    2. I KNEW IT 2 1 2 stars Ugh, I m almost as disappointed in myself as I am in this book I don t consider myself an especially astute mystery thriller reader Pull out a good twist and I will probably be surprised But here I saw the first big twist coming, and the string of twists after that left me feeling cold Trust me to be wearing my detective glasses at the exact moment I really needed to be surprised.The Wife Between Us basically introduces itself in the blurb as a book full of twists Assume no [...]


    3.

    4. 2.5 starsI know I am probably going to get beat up for this, but here goes nothing.Secrets, lies, and a whole lot of over the top twists make up The Wife Between Us This was a fun and entertaining read, but in the end it wasn t the right book for me I loved the first half of this book I ate up every word, and dreaded the moment when I had to put it down I was surprised by the first twist it threw me for a loop Seriously, I was so addicted to this book that I read it every chance I got, including [...]


    5. This little number is now available My favorite thriller of 2017WOWOWOWOWOWI am leaving my first impression above because it still fits how I am feeling several hours after finishing this book I think some may find the first third of this book slower building which I happen to love and possibly even a tiny bit confusing I will not give anything away, but keep going Trust me I already have a book hangover from this because my next book is not written nearly as well So about that, the writing is f [...]


    6. This is without doubt a tense psychological thriller that makes a impact It has you wondering if what you were reading was for real, and re reading to check It has you questioning what you think you know and where nothing is as it seems Vanessa Thompson is a divorced woman who is barely managing to keep herself together and her days off from her job at Saks endanger her employment She exists in a alcoholic haze, the wine bottles in her home attest to this Vanessa used to be married to the wealth [...]


    7. I have been sitting on this review for awhile now, thinking on how I want to write it Each time I started a sentence, I was giving away too much of the plot I went into this book blindly I saw that the ratings were awesome and noticed it was a thriller which is my favorite genre, its not only just a thriller but a psychological thriller I did read the blurb and the blurb didn t give anything away either I had no idea what this book was about, and this book has lots of twists and turns that are f [...]


    8. The new IT psychological suspense novel to be released in stores everywhere in January 2018 is GOOD It s really GOOD ZERO SPOILERS I personally think it must have been a KICK OF FUN for authors Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen to collaborate together There is a wonderful YouTube of both authors speaking about how they went about writing it together they didn t each just take one character They both worked on everything and it sure sounds like they treasured working together Its very cool to se [...]


    9. NOW AVAILABLE every time i read a review where a book is praised as being compulsively readable, i roll my eyes ev er y timed i don t know if this particular book has received that lazy praise umbrella anywhere, but in general, it s one of those overused empty calorie assessments that tells me nothing about a book but is taking up space and time where i could have been reading something useful which is how most karen eyerolls are earned and yet i gulped this book down, i got mad when i had to p [...]

    11. The Wife Between Us is a 2017 St Martin s Press publication Engrossing domestic thriller This book got such a tremendous response from my fellow GR friends, I shot it up to the top of my TBR list, ignoring my usual cautionary optimistic approach to well received popular books, because I just had a feeling this one would deliver Richard s first wife, Vanessa, was dumped for a younger woman after many years of marriage Gone were all the trappings of wealth she had enjoyed as she struggles to put h [...]


    12. 4.5 When a book can create a buzz when my sense of anxiety notches up I know I ve come across a great read This fantastic new release by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen did just that for me With a constant aura of anticipation and unease, Just what we love when reading a thriller I breezed through the pages I was reminded partially through, thank you Brenda that a wicked twist lay ahead Yet even with a heads up, I never saw it coming Whaaat And bonus there were plenty to come A fantastic, mi [...]

    14. Review was originally published on Through the Chapters Blog 3 stars Have you heard about the ironic process theory which deals with the attempts to suppress certain thoughts and by this means make them likely to surface For example, imagine a situation where someone tells you not to think about pink elephants So, what are you doing You are thinking about those pink elephants You picture them in your mind in all their glory and even when you try to think of something else they invade into your [...]


    15. EEK A twister blister formed in my poor brain and it was ready to burst This thriller had a twist that made me think three things, explanations that jumped fast around inside my head, irritating the hell out of the blister Either I was an absolute dummy, or I had meandered into the Twilight Zone, or the publisher or editor had made a mistake that was mammoth and unforgiveable My 10 step journey 1 Was going along just fine, enjoying this fast moving thriller La dee da, la dee da 2 Got hit WHAP Wh [...]

    17. I m between 3 and 3.5 stars Maybe 3.25 In my marriage, there were three truths, three alternate and sometimes compelling realities There was Richard s truth There was my truth And there was the actual truth, which is always the most elusive to recognize This could be the case in every relationship that we think we ve entered into a union with another person when, in fact, we ve formed a triangle with one point anchored by a silent but all seeing judge, the arbiter of reality Vanessa s marriage i [...]

    23. Holy Cow UN believable To be honest, at first, I thought this novel was just another contemporary version of Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned but NO way THE WIFE BETWEEN US is exceptionally creative and SO MUCH MORE Then.ion set in for 2 minutes BUT I soon found it was all part of the author s elaborate scheme to set up the reader, SOif you gave up along the way, you just may want to pick up where you left off because for me THE WIFE BETWEEN US is a winner of a debutYES, a debut I ll not g [...]


    24. Many of my friends raved about this book Well, I m the odd one out I was enjoying this for awhile, but then confusion set in for a good portion of the book, and I just simply wasn t enjoying it any.However, thank you to NetGalley and St.Martins Press for the ARC.


    25. Copy furnished by Net Galley for the price of a review Perfect husband Perfect wife Perfect life You do not want to be the one who mars the perfection Richard intends to protect his fairy tale with any means necessary Make no mistake, he is very particular He s always with you, whether physically present or not Note the excellence of the beautiful bride and groom cake topper You don t know how very fragile it is, nor how hollow A disconnect, then isolation, a replacement, a vacant wedding gown O [...]


    26. 4.5 Stars Traveling Sisters Review by Brenda and Norma We read The Wife Between Us with three of our Traveling Sisters Kaceey, Susanne and Lindsay The Wife Between Us is an angst driven, clever, gripping, suspenseful and not your typical domestic psychological thriller novel that was an absolutely thrilling and exciting read We went into this one thinking we were going to be prepared to look outside of the box and figure out some of those shocking twists We had our game on and we were on the loo [...]


    27. A high 4 stars for clever addictive story telling I haven t been glued to a book in the same way as I was to The Wife Between Us in a long time It s not perfect, but sure works as a powerful diversion It s really hard to say anything about the story without giving too much away I will say that it starts with alternating points of view alternating between an ex wife and a soon to be new wife There are lots of twists and turns, and things keep not quite being as they seem I ve read quite a few dom [...]

    29. The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen is a mystery thriller read that already has readers talking months before it s scheduled release Picking up this book I was a bit hesitant because who hasn t read over and over again that this will be the next Gone Girl or Girl on the Train only to be a bit of a disappointed Well The Wife Between Us didn t promise to be the next anything but guess what, I think I finally found the one that surpassed the promises regardless The book starts [...]


    30. As with most domestic psychological thrillers, I recommend going into this book knowing very little, so I won t go into the plot too much The plot thickens with a huge twist at around 40% that I didn t see coming Very clever It actually took me a few minutes to process what I was reading The blurb says it all assume nothing After the first huge twist, there are several to come There were too many twists to call it predictable but there was some repetitiveness and a character turnaround that had [...]
