The description didn’t give me much to go on, but it seemed interesting enough to give it a go.
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.
The first part had me feeling “this poor girl just can’t let it go”. I knew there’d be more to the story than what was being presented, but I didn’t see the first twist coming.
Given some of the plot elements in the story, the second twist didn’t seem legit but hey, human emotions aren’t always straight forward. I wasn’t totally surprised about the third because it seemed to complete the story.
The story was okay although implausible in parts. I didn’t see how some of it could come about, but in any sort of fiction there’s an element of willing suspension of disbelief I think so we’ll just go with it.
I didn’t love Vanessa at first, then grew to like her more, but I don’t know how I feel about her at the end.
I can’t tell you more without revealing too much of the plot and ruining some of it for you, so I can’t ask the usual question about if you’d read this book. I will ask you though, would you read a book you knew very little about? Also, if you read a book with a lot of twists, do you go back and read it again looking for clues?
