Amelia...Review

About the book:
From loss breeds new opportunity. 

Amelia Monroe had felt the sharp pain from the loss of a soldier before—Adam Monroe’s death didn’t have that same effect. Sam Jackson had one job—deliver Adam Monroe’s revised will. Even he couldn’t have anticipated that he’d be entangled in the web of lies his client had woven. 

Doing what is right had been inbred in Amelia. She’d planned to say her goodbyes and start fresh. Staying in Adam’s small town with his other lies, that wasn’t part of her plan.

When her husband dies in Afghanistan, what Amelia Monroe doesn't expect to discover is that Adam had three wives. The Three Mrs. Monroes all converge at Adam's funeral and after a near disastrous meeting, an unlikely alliance is formed.

Amelia is wife number two and for much of her marriage Adam was deployed and they were apart. When she discovers his bigamy, any vestige of love she'd felt was gone and it's very easy for her to move forward.

As Adam's attorney, Sam has one job and it's to present the will to his widows. He and Amelia have an immediate connection and while staying in a small Oklahoma town isn't part of her plan, Amelia finds herself drawn there. As she gets to know Adam's other wives and learns that her marriage was the only legal one, she can't just leave. She feels an obligation to Penelope who is pregnant and Vivian who has Adam's two daughters. The three wives form an unlikely partnership as they try and move on and deal with the aftermath their husband left behind.

The premise for The Three Mrs. Monroes series is an interesting one: what happens when three wives of the same man all meet at his funeral. The book is a quick read and easily read in one or two sittings. I liked Amelia although she was a little rough around the edges and I'm glad that Penelope and Vivian will each have their own book so we can get to know them easier.

While not graphic, there is non-marital intimacy and the characters have no moral qualms about it.

  1. Three wives and the mystery surrounding it alone has to make this an interesting read. Thanks for the review.
