SYNOPSIS

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 THOUGHTS

Finally a domestic thriller that didn’t disappoint me!

I thought this book did a great job slowly building suspense. The twists were well-executed and timed perfectly so I didn’t see most of them coming. While this is not the most original thriller I’ve read, it still surprised me til the very last page. The good writing made this story stand out among of sea underwhelming thrillers, even if it did have some slow sections and unnecessary backstory.

I read this for a buddy read, and a lot of people in my chat did not like the epilogue, but I personally loved that final twist and thought it added new dimensions to the plot that brought the story full circle.

Although some aspects of this story were familiar, I highly recommend this to readers looking for a solid, suspenseful thriller.
