Book Review: The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen

The Wife Between Us is Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train, on steroids! This is a fast-paced psychological thriller that keeps you guessing from the first page to the last. The minute you think you have this story figured out, there is a twist that leaves you gasping, ’I didn’t see that coming!’.

The story is essentially about a husband and wife, how sometimes love blinds you from seeing the truth, and the havoc lies and egos can cause in any relationship. It’s also a story of the thin line between love, hate, and fear. Love is a finicky feeling, it can make you do crazy things. When love starts to suffocate or own the other person in the relationship, that’s when lines are blurred.

I don’t want to give too much away, but the basic synopsis is a wife that learns her ex-husband is engaged and getting married again. This news shatters her for obvious reasons, and she acts in desperation to reach out to the other woman but also begins to open the door to her past prior to her marriage and the incidents that took place during her marriage that she had buried in her subconscious. I feel like I have said too much already!

The characters in this book are thought out and each one has an important part to play. This was a fast read, as there are a lot of twists and I would recommend reading it quickly so as to keep on top of the storyline.

This is a must-read for this summer! Hurry up before the movie comes out (there isn’t any news of one, but I can totally see it, being a movie).

Happy reading Mommas!
