about

in the predominantly mormon city of Draper, Utah, some seemingly perfect families have deadly secrets.
 
Linda Wallheim is a devout Mormon, mother of five boys and wife of a bishop. But Linda’s daily routine of church-going, Relief Society meetings, and visiting church ward members is turned upside down as a disturbing situation takes shape in her seemingly idyllic neighborhood. Young wife and mother Carrie Helm has disappeared. Carrie’s husband, Jared, claims that she has abandoned the family, but Linda doesn’t trust him. As she snoops, trying to learn more about the Helms’ circumstances, Linda becomes convinced Jared murdered his wife and painted himself as a wronged husband. 
** **
Inspired by a chilling true crime and written by a practicing Mormon, The Bishop’s Wife is both a fascinating peek into the lives of modern Mormons and a grim and cunningly twisted mystery.

Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from a vacation read This book doesn't require much thought, even in solving the murder, so good for a vacation read. I was hoping for more insights from the point of view of the author (a Mormon) on the (Mormon) Bishop's Wife.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't really enjoy this book Although the actual story was interesting enough, I found the protagonist to be entirely too self-absorbed for my taste and too smug in her belief that she should be able to interfere in any way she wants - despite being wrong on more than once occasion.
