The Liar's Wife
I will do anything to protect my daughter. She’s all I’ve ever wanted and all I really have, but the moment I opened that letter and accepted the inheritance, I walked us right into a dangerous trap.
I know I should have got her to tell me who she’s been talking to on the phone late at night, and where she was the day I went to pick her up from school and couldn’t find her, but she’s not spoken a word since she found that little pile of bones buried in the garden.
And now she’s missing…
A jaw-dropping, addictive and totally twisty psychological thriller that will have you sleeping with the light on! Perfect for anyone who loved The Girl on the Train, Friend Request or The Wife Between Us.

My Review: I love, love, love this author so much!!!!!! When I saw she had a new book coming out I knew I had to read it. I’ve read so many books by Samantha Hayes and I’ve loved them all. There was never a bad one. This book was no exception to that. It kept me guessing all the way through. I loved that twisty ending. This book was about Melanie who was a single mother to a twelve year old and was down on her luck. She had miraculously inherited a hotel just in the nick of time. But strange things start happening at the hotel and then her daughter goes missing. Melanie had to figure out what’s going on and fast to save her daughter. What secrets did this hotel hold? Who gave her this hotel as she had no family? Who had a grudge against her and her daughter? You find this out and so much more. So I want to start out by saying how much I loved this book. I do want to warn readers I found it a bit slow paced in the very beginning. I know most books are slow to start as you are getting to know the characters but this was extremely slow but it definitely picks up by the middle of the book so don’t give up. It’s definitely worth it in the end. I loved all the characters and they worked well together. I found them all to be hiding secrets and when the truth finally came out there was an explosion of emotions. I liked the plot as well. Melanie was abandoned as a baby and didn’t know who would leave her such an extravagant gift like a hotel. It was fun watching her play detective to try and figure out what secrets were lurking behind the shadows. That ending was awesome. There were so many twists and turns. I didn’t know which direction I was heading in. It was like a winding road that was never ending. As you can see I loved this book for so many reasons. Between the plot, characters and all the twists in this book it made it an easy and fast read. I would definitely recommend it and happily give it 5 Hearts❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
“Single Mother” was an unputdownable, read late into the night kind of book! I very much enjoyed the short, suspenseful chapters, continually telling myself, “...just one more chapter!” It's hard to believe that this was my first read by Samantha Hayes! The story itself follows single mother Mel and her twelve-year-old daughter Kate. They are down on their luck and trying to escape Mel’s abusive ex when an unexpected inheritance seemingly solves all of their problems. Mel endeavors to not only rebuild a stable environment for Kate but also to restore the old, inherited, and beaten down hotel. When Kate goes missing one night after a disturbing discovery on the grounds, Mel fears the worst. Hayes has penned quite the thrilling tale with “Single Mother,” skillfully snatching up her readers and sending them racing down a twisted, winding path. While I did figure out a few of the reveals beforehand, I was altogether satisfied with how the story came together. Sarah’s character may have just been my favorite; at first, she was eerily unsettling, creeping around the hotel, but as her story came to fruition, I felt the heartbreak, fury, and finally the satisfaction in her ultimate breakthrough and resolve. I'd recommend this book to the many thriller fans out there; you won't want to miss this one! On another note, I'd like to mention that I enjoyed the author's letter at the end; it’s always interesting to find out the inspiration behind the written word. Many thanks to NetGalley, the author Samantha Hayes, and the publishers at Bookouture for my advanced copy of this ebook. I have honestly and voluntarily reviewed this title.
