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.
The Wife Between Us is a book like no other I’ve read. I thought I had it all figured out but boy was I wrong. There are so many plot twist and turns that the they really keep the reader on their toes. I’m not going to say to much since I don’t want to give away even the tiniest bit of information. Just know that this book is so good and you have to add it to your TBR, and move it to the top! Nellie is a woman who you feel a bit sorry for her. She has the love of her life’s ex-wife who just can’t seem to leave her alone. She really is starting to question this woman’s sanity and her own safety. Vanessa is just trying to help she doesn’t want Nellie to fall into the same trap she fell into. Can Vanessa save Nellie without risking her own life? Is Richard really prince charming or someone all should fear?
The authors have a lot of back story to set up so stick with it. The beginning might seem a bit slow but is worth it. I enjoyed this book so much and this may end up being a favorite mystery – thriller – suspense book I read so far this year. I didn’t want to put down but also didn’t want it to end. I can’t wait to read more from them in the future.
