Thanks for the feedback! One of the most interesting things about the book is it's based on a true scandal.

Great review. This tailor must have been a real lady's love, no wonder they didn't think twice when murdering their husbands.

Can't wait to read the book.

After going through your review, I feel that the book has a lot to offer and the author has managed to create the thriller and suspense as required for the genre to become successful. Your review has given useful insight, which is appreciated.

This an amazing book at the glance of the title I thought it was all about drama of women and how wicked they had being to their husbands but on reading it the scenes of murder of their husband's for insurance money made me glued to it more and read it more.
The author did a great job congrats!!
Despite the so many characters in the book the author without so much problem interwoven them and make the story one.
However my love for cases and murder cases made me finish the book to see the verdict's.

I keep watching this pop-up on the new post feed and I finally decided to see why this one has gotten so many comments. Now, I see why. It does sound like quite the interesting tale made all the more intriguing as it is based on a true story. You are right about the title. I think I was imaging more of a like a Stepford Wives type story! Great review! Now I will have to look into this one.
