    Maggie is a woman that would go to great lengths to get what she wants. I mean, she willingly married a gay man, so she could be married. Herbert her husband left plenty of nights to be with his lover and she was okay with that.... Maggie even went to find a man who looked like her husband so she could get pregnant, and so that the child would pass as theirs. Chile, she didn't stop there, she ended up killing 5 people by poisoning them with her famous gumbo when they got in her way. It all came to a stretching hault when her son Claude ate the gumbo that was meant for her husband, when he told her he was going to leave her and come clean about everything, his lifestyle and their marriage. The arsenic ended up taking her life, too. #Book22of2021 #bookworm #whatsnext

    Obviously, I had heard of Mary Monroe, but I had never read any of her books. Well, after listening to Mrs. Wiggins, I will be reading all of her books. This story was insane. We follow the story of Maggie and Hubert Wiggins, starting with their wedding day. Maggie had been molested and raped as a young girl, so she had no interest in sex. Hubert had a secret that really couldn’t come out in 1917, so Maggie was the perfect wife for him. Life goes pretty good until their son Claude is in his early 20’s. Then problems start cropping up and Maggie is a problem solver. While I would never actually do any of the things that Maggie had done, I still liked her. I could really empathize with her. The author really gave us a sense of small town life in Alabama during the Jim Crow era. Great descriptions. The narrator was phenomenal. Her voice really added to the story. The only thing that I will caution readers about that there are several mentions of suicide so if that is a trigger, be aware. Thank you to Netgalley and RB Media for the ARC. All opinions expressed are my own.
