The Pocket Wife By Susan Crawford Book Review

The Pocket Wife By Susan Crawford Book Review

A few had been moaning this book is similar to Girl on a Train, how is this similar? Because of a woman got a drunk with her neighbor and the next thing she knew, the neighbor wounds up dead? So each book that has a story line with alcoholism, drunken night, and blackouts is going too compared to Girl on a Train? Every book is similar to another book, we can say that The Handmaids tale is similar to 1984. Fifty Shades of Grey is similar to the story in Bad Behavior-The Secretary, or Story of O. Well, Fifty Shades copied all great erotic stories anyway. Fanfic of Twilight that says a lot. Give a book to some people and watch them tear it apart. In book my character is a drunk so is she going to be compared to Racheal Watson? When she’s not even the same or similar? Get back to me on this.

What attract me to this book is its stunning cover. The Pocket Wife follow the story of Dana Catrell wakes from a drunken stupor in time to see an ambulance pull into her neighbor’s house a few doors down. Celia Steinhauser has been murdered. But Dana who struggles with bipolar disorder was at her house only a few hours ago. Celia wanted to show her a photo – a photo of Dana’s husband with another woman – and Dana has blank spots about what happened to the rest of the afternoon. Why the husbands are always cheating dirt bags in this situation?
