    Set in the 1590’s London the story is told from the very different view points of 2 women, Mary and Cat, once like sisters but now accomplices to the murder of Cats husband and worlds apart until fate brings them back together changing their lives yet agin.There is a lot of attention to detail in the descriptions of the streets of London and the parlours of the upper class, there is one part that especially stands out for me for the authenticity and that was the preparations that the household [...]

    I am reviewing this book for Pamela Hartshorne, Pan Mamillan and NetGalley who gave me a copy of their book for an honest review. I like historical thrillers so this was a plus straight away. This one is set in Elizabethan London and all about Mary, who we find married to a wealthy merchant. She seems to have everything in life but a curse has followed her and blights her life. At one point it seems she has left it behind but then figures from her past turn up and her life is once more in tumoil [...]

    A great historical readIn fact this novel is going to linger for me. It’s a new direction for the author as there's no time slip but a very evocative story set in the past. A direction I hope she repeats!Two brilliantly strong lead characters and what it meant at the time if you were trying to escape a childhood curseYup really enjoyed this one. Full review later!

    I really enjoyed "The Cursed Wife". The writing is great, the plot is really intriguing and the characters are well developed. I really enjoyed reading from Mary's point of view because she is an interesting character eaten up by guilt but always trying to make up for what she perceives as her sins. Cat's point of view was equally interesting but for very different reasons. The ending was also done really well and, at least to me, was really unexpected.
