As a child,
Bailey Browne dreamed of a knight in shining armor swooping in to rescue
her and her mother. As she grows older, those dreams transform,
becoming ones of a mysterious stranger who will sweep her off her feet
and whisk her away from her ordinary existence. Then, suddenly, there he
is. Despite the ten year difference in their ages, her working class
upbringing and his of privilege, Logan Abbott and Bailey fall deeply in
love. Marriage quickly follows.
But when Logan brings her home to
his horse farm in Louisiana, a magnificent estate on ninety wooded
acres, her dreams of happily-ever-after begin to unravel. A tragic
family history she knew nothing about surfaces, plus whisperings about
the disappearance of his first wife, True, and rumors about the women
from the area who have gone missing—and when another woman disappears,
all signs point to her husband's involvement.
At first Bailey ignores the
whispers, even circumstantial evidence against Logan mounts. But
finally, Bailey must make a choice: believe what everyone says—or bet
her life on the man she loves, but is realizing she hardly knows.
From the author of Justice for Sara, Erica Spindler's The First Wife is a thrilling new novel that will have you gasping on every page.
