The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen is a mystery/thriller read that already has readers talking months before it's scheduled release. Picking up this book I was a bit hesitant because who hasn't read over and over again that this will be the next Gone Girl or Girl on the Train only to be a bit of a disappointed? Well The Wife Between Us didn't promise to be the next anything but guess what, I think I finally found the one that surpassed the promises regardless.
The book starts readers off by introducing them to Vanessa, the wife that was. Vanessa is struggling to recover after her marriage and losing all that she once had all the while worrying and wondering what her husband is now doing. Then we meet Nellie, the wife that will be. Who do we root for? Who do we hate? As we dive into these characters feelings will form and thoughts on how the story will go will pop into your head but whatever you think you know, think again. With so many twists it will make your head spin this book is sure to keep readers on their toes.
Each part of this story is told in sections during the book and with each section I was scratching my head and wondering if I had read things right. These authors certainly found a way to confuse and confound readers and make them love every minute of it. We as readers all hear the phrases unputdownable and a definite page turner all the time but how often do those actually come true? Well, I'd highly suggest if you are looking for that next jaw dropping read you really should pick up a copy of The Wife Between Us.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
