Waiting on Wednesday – Her Sweet Revenge by Sarah Bonner

Welcome to my weekly segment, Waiting on Wednesday, where I look at upcoming books that I am planning to order and review in the next few months and which I think I will really enjoy.  I run this segment in conjunction with the Can’t-Wait Wednesday meme that is currently running at Wishful Endings.  Stay tuned to see reviews of these books when I get a copy of them.  For this week’s Waiting on Wednesday, I look at an intriguing upcoming thriller from a talented author, with Her Sweet Revenge by Sarah Bonner.

I have had the great pleasure of reading several outstanding debut novels this year, but one of the absolute best was Her Perfect Twin by impressive new author Sarah Bonner.  Her Perfect Twin was a remarkable and highly addictive thriller that told the tale of a haunted woman who kills her identical twin sister after discovering that she was sleeping with her husband.  Deciding to take on her twin’s identity to cover up her death, the protagonist finds new confidence in inhabiting her outgoing sister’s life, especially as it gets her away from her abusive husband.  However, her plans come unravelled when the COVID-19 pandemic hits and she is forced into lockdown with her husband, who knows far more about her life than she ever realised.  Her Perfect Twin was a deeply impressive read, and I got really stuck into its elaborate and deeply compelling narrative.  Loaded with a ton of clever twists, as well as some outstanding characters, Her Perfect Twin was an exceptional book, and I loved it so much I had to give it a full five-star rating.

Naturally, after such an incredible debut novel, I am pretty curious to see how Bonner was going to follow it up, and it looks like I will get my chance rather soon.  That is because Bonner’s second book, Her Sweet Revenge, is coming out in a few months’ time.  Her Sweet Revenge, which is set for release in April 2023, will centre around two woman who receive an anonymous note.  However, it apparently has very different meanings to both of them, and soon they are involved in a dangerous personal conspiracy, with one trying to hide their darkest secret, while the other seeks revenge.  I am already very intrigued by this cool synopsis and I can’t wait to see what sort of elaborate thriller narrative Bonner comes up with here.  Based on the impressive story she wrote for Her Perfect Twin, I am expecting another twisty and intricate narrative that will dive into the heart of the two main characters and explore their convoluted lives.  I have extremely high hopes for Her Sweet Revenge, and I look forward to seeing how Bonner’s second novel turns out.

Plot Synopsis:

Secrets and lies ruin lives

Two women receive the same anonymous note.
For one it’s a threat.
For the other it’s an invitation for revenge.

Helena is beautiful, successful, and living in married bliss in Exeter. But she’s hiding a secret that could tear her perfect life apart. When the notes begin to arrive, she realises someone else must know. But what might her husband and his overbearing family do if they find out the truth?

Thea is reeling from her best friend Helena’s death. But when she starts digging into the circumstances, she receives a threatening note warning her to stop. She knows her friend’s death wasn’t an accident. This was murder. And she is determined to get revenge. And everyone knows, it’s almost always the husband . . .
