I can't begin to express in words how I feel about this book. My mind hasn't been blown like this since I read Gone Girl. There are just no words to describe this thriller other than what you think you know, you really don't.
When you check out the book and read the first line of the summary, “when you read this book, you will make many assumptions,” that is a total understatement. You will think a lot of things and presume so much but as the book progresses, you will be questioning thoughts and doubting your presumptions but let me just say OMG this is THE book to start your new year. There is not one moment where you want to let go and I held on for dear life because this is definitely a need to know because there were 50 shades of crazy with one twist after another.
I am so torn between talking about the book because any detail will mess it up for you so I won't but will share with you this. The summary of the book is enough to give you an idea of what it is about. In case you didn't read it, here it is:
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.
Overall, the book was perfect the way it was without being overtly predictable with the plot and your initial expectations. The characters were brilliantly written and the plot so intricately is woven together to fit like the perfect puzzle. The book had the right pace for the unraveling of all the elements that the reader needed to absorbed the quick plot twists. You really are kept on your toes especially with that unexpected ending. My assumptions in the beginning definitely were turned upside down by the time I finished the book. I've read a lot of books this year that I tell you to add to your tbr but this one is a must-read. A definite read. A read that you have to start your New Year reading because it releases January 9th. There's nothing else to say but just that it was totally worth the read!
