Book Review: The Wife Between Us

From Goodreads:

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, Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen‘s 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:

I love a good domestic thriller. This story was twisty and intelligent, cleverly written and filled with unexpected twists and turns. The Wife Between Us is one thought-provoking book, and apparently I’m a bad book detective.


I did not see that first plot twist coming at all. I actually had to flip back a few pages to reread the end of Part One and see if I had misread something. Nope! I was thankful for that first big twist, though, because the pace picked up to my speed from there and swiftly became a page-turner.

“You need to remember that even when I’m not there, I’m with you.”


Creepy, much?! That one line sent chills down my spine. No, it’s not meant to be sweet or romantic. I saw right through that from the start. The mental illness and emotional abuse in this story was all too believable.


All I can say, without giving the main plot points away, is things are not always what they seem.


This book seems to have received mixed reviews, which is what made me so curious about it. It was a solid 4 star read for me. I think you really have to read it for yourself to be the judge of that.


If you have read the book, what did you think?

Did you know Playing House is a domestic thriller too?


Readers are saying, if you enjoyed The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen, you will enjoy Playing House and The Black Widow!

I have a confession

You probably thought I fell off the face of this earth because I haven’t had any new releases for two long years! But guess what? The sequel to Playing House is finally complete!

This duet has been so wild and intense that… I didn’t know if I was ready to unleash it into the world!

WELL, I’M READY!

How about I tell you about the amazing opportunity I have to offer you today?! That’s coming right up.

Hard to believe it’s already been two years since I last put a new book out into this world. For that reason alone, I want to do everything I can for this book. And, as you probably already know, when I go underground, I go in all the way and don’t emerge until I have something freaking awesome to share.

REVIEW:

My head is spinning right now. There’s tears in my eyes, fear in my heart and this story is not even close to being over. Just wow!! This author, in his debut release, magically weaves a plot that leaves you wondering what is going to happen next, lets you inside the heads of each of the characters, and slowly unfolds the reasons why each of them are the way they are.
