The New Husband by D.J. Palmer

Release Date - April 14, 2020



If you've never been to Lake Winnipesaukee, it's a gorgeous lake surrounded by small towns with museums, churches, and historic buildings dotting the shores. Wolfeboro is the town I am most familiar with, and it became what I envisioned as I read The New Husband.

When her husband disappears, Nina Garrity is left to pick up the pieces. The assumption is that Glen fell into the lake while fishing. He may have hit his head, which explains the blood on the boat, but his body's never been recovered. It's been two years and Nina's growing fond of the new man in her life. Simon Fitch, a local teacher, is perfect. He's great with her children, and he's devoted to her. He has plenty of money to buy her things and assures he she doesn't have to work.

The problem is that Nina's daughter doesn't get along with Simon and seems determined to drive a wedge between them. Getting Maggie to accept that her father's gone and that Simon is exactly what the family needs is Nina's goal. Maggie's equally determined to prove that Simon is not the man her mom thinks he is.

Here's another story that I read in one sitting. It made for another late night, but it was worth it. While I found Nine naive several times, I loved Maggie's strength and determination. As secrets are revealed and the reader starts to see what's really happening, you'll be on the edge of your seat. There's a lot of tension, plenty of chills, and characters that you can't help but cheer on for one reason or another.
