A FAIRY-TALE BEGINNING.
All her life, Bailey Browne dreamed of a storybook rescue: a knight in shining armor swooping in to bring her and her mother to a better life. Then, suddenly, there he is: handsome, wonderful Logan Abbott. Despite their ten-year difference age, Bailey's working-class upbringing and his of privilege, they fall deeply in love. Marriage quickly follows.

A PAST THAT WON'T STAY BURIED.
But when Logan brings her home to his family's stately horse farm in Louisiana, Bailey's dreams of happily-ever-after begin to unravel. A tragic family history she knew nothing about surfaces, plus there are whisperings about the disappearance of Logan's first wife...and rumors about other women from the area who have gone missing. When yet another woman mysteriously vanishes, all signs point to Logan's involvement. Bailey wants to ignore the gossip but even she can't ignore themounting evidence against her husband. Ultimately, it's up to Bailey to make a desperate choice: believe what everyone says--or bet her life on the man she loves...but who she still doesn't really know.

From the author of Justice for Sara , Erica Spindler's The First Wife is a thrilling new novel that will have you gasping on every page.

True chick lit, pun intended. I don't usually read this sort of book, but picked it up as an antidote to some heavier reading I also had. The characters are, except for Logan's sister Raine, cardboard, including Logan and Bailey themselves. Billy Ray is vastly overdone. I won't be reading any more by Spindler. I was disgusted with myself for finishing it.

I really enjoyed this book. Had a few real good twists to keep you engaged, even when you think you have it all solved, you don't. I would give it four stars easily.

Ever feel like you're reading the book an author had to write to fulfill their contract with their publisher? This was oddly mediocre - all her other books are much better.

Just an Ok read. I found the story repeated itself more than necessary. It would have been more interesting if some of the characters were more developed. I think she has written better.
