"An uneasy alliance forms as two widows delve into their husbands' deadly and dangerous secrets--as they try to protect their own ... Together, these two widows will face a powerful foe determined to write a false narrative about the murders. In doing so, neither Flora nor Kirsten will remain the women the world thought they were"--

An Ambush Of Widows by Jeff Abbott is slightly outside of my comfort zone, but then I was also convinced to check this one out from attending a virtual event held by Forever and Grand Central Publishing. As far as thrillers which are not always my thing go, this was really good. I was immediately hooked. However, I did eventually lose some steam while reading and by the end was not quite as hooked.

Jeff Abbott’s An Ambush Of Widows opens with Kirsten North enjoying some time alone while her husband, Henry, is on a business trip. That is, until she gets a phone call from an unknown number saying that her husband has been murdered. So, Kirsten travels from New Orleans to Austin where her husband was murdered. Turns out he was in the company of a business man named Adam Zhang. Kirsten has no idea what the connection to Adam is as she has never met him before. Joining forces with Adam’s widow, Flora, the two work together to find out what exactly happened to their husbands. The clock is ticking though as the widows might just be the next target.

The action is so well done in this book. I felt like the way the mystery unravels was so well paced. The main characters were both likable and interesting. I related to Flora in that she was a mother to a little one. Actually, I was really stressed out with regards to the baby and hoping he wasn’t in danger (to those who also worry about that — the baby is fine and comes out of the book okay). Also, I thought that Kirsten’s history was very well done and enjoyed the different pieces we got and how they all added up.

Unfortunately, I did lose some steam. I think it was due to an outside factor. You see, while I was reading this book we left our dog loose when we went to family dinner. We came home and it turns out my dog decided to actually eat this book. So, I lost some steam immediately. I am betting that maybe if I wasn’t so pissed off, I likely would not have lost my mojo while reading. For a genre that isn’t completely in my wheelhouse, I sure did enjoy my time trying something new. I actually do think I am apt to pick up another book by Abbott in the future.
