A Widow’s Tale by Frances Paul ~ My Thoughts #AWidowsTale

A Widow’s Tale by Frances Paul
Publication date: January 21st 2020
Genres: Adult, Suspense, Thriller

A trained killer. One kill list. A world of hurt.

In this novel, author Frances Paul introduces a complex and driven young lady determined to uncover the truth surrounding the murders of her parents and to bring to justice the people responsible for the cruel act.

Karina Navarre, a Cuban national, lived a life that would be described as anything but easy. After witnessing the brutal murder of her parents, Karina’s life spiraled out of control, until a former KGB officer agreed to take her under his wing and train her.

Eight years later, the girl who has been discarded and forgotten is introduced to the underworld – resilient and ready to take her life back. But when tragedy strikes again, Karina turns into a force to be reckoned with, a woman out for revenge.

Fueled by her grief, Karina sets off on a breathtaking journey of twists and turns, fighting in a world where women are deemed inferior. But she’s determined to avenge the deaths of those she lost, even if that means risking everything including her own life in the process. Karina Navarre has a list, and she’s crossing off names…one by bloody one.

Thrilling, unpredictable, fast-paced, and powered by a grieved widow’s inexorable sense of duty.

My thoughts about A Widow's Tale ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first line.)

First line—"'This is fantastic, Princesa?' 'Yes, papa. I saved the best for last.' 'I see that.' Carlos much admired his daughter's painting of their old house in Trelew, Argentina."

First of all, I just have to mention this cover. Isn't it intriguing? It sure captured my attention. 

And then there was the first chapter. Wow! That sure grabbed my attention too. What a way to start off a story. 

Karina is only ten years old when she silently watches as her parents are killed right in front of her. The bad men left her alive..... which was a big mistake on their part. Revenge is what drives this little girl her entire life. 

I have to admit that this type of book is not my usual reading material but the cover and the synopsis drew me in. This story kept me engaged until the very end. I'm glad I took a chance on a book that made me take step outside of my comfort zone. 

A Widow's Tale is full of intrigue, revenge, evil, and love. Twists and betrayals will definitely keep you turning the pages. 

I received an ARC of A Widow's Tale from Goodreads and this is my honest opinion.
