Cover reveal: The Good Wife
I am so excited to reveal the chilling cover and retail description for The Good Wife and to let you know it is available for preorder NOW! I found my inspiration for The Good Wife after watching the intense 2002 thriller, High Crimes, starring Ashley Judd and Morgan Freeman, which tells the tale of an attorney who defends her husband in military court, after he is accused of war crimes. The story of The Good Wife was born from a single what if: What if a wife defended her husband in a murder trial? What would motivate her to stand beside him? And what would she do if she began to suspect he was guilty? The Good Wife is a standalone psychological thriller, and I can’t wait to share it with you.
Do you ever really know what goes on behind closed doors?
When the cops pull up outside our modest family home and walk up our lawn strewn with our daughter’s toys, I turn to see the look on my husband’s face, and I know he’s done something wrong. In that moment, I have no idea how bad it is, or that I will end up doing something much, much worse…
All marriages have their challenges, right? But as I watch my husband being put into the back of a cop car, I find myself wondering if I ever knew him at all. Could handsome, easy-going Theo really have killed a girl on our block? Could I have got the sweet, loving father, who makes up lullabies to sing my baby to sleep, so wrong?
Most women would leave him—take their child and run for the hills. But not me. Theo and I have been together a long time. I know his secrets. And he knows all of mine. Well, most of them. I’m the best lawyer in this town and I’m his only chance. So I choose to defend him, whatever the cost.
When I learn more about the young woman found dead in a dumpster outside of my husband’s music studio, I feel my heart pound in my chest. I know her, and I know how close she was to my husband. As a local nanny, they often bumped into each other at the children’s playground, and he even invited her over for dinner once. Was I wrong to be so trusting? And why did he lie about where he was the night she was killed?
As the police begin to pick apart our relationship, they don’t paint a pretty picture, and even some of our so-called friends begin to tell stories. It feels like my whole life has been a lie.
Can I really trust the man I love?
And when push comes to shove, can he trust me?
The Good Wife will be released on October 25th and is available for preorder now!
