The Wife Between Us – Review

Thanks to St. Martin’s Press and Netgalley for the chance to read and review this novel!IMG_8223.JPG

Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen are about to be household names in the realm of powerhouse women authors. I’ve seen this book everywhere and it hasn’t even been published yet! Readers everywhere are hyped up and salivating for a taste. The blurb tells us very little (thank you for that!), except to “assume nothing” and it could not be more accurate. To avoid spoiling anything for potential readers, I’ll keep my review short and sweet as well.

I’ll admit, when I started reading, it took me a little while to get into The Wife Between Us. The plot was a slow roller, descriptive in mundane tasks, and then BAM! Plot twist. I was knocked off my rocker. Completely shocked and confused, I had to go back and re-read about five times to make sure I was truly getting what was happening. Needless to say, I did not see that one coming, which is rare for me these days. Sometimes I feel like I’ve seen every twist an author can throw at me. Happily, I can say this duo proved me wrong.

When Part II starts, readers will not be able to put this book down. You might as well super glue it to your hands because it’s not going anywhere. If you think you have an idea what will happen, guess again, because you’ll be proved wrong time and time again.

I’ve seen this novel compared to Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train. Oftentimes I hate these comparisons used to sell books, but I feel like they are actually warranted for this title. I clearly see the similarities and daresay The Wife Between Us feels like a perfect mash-up of the two. Start the year with this cleverly written novel, folks! It’s new, different, and heartwarming in the most unexpected of ways. As the story has sunk in for the past couple of days, I feel even more connected and in awe of the twists and turns within the pages. I decided to bump up my rating from three stars to four because I’m still thinking about this book days later. I’m slightly stingy with my stars and ended feeling like I needed more knowledge about the secondary character, Maureen, than I received (just read it), hence the lower rating. Above all, this book will be a solid read for 2018 reading lists. Find the links to pre-order below and start your new year off with a page-turner.
