In this new series by #1 bestselling mystery and suspense author Ava Strong, criminal profiler in training (and newly-engaged) Stella Fall, 26, discovers dark secrets hiding in her fiance’s past and wealthy suburb—and when a woman turns up murdered, Stella must tap her expertise in serial killers to extricate truth from lies—and not get torn apart by the demons of her own dark past.

“The plot has many twists and turns, but it is the ending, which I did not see coming at all, that totally defines this book as one of the most riveting that I have read in years.”
—Reader review for Not Like Us

Stella seems to have her whole life ahead of her: she has just graduated with a dual masters in Psychology and Criminal Justice, she is engaged to the man of her dreams after a whirlwind romance, and she is moving to the East Coast with him as she prepares for the wedding and searches for a dream job, hoping to be a criminal profiler. She is unbelievably excited for her life together with Chris—until she meets his family.

Stella, from a humble Midwestern upbringing, never felt comfortable around money, and she hates the world Chris comes from. She is in shock at the culture clash as she gets to know his elitist family and friends, all of whom look down on her. Isolated and demeaned, Stella wonders if she can live a life in such hostile surroundings. When they move into the guest house on his estate, things only get worse.

Beneath its trimmed hedgerows and gleaming storefronts, Stella realizes this wealthy town hides terrible secrets.

Stella wonders if Chris is really the man she thought he was--but before she can decide, a murder leaves her blindsided.

Stella, implicated, her future on the line, has no choice but to investigate. As her dreams devolve into hell, Stella, still struggling to overcome her own traumatic past, questions everything around her—including her own sanity.

Can she find the killer, and clear her name, before it’s too late?

A fast-paced psychological suspense thriller with unforgettable characters and heart-pounding suspense, HIS OTHER WIFE is book #1 in a riveting new series that will leave you turning pages late into the night.

    Fantastic read and full of suspense. The characters were fantastic and the story was full of suspense and emotional distress. A nice girl enters a conniving and powerful family and stops all their atrocious crimes against humanity. Well done.

  • Suspenseful Journey!

    By Lynda.Custer
    Ava Strong takes the reader on an emotional and suspenseful journey. His Other Wife is the first story of her new Stella Fall series. Stella Falls is Newly Engaged! Relocated! Unemployed! Vaughn Marshall has A Wealthy Influential Family! And now is Murdered! Stella now completely alone faces contempt and hostility while attempting to prove her innocence. The characters are extremely well developed. The Lavoisier lifestyle is believable. There are twists and turns in the plot that kept me guessing. An extremely well written story. I’m looking forward to reading Book #2. I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.
