Such a Good Wife by Seraphina Nova Glass

Such a Good Wife is Seraphina Nova Glass's newest novel out on August 10th in the US. This is her second novel, following the release of Someone's Listening in July 2020. I think the author has a beautiful name, which caught my eye along with the cover.

This novel is about Melanie and Collin Hale. They have a great marriage with two children, one who requires extra attention. Melanie is a stay at home mom to care for her son. When an opportunity to join a local writer's group comes up, Collin encourages Melanie (she wanted to write a book earlier in her life). In the bookstore where the writing group is held Melanie meets Luke, local romance writer and a relationship begins. Then Luke is found dead and Melanie is desperate to keep her affair a secret from her husband and not be accused of Luke's murder.


Melanie is very relatable. She does not have a lot of friends, possibly because she's a stay at home mom, so when Collin encourages her to join the writing group, she is hesitant. When she meet Luke, she knows she is in trouble but can't help herself. The first half of the book sets up everything for the twisting ending. 

I loved the pace of this book. There is a lot going on in the book besides Melanie and Luke and it all fits together very well. In the end everyone gets what they deserved.
