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.

Disappointing. Based on the reviews I expected a page turner but I mostly forced myself to read each chapter hoping it would get better. I waited for the climax and it never happened.

I was genuinely surprised by all the twists! It has been a while since I have been surprised!

This book was so hard to put down! It kept you glued! Tons of jaw dropping moments as well! Very good read!

I really enjoyed the beginning and middle parts of this book but found the ending slightly disappointing. That said it is an intriguing book and all the twists make for a pretty decent read.

Very hard to put down for those who like twisty mysteries. Quite a few big twists...the last one was one too many and stretched plausibility...but great fun, nonetheless!

This book is full of unexpected turns up until the very end. The constant is Robert, the prince charming who is swooping in to rescue Nellie from an "average" life without his money and assistance in shaping her destiny. Even though I did my very best to assume nothing as advised, I still found many times when the plot would take a delightful turn and give me a totally unexpected new look at the story. Highly recommended!

I really enjoyed this book. Good story. Didn't want to put it down.

This was a great read, reminded me a little of "Behind Closed Doors", but not as intense. Lots of twists and good to the last page.

I wanted to love this book but it was an okay read. The first part of the book intrigued me, I was curious to see where it would go. But then the multiple twists at the very end, where you find numerous twists upon twists jammed together felt a little contrived. A few of them were unrealistic too. A so so book.

Assume nothing is right. With all the twists I was still surprized at the end.
