The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen
St. Martin’s Press (January 9, 2018)
Women’s Fiction/Psychological/Mystery, Thriller & Suspense
When you read this book, you will make many assumptions. You will assume you are reading about a jealous ex-wife. You will assume she is obsessed with her replacement – a beautiful, younger woman who is about to marry the man they both love. You will assume you know the anatomy of this tangled love triangle. Assume nothing.
Twisted and deliciously chilling, The Wife Between Us exposes the secret complexities of an enviable marriage – and the dangerous truths we ignore in the name of love.
Read between the lies.
My review will be brief because I don’t want to give anything away. All your assumptions will be wrong. Okay, maybe you might guess a few (Richard is not the Prince Charming he appears to be; he has, to me, a weird close relationship with his sister; he has a secret in his past), but you will NEVER see what’s coming. The Wife Between Us is beyond clever. Unbelievable that this was written by two authors, The words flow as one author. A novel of marriage, obsession, friendship, family, betrayal, manipulations, and more. It’s a complex psychological novel. This is a fantastic, must read domestic thriller. A Drop the Mic ending. Fast-paced and addictive. I loved everything about this book. 10 Stars read!
Thank you to St. Martin’s Press for the opportunity to read this book.
