Book Description

April 1 2011 Rapid Reads
Gwen Lake is a forty-five-year-old police officer with a desk job, an ex-husband and a future not even close to the American dream. A year after her divorce, and more out of boredom and curiosity than anything else, she agrees to a meeting with her ex's new wife. She has no idea that the encounter will lead to murder. And she has decidedly mixed emotions when her ex-husband is arrested for the crime. Instead of accepting the lead detective's advice to book a Club Med vacation and leave the investigation to the professionals, Gwen decides to work the case on her own. Her life is about to get a lot less predictable and a lot more dangerous.

Review

"Youth may identify with Gwen's struggle against sexism at work and her desire to find evidence to support what she knows in her heart is right...I would recommend The Second Wife to a literacy or GED program for adult learners, [or] an adult class of English language learners." (CM Magazine 2011-05-27)

"This short, easy to read and follow mystery would be a good choice for a literacy, ESL, or GED program for adults." (BookLinx 2012-01-30)

4.0 out of 5 stars Low-level mystery March 2 2012
By Heidi G - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Thanks to Puget Sound Council for this review copy. Brenda has tried to get over the surprise and pain when her husband, Brian, left her for Marjory, a younger woman who was a temp in his office. Imagine her surprise when Marjory asks to meet, saying that she is afraid of Brian. Later Marjory's body is found and Brian is arrested for murder. Brenda uses her position in the police department to search for clues to prove Brian's innocence. This short (107 page) mystery will keep the reader guessing to the very end. It is part of Orca Book Publishers' Rapid Reads series for older readers. The books use low-level vocabulary which is perfectly suited for teens and adults who are struggling readers or those who are learning English.
