About the Book

A woman’s seemingly perfect second marriage is rocked by a discovery about the death of her first husband in this twisty psychological thriller from Kate White, the New York Times bestselling author whom Entertainment Weekly called “impossible to outwit.” 

After losing her husband Derrick in what appears to have been a random street crime, thirtysomething Emma has built a new life with widower Tom. Tom is kind, handsome, driven, and successful, and Emma is finally able to feel safe again, both in their relationship and in the home they've made together on the Connecticut shore.

Then one day a homicide detective shows up at Emma and Tom’s door asking questions. Though Emma had been cleared of her husband’s murder, it appears that law enforcement is taking another look at her and the case. 

What do they know? Are they on the right track this time? And most importantly, will the renewed investigation ruin Emma’s chances of a happy life? 

With twists and turns all the way to the last page, this fast-paced, expertly plotted novel will have you asking that age-old question: how well do you really know the ones you love?

Critical Praise

Praise for THE FIANCÉE: "A tense, simmering, fast-paced mystery, Kate White’s latest captivating thriller explores the secrets that lurk just under the surface of a picture-perfect façade. I raced through this story about a close-knit family’s annual gathering at an idyllic estate that quickly turns deadly. THE FIANCÉE kept me guessing until the very end, never sure who to trust—or where the danger was hiding."  - Megan Miranda

“Kate White’s newest thriller The Fiancée is a perfect poolside or beach read, as this psychological thriller has everything a great summer read needs! Told in an almost locked-room style, as we are secluded at a wealthy family’s sprawling estate, this mystery looks at what appears to be a picture-perfect family. . . . the constant threatening feeling in the air propels this psychological thriller to a truly surprising climax.” - Nerd Daily

“A twisty family drama.”  - Library Journal

“A skillfully constructed page-turner. . . .Expert pacing, characters readers can love to hate, and an intelligent heroine make this a winner. White consistently entertains.” - Publishers Weekly
