New Book Review of The Governor’s Wife by Kate Rizor

To this day, I still don’t know who gave me this book. It has a great blue cover with a beautiful front design.

So, I opened it. I read and read and read and read this book. I think dinner was burned but that’s okay because I wasn’t going to put this book down.

I brought this book to my book club meeting, and of course we gave it a date. It was totally amazing because most of the same people said the same thing, ‘totally captivating’.

I could not agree more.

Here is the review:

wow! What a talented author. From the moment you meet the main character Andra, she is a woman of great mean spirit. Tanner Thornburg, her husband of a few years, has taken her to a restaurant to ask for a divorce from her. He chose this place because he believes that she will make a scene and somehow the restaurant will stop her, after all, there are all kinds of high society people inside the restaurant.

Although she doesn’t care. She makes a scene and terribly abuses the wait staff when she makes a small mistake. Tanner Thornburg tries to master all this negative action, but he can’t stop it and, in a moment of great drama, just lets it slip. “I want the divorce.”

For just a moment in this fast-paced book, Andra allows us a glimpse of her character. She is negotiating with him, trying to keep him. When nothing works, she leaves the restaurant.

Lately, there have been kidnapping attempts, and when Andra gets into the car, she discovers that her driver and bodyguard are not on the right track. As she uncovers the worst information she can, she realizes that she’s in trouble.

That is.

We meet Andra later, but this is Andie, she lives on the streets of Detroit, barely supports herself, and needs medical attention for her cough. For these chapters, we are made to live her life on the streets where she doesn’t even have a name and is unpleasant to say the least.

Suddenly, a chance meeting at the police station with a watchful-eyed policeman changes the whole story. Instead of going all out, she is identified as the Governor’s wife. at the beginning of the book, he was not a governor. This is ten years later and now Andie has a decision to make. Come in from the cold or stay on the street.

I don’t want to give away the ending of course, but this is a five star book all the way through. The tension, the sexual tension, the drama, the violence peppered with a social message make this book one of the best books I’ve read in a long time.

If you get the chance, pick up a copy. You won’t be disappointed.
