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, Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen's The Wife Between Us exposes the secret complexities of an enviable marriage - and the dangerous truths we ignore in the name of love.

Read between the lies.

  • The wife between us

    By Randbriggs
    Terrible. Started off promising and entertaining, grew into something so horrendously written. The plot twists and changes of character were so flawed, and confusing. The characters almost seemed to jumble together. The dark haired woman was mentioned in the beginning, and struck me as the protagonist and the most interesting character... yet bluntly changed ship. Terrible transitions and so anti woman. The stereotypical weak woman, cowering from her abusive husband without any dignity, and no fruitful justice.
  • It was ok, kept me guessing until the end

    By Monicaandyourmother
    I liked the book, but it was confusing at times to keep up. The story lunes switched so often, and sometimes more than once during one chapter. Some of the details seemed a little done. But overall I did enjoy the book and the plot twists.

  • Predictable

    Kept my attention for the first third then it became pretty predictable.
  • Great book!!

    By Tiny Trina
    This is such a great book. The characters are great, the suspense keeps you reading and the twists at the end is mind blowing! From the title of the book I figured it was going to be a story about an affair and it is but it’s not your typical affair kind of book. When I thought I knew how this book was going to end there is a twist I didn’t see coming and I had to keep reading until the last page and the last word. I definitely would recommend this book to anyone. Total five thumbs up 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼 🤓❤️📚❣️❣️
  • Good Book Buuuuut

    By Sylv_
    Good book & couldn’t put it down, but not sure how I felt about the ending🙄.
  • Intricate yet Predictable

    By ticklemoipickle
    This book follows two narratives. The first one details the life of Nellie, a young woman fleeing from her troubled past getting engaged to Richard, a charming, wealthy businessman. The second one depicts the journey of Vanessa, Richard’s allegedly jealous ex-wife. While link between the two narratives is revealed about halfway through the book, it gives plenty of clues that make it quite predictable. There is steady build up towards the final twist but it falls flat due to sheer predictability. Overall, an intricately written story with a twist that you definitely see coming.
