In the early hours of an April morning, Maya stumbles into the path of an oncoming bus.

A tragic accident? Or suicide?

Her grief-stricken husband, Adrian, is determined to find out.

Maya had a job she enjoyed, she had friends. They’d been in love.

She even got on with his two previous wives and their children. In fact, they’d all been one happy family.

But before long Adrian starts to identify the dark cracks in his perfect life.

Because everyone has secrets.

And secrets have consequences.

Some of which can be devastating.

A consistent Sunday Times best seller,, Lisa Jewell is the queen of emotional, thought-provoking, character-driven woman’s fiction. If you haven’t read Lisa Jewell, then look no further as the best place to start.

Get to know Lisa by joining the official face book page at or by following her on Twitter @lisajewelluk.

Would you go on holiday with your ex-husband or your ex-wife? and the children?


Adrian Wolfe a love addict. He has been married three times with five children,and with three very different homes and businesses. His first wife Susie lives in Hove, His second wife Caroline lives in Islington.



Adrian and his third wife Maya with her cat live in his flat. They all seemed to be one big happy family and always holiday together every year. 



 With so many in Adrian’s life, birthdays had to be colour-coded so Adrian could remember his children’s birthdays, his ex-wife’s birthdays and his ex-mother-in-laws birthdays.
 One fatal evening while Maya is out drinking she gets well out of it, suffering from blurred vision. While drunk it appears that Maya lurched into a path of a bus and was killed. This wasn’t the normal level of drinking for Maya as she wasn’t that kind of drinker and appeared not to be not under stress. 
Maya had a job that she enjoyed with lots of friends. She got on very well with Adrian’s two previous wives and their children.
The police think that Maya his third wife must of found it difficult being in the middle of such a complicated situation. Was this a tragic accident? or suicide?. Grief-stricken Adrian is determined to find out. 
To add to further more twist Adrian puts an advert for a good owner who would like a cat. A woman Jane appears to be interested in having the cat, but after meeting Jane, Adrian gets the feeling she is stalking his family. 
In The Third Wife, everyone has secrets and secrets have consequences, some of which can be devasting. Lisa Jewell is one of my most favourite authors.
I have read all of Lisa Jewell books and enjoyed them all. Although for me I enjoyed The Third Wife the best.
