This is the second novel that I have read by Susan Crawford. It is called The Other Widow, and it is another fascinating story of love, murder, and betrayal. She writes about characters that are authentic . The characters that she creates could be our next-door, neighbors, our friends, or our co-workers. The choices they make lead to mistakes which is what we all do in real life. Especially, when it is driven by emotions.
Joe Lindsey is having an affair with his co-worker who is also married….Dorrie. It is during one of their trysts that Joe is killed. They are driving together during a snow storm when Joe loses control and crashes into a tree, but not before telling Dorrie that she is in danger. He is killed, and Dorrie escapes unharmed. She flees the accident in fear that her affair will be discovered.
However, when Maggie Brennan, ex-cop, begins to process the life insurance claim….it appears that this may not have been an accident. Dorrie is danger….who knew about Joe and Dorrie….and what are they after?
