Once Upon a Crime -- August 1, 2023

The Once Upon a Crime book club met together to discuss Pretty Little Wife by Darby Kane. All members commented about how fast the book rolled along to keep our attention. With six members present, the book received 3.5 out of 5 stars.

Girls are coming up missing and then found dead. A wife finds her husband's "secret phone" with calls and graphic videos with him and these girls. Horrified by her findings, she plots to kill him. Once the deed is done, she parks his car at the school with him in it. His principal comes that morning asking where he is. She is dumbfounded, now wondering if he is dead after all, especially when she starts getting notes about her activity. 

The discussion group was a little surprised at all the twists and turns this book had. Several characters were introduced and had motive.
