This story had every element a good story should have. There are strong intertwining plots, attention to detail, but best of all fleshed out, well-written and well-rounded character development. There’s an abundance of well illustrated scenes that really make you feel like you are right there in the story, and that's something I really look for in a good book. From the opening chapter, setting the tone for the entire work, to the end at which you find yourself wanting more and more. It is a great read, and is filled with dramatic and well-described moments that will stay with you for a long time. This captivating and commendable work had me immersed from the beginning. The story flows from scene to scene with ease, and the author shows exceptional ability when it comes to storytelling. The writing style is such that I was drawn into the story from the very beginning and this doesn't happen
for me very often. It’s one of those stories that come along once in a while that makes you want to read it non-stop until you get to the end. I’m giving nothing further away here. And this, I hope, will only add to the mystery and enjoyment for the reader! A highly recommended read. Five stars from me. I’ll certainly be looking forward to reading more from Jane Finch in the future. I received a copy for my unbiased review.

Murder, murder, everywhere! This story had a lot of murders in it, and they were all centered around one central thing: getting away with murder. There is a mystery here, too, that is incredibly engrossing, and as soon as I started reading the story I was unable to stop. The characters were interesting and creative, and the author did a great job of setting the stage and building up the conflict. Highly recommended novel, and one I was unable to put down until I'd finished.

This is the second book I have read by authoress Jane Finch and I have enjoyed them both. The Black Widows offers the reader a well developed plot with believable ‘real’ characters. If you enjoy a good murder, then this is a book you will love reading because there are plenty of them. For nothing else, just get this story for the terrific ending. Finch is the real deal and an absolute pearl is a sea of Amazonian mediocrity.
Amazon Five Star Review by F J Thomas
With the title, I had a certain expectation of what the story would be about. What I didn't expect however was for the author to do such a great job with the characters she created and the path she took to tell such a great story. Before I even realized it, I found myself sympathizing with the three main characters. She's done a great job and drawing the reader in to the dark side to see what their thought processes and reasoning is like. Loved this book and found myself thinking about it even after I had finished it!
Amazon Five Star Review by Angela Deppeler
The Black Widows is a fascinating book about murders. Lots of murders. It's actually several different stories with a coinciding center. It opens at a little coffee shop and follows three women as they murder their ways through their lives to amass their individual fortunes. The stories offer a diorama view into the lives of Suzannah, Jessica and Caprice. Three women who plot and kill husband after husband. The ending is a bit of a surprise and I won't spoil it. But I will say Ms Finch's inclusion of real life murders at the back of the book is fascinating. This is a novella well worth a read and a re-read. Kudos Ms Finch!
