The Wrong Woman by J. P. Pomare. (2022).

**4.5 out of 5 stars**

Reid left his small town home a decade ago, promising his former Chief of Police boss he’d never return. Now he is a PI and an insurance firm has offered him good money to look into a suspicious car crash; back in his home town with his complicated family history, a scarring relationship breakdown and a career-ending incident. As his investigation unfolds, nothing is as it seems: rumours are about the well-liked young woman who crashed the car and killed her professor husband, and their possible connection to a local missing student…

This was a really enjoyable mystery thriller story. The storyline was engaging and made for almost addictive reading as Reid tries to work out the ins and outs of this seemingly straightforward case that turns out to be quite complicated. Making his work even more complex is that Reid has his own complicated history in the area with the police force basically hating him. The book alternates between Reid’s perspective and Eshana, the driver of the car. Eshana’s chapters cover the history of her relationship with her husband who is now dead and the events leading to the crash. A clever and well-written storyline, I thoroughly enjoyed.
Overall: I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good mystery novel which you pick up and the hours just disappear while you are reading.
