Description

Grabs you immediately and keeps you guessing right up until the surprise ending!

She thought they had the perfect marriage....

Tamra never dreamed she would marry someone like Mike Mitchell: handsome, rich, a wonderful husband...until she finds out that Mike is having an affair. But Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, and Mike Mitchell should have remembered that before he made a fool of her. Because Tamra knows something about Mike. Something he did. Something evil. And she was prepared to carry the secret to her grave.

Not anymore.

To make matters worse, Mike's daughter Madison has come to visit for a few days, and Madison doesn't like Tamra. Well, that's too bad, because Tamra doesn't have time to argue. She's too busy ruining Mike's life while remaining, on the surface at least, the perfect, loyal wife.

But when Tamra's plan spirals out of control, she finds that things are not what they seem.

And now, it's too late.

    I don't really know what to say... It was a disappointing as technically there wasn't point WHY? everything was good and hidden and then she decided to just open the Pandora box... For what??? There was a twist at the end and I didn't suspect this turn so that's good but in general I can't say I liked it that much.

    Great book! Kept me hooked the entire time. Never saw “that” coming!
  • (4/5)
    Pretty good. I did not expect that ending. However, I found the main character/narrator super annoying.
  • (4/5)
    I really enjoyed this book with all of its twists and great storyline!
  • (5/5)
    Could Not put this book down! I was not crazy about the final ending, but the twists and surprises throughout made up for that!
  • (3/5)
    This was a reasonably entertaining book, it has a decent twist to it however if your one of those readers that expects everything to make sense as it would in real life you may find yourself disappointed in this book. I myself enjoyed the liberties taken to create a narrative as I fully believe fiction writing can take real life fact and bend it to it's fictional will to make a story work, within reason. This was kept within reason. I will read more from this author. It's a page turner but also an easy listen where I don't have to be super invested to follow the narrative.

    Flat narration again for a novel by Ms Barelli. Could have been better and some life put into the story with another narrator. Pretty good twist at the end
  • (4/5)
    I figured out the ending pretty early on but I really enjoyed this story. As others noted, the narration cut off at the end of chapters from time to time but I don’t feel that I missed out on any content. I would recommend.
  • (5/5)
    I just really like her mysteries there is always something that I’m not expecting
  • (3/5)
    It’s really annoying how the last few words of each chapter cut off before skipping to the next chapter.
  • (3/5)
    Enjoyed the story. But really disliked that it cut short towards the end of each chapter. So you missed some of the book.
  • (3/5)
    A page turner but lands a bit flat to me.
  • (1/5)
    The book was promising and started off well enough. However, halfway into it, it feels like the writer gave up. I feel like my face is in a permanent wince from trying to make sense of the narrative. Also, I do not know if it's the narrator or the written dialogue, but I have no sympathy for the main character. Tamara is very unlikable. It feels like some kid with a big dreams tried to write a book. Lots of cliche sayings and 20-something lingo throughout the book. I almost turned it off with only one hour left. I figured out what happened early on in spite of the main character redundantly hashing out. Oh, plot twist! The plot literally changes in the last two chapters.
  • (3/5)
    I listened to the entire story, but I can't say I was ever really invested into the characters. It was an okay book.
  • (3/5)
    I love Natalie Barelli but this was my least favorite book of hers. The audio recording is annoying because it will switch to the next chapter and cut off the final words of the sentence. As for the story, it features my least favorite characters that even the ending couldn’t redeem for me. All in all it’s worth a listen.
  • (5/5)
    This story keeps you guessing. I couldn’t wait to get in my car for my commute see what happens next. He really feel for the characters involved.
  • (1/5)
    So bored. I hate giving up on a book, it's very rare for me... but after a couple of hours I just couldn't listen to the waffle anymore. The book kept skipping and cutting out as well which didn't help.
  • (5/5)
    Didn't see that coming! great read
    Will look for this author again
  • (5/5)
    Hooked within the first few chapters!! Kept me guessing I did not see that coming!!
  • (3/5)
    It was OK - The Housekeeper was better so I’d recommend that one instead.
  • (1/5)
    This book is cut off. The recording is all messed up.
  • (3/5)
    Was good. Few chapters skipped in the middle
    Story line is good, suspenseful but maybe got a bit too long
  • (3/5)
    Good book, but the end of each chapter is cut off. I feel like I wasted one of my supposedly “unlimited” audiobooks.
  • (5/5)
    Really good plot twists and characters. Definitely speaks to the power of communication in a relationship. I couldn’t stop listening.
  • (5/5)
    Natalie Barelli has crafted a lovely tale of revenge in The Loyal Wife. Or has she? Tamra Mitchell's husband is cheating. Again. He really should know better, because the last time did not end well. Tamra knows this better than he does, and she has kept all his dirty secrets. But as she rushes headfirst into her plans to ruin her husband and see him punished for his wrongs, she should be watching her back. Because Tamra has an enemy. And what she thinks is real is not real at all.

    There are many secrets hiding in The Loyal Wife. Some the reader will discern easily, bupt this does not detract from the plot or negate any of the surprises. As the story unwinds, characters that seem unsympathetic shift, and ones a reader may root for show great potential for evil.

    I was deeply offended at first that lying, cheating scumbag was a Conservative politician and supposed man of faith. It makes a great scandal when such a person falls from their pedestal, but in real life we are actually rather boring and not full of secrets that would interest the public. But, as the story resolved, I found myself enjoying the struggle of someone whose image is tarnished for the wrong reasons. And I liked that the story had an unexpected happy ending.

    The Loyal Wife is an excellent foray into psychological suspense and domestic drama. If you are a fan of Natalie Barelli, this one will not disappoint.

    The plot was excellent with lots of twists and turns that kept me guessing. The only thing that bothered me had nothing to do with the story, but the narration. Why choose an obviously non-American narrator for an American narration? She did a good job, but the accent slips were a little distracting.
