The First Wife by Diana Diamond

Jane Warren swore she'd never marry again even though plenty of perfectly respectable men would consider themselves lucky to end up with someone like her. Then again, the last perfectly respectable man to end up with her-her ex-husband-ended their marriage, not to mention Jane's belief in happy endings...

But she just can't muster the cynicism to resist William Andrews-a dashing, debonaire widower with two children of his own. Soon, Jane's doing what she swore she'd never do: Marching up the aisle, promising to have, hold, serve, and protect, 'til death do them part. But once married, Jane discovers that Andrew seems to be obsessed with his dead wife...

As Jane struggles to understand the nature of the powerful hold Andrews's first wife still exerts over the husband and children she left behind, she realizes that her life may depend on the answer. For someone would clearly like to see her follow the first Mrs. Andrews to the grave...

After 4 hours, they're madly in love, the billionaire and the small press journalist. And why did our heroine never change her locks? Instead she puts up with annoying impromtu visits from her ex. Although this is a short novel, it takes forever to get though it.

I did finish this book even though some of it was unbelievable.

Once I started this book I couldn't put it down. It was FULL of suspense and romance. For anyone who loves Sandra Brown, it's hard to compare, but this book will hold your attention and imagination from cover to cover.

The First Wife ... I have read all her books - wish she would come out with some other books. I normally rate her books as Very Good or Excellent - but this one was a little hard to believe the plot and that Jane was so naïve! Still a good writer - but not his/her best! Just wonder why no other books have come out under Diana Diamond's name for years.

Eight years ago, an intruder burst into the home of William Andrews; the thug killed his wife Kay and almost William too. The perpetrator was never caught and Bill spent the next few years building up his empire to the point where he became one of the most powerful men in the world. He never was serious about any woman until he read the articles about him written by Jane Warren who painted him in unflattering light......................................... Bill buys the newspaper that employs Jane and arranges for her to interview her new boss. Jane thought he would fire her but after a rough start there relationship turns romantic and he asks her to marry him. After she says yes the ¿accidents¿ start. Jane believes someone is trying to kill her. She thinks it has to do with Kay¿s death and the woman in Paris who William remits a monthly sum. William doesn¿t confide in his fiancée, but Jane digs and the deeper she gets, the more desperate the perpetrator is to get her out of Bill¿s life permanently............................. Diana Diamond writes a juicy romantic suspense novel that demonstrates the power that the rich and powerful yield. The heroine thinks her own husband is a suspect in the attempts on her life but there are plenty of other people who would like her dead because she is a threat to them. All Jane¿s troubles go back to THE FIRST WIFE and she intends to uncover the secrets her husband is hiding or die trying (which she almost does). This is a must read for fans who like action, romance and intrigue in the tradition of Jackie Collins......................... Harriet Klausner
