Killers all.
These are the stories of those they killed.

Their wives.

‘The Night My Husband Killed Me’ is the story of four women who were murdered by their husbands.

All of the women were beautiful, and were either famous at the time of their deaths, or became famous for being the victims of the charismatic, disturbed, men who ended their lives.

Being dead doesn’t end a woman’s feelings, or her anger. There is Natalie, the international and revered movie star who died the death she had most feared all of her life. There is the beautiful, life-loving Nicole, who might just have gone back to the stunning athlete she loved, if only he hadn’t killed her first. Then there is Sunny, heiress to one of America’s greatest fortunes, sent into an irreversible coma for paying too much for all the wrong things. And finally, there is Colette, the high school sweetheart who married the golden boy and endured a marriage of increasing lies and disappointment, culminating in her death and that of her little girls shortly after Valentine’s Day.

These four amazing women’s lives were cut short, but each has a story to tell … and now they have.

My View: Stories taken from real life and molded into fiction, sounds interesting, huh? They are.

What I liked

I was drawn in by the very first story. The writing style of the author was simple yet had this magical, mesmerizing pull to it. The story is very beautifully written. The author has done a good job of trying to reason out what might have gone wrong in these true crime stories. Even though the stories have a same theme, they are different in their own manner.

What I could have done without

A book of short stories at times have a similar theme to bind them all together. But I think the stories had too many common factors and similarities that they seemed a bit repetitive after a while. And by the last story, I was skimming it for the most part. I would still say that not everything in the stories is the same but they have a lot in common. I like diversity and variety in what I read, so after the second story, it was a bit monotonous for me.

Overall, a very well written book that makes you think and is a bit on the scary end having to know about all those murders.

3/5 stars – I liked it. download (8)
