Waiting on Wednesday: The Ripper's Wife

The Ripper’s Wife
by Brandy Purdy
Expected Publication Date: October 28, 2014
Synopsis from Goodreads

James's secrets are infinitely darker-he has a mistress, an arsenic addiction, and a vicious temper. But Florie has no inkling of her husband's depravity until she discovers his diary — and in it, a litany of bloody deeds...
