Book Review: The Senator’s Wife by Liv Constantine
By Jeff AyersJune 29, 2023
A tragedy brings together a widow and a senator in Liv Constantine’s latest thriller. The two were friends before the incident that killed Senator Whit Montgomery’s wife and the husband of Sloane Chase. Now married, Sloane battles the ongoing effects of lupus, and Whit deals with the world of D.C. politics. They hire an aide to assist Sloane at home, and Athena proves right away to be a goddess. Then Sloane starts getting worse, and as she struggles past her illness, she begins to see Athena in a different light. Whit has aspirations beyond the Senate, and Athena seems more than willing to help him in any way she can. Is Sloane being sidelined, and if so, can she stop Athena from replacing her in Whit’s life? The writing duo of Lynne and Val Constantine have crafted a compelling psychological puzzle with a lead character that readers will root for. The Senator’s Wife would make a nifty film, and fans of The Last Mrs. Parrish and others by this terrific writing team will get swept away.
