War of the Wives

War of the Wives by Tamar Cohen

This title will be auto-delivered to your Kindle on January 27, 2015.

Think marriage means happily-ever-after? Think again… 
Selina and Lottie are complete opposites. Where Selina is poised but prudish, Lottie is quirky and emotional. Selina is the dutiful mother of three children and able manager of their stylish suburban home. Lottie lives with her eccentric teenage daughter in a small city apartment fit to bursting with color and happy chaos. But these women also have one shocking similarity: they're married to the same man…and they've just found out he's dead. 
Selina has been married to Simon Busfield for twenty-eight years, Lottie for seventeen. Neither knows a thing about the other until the day of Simon's funeral, where the scandalous truth is revealed in front of everyone they know. Another wife, another family… And they've onlyjust scratched the surface of Simon's incredible betrayal. 
With dark humor and razor-sharp wit, Cohen expertly unravels a story of deception and betrayal, where two very different families will discover they are entwined in ways that will change them all forever. 

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Women's FictionJanuary 19, 2015
This review is from: The War of the Wives (Hardcover)
*I was given this book free in exchange for an honest review*
This was an emotional rollercoaster. This book is set up in parts. Each part is another step in the loss/greif scale. I.E. Depression, Anger.. etc.
The story of a woman who loses her husband of almost 30 years and finds out he had a whole other family makes for a great story. I can feel for both Selina and Lottie. Simon was able to hide so much from each of them. This story will make you laugh, make you cry. It was well written. Though set in England, I occasionally felt put off by the lingo. But it doesn't take away from this great tale. We watch as both women learn to deal with their new lives and with each other. We see them learn to grow without their husband that seemed to be their worlds.
You can feel the pain both of these women go through. The author has a way of making it real. There's twists that you find out at the end of the book that just make you sit back and say Wow. This truly is a fantastic story for any woman to enjoy. If you want a book that will make you appreciate your life a little more, this is it. It's not a romance, it's not a mystery, it's just a great piece of Women's Fiction that will immerse you in a tale of pain, betrayal and deception. I think women everywhere can relate and will enjoy this novel.
