4 stars from me!
What a topsy turvy, twisty turny little thriller this is!
I think the best way to read this book is literally just to get on an read it, ignore all the existing reviews, clear your mind and dive in.
You will need your wits about you to keep up with the storyline which cleverly unravels – often leading you further along to yet another wrong conclusion.
Some likeable characters but actually not that many, which I always find to be a brave move from the author or authors in this case as I’ve noticed now that there are two names listed on the cover. (I wonder how that whole process works?)
All loose ends are tied up as the story comes to a close but brace yourself as there are lots of loose ends and lots of pieces of information which pull together to tighten the noose around a cracking read.
I’ve seen lots of reviews which compare this to Gone Girl and, although I see why, I personally don’t think The Wife Between Us would make for a blockbuster movie – maybe I’ll be proved wrong on that one.
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.
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.
