Who Killed My Husband by Michelle Stimpson

Who Killed My Husband by Michelle Stimpson review and blog tour

My Review

When you have the opportunity to be apart of something amazing, you take advantage of it . When I first came in contact with Michelle Stimpson, unknowingly, was through emails regarding various writing workshops. Because I didn't know the person who was sending me these emails, I ignored the emails, although I needed them. Yes, I ignored them to the point of deleting some of them. Then one day, after receiving another email, I realized that the Michelle Stimpson, from those emails, was the same person I became friends with on Facebook. God truly has a sense of humor and a way of bringing you full circle to what you need. I believe this book will bless you in more ways than one. The title, alone, speaks volume, "Who Killed My Husband?". This is a short mystery with a spiritual twist that will keep you engaged and enlightened. Once you have read the below excerpts, you will have an appetite for more. GUARANTEE!

Excerpt 

Chapter 1
“Thank you for doing this, Allan.” I kept my eyes steady on the unfamiliar, winding road sprawling before me. Already, I had braked three times for sharp turns and a pothole. 
Allan, ears covered by headphones, bobbed as though he didn’t hear my compliment. His baby smooth skin, dimples, and semi-mohawk haircut made him look much younger than thirty-two. So young, in fact, that a few times, twenty-something chicks at his DJing events had mistaken me as his older sister or his manager, even though I was only thirty. Allan thought that was funny. “It’s good for business,” he’d say, flashing his boyish grin.
I was tired of him acting like a boy. A guy. A dude. A bro. I needed him to grow up and be a man. Start thinking about things that mattered, namely his eternity. Since Allan had agreed to attend this non-church-affiliated men’s retreat, I thought my prayers were finally being answered. I had gone all out to take off work early so I could take him to Peaceful Days. Even dusted on some makeup and flat-ironed my wavy mane so he’d have this awesome picture of me in the back of his mind all weekend.
I tapped him on the shoulder and mouthed again, “Thank you for doing this.”
I knew better than to expect a “Sure thing, Ashley,” or “It’s my pleasure to go,” from him. He was either ignoring me or caught up in his music. No matter, I was used to being blocked out of his life by music, working at KRBF FM radio Dallas. His side gigs. His friends. His lifestyle.
Still, my eyes watered for a moment. The rejection stung worse than a bee. At least when a bee stung, it was defending its own territory. Allan and I were supposed to be one in God’s sight. Why he chose to turn on me—his wife of six years—and treat me like the enemy was unreasonable. We were on the same team.
At least we were until Corey died.
