The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen
A novel of suspense that explores the complexities of marriage and the dangerous truths we ignore in the name of love.
When you read this book, you will make many assumptions.
You will assume you are reading about a jealous wife and her obsession with her replacement.
You will assume you are reading about a woman about to enter a new marriage with the man she loves.
You will assume the first wife was a disaster and that the husband was well rid of her.
You will assume you know the motives, the history, the anatomy of the relationships.
This is mystery writing at it’s finest. This was so messed up!
I wasn’t sure what to expect from this, and frankly I picked it up on a whim since it sounded intriguing, but I’m so glad I did.
So many twists and turns and switchbacks and false leads and different story lines. But, even so I never felt like I lost my place trying to keep track of what was going on. There were so many things that I never figured out until the very last possible minute. All the threads wove together that seen on their own made no sense but together built this rich story with loads of subtle clues and nuances. I can’t think of a single plot hole. Every single piece was planned out perfectly.
Pay attention to the blurb.
They’re telling you exactly what to expect. I read it. I still arrogantly thought I knew what was going on. I assumed so much when I was told I shouldn’t. I should have listened.
No one is exactly who they seem. Motives are hidden and convoluted. You’ll second guess everything you think you’ve figured out and you’ll be just as surprised as I was when you finally figure out, or are told, what’s actually going on.
What a fun ride!
