Well here it is Saturday and time for another review, I have 3 more to do, and I am hoping to get them down by the end of the year and a few books that I would love to finish for the year, and I have a few that I have ready to start reading in 2020. Wow just thinking about 2020 is a little weird, where did 2019 go. And now for my review of…….
The instant New York Times Bestseller (January 2018)!
“A fiendishly smart cat-and-mouse thriller” —New York Times Book Review
“Buckle up, because you won’t be able to put this one down.” —Glamour
“Jaw dropping. Unforgettable. Shocking.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“The best domestic suspense novel since Gone Girl.” —In Touch Weekly
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.

BIO: Sarah is the mother of three boys, which explains why she wrote part of her debut novel at Chuck E. Cheese. Seriously. Sarah penned her first book, Miscellaneous Tales and Poems, at the age of 10. When publishers failed to jump upon this literary masterpiece (hey, all the poems rhymed!) Sarah followed up by sending them a sternly-worded letter on Raggedy Ann stationery. Sarah still has that letter, and carries it to New York every time she has meetings with her publisher, as a reminder that dreams do come true.

I am not sure how to review this book. I had to wait a couple of weeks to decide what and how I wanted to review it. The Wife Between Us is advertised as having twists that you won’t see coming. For me, this was partially true. There is a major twist around the midway point of the book that I did see coming, however, I didn’t know how the book was going to end until the final page.
The main characters
Nellie is a young woman living on a shoestring budget in an upper east side apartment with her BFF Samantha. She is about to marry the man of her dreams. Richard is handsome, rich, and so…solicitous. Always wanting to protect her and meet her every need.
There’s Vanessa. She’s seen better days. Her husband Richard left her for a younger woman, and Vanessa is having trouble accepting that. She went from living in a beautiful home and wearing designer clothes to working as a sales clerk and having to wait on the very women she once rubbed elbows with in high society. Vanessa is coping by drinking too much, and appears to be stalking her husband’s new paramour.
This is the first that I have read by these authors and I am sure it won’t be my last. This book was awesome and I had a hard time putting it down. If you want to read a book that will keep you guessing, I highly recommend this one. I am giving it 5 stars.
Happy reading everyone and I hope you all are enjoying your Saturday.
