Wife After Wife

~ I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~

Synopsis (from Amazon):  Divorced. Murdered. Died. Divorced. Departed. Survived.

A modern take on the life and marriages of Henry VIII, if he were a 21st century womanizing media mogul rather than the king of England.

Master of the universe Harry Rose is head of the Rose Corporation, number eighteen on the Forbes rich list, and recently married to wife number six. But in 2018, his perfect world is about to come crashing to the ground. His business is in the spotlight--and not in a good way--and his love life is under scrutiny. Because behind a glittering curtain of lavish parties, gorgeous homes, and a media empire is a tale worthy of any tabloid. 

And Harry has a lot to account for.

One (or more) Sentence Summary: Crazy good. Harry is for sure a lady's man and puts women under his spell.  Rich, powerful, sexy, Harry is wanted by many women.  The women that he marry's are all different as well and maybe not what most would expect.  I really enjoyed all the characters in the book, including Harry's family and friends.  I was hooked by page 2 and couldn't get through it fast enough.  In fact, while driving I had to listen to the text-to-speak feature on my kindle.   If you ever used that feature - it isn't the best (by any means) voice, but I couldn't wait to finish Wife After Wife.  

The crazy ending made it all worth while and I would love to see sequel, maybe on one of Harry's siblings or Charles' story?  Of course we get glimpses of their lives in Wife After Wife, but I think there are still some stories about the other characters that would make some great books. Wife After Wife would make a great movie too! 

Would I Read Other Books by the Author:  Wife After Wife is Olivia Hayfield's first adult novel and I sure hope she writes more because I loved it.

Olivia Hayfield is the pseudonym of British author Sue Copsey. Sue is usually in her office editing other people's books, while Olivia is often in her writing hut at the bottom of the garden. After several years in London Zoo's press office, Sue became an editor at Dorling Kindersley. She later moved to New Zealand, where she continues to work in publishing. Sue has written several children's books, including The Ghosts of Tarawera, which was a Storylines Children's Literature Trust Notable Book. Wife After Wife is her first adult novel. She is married with two children.
