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.
