The Second Wife by Kishan Paul ~ Book Review

Book Description:

If you want to live, you must let go of the past...

Twenty-eight-year-old Psychologist, Alisha Dimarchi, is abducted by an obsessed client and imprisoned in his Pakistani compound for over two years. Forced to change her name and live as his second wife, her life is filled with trauma and heartbreak. Thrust into a world of violence and oppression, Ally must fight not only to keep herself alive but to protect the lives of the people she now considers family. At night, she retreats into her memories of the only man she has ever loved – a man she believes no longer loves her.

Thirty-four-year-old handsome surgeon, David Dimarchi, has spent the last two years mourning the disappearance of his wife. After a painful and isolated existence, he begins the process of healing. It is then that he is visited by a stranger, who informs him that Ally is very much alive and needs his help. In a desperate attempt to save her, David enlists the help of a mercenary. Together they find themselves in the center of more than just a rescue mission. Will he be able to reach her in time and if he does, will she still want him?

This is a quick read as I feel the author jumps right into the story and hooks the reader. With it being such a hard story line it can be hard to read sometimes without giving into feels of anger, pain and waiting to help the main character get away and get back home to her real husband. This is a story of love, courage, inner strength to do what it takes to survive to get home. I found myself sitting at the end of my chair, praying that Ally can get through one more day, one more nasty encounter to get out and get home. 
The author switches back and forth between Ally & Derek's perspective and we also go back and forth in time. I found it flowed easy and I never wondered where the story was. 

I give this book a 4 out of 5 stars and hope to read more from this author.
