Review: The Secret Lives of Married Women

The Secret Lives of Married Women
The Secret Lives of Married Women by Elissa Wald

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Disclaimer: I won a free copy of this book on GoodReads as a part of the First Reads giveaway program. I’d like to extend my thanks to GoodReads, the author, and the publisher.

That was different. That is, while I didn't know whether to expect a "hard case crime" noir type story or a story about repressed sexuality, I didn't get either. Or I got both. Sorta.

Anyway, it wasn't what I would have expected had I any expectations. It was good, however. I did find there was more "hard" than "crime", but then again....well. I don't want to spoil anything.

What I can say is that it was intriguing, and that the prose was excellent. Wald's flow and style bumped this thing a whole star by itself. It was very comfortable to read, even during uncomfortable moments. Yes, I'm being vague.

There is so much to explore here that it just needs to be explored. Rather than put it all in a review, I'd rather tell people to just read the book itself.
