Kaira Rouda an award-winning USA Today bestselling author whose novels of domestic suspense include The Favorite Daughter, Best Day Ever, and All the Difference.
In Rouda's newest novel that is full of suspense, The Next Wife, Kate Nelson had it all, with tremendous success both personally and professionally. She and her husband, John, built up one of central Ohio's most successful and prominent businesses together over the last 15 years called EventCo. It offers online invitations, party supplies, and processes more than $1 billion in gross ticket sales.
In an instant, Kate's perfect life came crashing down when her husband left her for his much younger, sexy assistant, Tish. Kate should have seen the signs as Tish, full of ambition and desire, worked her way into Kate's company, her teenage daughter Ashlyn's life, and her husband's bed.
It turned out to be more than just a fling, as John divorces Kate and marries his mistress. Tish feels triumphant, certain that she will surpass everything about her predecessor, but as Rouda reminds throughout, never underestimate a woman scorned.
