Genre: Domestic Drama + Thriller
The Wife Between Us is deliciously complex and surprising novel with twists and turns that readers won't see what's coming. I didn't expect half of what was happening in the story and was gripping the pages so tight in anticipation of what surprise was going to come next. Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen did a wonderful job with this book and I devoured it from the first page to the last. The books in the domestic drama and thriller genre that are being published later in 2018 have a lot to live up to because this book may easily become a favorite of many this year and overshadow all others. It blew. Me. Away.
The Wife Between Us is an unsettling domestic drama and thriller with characters who are likely to astonish any reader. When you start getting an idea of what is happening in the story (for instance, who the "bad guy" is) you will be thrown through a hoop and realize you were deadly wrong. The unforeseen events will excite readers and leave them utterly CRAZED over the idea that they THOUGHT they had it all figured out when in reality, everything was more sinister...
In all honesty, I don't even want to get into the plot because I think anything I say about it will be a spoiler. You get enough information to know what you are getting into by reading the books description. However, I will say that this story is MIND-BLOWING. It's addictive, engrossing, and unexpected. Had this been published in 2017 it would have been a favorite book of the year- no questions asked. I guess well see how the other books in 2018 stack against it...
Just read this book. If you like domestic dramas, domestic thrillers, books that will leave you hanging by the edge of your seat and GLUED to the pages, you need this one. It is so worth it. Trust me!!!!
WHAT I LIKED ABOUT THE STORY
➜ The unexpected twists and turns that totally threw off my former viewpoints on the story and characters.
➜ The way the author weaved the story in three parts (I won't spoil how this is done as it would spoil the story).
➜ The overall uniqueness of the story: It's been a long time since I have read anything in this genre let alone a book as clever and mind boggling as this one.
➜ The ending: Most readers like an ending that doesn't further confuse us. You get that in this one even though it was ANOTHER twist that readers won't see coming.
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE ABOUT THE STORY
➜ Honestly, if I have to be nit-picky I could say that I didn't like the length. However, this would only be due to the fact that I wanted to badly to know what was going to happen that I grew impatient because I couldn't read as fast.
This book is a fantastic start to the 2018 releases and I look forward to more books that these two can churn out. What also excites me (besides just finding a new book to fall in love with that ISN'T a romance, is the fact that this is going to BE A MOVIE. WOHOO!!!!!!!
