Book Review: The Innocent Wife by Amy Lloyd

Winner of The Daily Mail Best Seller Competition, The Innocent Wife by Amy Lloyd was published by Cornerstone Digital on 6th October 2017.  This psychological suspense/crime fiction novel is based upon obsession, lies and manipulation.

Two decades ago Dennis Danson was incarcerated for the brutal murder of a young girl, Holly Michaels,  in Red River County, Florida.  A true crime documentary coupled with a frenzy of online support/campaign to free a wrongly evicted man is successful.   Across the Atlantic in the UK, Samantha is following Dennis's story.  Believing his innocence she enters into correspondence with him, She leaves her life in the UK in order to move to the US to be part of his campaign and marries him.   Once he is freed, however, little snippets emerge that suggest to Sam that he is not as innocent as he may profess.

Written from Sam's perspective, this novel gives an insight in to why someone gives up their life to support someone on death row.  Sam had been mistreated and cheated upon by previous partners.  Lonely, she was charmed/ sucked in by Dennis's letters.  This is a book I couldn't put down and it has a twist at the end!

received this book via Netgalley and Cornerstone Digital in exchange for a honest review,  #Netgalley #theinnocentwife
