Publisher's Summary

The brilliant new psychological drama from the Sunday Times best-selling author of The Perfect Girlfriend

How far would you go to fulfil a promise to your oldest friend?

Nina, in the final days of her illness, asks her best friend, Marie, to look after her family when she's gone. And Marie does everything she can to step into Nina's shoes after her friend's tragic death. She tries to do the best by Nina, tries to be there for Nina's young children, tries to support Nina's grieving husband, tries to keep their lives on track despite their terrible loss. 

But when Marie discovers a dark secret that Nina had kept concealed, she is forced to confront the past, and those shared secrets come back to haunt her, too. 

Tense, heart-breaking and utterly gripping, The Last Wife explores the real nature of love and friendship - and just how fragile every relationship can be in the face of the secrets we hide from each other.

Not a patch on The perfect Girlfriend.

I’m sorry to say this second book by author Karen Hamilton is not a patch on the first. The story lost its way after a promising beginning. I almost didn’t finish it. Shame as I was a big fan of The Perfect Girlfriend and recommended to lots of people.
