The Professors’ Wives Club is about four women; Mary, Sofia, Hannah and Ashleigh. Its done it alternating perspectives. Each chapter is by each of the characters.

Jack is on a campaign to demolish the faculty garden and turn it into a parking lot. The women soon discover that there is a hidden agenda to Jack’s plan and it has something to do with Edgar Allan Poe’s manuscript. The women are on a mission to find out what the reason is and will stop and nothing to uncover and expose Jack for what he really is.

One Sunday I was at the library with Michael taking him to an activity that the library was hosting and I saw this book on the new release shelf. I was excited to read it because I had read a few good reviews on the book and it was on my to buy list for awhile.

I managed to read this book in two sittings and really enjoyed it. Its a great book about friendship. There was enough action that kept me interested in the book and I had a hard time to put it down. The characters were all believable. The descriptions made you feel like you were there.

This is the first book by Joanne Rendell. I am really excited to read her next book which is set to be released this year.
