The English Wife

Lauren Willig

Annabelle and Bayard Van Duyvil live a charmed life in New York, until the night of their Twelfth Night Ball, when Bayard is found dead with a knife in his chest. With Annabelle missing, Bayard's sister, Janie, forms an unlikely alliance with a reporter to uncover the truth. The more she learns about her brother and his wife, the more everything she thought she knew about them starts to unravel. Who were her brother and his wife, really? And why did her brother die with the name George on his lips? Set during the Gilded Age, Willig's latest (after The Lure of the Moonflower, 2015) is a page-turning treat.
