cracks knuckles and neck Okay, suspense is admittedly not my usual forte BUT having read about vampires and a dystopian future by this author I am going into it with sincere optimism She s always been solid about her backstory and I would love to see how that talent applies to a woman with a deep, dark past rushing up on her.Firstly, snazzy cover Minimalistic but still eye catching and subtly emphasize someone with a double life who must confront the darker aspects of it.Regarding the pages betw [...]
This book is crazy I m choosing to blame the book instead of my own lack of responsibility for my exhaustion today, because it kept me up late I needed to see how it ended It s definitely outlandish, but it s so absorbing and flows so well that I didn t mind Please take my advice and stay away from spoilers on this one I really believe they ll ruin the experience Some of the twists left me stunned, and I m usually pretty hard to surprise.On the other side of the world from our dear Anna, a woman [...]
What a great thriller I have read two other novels by Shalini Boland, The Girl From the Sea, and The Best Friend and I enjoyed this one just as much Boland is a great writer This story begins with what appears to be an accident while a couple is on a vacation in Barbados in January 2017 Barbados seas are warm and refreshing Katie wants to spot dolphins and goes for a swim even though her husband would rather lie on the beach Katie, a woman in her late 20 s, is killed in a boating accident not lo [...]
Since I discovered Shalini Boland I ve become addicted to her booka And I didn t even like thrillers before She has a masterful way of writting, and I love how she settles the drama and the mistery and then she begans to feed us little clues, snipets of information and everything begans to evolve and morph in front of your eyes It is amazing.This book is about Anna, a woman who marries a millonaire and holds a secret from him She plans on telling him when she is sent a gruesome pic of a dead wom [...]
I would like to thank Shalini Boland for providing me with a digital ARC of this book Please see my review featured on Diva Reads
Finished reading April 21st 2017 The trouble with secrets is that you never know how the other person is going to react A copy of this book was kindly provided to me by the author in exchange for an honest review Thank you view spoiler I became an instant fan of Shalini Boland s thrillers as soon as I I finished reading The Girl From The Sea last year I ve been lucky enough to receive an ARC copy of The Millionaire s Wife, which is already my third thriller by this author My expectations were se [...]
If you re looking for a suspenseful read, look no further When Will marries Anna, he has no idea of the secrets she holds, but secrets have a way of coming outcially when a deranged ex knows them too This book made me feel like I d been slapped in the face several times with its WOW didn t see that coming moments.
Anna, an ordinary girl, met and married Will, a rich man, though she didn t know that at the time She d been involved with Fin, a boy she met at school and they eventually moved in together Eventually, things fell apart, as they do, and her best friend Sian saw her through the worst of it Now she has the relationship she s always wanted and the money doesn t hurt A single text message throws it all up in the air.This is just the sort of book I love Characters I can believe in, a plot which pulls [...]
Shalini Boland is a skilful writer of suspense and The Millionaire s Wife is as tense and gripping as her first two of this genre The Girl From The Sea and The Best Friend.The story is set over two timelines now 2017, and ten years earlier, 2007 when all the characters first met It dramatically starts with the death of Fin s wife when she is run over by a high speed motor boat while holidaying in Barbados A few days later, Anna, newly married to Will and was many years ago the girlfriend of Fin, [...]
Shalini Boland has once again knocked it out of the park with a super suspenseful story Anna is living her dream life with her wonderful husband, Will She receives a text with a picture of a dead woman who has lost half of her face and is immediately hit with the fact that life as she knows it is over Why Who is this woman and what does her death have to do with Anna Through flashbacks from the past we slowly learn about the horror that is coming her way Could not put this one down, excellent bo [...]
The Millionaire s Wife by Shalini Boland How far would you go to be with the one you love Lie Cheat KILL When Anna Blackwell sees a news report about the death of a woman on the other side of the world, she knows her greatest fear is about to come true She knows it s her turn next G Absolutely fantastic read with brilliant characters I was not expecting that 5 Highly recommended Tbc on fb.
Despite falling within the suspense category, this was a surprisingly easy read I enjoyed it for the most part but found the writing and characters behaviours too obvious throughout Anna is married to the rich and successful Will and life is good That is until her past begins to crawl out from the woodwork and she is forced to confront the lies and secrets she had buried beforehand I thought the storyline was good and fairly unique although the characters are a bit too one dimensional for my lik [...]
Read all my reviews at brainfartsandbooks.wordpressWow, this was the first book I ve read by Shalini Boland and it was a real page turner I ve had a few dud books lately so when I started reading this one I was so excited to find that I couldn t put it down.Anna is a beautiful girl with a crazy ex boyfriend named Fin But back in high school, EVERYONE wanted to be with Fin After high school, the couple has a hard time making ends meet and goes their separate ways Fast forward three years and Anna [...]
Really enjoyed this I was hooked from the start the young couple, how they managed or didn t, then life goes on The teaser taste of badness, then at 1 point Woah WhatSuch a good oomph But the story is fully rounded, it came together and was great Well worth buying and reading.
If anyone can have me reading until 2am and finishing a book in less than 48hrs in the school holidays its this authorive five stars from me Shalini Boland has a lovely talent for drawing you into a story and giving you well developed characters bit by bit and then just as you think you know where the story is heading she throws in a paragraph or even just a sentence that sweeps the rug from under you and turns everything upside down The story was intriguing in a way that is impossible to explai [...]
I should start by saying I m a HUGE Shalini Boland fan I ve read everything she s ever published and loved it all And The Millionaire s Wife is no exception It had me on the edge of my seat from the very beginning, sucking me in at every turn Well rounded characters and a plot that is simply brilliant, The Millionaire s Wife is full of twists and turns, which will leave you desperately wanting to read of Shalini s books I know I want thrillers like this
Anna and Sian are not in with the popular crowd at school but Fin is every schoolgirl s dream Anna cannot believe her luck when he picks her Years later Anna s life seems perfect until the past catches up with herIntroductionA happy couple on their holiday Everything seems fine until she decides to take a swim and a motorboat tragically ends a young life A few days later, Will is having a surprise 30th birthday party His loving wife Anna has organised it all, including the fabulous present a 196 [...]
Anna has a past A past that we don t know about We meet her happy with her husband and in the past with her then boyfriend as the chapters alternate between the two time frames A secret that comes back to haunt her This is a very well written book that grabs you and doesn t want to let go I had to keep turning the pages to find out what happened Characters are strong and likeable in Anna s and Will s case and this to me gives the book a good solid foundation which I always like You think you kno [...]
Boland biraz fast food tadinda bir yazar Betimleme isine girmeyip, heyecan seviyesini hic dusurmeden bir cirpida okutuyor kendini Tarzinda rahatsiz etmeyen bir nokta Seviyorum The Millionaire s Wife i da iki oturusta bitirmis oldum Her sayfasinda ayri olay, ayri heyecan Son zamanlarda genel olarak hep psikolojik gerilim okuyorum Ters koselere alisigim ama bu sefer hakikaten saskinlikla okudum.
Wow Shalini Boland I would call that a hat trick , 3 fantastic novels in a row I love the way you don t waste my time with pages of useless mutterings of the murderer or the victim I love the pace of your stories, sweeping me along so I don t get bored and put it down even for a minute I did think The Millionaire s Wife was of a holiday read than the other two as it s a fair bit smaller in size So much so I imagine reading The Millionaire s Wife lying beside a pool, cute waiters bringing me fru [...]
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review What a thriller She had me at the first sentence I have to say I thought I knew the direction this story was going go Then the jaw dropping moment happened Anna is currently with Will, but she has a past, and it s a big one This is totally twisted and excellently written Unputdownable
Suspenseful and intriguing What a wonderous web we weave, when at first we start to deceive I ve not read anything by this author before, but she gripped my attention and I was counting down the hours until I could pick up my kindle again and with work, a 5 year old and a part time masters course, that s no mean feat
Really stupid girl Anna meets Fin when she is 15 They are classmates She has excellent grades and could attend any university of her choice but insists on moving in with Fin after graduation They struggle to pay bills and eventually their relationship goes from bad to worse.I hate reading a book where the main female character is so weak and stupid It was impossible for me to even care what happened to Anna since I did not like her at all So many horrible events took place because she was too st [...]
Sad I really wanted to like the follow up books to The Girl from the Sea by this author This was just bad The story was far fetched, the characters were uninteresting and the attempt at a plot twist didn t work.The writing didn t work either What does She pulled a face mean Is this a real expression She also used set my teeth in edge than once and other cliches.I feel that her first book was too good and she rushed to write follow up books in a hurry.My advice slow down, make it worth it Don t [...]
I would like to thank Helen at TBC for giving me the opportunity to read this which I voluntarily reviewed.I read and enjoyed The Girl from the Sea so I was delighted to be able to read this.It s a real page turner and definitely a CPID can t put it down book I found myself reading quickly as I was desperate to find out what was going to happen.Although it moved from past to present it was easy to follow.The characters were all believable but I found myself particularly drawn to Anna You can fee [...]
This is another triumph for Shalini Boland.Anna and Will are married, but something happens to threaten that, when a murder on the other side of the world, rocks Anna s life.She sees a report on television about a woman who died on holiday in Barbados It is not the name of the woman that is shocking, but her husband.The story begins when Anna is at school and meets bad boy Fin Her loving parents need to return to their native Sweden and she refuses to go with them Nor will she finish her educati [...]
A good psychological thriller if somewhat predictable Anna Blackwell has been happily married to Will for about a year and they are having a party for his 30th birthday when Anna gets a text from her old boyfriend that pulls the rug from under her feet.Anna has quite a few secrets and she has been trying to work out how to tell Will about them when she s thrown into a panic I won t say for fear of giving spoilers, suffice it to say that things rapidly go from bad to worse and she doesn t know h [...]
Wow Another great read from Shalini Boland This book had me hooked as soon as I read the sneak preview of chapter one.Anna is in love with her husband and lives an idyllic lifestyle in a beautiful cliff top property The fly in the ointment is a secret from her past, something she is about to share with her husband until a shocking text forces her to change tack.The story is set in 2017, with an alternate timeline set in 2007 relating to the secrets of Anna s past The pacing is swift and the susp [...]
I m not entirely sure how to put my thoughts together on this one quite yet I liked it, but I also had a tough time relating to the main character I understand that sometimes in a relationship you don t need to share every detail of your past with your significant other but like her husband said, he doesn t know her at all And why wait so long to involve the police when things get this far out of hand
Anna is happily married to Will, a wealthy restaurateur, but on his thirtieth birthday she receives a chilling text message that brings a past she thought she had left behind tumbling into the present As we read about how Anna deals to this new threat to her home and security, we find out what happened to Anna when she was fifteen and embarked on her first serious relationship It seems her past is not done with her yet I became totally engrossed in this suspense thriller from the outset as Anna [...]
