After the sudden death of her ex-husband, Brian, Lauren helps Brian’s much-younger widow, Jessica, arrange the funeral and settle his affairs. Although they were once adversaries in the battle for Brian’s heart, Lauren agrees to pitch in for the sake of their troubled sixteen-year-old daughter, Emily. But Lauren gets much more than she bargained for when information comes to light about Brian’s shady business deals with his old college friend Jordan Connors and the crime lord Jorge Arena, jeopardizing Brian’s estate and throwing the women into the world of high-stakes illegal gambling. With only a few days to find out where Brian hid millions of dollars in bonds and in fear for their lives, Lauren, Jessica, and Emily must set aside their differences and work together to secure their inheritance and evade Jorge Arena’s murderous crew. Widows-in-Law is a gripping tale of mothers and daughters, wives and ex-wives, broken and remade families, and unlikely partners-in-crime. Most of all, it is a moving story about the women left behind to clean up the messes men make.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Miller has a special ability to craft descriptive fast-paced prose, creating an exciting crime novel that is also an astute commentary on the state of family and marriage today.” Charles Belfoure, New York Times bestselling author of The Paris Architect
“An unlikely partnership between the ex-wife and the new wife of a lawyer evolves after his mysterious death in this action-packed, suspenseful novel filled with rich characters and unpredictable turns. You will stay up late to finish it.” Lorena Hughes, author of The Sisters of Alameda Street
“There are more twists and turns than a switchback road in Miller’s lean, mean, taut thriller that will leave you seat teetering and page flipping. It’s also a rich novel finely woven like a Persian rug with characters—especially the three women at the heart of the story—as real as the closest women in your own life. The recovery set will find much to identify with in the protagonist Lauren, whose years of sobriety help her navigate the high-stakes, high-risk, high-heart-palpitating landmine she’s stepped into. Can’t wait for the movie!” Jamie Brickhouse, author of Dangerous When Wet: A Memoir of Booze, Sex, and My Mother
“Michele Miller has had more lives than a cat, and they’ve made her a writer of passion and substance.” Lawrence Block, New York Times bestselling author, praise for the author
