Facing life alone, they turned to crime together. Dolly Rawlins, Linda Pirelli and Shirley Miller are left devastated when their husbands are killed in a security van heist that goes disastrously wrong.

Give up and forget she ever found them; 2. Hand over Harry's ledgers to the police, or to the thugs that have been hassling her for information they think she has; 3. She and the other widows could carry out the robbery themselves Novices in the craft of crime, the three women make their preparations.

WIDOWS by Lynda LaPlante was great fun to read. Another great mystery - a crime drama with detailed plot and characters by one of my favorite authors. I will have to see the movie now! ( )

Thanks to Bookishfirst.com for this ARC and also the publisher Zaffre.

I can barely give this book 2 stars since I didn't finish it.

I'm sorry to say I could not get into this book. I wanted to love it or even like it since I enjoyed the first one Widows which I also won on Bookishfirst. You definitely have to read the first one which really explained the characters of Linda, Dolly, Bella and Shirley. This one vaguely discussed the first book in the introduction. This didn't pan out to be the best sequels that I've read. I barely got to page 100 and skimmed through it and then finally gave up and read the epilogue and wasn't surprised to see that it ended exactly the way I thought it would.

I didn't care about the characters while reading this book and was disappointed that the author didn't put enough emphasis enough in the beginning of the women until just when I gave up but didn't care enough to finish it to see what happens. ( )

Female Heist
I received a free advance copy of this book and have chosen to write an honest and unbiased review. I have no personal affiliation with the author. Wow! Another great and fast-paced thriller by Lynda La Plante, one of my all time favorite authors. Three women are left widowed when their husbands were killed in a robbery gone wrong. What will they do? They band together to carry out the robbery themselves. The original plan had four people. Who was the fourth man and where is he? Will they be able to get a fourth person? This is a fast paced thriller full of surprises and secrets that I couldn’t put down. The action and suspense never quits. There is a great deal of pressure from the local cops and rival thugs. There is a certain amount of infighting among these women but in the end will they be able to pull it off? There is a surprise near the end. This book is well worth the read and I look forward to reading more from Lynda La Plante in the future. ( )

Thanks to Bookishfirst for this book.

Not only did I find the cover of this book intriguing, the book intrigued me too. I can see why this is becoming a major motion picture. I'd definitely see it. Not sure who will play who but nonetheless, it'll be an interesting cast.

These women were total opposites in every way but they came together to pull off a heist that I didn't think would happen. Dolly was such a strong woman and Shirley, Bella and Linda became strong women throughout the book that's for sure. So much going on in this book but it was easy to keep track of it since it all blended together.

I've never read Lynda La Plante's books before but now I found a new author to enjoy. I'm sure her others are just as mysterious as Widows was.

I would love to read a sequel to see what happens in the future with these ladies and what happens to the rest of the "bad guys." ( )
