Blog Tour: The Wife Between Us by Sarah Pekkanen and Greer Hendricks (Review!)

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.
Assume nothing.

Twisted and deliciously chilling, The Wife Between Us exposes the secret complexities of an enviable marriage - and the dangerous truths we ignore in the name of love.

I've been a huge fan of Sarah Pekkanen ever since I read her second novel Skipping a Beat. It's a book I still consider to be one of my all time favorites as well as one I suggest to pretty much anyone who'll listen! Therefore, when I heard about The Wife Between, a book that's one of the most buzzed about of 2018, I instantly added it to my wish list. 

The Result? The Wife Between Us is SPECTACULAR! Featuring explosive twists, complex main characters, and stellar writing, The Wife Between Us quite simply blew my mind. It's a book I finished days ago yet it's still haunting my thoughts, and if that's not a sign of a good book, I don't know what is. 

In the synopsis it says "assume nothing," and I think that's the perfect way to describe The Wife Between Us. At first, I thought I had everything figured out, but then I got to around 50% and everything I had thought to be true was SHATTERED. I wasn't even mad - I was delighted. I loved being wrong in this case, because a book that manages to rock me to my core as much as this one did is rare. 

In addition to the explosive twists, Sarah Pekkanen and Greer Hendricks divulge into a lot of hard topics within this - abuse, mental illness, moving on after a failed relationship, etc. I thought they did an amazing job of bringing all these topics together in this one as well as presenting it in a way that was realistic and handled well. 

In all, I could go on about The Wife Between Us all day, but I don't want to give anything away. So I'll end with this....

I've read Sarah's books before, and they've always managed to impress me, but this book takes my appreciation of Sarah's writing (and Greer's!) to a whole new level. This is the kind of read that makes me remember why I love a good thriller, and more importantly, why a dual narrative (and a third person one at that) can work so incredibly well when done right. Basically, add this book to your TBRs - you won't regret it!! 

Grade: A+ 

The Wife Between Us will be released on January 9, 2018!
