Editorial Reviews

Review

“Full of deceit, scandal, and guilt, her novel expertly explores how rising to the top only to hit rock bottom affects a family. The consequences will leave readers reeling.” (Library Journal)

"As this compelling story unfolds, you realize nothing is as uncomplicated as it seems."  (Associated Press)

"When Phoebe and Jake Pierce meet as teenagers, she knows he’s someone on the way up, and she wants to be there as he climbs the Wall Street ladder. He gets everything he ever wanted. When it turns out that Jake’s success rests on a huge Ponzi scheme, Phoebe has to make an excruciating choice."
  (New York Post 'Must Read Books')

"Randy Susan Meyers borrowed a real-life story for the building blocks of her fourth novel, “The Widow of Wall Street,” which chronicles a couple’s marriage as they amass great wealth and then lose it all when the husband is revealed to have committed financial fraud . . . . heartbreaking."
  (The Boston Globe)

“Randy Susan Meyers' new novel explores the consequence of deception within a marriage driven by ambition and greed. The Widow of Wall Street is full of robust characters, scandal, and heartbreak. A riveting and engrossing read that I finished in one greedy gulp.
  (Alyson Richman, bestselling author of The Lost Wife )

"A ripped-from-the-headlines story about love, ambition, and forgiveness." (PopSugar)

“An engaging and sharp reflection of the rapid changes in marital dynamics over the course of the 20th century, as well as a cautionary tale about the dangers and allure of ambition in the heyday of Wall Street.” (Publishers Weekly)

Compelling. This is a great read . . . An engrossing emotional journey.”
  (Kirkus Reviews)

"Phoebe falls for Jake Pierce hard when they're still just teenagers: She seems to know even before he does that he'll go on to conquer a financial empire and rule the Wall Street scene. But the dirty secret behind Jake's success will eventually become the downfall of this couples' glittering life together. Think of The Widow of Wall Street as The Wolf of Wall Street — except told from the side of the wife, more scintillating, and a testament to the power of a woman's ability to survive it all — it's a must-read that will dazzle and repel you, in equal measure."
  (Refinery 29)

An intoxicating look into the heartbreak and deceit that exist behind the curtain of a shattered family…Meyers is a skilled writer, giving depth and painting a vivid picture from start to finish. Her writing draws readers into the book as if they lived it.” (RT Book Reviews)

 “Meyers paints a brutal, revealing tale of a woman with everything to lose." (Glommable.com)

I dare you not to read Randy Susan Meyers’ The Widow of Wall Street in one big gulp. What is it like to be married to a disgraced wolf of Wall Street, and how do you survive the aftermath of a scandal? Meyers answers the question with a fascinating page turner that somehow manages both to indict and absolve.”   (Melanie Benjamin, New York Times Bestselling author of The Swans of Fifth Avenue )

“I’ll be honest: High finance isn’t my thing and I worried I wouldn’t be able to get into The Widow of Wall Street. How wrong I was! With all the suspense of a thriller, The Widow of Wall Street quickly pulled me into the story and didn’t let me go until the last page. Randy Susan Meyers made me feel, on a visceral level, the giddiness of Phoebe and Jake’s rise to power and the mounting panic as their lives and marriage begin to crumble. Brilliantly executed and beautifully written, The Widow of Wall Street should have wide appeal.” (Diane Chamberlain, USA Today bestselling author of Pretending to Dance )
