Review: The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekanen

The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekanen releases 1/9/18 from St. Martin's
***Disclaimer:: I was given a copy of this release in exchange for an honest review. I received no additional compensation. ***

Goodreads Summary:
A novel of suspense that explores the complexities of marriage and the dangerous truths we ignore in the name of love. When you read this book, you will make many assumptions. You will assume you are reading about a jealous wife and her obsession with her replacement. You will assume you are reading about a woman about to enter a new marriage with the man she loves. You will assume the first wife was a disaster and that the husband was well rid of her. You will assume you know the motives, the history, the anatomy of the relationships. Assume nothing.

My Review:
The summary tells you to "assume nothing" so I was simply enjoying my mildly confused state until I finished Part 1. Then my head exploded. Whaaaaaaaaat???!!!! I did NOT see that coming! And I love when that happens. There was no way I was putting this book down after that revelation and I sped through the rest it in a single day. Grab this one up and settle in for a creepy marital thriller that will have your jaw dropping.

This sounds like it might make for a good Reading Group discussion.

That 'whaaaaaat?' is a great endorsement. :-) I'm glad you enjoyed this thriller, Rhiannon.

Judy, it would be so fun to hear what everyone thought during the twists. I think it'd be a great Reading Discussion. Carmen, I love when I don't see a twist coming! I feel like a lot of times I know what's going to happen and that's disappointing!
