, their respective pasts are revealed. All three are untrustworthy, so which one comes closest to actually telling the truth.

The subject matter about polygamy, and the parts about Homestead, a cult like living compound where Rachel the first wife grew up, are somewhat uncomfortable to read. Yes, some sex is discussed, yet I did not find it too graphic. The chapters are short and the story moves along very smoothly. It is not hard to say "just one more chapter!" I would recommend this one and will read more from this author.

    Long, but pretty good! I wasn’t in love with the whole polygamy aspect, but since it was more of a thriller, it worked out in the end. The women were all so different in the beginning. The idea that they all loved the same man was baffling. And that he loved them even more so. Seeing him from their different points of view made me despise him. I don’t know if he ever truly loved them, honestly. It mostly felt he was abusing his power, religion, and situation. Uncovering his murderer was a lot of Long, but pretty good!

They were all so untrustworthy, yet I couldn’t picture ANY of them actually doing it. Yes, it seemed so obvious to choose Rachel. But... I loved that we got all the wives’ voices. Getting to know them and their pasts was important. There were so many people to HATE in this book. Blake, his mother. His mother. Prophet. Aunt Meg. And there is so much going on...at some points it’s hard to keep up with it all. I enjoyed the wives trying to uncover the murderer. It was fun having them all question each other’s guilt and innocence. By the time the story was starting to wrap up, I was ready for it to be over. As much as I enjoyed it, it had started to drag a bit. So it did feel a little anticlimactic since there were limited possible suspects to begin with. I did like it though, and would definitely read more from the author.

    Phew. I need a minute. This was a dark, dark book. I had no idea which way it would turn by the end. Lots of twists, cleverly dropped at the end of each chapter to keep the reader engaged, and lots of grim secrets to discover. By the end of the book, it's hard for the reader to really work out what the biggest twist was, there were so many! Add to that a whodunit, and I am SOLD! I changed my mind so many times I got dizzy!

I loved each chapter being from a different character, the three wives were SO different, and I loved them all for different reasons. Although I think I loved Tina's humour the most, she was SASSY! I have always held a little fascination for Mormons, and cults, and this book was fascinating. Lots of research had clearly been done to further intensify the tension and drama. This is a new author for me, but definitely one to look out for.

Like the words can’t get past the grief. ‘Everybody loved Blake. Who would want to hurt him?’ Travel and lifestyle journalist Cate Quinn branches away from her previous work to produce her first modern thriller. A gripping and page turning read, inciting much speculation, Black Widows is a dark whodunnit. When Blake Nelson is found murdered in a remote location in Utah, he leaves behind three wives. These women are members of a cult following the values of the Church of Latter-Day Saints. Black Widows sees this trio deal with aftermath of their husband’s shock death. While first wife Rachel takes the lead, the other wives follow along with the scathing investigation. With intense scrutiny placed on each of the wives, their past histories are slowly revealed. With more questions than answers, these widows seem to have no idea of who killed their beloved – or do they? A tough case for the police to crack, will Blake’s killer be apprehended? I was eager to delve into the pages of Black Widows, the first contemporary thriller offering from historical fiction novelist and journalist Cate Quinn. I was hooked from the opening of this one, right up until the bitter end. Black Widows proved to be a page turning thriller. The narration of Black Widows is shared between the three wives of the murdered husband figure of this tale. Quinn does an amazing job of reaching inside the mindset and past lives of these three very different women. We learn that although these women shared the same spouse and lifestyle, each woman has a contrasted life journey. Each wife is very unique in their personality traits, beliefs and actions. I appreciated the chance to get to know Rachel, Emily and Tina. My sympathies as well as my suspicions were aroused at different points of this novel. Black Widows is a distracting novel that takes the reader on a number of divergent pathways. There is no doubt that Cate Quinn has done her homework on this one, especially in the areas of polygamy and religion. We are privy to the unique belief systems, culture, practices, rules, regulations and ideals of the cult depicted in the novel. There are times when Black Widows takes quite a sinister route. We are exposed to a fair amount of darkness in term of control, abuse, sexual relations, pregnancy, birth, incest and violence. I was able to get through these graphic scenes, but be warned. Quinn treats these thematic ideas with a sense of control and insight. In terms of the central murder mystery and the police investigation, I enjoyed this aspect of the novel. We are presented with a significant amount of detail on the victim, his wives and his life as part of a cult. There are twists, turns, red herrings, unreliable narrators and suspect figures that work to complicate this investigation. But the wives are the true stars of the show, which is down to Quinn’s intricate character analysis focus. The final outcome was not what I expected at all. Black Widows definitely led me down the beaten track so to speak, but this is the sign of a quality thriller presentation. Black Widows is a book that I find very easy to recommend. It offers a unique take on the standard thriller format. *Thanks is extended to Hachette Australia for providing a free copy of this book for review purposes.

    I didn’t enjoy this book at all. I’m sorry, I don’t like to give negative reviews but this is one of the worst books I’ve read in a long time. I’m sure a lot of people will think it is wonderful, but I wasn’t interested in the story and I found it slow and boring. No way could I call it ‘a gripping murder mystery with a killer hook’. It seemed to go on … and on … and on. I began to lose interest in the second chapter when I spotted the first error (How some soul-searching’ …). OK, it might only I didn’t enjoy this book at all.

OK, it might only be an incorrect apostrophe to some, but to me it shows a lack of care. I only carried on reading to see how many more errors I could find. Plenty. Does anyone who has anything to do with this book know how to use a comma, or where not to put an apostrophe, or how to proofread to find spelling mistakes/double words/added words/missing words? Obviously not. I have a whole long list of errors, but I’ll just note a few here: Mrs Neilson (Mrs Nelson) And the I realise … (And then I realise …) … with it’s stench of chemicals.

    This book is one of the most original thrillers I've read in a while. Blake Nelson was a polygamist, a man who believed that having multiple wives brought him closer to Christ. But even in Utah, plural marriage is frowned upon by the LDS community, which has driven Blake to an extremely remote ranch in the desert, with his wives Rachel, Emily, and Tina.

When Blake is found murdered at his fishing spot on the property, the cops know it had to be one of the wives. The race to uncover what Blake had been doing and planning before his death leads to a darkness seldom seen in the placid streets of Salt Lake City and its outskirts. Cate Quinn did a masterful job of misdirection and ratcheting up the tension in these pages. I really enjoyed that each of the wives had their own POV, and they were all explored in great depth. There were twists and turns, and a few shocking revelations. The most unexpected thing for me was the fact that the book was surprisingly funny, in parts. If you are looking for a suspense filled book that will keep you up late turning pages, definitely give Black Widows a go. 4 stars I received a review copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. Thank you to Netgalley and Sourcebooks Landmark.

The three wives are very unique and the book is written from their perspectives in alternating chapters. The chapters were nice and short and the switching narrators kept it intriguing. There was one wife who is a reformed drug user and prostitute and I just couldn’t get into the style of writing for her chapters. It was a little too glib for me and I almost just wanted to gloss over her parts. I found it hard to believe how any of them could truly love their husband but that was a theme throughout the novel. It was also very long (over 400 pages) and at times the plot got a little too convoluted for me. This one had some good parts sprinkled in with some mediocre. Thank you to @sourcebooks for my advanced reading copy!

Well, you can certainly expect him to die mysteriously. And who killed him? Well, that's what this book is for, innit? Rachel, sister-wife one: pious, dutiful, secretive and has a traumatic past. Emily, sister-wife two: timid, curious with a tendency to lie. Tina, sister-wife three: bold, cynical and a former drug addict (among other things) from Las Vegas. This book was a crazy ride. The narration was from the POVs of the wives, each with their unique thought process and style. But even with multiple POVs it was quite easy to follow. The cult angle was interesting and sad too. Because so much of it is real. Its a wonder that women survive and thrive in this world despite what they are put through. All of these wives suffered differently but their pain was the unifier. But despite the harrowing events, the narration was interesting and witty and at times funny. The book got a bit slow in the middle. And the whole aspect of polygamy was a bit unbelievable. I do not know much about The Latter Day Saints and their old ways but I will be trying to learn more about this branch of Christianity. Can people do that? Get married to more than one person, in this present century? I loved reading this book and if you are searching for a thriller with different troupes, this book is for you! Thank you Sourcebooks and Netgalley for the E-ARC. 4.6 stars!

    I didn’t get the impression from the book or interviews with the author that she was familiar with the LDS church (commonly known as Mormons) and how the characters in this book were far from the norm. She refers to them as “Mormon” in the book and in interviews but the official church doesn’t recognize polygamy and those who practice it are part of an unaffiliated fundamentalist offshoot. She also seems to confuse that with evangelical Christianity which isn’t the same thing either.

She also seems to confuse that with evangelical Christianity which isn’t the same thing either. Her formerly Catholic character is depicted as speaking in tongues. In the book a character says Postum was made from chicory (not true) and there a few other parts that made me think she researched the book via Wikipedia and lifestyle blogs. Why would she write about something she seemed to know nothing about? She appears to be British, has she ever been to Utah? Met a member of the LDS church? The idea was fine but nothing really rang true. Maybe she just wanted to write something she thought would be flashy and sensational and didn’t care if it felt authentic. A big part of the plot hinges on polygamy being legal in Nevada which isn’t true. Really just a sloppy mess through and through. I don’t know why anyone who seemingly knows nothing about any of the religions mentioned in the book decided with write a book where the plot revolves around religion.

Rachel is the first wife and she is no stranger to the devout and unusual level of faith her husband lives because she grew up on a secluded ranch run by a madman called "The Prophet" whose extensive harem and behavior left him in prison. Tina and Emily are new to the seclusion and strict rules but are adapting sort of. They all had a motive. The past never stays in the past and these women will need to form an alliance to get through this ordeal or figure out who is lying. Whiplash thriller that I can guarantee you won't put down once you start. My thanks to the publisher for the advance copy.

    I received an early copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I am always a sucker for anything to do with the FLDS. So reading a description that revolved around a murder and the 3 sister wives are the primary suspects was too good to pass up. Overall this was a compulsive story to read over a weekend. I found the dynamic between the sister wives to be well done. Having one wife who was was raised in the religion and the other two wives to be brought in as outsiders was a good move.

I don't think the story would have worked without it. Any time I read a suspense/thriller/mystery and do not predict the outcome is a winner in my book. This is winner. I was very satisfied by the ending and the story arch is tied up very well. My only complaint is that I think the writing was a bit underwhelming. I think it would have benifitted from more editing. As I read an e-galley I hope that has occurred.

    Highly enjoyed and was surprised by a few turns, which is difficult to do with the amount of thrillers I read. I also appreciated the detectives storyline in trying to build and find evidence but would have loved more on-page time, though I know the book was more about the sister wives. Spoilers in the content warnings! CW: fire, death of a spouse, strangulation, drug use (off-page), sexual assault of children, sexual assault, incest, miscarriage, death of infant, trauma, domestic abuse

    When Blake Nelson is found dead in the middle of the desert, suspicion automatically points towards his wife. But which one? Rachel, Tina and Emily are part of the mormon community and all are married to Blake. Tension has been building so which one snapped? I really enjoyed this! The background cult story kept me hooked. I liked how the wives all had completely different and complex personalities. I don't know how accurate this was towards the mormon religion but it was fascinating to read about.

More concerning, however, were the content errors that were so numerous they went from merely distracting to actually offensive. Ms Quinn lives in the UK. This book is set in the deserts of Utah, among fundamentalist and mainstream Mormons. It is entirely evident after reading this that Ms Quinn has never stepped foot in a Utah desert, knows nothing about mainstream Mormons, and very little about Fundamentalist Mormons. In fact, in the interview with the author at the end of the book, she makes it clear that all her research was done online. Clearly, even that was limited. The types of fundamentalists she describes do exist—in that there are people practicing polygamy and holding to specific beliefs. The mainstream Mormons she describes, however, are a caricature based on images of 19th century early Utah settlers and an amalgamation of early (largely discredited or abandoned) LDS church writings. The list of cultural and religious errors is long, but the most grievous are the sections of “scripture” she claims to quote but instead merely made up. In this day and age, it’s not hard to do thorough research online. Particularly on a religion that has 16 million members and a very large online presence. Even if she never visited Utah or spoke with any members of the LDS church, or any polygamous sect, she could have done a better job. Failing to do so was lazy, and shows a disrespect for her subject and her readers.

The strictness of preparing for the end of days with the canning of goods, polygamy and the wearing of holy under garments to name just a few lifestyle rituals that are seen as strange by outsiders. We first meet Rachel the chief wife after the police have visited to inform her of Blake’s death. Devout and strict does her past holds clues to the present? Then we meet Tina sister wife and an ex drug addict and prostitute Blake met in Vegas as a volunteer and young, naive, innocent Emily the latest sister wife to be brought in to the fold. As all three are interviewed by Officers Brewer and Carlson I wondered if they would sell each other out? With suspicion, jealousy and no love lost between the three I was shaking my head at disbelief that this four way marriage was more of a nightmare than I first thought. Little did I know of the shocks still to come. As the past is brought to light I had my suspect and motive. Did I get it right??? ABSOLUTELY NOT. This is definitely a slow burn character led thriller. But trust me these characters are worth the time, I loved all three wives even Rachel who was far from easy to like. Tina had the best lines and her dead pan humour was a welcome relief after the dark horrors. For those of a delicate nature I suggest that if you read this you do it wearing bunny pjs and with a basket of kittens or puppies on standby. There are some scenes of a graphic nature and dark topics that I did not know were coming, you have been warned. Who can you trust when you know they are all lying to keep their secrets? Brimming with tension this kept me hooked right up to the explosive denouement.
