The Hidden Wife – Amanda Reynolds

I am delighted to be part of the #blogtour for Amanda Reynold’s new psychological thriller THE HIDDEN WIFE and my thanks to Anne Cater for the invitation and copy of the book for an honest and impartial review.


She was young and beautiful, married to a famous author. They were celebrating their anniversary at their stunning country estate. So why did Julia Blake walk out of her perfect life, apparently leaving no trace?

Seren, a junior reporter for the local paper, can’t believe her luck when she lands an exclusive with Julia’s husband, Max. But as Seren spends more time at the couple’s remote mansion, probing ever deeper into the case, dark questions await.

What was Julia really like, behind closed doors? Was her marriage to this brooding, secretive man as perfect as it seemed? And did she really mean to disappear that night – or was she murdered?

My Review: I love a good psychological thriller and THE HIDDEN WIFE certainly ticked all my boxes!  A missing wife, a rich older husband, a young reporter, a dedicated police team and several red herrings, twist and turns along the way.

This is my first book by Amanda Reynolds, but it certainly won’t be my last – I was absolutely gripped by all the characters stories, in particular Seren, the young journalist who has been personally chosen by the elusive Max Blake to write an exclusive story about his wife’s disappearance 9 months after the event.

With her own personal demons chasing her Seren has no option but to face her painful past whilst investigating Julie Blake’s disappearance.  Recommended for readers of twisty thrillers THE HIDDEN WIFE is a thoroughly addictive page-turner.
