It’s here! Pretty Little Wife the twisty thriller of domestic suspense you’ve been hearing about for months is finally in reader hands. In a STARRED REVIEW, Booklist called it “A page-turner built on skillfully layered plotting and an intriguing protagonist.”
But who is Darby Kane? Darby is HelenKay! But while you can count on romance with a happy ending from HelenKay Dimon, a Darby Kane book is a very different kind of book, hence the different name. Pretty Little Wife is much darker, and romance is not the main theme. This is a thriller, through and through. It starts with a wife, unraveling secrets, and a dead husband. The end is not guaranteed, and getting there is a fast-paced ride.
HelenKay is totally thrilled her thriller is out! Find her on Twitter celebrating the release. And check out Pretty Little Wife for the answer to the question: Shouldn’t a dead husband stay dead? Read an excerpt then buy yours in print, ebook, or audio.

But wait, who is Darby Kane? We’re so glad you asked, because Darby is HelenKay! Some things haven’t changed. HelenKay Dimon books deliver romance with a happy ending in three romance subgenres: Romantic Suspense, Erotic Romance, and Contemporary Romance. No matter what happens in a HelenKay Dimon book, you are guaranteed a ride that will end with people building a life together and working toward a Happily Ever After.
A Darby Kane book is a very different kind of book. No promise of happy endings or romance. These are twisty thrillers and domestic suspense, and HelenKay is so excited to announce Darby’s debut! Her first book, Pretty Little Wife, will release on Feb 16, 2021 in print, ebook, and audio.
A wife, unraveling secrets and a dead husband…and that’s just the beginning. Check out Pretty Little Wife for the answer to the question: Shouldn’t a dead husband stay dead? Read an excerpt then pre-order yours!
