What the Book Says

One evening as the sun is setting, Amelia Madison’s car slides into the sea off Mason’s Pier. Her body is never found.

Two years later, Elena Langdon meets Nicholas Madison. She is grieving the loss of her mother, he is grieving for his wife. Together they can help each other.

Now Elena is living with Nicholas. But Elena doesn’t really know him. She doesn’t know what he is capable of.

And she doesn’t know what really happened to Amelia.

Until the day she discovers the torn page of a letter and the words she reads chill her to the bone.

Elena must find the person who wrote these letters if she is to save herself.

A totally breath-taking page-turner about the darker side of love and what really goes on behind closed doors. This book will have you gripped from the very first page until the dramatic final twist.


I have only read one other of Laura Elliot’s previous books, Guilty, now that I have read The Wife Before Me, I certainly will be rectifying my ways and I look forward to delving into the rest of Laura’s books.

Lets get on with what I know and what I found out, mind you I won’t give anything away, so lets get the show on the road…

The Wife Before Me is Laura Elliot’s newest psychological thriller, which delves into the life of Nicholas a monster, an abuser who to the average individual on the outside of his relationships comes across as being the perfect gentleman. As I progress through the book I watched, waited for the pieces of the puzzle to fall into place, can Elena solve the past to help her future. So many questions to be answered, a whirlwind of emotions flow through my mind the further I read into The Wife Before Me, will I be able to contain my frustration at the blindness of others, only the turning of the pages to the finale would I find out my answers.

I thoroughly enjoyed the portrayal of each character, the different dynamics, the personalities was plausible, palpable that it was so easy to be involved in each and every situation they found themselves in. Nicholas was painted as a Jekyll and Hyde type of character, where his charisma, faultlessly healthy nature, clean cut persona played over and over, but behind closed doors, a different beast was unleased. Nicholas’s mother is blind beyond belief that they couldn’t see their son for what he was, but its an unconditional love, a painted scenario, a blindness to the monster that has been created, she effectively put Nicholas on a pedestal and worshipped him.

I loved the intense pull that Laura painted upon each page, driving me to turn the pages, virtually inhaling the narrative to the point I was literally swimming in the scenarios and living Laura’s imagination.

Thanks go to Bookouture, Laura Elliot and Kim Nash for an advanced readers copy of The Wife Before Me, to read in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. Thanks Kim for my spot on the Blog Blitz today.
