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.

Purposely confusing book. Too much like hard work to sort out.

I kept waiting for this book to get going but it never did.

I love the blue of this cover, but the art on it screams, "GIRL BOOK!!!" Reading the synopsis I started y looking forward to this one. This is a fair psychological thriller. It's not exactly what you think and if you are a mystery reader you will see through it. There is a twist, but the twist comes a bit late. I think only some readers will pick up on it early. The authors kept my attention despite the characters being "Gone Girl" types (vapid characters you don't feel invested in). It was worth the read but I would suggest borrowing it from a library rather than buying your copy.

An enjoyable read; I liked being able to keep guessing all sorts of possibilities throughout the book.

There were quite a bit of twists and turns but the ending was disappointing and seemed a bit too far fetched.

I agree with many other reviewers. This was a great book with a few good twists that I didn’t anticipate. But the ending was disappointing in that it felt contrived and unbelievable. Still a fun read though.

Disappointing. Based on the reviews I expected a page turner but I mostly forced myself to read each chapter hoping it would get better. I waited for the climax and it never happened.

I was genuinely surprised by all the twists! It has been a while since I have been surprised!

This book was so hard to put down! It kept you glued! Tons of jaw dropping moments as well! Very good read!
