Friday Reads: The Wife Between Us By Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen


A must read!! I can’t recommend this book enough. Wow! What a page-turner. I stayed up all night and didn’t realize it until I read the last page. If you like books with twists and turns like Behind Closed Doors or Girl on the Train, you will love this. It kept me guessing until the end. I am an avid mystery and thriller reader and often have the book figured out halfway through but not with this one. Right in the middle, when I thought I was figuring it out, a huge twist that made me question everything I had read up until that point.  The entire story took a left turn and the twists never stopped. This book will have you questioning everything. Believe me, you want to read this book! It’s hard to give it a review without giving anything away so just let me say once again – YOU WANT TO READ THIS BOOK!!


Praise for The Wife Between Us:

“Readers who were enthralled by B.A. Paris’s Behind Closed Doors and Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl will love the skewed psychology and shifting perspectives of this domestic thriller.” —Library Journal starred review


The Wife Between Us delivers a whip smart, twisty plot in a taut, pacy narrative. It’s terrific and troubling. This is one scary love triangle where you won’t know who to trust. I loved it.” –Gilly Macmillan, New York Times bestselling author of What She Knew


“A twisty, mind-bending novel about marriage and betrayal. A gripping plot and fascinating characters; this book will keep you turning the pages and guessing until the very end. A must-read!” –Lauren Weisberger, New York Times bestselling author of The Devil Wears Prada


“This amazing story gallops along at breakneck speed, with an ending that smacks you between the eyes and takes your breath away. These authors are destined to become trail blazers in the field of psychological suspense books that explode in your hands!” —Nancy Simpson-Brice, Book Vault
