Publisher's Summary

After the sudden death of her ex-husband, Brian, Lauren helps Brian's much-younger widow, Jessica, arrange the funeral and settle his affairs. Although they were once adversaries in the battle for Brian's heart, Lauren agrees to pitch in for the sake of their troubled 16-year-old daughter, Emily. But Lauren gets much more than she bargained for when information comes to light about Brian's shady business deals with his old college friend Jordan Connors and the crime lord Jorge Arena, jeopardizing Brian's estate and throwing the women into the world of high-stakes illegal gambling.

With only a few days to find out where Brian hid millions of dollars in bonds and in fear for their lives, Lauren, Jessica, and Emily must set aside their differences and work together to secure their inheritance and evade Jorge Arena's murderous crew.

Widows-in-Law is a gripping tale of mothers and daughters, wives and ex-wives, broken and remade families, and unlikely partners-in-crime. Most of all, it is a moving story about the women left behind to clean up the messes men make.

Not into lesbian stories. Life is confusing as it is. I didn’t get through the first two chapters.

NOoooooo

The only thing worse than the character development is the story. The only thing worse than the story is the narrator. And the narrator is up with the worst I’ve ever heard. One or two bad readers might have been worse, but not by much. How do these books get published and produced? God save us from bad writers and missing editors.

Excellent Listen

I Enjoyed this audio from the very beginning to the surprising end. Great story. First book I’ve listened to by this author and I believe it was free.

Loved it!

It started a little slow for me but I liked the narrator and kept on. I’m so glad I did,it picked up speed and was a very good story. The three main characters have so much going on inside. The widows don’t care for each other to begin with then they learn to work together. I’ll let you find out how and why. Definitely a mystery about what the deceased Husband/Father/Ex was up to. Happy I spent my credit on this one. I recommend it.

Politics not necessary

Authors political views and remarks are irrelevant to book and take away from the story. Too bad it could be a good story line.

The narrator

I don’t know why so many people complained about the narrator. I enjoyed her. I thought this was a great story from beginning to end. This book was free on top of it. Can’t go wrong all the way around!

Don’t let the prologue scare you away

When I listened to the prologue of the story, the narrators voice was so overly dramatic that I almost didn’t listen to the rest of the book. But I thought she might settle down and she did. The rest of the book was well narrated and a good story. Enjoyable listen.

Awful narrator

Unfortunately, I cant give an opinion on the story because i could Not tolerate the narration. She speaks so fast and breathy with oddest inflection. Save your ears.
