Description

A twisted Cinderella story from New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Ann Aguirre



Marlena Altizer Durst lives in her husband's shadow. He controls her every move--what she wears, the food she eats, and the friends she's allowed to make. If she disobeys, there are...consequences. And he has all the power.



To outsiders, it seems that she leads a fairy-tale life. But nobody ever wonders if Cinderella was happy after she married the prince. Marlena has traded freedom and safety for luxurious imprisonment, and most days, that seems like a bad bargain. Death may be the only exit she's allowed. Just like his first wife. And his second. Unless she flips the script.



Praise:



The Third Mrs. Durst is a slow, dark burn that leads to a fantastic explosion of an ending.--Victoria Helen Stone, bestselling author of Jane Doe

Review quote

Aguirre inserts twists and turns that keep the pages turning ... All of Aguirre's positive characters are beautiful, strong, and resilient.--New York Journal of Books



The ultimate duel: a humming, intelligent woman versus a violent husband who believes that he is the strongest one in the relationship. This is one you must 'see' with your own eyes. It's an experience you won't forget.--Suspense Magazine



The plot steadily builds suspense chapter by chapter, making for a gripping thriller anchored by a protagonist readers can really root for.--Mystery Scene



The Third Mrs. Durst is a slow, dark burn that leads to a fantastic explosion of an ending.--Victoria Helen Stone, bestselling author of Jane Doe



A quickly spun and lively thriller after the opening chapters, and has the feel of a Darkly Dreaming Dexter in a slinky dress.--Kingdom Books
