The Replacement Wife by Britney King
Thank you to the author for my free copy in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
Goodreads Synopsis: From the bestselling author of The Social Affair comes a new riveting, powerful psychological thriller which offers a savage look into a utopian cultish society where beauty and perfection are valued at all costs.
Widower Tom Anderson is a savant with more affinity for numbers than people. Problem is, one is a lonely number. Thankfully, he solved for X by finding the perfect woman. It wasn’t easy. Tom is very specific. He has to be.
Having checked ‘find trophy wife’ off his list, life was moving along swimmingly. Until that perfect woman let it slip—she has a past. One she kept hidden, almost perfectly.
Sure, she lied—she fudged the numbers. Most women do.
Now, Tom has buyers’ remorse and according to cult rules only two options: get rid of her—or single-handedly erase her past.
She’s a liar. But she does keep house well. And she makes a mean lasagna.
Review: I had the pleasure of reading The Social Affair with Black Heart Reads back in May and became enamored with New Hope Church. I read The Replacement Wife a few weeks before my stop on the blog tour for Speak of the Devil. I love that these books play off one another, but that they are also their own entity. I really enjoyed The Social Affair, but I absolutely LOVED and devoured The Replacement Wife! Tom and Mel have the most functional dysfunctional relationship you could imagine, and I adored Mel, which I would not have anticipated after meeting her in The Social Affair.
Britney writes some of the most badass female characters that I’ve ever encountered. While the New Hope Church books can each be read as a stand alone, I urge you to read them in order so you can fully experience and appreciate the intricate web that Britney King weaves.
