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.
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.

I usually play a game whenever I read a mystery. I try to see if I can predict the outcome or the next steps of the plot and usually I can guess what comes next. The Wife Between Us confused me at a lot of parts, mainly because it switches between the two main characters, Nellie (the new wife) and Vanessa the discarded wife. Vanessa warns Nellie not to marry Richard and shows exactly what she means in subtle flashbacks and sequences. I know so many wives where the divorce was a blessing and that Vanessa would try to warn Nellie about him just hit something in me.
I could not predict every twist and turn in this one! Every time I thought I had the plot figured out, the authors would yell, “TWIST!” Of course, this premise of the story is one we have read before, with the old wife trying to tell the young wife that what happened to her will happen to you. In this case, the new wife should listen. Of course, the ending isn’t exactly what I was expecting but in some ways, I got just what I asked for. This is a perfect summer read when you want something that will keep you turning the pages.
