The perfect house or the perfect lie?
The moment my husband showed me Cliffside—a sleek and modern glass home perched on the edge of the jagged Big Sur clifftops—I fell in love. And right there and then I made a pact with myself. I am never leaving this house.
But when my husband was killed on the perilous roads leading up to the house, weeks after we moved in, I had a decision to make—leave the home I love and start a new life or stay and shut myself off from the world? I am never leaving this house.
As I pieced together my shattered life, my mind began to play tricks on me. Footsteps along the beach, leading to my home, then blood-red flowers left on my doorstep with a note that read Looking at you. So I retreated back to the safety of my glass refuge once again. I am never leaving this house.
But now, as I stare out of the towering windows of my perfect home, I know there is someone out there staring back. I know that they are watching my every move, waiting to make me pay for my past mistakes.

This novel had my heart pumping like mad! As the tension built, I found myself holding my breath. The psychological thriller ramped up, then the thrill took over, then more thrill and action. It just didn’t hold up so if you start this book, expect to be consumed by it.
The setting was amazing. I had such a beautiful picture in my head of the stunning house on a a cliff that had the most amazing view and it was idyllic. I loved the descriptions too as they were so well written.
I enjoyed reading the parts going back to the main character’s past which showed how she ended up at the house. They nicely blended in with the current timeline which was peppered with secrets and deceptions.
If you enjoy a psychological thriller that really gets under your skin and a book that demands to stay in your hands until you’ve read the final words, then this is it! I thoroughly recommend ‘The Wife’s House.’
Thanks for reading!
