A Reliable Wife
by Robert Goolrick
A novel set in the early 1900s about a wealthy man who places an ad in a Chicago newspaper looking for a "reliable wife." A woman responds, saying she is honest and simple, and it turns out she is not. She wants his money and plans to kill him for it. She goes to great lengths to deceive him, but in the end, he is the one with the upper hand.
The description on the back of the book is as simple as my synopsis above and left me hanging and wanting more. It's hard to say much about the story without giving away the end. I can say that I enjoyed it and found it passionate, suspenseful and complex. The story panned out in a surprising way and kept me turning the pages until the juicy end. Just remember, you don't really know someone until money comes into play.
Do I Recommend? If you are looking for a quick, easy to read novel with a twist, yes!
My Rating: 4/5
