The Dead Wife by Sue Fortin - Blog Tour Review

Police have ruled out suspicious circumstances in the investigation into the death of Elizabeth Sinclair, wife of charismatic entrepreneur Harry Sinclair, found drowned in the lake of the family’s holiday park. 
It’s been two years since the Sinclair case closed but when reporter Steph Durham receives a tipoff that could give her the scoop of the year, she’s drawn deeper and deeper into the secretive Sinclair family.
Elizabeth’s death wasn’t a tragic accident. And the truth will come at a deadly price…

My Review
This was an absolutely gripping read especially the final few chapters! I do love a good mystery and this book had bucket loads of that. This is my first time reading a book by Sue Fortin but it certainly won't be my last, I like books with great characters and Sue has definitely nailed that. From the grieving husband to the journalist investigating to the annoying family members I loved/hated them all for various reasons.
The plot of this book is brilliant and I particularly enjoyed the diary entries from Elizabeth. These lead up to the time of her death and explain some of the situations that lead to her death. Even with these helpful hints I still struggled to decide on a solid suspect. This meant that the ending was even better as I had got my guess completely wrong.
Steph is contacted by Elizabeth's heartbroken mother to investigate what happened to her daughter. She has very serious doubts that her daughters death was an accident. Returning to her hometown turns out to be a real eye opener for Steph and she learns a lot of new information that she wasn't aware of.
The Dead Wife is a gripping and mystery packed novel and one I would highly recommend. Sue Fortin is excellent at building up to a cracking ending.
