Rural Wisconsin, 1909. In the bitter cold, Ralph Truitt, a successful businessman, stands alone on a train platform waiting for the woman who answered his newspaper advertisement for "a reliable wife." But when Catherine Land steps off the train from Chicago, she's not the "simple, honest woman" that Ralph is expecting. She is both complex and devious, haunted by a terrible past and motivated by greed. Her plan is simple: she will win this man's devotion, and then, ever so slowly, she will poison him and leave Wisconsin a wealthy widow. What she has not counted on, though, is that Truitt — a passionate man with his own dark secrets —has plans of his own for his new wife. Isolated on a remote estate and imprisoned by relentless snow, the story of Ralph and Catherine unfolds in unimaginable ways.

With echoes of Wuthering Heights and Rebecca, Robert Goolrick's intoxicating debut novel delivers a classic tale of suspenseful seduction, set in a world that seems to have gone temporarily off its axis.

  • A Reliable Wife

    When I read this book was on the best seller list I thought I would give it a try. It read like a Harliquin Romance which is not what I enjoy reading. I didn't recommend it to my friends and donated it to a traveling library. I know there are lots of people that enjoy this genre even though I don't.

  • Could't put it down.

    This book was a total page turner from beginning to the end. The writer did a good job of drawing you into the story and keeping you there just to find out what happens next.

  • Surface good but...

    The plot is a great idea but poorly put together. There are pages and pages of sex that is really boring and makes you want to, and I did, long passages. Too bad this detracted from any real character development.

    • Would you recommend this to a friend? No
  • keeps your interest to the very end

    I liked the book very much. The author did a great job in describing the characters and the cities they visited. I felt like I was there too. Kept my interest from start to finish. It is always a good book when you do not want it to end like this one.
