The Widower's Wife Reviews

    First I’d like to apologize for being MIA the past week. I missed my weekly wrap up and I am up to my eyeballs in past due reviews. The Humphrey household has fallen apart (between sickness and, quite literally, falling apart) and we are just now functioning again. I appreciate all those who have messaged and checked on me. I finished this book last week and have been dying to review it; I’d also love to discuss things with others who have read it that I can’t review here because of spoilers, but my mind was spinning a bit.First off- GORGEOUS COVER ALERT. Love it. Seriously. It was what initially made me click that button on NetGalley and bring it home to mama. And before you get all defensive on my rating, a 3 star-in my book-is still an enjoyable read and does not mean I wouldn’t recommend it! I’ve heard that sermon too many times to count. The pacing was absolutely stunning; I literally couldn’t put this book down. I was taking it everywhere with me; the gym, the kid’s school, picking it up during nap time and bed. This was a super pacy read and if you are needing something to completely absorb your attention, this is it baby. I love how the POV switches between the past voice of Ana and the present voice of Ryan. In the first third of the book, the author had my head whipping back and forth trying to keep up with the ever-changing plot and twisty twists y’all. PAGE TURNER.But then I started having issues. They weren’t the type that would bother everyone; in fact, it seems as though one of the major issues I had with credibility and realistic plot aspect went unconcerned by most readers, so it might just be a me issue. I wish I could write out each issue here, but I can’t due to spoilers; let’s just say once I hit about 50% in, I was calling every single plot twist before they happened. I don’t feel this is due to my intelligence in any means; I think it was simply just a form of reading books with the same plot too many times before. Every time I would catch the beginning of a set up and say “surely this won’t be the answer since its the easiest and most logical/obvious choice”, yet it was. I went back to thinking of that first third that had me so fooled, then I realized most of it was due to ever changing plot. You would be told one thing, but then corrected and told the “actual truth” at a later date. The only conclusion I could come to is that the tidbits that would allude to a twist were not subtle in the least. Mystery solvers who like to piece together the clues will probably not enjoy this one if that be the type of read you’re looking for; however, if you are looking for a suspenseful thriller that will keep you engaged-this is it! I was impressed that, even figuring out the twists ahead of time, this book still captivated my attention in such a grand gesture. Kudos to the author and I will be checking out her previous book; it’s already on my Amazon wish-list! Definitely an author to keep on the radar folks; this girl’s got talent!*Thanks to the publisher for providing my copy via NetGalley. It was my pleasure to provide an honest review.

    I received a copy of The Widower's Wife by Cate Holahan through NetGalley for an honest review. My thanks to Crooked Lane Books and to Cate Holahan for the opportunity.What is the depth of a lie?.....A lie that reaches the dark abyss of any ocean and spans from horizon to horizon.Ana and Tom Bacon live in an enviable palatial home in the suburbs. The decorators and craftsmen have been busy tapdancing their way through rendering bolts of materials and installing the finest marble that money can buy. Tom has always seen to it. But now there is a bit of dust on this once solid marble. Tom has gotten himself into a bit of a skirmish with faulty investments. Time is not on their side and the mailman delivers echoes of bad news. Decisions have to be made in favor of their young daughter, Sophia. Ana has hocked her engagement ring to pay the looming mortgage. Even Ana's parents have been deported and they now live in a dangerous part of Brazil. No light at the end of this tunnel.Tom's mind reacts like a cornered rat in the alleyways of Brooklyn. He's not going down without the rally cry of a gamer playing the game. He's going to lay his cards out on the table. And we will all see whether the deck is stacked against him or not. Cate Holahan presents a true thriller with the thundering waves of mega thrills flowing throughout. It's a clever read being approached from quite a different angle. Holahan introduces the character of Ryan Monahan into the mix. He's a former NYPD cop who is now an insurance investigator. Ryan has quite the skill set here and Holahan quotes eye-opening stats that opens the door to the analytical mind of Ryan. Smart stuff.I've been quite taken with The Widower's Wife for a multitude of reasons. It's fast-paced and gets down to business right away. Holahan provides a peep-hole into the lives of people who have their backs against the wall. You don't even want to blink....you might miss something good.

    If you're looking for an engaging domestic suspense thriller with an inventive storyline, look no further. Tom and Anna Bacon have been accustomed to a lavish lifestyle, the grand mansion, the expensive cars, the wine collection. But now they are facing financial ruin. Tom is unemployed and drinking. Anna is trying to support the family as best she can with a job as an administrative assistant while remaining the main carer for their young daughter, Sophie. But it is hopeless. Foreclosure looms. Credit cards maxed out. The marital relationship strained due to all the pressure. Ryan Monahan is a former NYPD cop turned insurance investigator who is obsessed with statistics. He is asked to look into the death of Anna Bacon to determine whether her life insurance policy worth ten million dollars should be paid out to her husband Tom.Told in alternating chapters from Ryan's third-person point of view in the present and from Anna's first-person point of view in the days leading up to her fall off a cruise ship, The Widower's Wife was a real page-turner I devoured within a day. Author Cate Holahan took a slightly different approach here, which worked very well. I loved Ryan with his analytical mind, frequently quoting probabilities, determinedly wanting to uncover what happened to Anna while trying to get used to his own changed circumstances.A really exciting plot with intriguing characters and a unique story. The only reason I'm not giving this 5 stars is down to a couple of things that I found difficult to believe. I received an ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    While on a cruise ship Anna Bacon falls overboard into the sea but how has this happened, was this a terrible accident or something else? The book alternates between Ana, her husband Tom and Ryan Manahan, a former police Financial Crimes investigator sent to find out the truth. So how did Ana fall, was she pushed, did she slip? As Ryan investigates further he discovers both Ana and her husband Tom have life insurance policies and Ana's life is worth ten million dollars. The only problem for Ryan is that Tom has a concrete alibi so what is really going on? A very enjoyable and an intriguing story, one I would highly recommend.

    I really hate when an author asks me to suspend my common sense and expects me to believe that two people without any common sense at all can successfully defraud an insurance company out of $5 million. I’m giving this book two stars because the author used my favorite word – “penultimate.” I was hopeful at first but as the chapters went on, I became less and less interested in both these characters. SPOILERS: First of all, I despise criminals and defrauding an insurance company is a crime. Second, I’m supposed to believe that two people who didn’t even save enough money from their $1 million+ annual income for their own child’s education, and has spent lavishly on their home, cars and lifestyle, will be able to live off an insurance payout of $5 million for the rest of their lives? They’d blow through that money in a couple of years. The woman is also too stupid to figure out how to use birth control pills, gets pregnant, marries the other genius, and then, again, has unprotected sex and gets pregnant a second time. And I’m supposed to believe these two masterminds are going to walk away with $5 million and not get caught?

    This is a fast-paced read about a woman in jeopardy. I loved the way I never knew what would happen next. There were some really intense scenes and a satisfying villain. I also liked the whole Brazilian angle of the story, which added something unexpected. A good read.

    Ryan Manahan is a former police Financial Crimes officer now turned insurance investigator after being shot. He is very familiar with numbers including odd statistics that come to his mind frequently. His current case has to do with the payment of a $5 million claim to a man whose wife disappeared overboard during a cruise in the Bahamas. This story is told with two storylines intertwined. Ryan's investigation in late November and early December is interspersed with Ana and Tom Bacon's decision in October to defraud the insurance company by taking out big policies and faking his death. Tom is the instigator of the plan. He has lost his very successful job as a trader and they family - Tom, Ana, and three-year-old Sophia - are in danger of losing their million dollar home. Ana has taken a job as an administrative assistant but that doesn't give them near enough to maintain their lifestyle.Tom convinces Ana that this fraud is essential to save their family. But, when only Ana qualifies for a policy, their plans have to change. It is Ana's death that will have to be faked. This was an intriguing story as both the past and the present were woven together. There were lots of surprising revelations throughout the story. It was also quite suspenseful as both Ryan and the reader struggle to untangle all the various threads. I found it a gripping story.

    Unfortunately I cannot see where all these good ratings came from. I just can't find any reason to rate this higher. The story bordered on boredom at times it moved so slowly. And as we are ending the story, there are just too many things happening that are far to hard to believe. And I am fairly liberal with author's usage of the "unlikely". I'd like a better term, but what comes to mind for this ending is that it is "scattered" leaving many thoughts dangling.

    I have to admit...when I agreed to read this book, I didn't know what to expect! But....once I started reading, I didn't want to put this book down. It is quite the page turner. For the last two days I had my nose in this book every chance I got. It was kind of a "Shhh! I'm Reading!" two days at my house this week.This was a fast paced mystery, the action moves along at a crisp pace.The author places her characters like playing cards, shuffles them with sleight-of-hand, and time after time I kept pointing to the wrong card. I changed my mind a few times about the twists and turns and didn't figure out where the story would lead me until the very end!It was a comfortable read for mystery readers who want to spend an enjoyable time with interesting characters. Cate Holahan is a talented writer who knows how to keep the attention of her readers right to the end.A thank you to the publishers who gifted this book to me to read and review. I did not receive any type of compensation for reading and reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers and authors, I am under no obligation to write a positive review.

    Ana Bacon drowned after falling off the deck of a cruise ship. Her husband Tom is eagerly awaiting the 10 million dollar insurance benefit. Into this picture comes Ryan Monahan, a private investigator for ISIS Insurance Company, the carrier for Ana's policy. Ryan's gut tells him that Ana's death is no accident. If Ana took her own life the insurance company does not need to pay out but if this is the case how can Ryan prove it? Maybe she was murdered. Tom has a good alibi for the time that Ana's body went into the water. Ryan, an ex-cop, is looking into all aspects of Ana's life and he feels sure that he'll find answers that prove Ana's death was no accident.Ryan's past is shadowy. We know he served on the police force and was shot in the leg leading to a permanent limp. His wife has left him and taken their daughter across the country. Ryan is a well-spring of statistics dealing with causes of death, reasons for divorce, financial issues, and other interesting topics. His obsession with statistics is interesting and the information he stores in his brain is shared throughout the novel.Ryan explores all aspects of Ana's life. There are her parents who live in Brazil whom Ana supported. They believe that Tom has been physically abusive to her. There is her lecherous boss who has a 'reputation'. There are several people who are serving as alibis for Tom and swear he was somewhere else when Ana went off the cruise ship. There is the additional fact that Tom has been out of work for close to a year and the Bacons are near bankruptcy. Tom and Ana had been living the posh life of a Wall Street executive until Tom was fired. Ana was trying to support Tom, herself, and their daughter on the wages of an administrative assistant. Creditors are all over their backs and they can't keep themselves above water for long. (No pun intended). She certainly had reasons to give up on life.I enjoyed this novel quite a bit. It is a quick read and a page-turner. I didn't see the ending coming and it kept me guessing throughout. I enjoy books like this.

    If you were among the financial elite with a strong hedge fund and suddenly it went all wrong. A deal costing the company billions blasted all over the media what recourse do you have to save your life style and your family from poverty. Looks like these are the opinions facing the Bacon family, Tom, his wife, Ana and their four year old Sophie. Tom, after months of living on the edge of financial disaster, tom comes up with a plan for insurance fraud. They will take a weekend cruise to the Caribbean and Tom will accidentally fall off the ship. Now this solution might seem a bit over the top but if you were being relentlessly pursued by an insurance investigator as well as the financial crimes police and you couldn't face the humiliation of your former colleagues with a bankruptcy then what options do you have left. Indeed, death at sea, you don't need a body, just an alibi for the spouse and some one to raise the alarm. Brief investigation by Caribbean police, it's a walk in the park or to be moe exact a swim in the ocean if all goes well. If all goes well it wouldn't be a mystery, would it. A great read. A very inventive plot. Believable characters. Leave yourself time to finish the book because you won't want to put it done until you get to the end.

    This was a clever book which was a bit different to the average thriller.Ana Bacon falls off a cruise ship. Her husband, Tom, is expecting a $10 million life insurance payout. But Tom has not reckoned on Ryan Monahan. Ryan is a former financial crimes officer who, after an injury, investigates insurance claims for possible fraud. Was Ana's fall a terrible accident, a suicide or maybe even murder? Ryan is relentless in investigating the Bacons and soon uncovers financial difficulties and a not very grieving husband already possibly in the arms of another. But does it mean anything?The story is told from the present POV of Ryan and the past POV of Ana in the weeks leading up to the fall off the ship. As a story-telling device this worked well. The revelations by Ana complement what Ryan discovers as he investigates, draws in helpers and vows to uncover the truth no matter the outcome for his insurance company. But does he? Oh the tangled webs we weave...The tension builds slowly but surely throughout the book and you are cleverly made to question your own conclusions as the story unfolds. Very enjoyable.

    A great mystery thriller without one million "F" bombs and unnecessary overly sexualized scenes? Yes please!!! This book is PROOF that authors still can write amazingly entertaining, suspenseful, dangerous literature without sounding like sailors. It was a bit slow to start which I now actually appreciate as other thriller authors often jump in too quickly to the action without properly setting the stage. Although it wasn't insanely difficult to figure out who did what, it was terribly difficult figuring out HOW. I was still in the dark 50% of the way through on who, but I was perplexed until the big reveal as to how. Definitely worth reading!!!! First 70 pages are slow. But once you get past that- around page 130, you won't put it down the rest of the day!!!

    Loved this book! A really good page turning story that had me right from the start! I couldn't put it down- practically binge read it over the weekend. Liked the alternating chapters from the investigator's viewpoint and Ana's; the story always kept moving forward. Would've given it 4.5 stars, but I had too many questions in my mind about how this would actually work in real life (Okay....I know this is fiction and I need to suspend belief, but still.......)I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a good, quick read!Thanks to Netgalley and Crooked Lane publishers for the opportunity to read an advance digital review copy!

He was determined, clever and not an easy man to fool... which was Tom Bacon's dogged intentions in order to collect the five million dollar insurance payment from the policy he talked his wife, and mother of his 3 year old child, into purchasing just prior to the cruise. There were a couple of things that I found impossible to believe that brought down the rating but overall it was an enjoyable read with several "I didn't see that coming moments.

    I read this book as Hurricane Irma blew outside my windows. It was a riveting read. The characters are vivid and the plot twisty-turny enough to keep me guessing. The writing is excellent and because I like a slight literary bent, it really drew me in. Holahan manages to keep a great plot going without compromising her talent. Five stars!

    3.5 rounded up to 4. An enjoyable listen (5 stars for the narrator) & 3 for a story that was very easy to guess the next twist in the story. Recommended for fans of Mary HigginsClark or if you need a break from all-consuming suspenseful thrillers, and just want to enjoy a good mystery with a likable, non-dysfunctional heroine.

    So you know how life sometimes just grabs you and you don’t finish a book. No matter how hard you try it you can't get to the ending?Well this time that was not me!It took me 3 weeks to finish this book and it became a challenge. I would not give up, no matter what. I made this decision.We fought we lied we sneak we climbed we did what we had to, to survive. But finished we did.My Experience:You are seated in a Gone Girl type narration. That person’s turn then the other person’s turn. Which side are you on? Decide!A retired FBI agent now an insurance policy investigator (much more exciting than it sounds) is called in for a case. A wife and mother Ana fell overboard while on a cruise ship. Apparently, people don’t just fall from cruise ships, though. The odds of it is astronomical and our investigator here is all about the odds being fair.My usual metaphor (I do this almost with each review so now it has become a label) :It starts off a bit uncertain. Kind of like a new kid arriving at high school and you are not sure what group this kid will fall in. Will I like them, will they annoy me, will they make my heart beat, are they part dragon, will they like my phoenix feather collection, you know normal questions. Then a bit of time goes by and you learn where they fit in. Nobody is being bullied. No mean girls are picking on them no vampires are trying to eat them whilst pretending to be dating them. So you kind of just go oh, okay. However initially you started to talk to the person so now you have a relationship and you feel obligated to finish the conversation.What I liked:I liked how it was subtle and kept you guessing until the end. You didn't know where you were standing with the book.What I did not like:There was potential for more. I feel like the story could have gone deeper and more cut through. There was still a lot of development left to happen. I feel like the investigator stays the same throughout the story he ponders a lot and he makes good points. Drama happens around him left and right that should lead to some big character development but it doesn't. I didn't like the lack of conclusions throughout the story. Rating* * *3 snowflakes.SincerelySnow*******Finished it.(Cool face)Will post review on Wednesday. Still decding on the rating.

    Oh My… Cate Holahan did it again! This is the second book of hers that I have read and with both I have not been able to stop reading. The drama, the mystery, the relationships, and the who-dun-it were absolutely wonderful. The relationships between the characters were spot on. Perfectly realistic, perfectly scarey (sometimes), and just perfect all the way around. The drama and mystery was intriguing enough without going so far out of bounds that it seemed unreal. While reading sometimes a character just hits your heart. With The Widower’s Wife it was Sophia. Sophia is Anna and Tom’s young daughter. With every twist and turn I kept her in my thoughts wondering how this would affect her. Being young most of the things happened around her and without her knowledge yet somehow I knew some of the happenings would stick with her. I loved how Anna’s every action was to keep Sophia safe in a happy lifestyle. The Widower’s Wife is a fast paced thriller that definitely keeps the reader on their toes. The story is a twist on a familiar type of story. There is no question of who the bad guy is and even knowing this I could not put the book down. Pick up your own copy of The Widower’s Wife immediately. I guarantee you won’t be able to put it down.

    Actually, this book lost me when her boss tried to force himself on her, and she goes home and immediately has sex with her husband. Right. I did, however, finish the book. I never ended up liking any of the characters, and it's books like this that burn me out, and make me not want to read for a while.

    This well-told story had so many twists and turns that I found it nearly impossible to put down. Though the far-fetched ending didn't quite measure up for me, the story kept me guessing and turning pages all the way through, so this one it a four-star read for me. I would definitely read more by this author.

    Once you start this book it’s not likely to sit on your night table for very long, you won’t want to put it down. As I read, echoing in my mind was the famous quote “Oh! What a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive.” It starts with financial troubles for an out of work trader, used to living large; a million dollar home, luxury cars and whimsical spending. He made a mistake and is forever considered not employable. He and his wife are now in danger of losing everything. They need a lot of money and fast. In desperation, they decide on insurance fraud. As their scheme to bilk millions from the insurance industry rolls out, complications set in. I suspected a few of the twists early on, but I was so wrapped up in the characters, it didn’t matter. Recommend.

    3.5 stars - another solid suspense novel from Cate Hollahan! I'm totally going against the grain here, but I liked this one more than Lies She Told. The plot felt like it flowed more smoothly and I think, for whatever reason, I just enjoyed the basic premise of the story a bit more. It didn't hurt that I buddy read this one with Lindsay (Check her out!https://lindsaysbookreviews.wordpress... ), which is always fun! I enjoyed the character of Ana, and while I questioned some (okay, a lot) of her choices, for the most part I could work my way around to her perspective. An entertaining read!

    When a supposedly abused wife and mother goes missing from aboard a cruise ship, an insurance investigator comes to investigate her philandering husband. This is my third book in recent months told in alternating points of view and I think I like this writing style. It's a fun suspense thriller that kept me interested until the end. I know this book has had mixed reviews but I liked the story line and the insurance investigator's point of view. I am thinking my accounting degree with criminal justice minor probably played a part in this. I actually enjoyed all of his statistical data and analysis. I'm a data geek.This is my second book by this author and I will continue to seek out her work.A quote that hit home... "There’s a cliché that compares kids to sponges. It’s right, but for the wrong reason. Kids don’t soak up knowledge; they absorb their parents’ emotions."

    This is one of those books that have one mumbling to oneself "really." It is twisty, but I believe the author foreshadowed her plot intents way too clearly, and unbelievably. I hoped she would redeem herself with a dynamic ending, but, alas was rather disappointed. I feel more like a 3.5 but that's not a rating option. Gut feeling while reading was on par with watching a train wreck. You just can't help but continue hoping for the best.

    Great book. The way it flipped back and forth between perspectives could be a little off-putting at times but overall a great story. I figured it out close to the end but it was great writing how it played out. I wish the end could have been a bit neater - but interesting to think about how it may have worked out. perhaps a sequel?
