About this ebook

The first time you see them, out for an evening walk on the cliffs, you’ll think they’re the perfect family. You’ll see a wife who looks so happy, strolling peacefully beside her husband in his dark winter coat, holding her daughter’s hand. But you have no idea what’s really happening in their house…

If you come a little closer you might hear the way the man speaks to his wife.

You might notice that the woman doesn’t have any close friends. That sometimes her husband doesn’t want her to leave the house. You might wonder if that’s a scar her beautiful daughter is hiding on her neck.

When you read the local newspaper and hear the news that the wife has fallen from the cliffs, you’ll question whether it was really an accident at all.

And when the husband starts dating someone new – a woman with the same long dark hair and big blue eyes as his wife – will you say something this time?

Because someone has to protect the little girl and stop history from repeating itself. And it may already be too late.

A thrilling and twisty tale, His Hidden Wife will keep you up all night, desperate to race through to its final conclusion. Readers of Gone Girl, The Couple Next Door and Lisa Jewell will be hooked.

Another winner from author Wendy Clarke! This story is punctuated with unreliable characters who are deeply flawed. There is a truth under it all but getting to it is a twisting and turning road that will give you a wild ride!

A child should never have to lose a parent and for Maya, the little that she remembers of that tragic day her mother Cheryl died, is a small blessing. But years later when her father brings home his new girlfriend Amy, Maya’s world is turned upside down. For Amy, looks like her mother and with the same mannerisms, throws Maya into a spin. Her mother fell to her death off the cliff that day. Didn’t she? I really enjoyed this story and it is another great addition to Wendy Clarke’s growing bibliography. It immediately pulled me into its drama and had me caught up in the mystery. You really don’t know who you can trust and as the story progresses, how it is all going to unfold and come together. I loved the setting, a fictitious village in Dorset, where Maya and her father live in a remote house cliffside overlooking the sea. It really adds to the chilling and sinister tone of the story and enhanced its darkness all the more. While this is slow burn, it is also a thrilling ride that keeps you on the edge of your seat. It has been well researched and actually has me very intrigued to read more on some of the psychological studies that are mentioned, although I can’t say anymore on this without giving anything away. Wendy Clarke is a natural born storyteller and knows how to get her readers attention. They are always well written with great characterisation and are just also a joy to read. She knows her audience and is such an exciting voice in the psychological thriller genre. His Hidden Wife is an enthralling and suspenseful tale that will keep you up flicking those pages long into the early hours. Another great read from Wendy Clarke and as always, I can’t wait to see what she comes up with for us next. It was a pleasure to read and review His Hidden Wife, which I recommend.
