Pretty Little Wife
Darby Kane thrills with this twisty domestic suspense novel that asks one central question: shouldn't a dead husband stay dead?
Lila Ridgefield lives in an idyllic college town, but not everything is what it seems. Lila isn't what she seems.
A student vanished months ago. Now, Lila's husband, Aaron, is also missing. At first these cases are treated as horrible coincidences until it's discovered the student is really the third of three unexplained disappearances over the last few years. The police are desperate to find the connection, if there even is one. Little do they know they might be stumbling over only part of the truth....
With the small town in an uproar, everyone is worried about the whereabouts of their beloved high school teacher. Everyone except Lila, his wife. She's definitely confused about her missing husband but only because she was the last person to see his body, and now it's gone.

Intriguing...Kane is off to a promising start.--Publishers Weekly
"I devoured it in two days. This is the type of thriller I love the most: A taut domestic suspense with just a shade of police procedural woven in."--Julie Clark, New York Times bestselling author
"Pretty Little Wife explores the consequences of unacknowledged trauma and dares to ask whether murder is ever justified. It's an exciting departure for HelenKay Dimon, the bestselling romance author for whom Darby Kane is a pseudonym. There's certainly no guarantee of a happily ever after, though there is hope for hard-won redemption."--BookPage
"Pretty Little Wife by Darby Kane delights in subverting the expectations of readers"--Popsugar
"If you're looking for one of the best and tightly-plotted thrillers you'll read this year, let me introduce you to Pretty Little Wife."--Mystery and Suspense Magazine
