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.

    Phenomenal! Highly recommend!
  • Anticlimactic and predictable

    By Ad0210
    *SPOILERS* The book started out promising but just progressively went downhill. At times it was boring and at times predictable. Even the plot twists were dull. That being said, the thing most infuriating about this book (without spoiling too much) is the author team’s statement that Domestic Violence can be quelled by a woman making herself less attractive.

    Spoiler Alert! I skipped over large parts of this, as the story was too long and convoluted. Wife beater and abuser enabled by deranged sister, Richard should have been charged and stopped by Kate, Nellie/Vanessa, Emma! Stereotypical roles and anger revenge blame game end in happy ever after not believable.

  • Waste of time

  • Finished in a day

    By PaigeAshK
    I really enjoyed this book, especially when it took an unexpected turn on part two where I had to ask the person who recommended it to me if I was understanding it correctly. A thriller where each chapter reveals a new connection and keeps you needing to know more. Def a must read 10/10
  • Couldn’t put it down!

    By MellaBella21
    One of the best books I’ve read in a while. Full of twists and turns to leave to guessing and wanting more. Just when you think you know where the story is going... it flips and surprises you. Awesome story line and great writing! I couldn’t put it down!

    Couldn’t put this book down. Such a good read. Have to read again to get it all straight!
  • Thrilling read, poor ending

    By AmySaysGetBent
    I read this book so fast. I couldn’t put it down. I loved not knowing what was the truth. I felt the ending was rushed though, hence the 4/5. Will still recommend, but will mention my opinion that the ending flopped.

    Some plot twists were interesting however the ending was anti-climatic. About three quarters into the book I was ready for it to end.
