Book review: The Last Wife by Karen Hamilton

Friday, July 3, 2020 Permalink

The Perfect Girlfriend by Karen Hamilton, released in 2018, came as a bit of surprise and I enjoyed it far more than I expected. I comment in that review that it offered something a bit new. Something fresh.

Hamilton’s new novel, The Last Wife is similarly twisty. Again she gives us an unreliable narrator (who we grow to like, or at least understand), a support cast who have their own secrets and adds in a few twists when we think we’re on the home stretch.

Book review: The Perfect Girlfriend by Karen Hamilton

I must admit I was feeling a bit reticent when I started this book. I’d read the blurb and there was a bit of media around its release but I wasn’t sure I could be bothered with another bunny-boiling spurned lover.

However… The Perfect Girlfriend starts off a bit differently than expected and it kinda sets the scene for the rest of the book.
