Shaleen needs our book help! Ohhhhh this sounds like the mother-in-law from hell! LOL!! Wow… that poor new wife. And now I TOO, am so curious about this one!!
Hi, I am a huge fan of your blog. I make sure to check it before good reads lol.
I am looking for a book, it’s about an older man who marries a younger girl, his mother does not like her because she liked his first wife.
From what I remember the first wife was having an affair that he knew about and she died in a lake, the H thought it was his fault and kept this from his new wife.
Also, the mother in law makes the h think the H ex wife is haunting her, like she sprays her perfume around the house etc.
I do remember a saying from the book:
‘What we keep in memory, we keep forever’.
I have been looking for this book for ages, i have seen it in your recommendations years ago but can’t seem to find it now.
Please help me if you can.
Thank you. I love your work.
UPDATE!! Shaleen remembered a bit more for us:
The ex wife was a bit of an alcoholic, she had a different place on the premises where she had her affairs as well… I would class this book under romantic thriller. I don’t know if this helps but it’s been driving me crazy lol😭😂
THANK YOU so much Shaleen for your sweet message!!! It made my day, and I’m so glad you’re with us!!! 😀
AC18: Sounds similar to Verity by Colleen Hoover
Shaleen: Thanks guys… i read verity, but unfortunately it’s not that one. It’s a bit like a modern day Rebecca, probably a modern day retelling. The author is not so popular but she did a really good job with that book.

Kate: Is it ‘His wife’ by Ashley Hastings?
Shaleen: Yes!!! Finally!! Thank you so much. 🙏This is definitely the book.
Maryse: YAY!!! Another one solved, and another one for the TBR list! 😀 Thanks everyone, and thank YOU Kate!!
