First off, Happy Easter! Hope all of you are having a wonderful and blessed Sunday.
I actually am pretty proud of myself for this timely book review seeing as it is April 1st. That being said, I basically read the book I’m about to review in one sitting yesterday. I’ve been trying to read one book a month, so I needed to fulfill my goal. Definitely worth it because the book I chose to read for March was a home run!
I picked up The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen because I saw so many bloggers and other authors reading and recommending it. I knew I had to read it and let me tell you, IT DID NOT DISAPPOINT!
To give you a brief overview, we meet Vanessa who is a shattered middle-aged woman who is divorced and trying to cope with her newly single life. We also meet Nellie, a woman who is young, newly engaged trying to accept the new, luxurious life she’s about to gain. As you read both points of view of these women, you begin to make fair assumptions about their lives, but as GoodReads puts it best, assuming nothing. This is not the book to assume anything because once you think you know what’s going on, you realize you have no clue at all.
The Wife Between Us is every bit suspenseful and mesmerizing. A true page-turner. I read 80% of this book in a matter of hours. It’s not particularly a lengthy story nor is it a difficult read, but the genuine mystery and intrigue will make you not want to put the book down. I literally gasped out loud so many times from shock. I felt like a damn fool when the first twist was revealed because there were hints that if you read carefully you would have known what was really going on vs. what the author wants you to think is going on.
As I write this review, it’s hard to not give away spoilers because there are so many crucial parts of this story that all connect back together in the end. Literally, just when you think you’re done with the final chapter, there’s an epilogue that throws in one final twist that was amazing and made everything come full circle. The authors do a really good job a tieing the past and the present all together. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK! It’s worth the hype. It’s worth wasting a few hours reading it all in one sitting because you’ll get so easily sucked into the story. It needs to be made into a movie!
