Anita Shreve, New York Times bestselling author of The Stars are Fire "The Wife Between Us delivers a whip smart, twisty plot in a taut, pacy narrative. It's terrific and troubling. This is one scary love triangle where you won't know who to trust. I loved it."

This book has a very interesting premise- the wife of a controlling and manipulative husband must come to grips with her past while dealing with a tumultuous present and a murky future. There are a couple of unexpected twists in the plot, and this makes for an interesting read. However, the end tied things up so neatly that the book lost its‘ punch for me. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

I devoured this book in two sittings. The story kept me hooked from the beginning and had some quite unexpected twists. Assume nothing!

This book was a pleasant surprise. A friend gave me this, and I did not know what to expect. It ended up being an engaging story. I have to admit that the twists kept me guessing and they totally got me. I enjoyed not knowing what would come next. I liked this one. It has been a while since I have been kept so off kilter while reading a book.

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.

Five dinos for this one. Solidly written plot. So many twists you dont see coming. A very relatable main character. I did several double takes as the story unfolded. One of the twists actually had me reaching out to friends who've read the book so I could be like UM I HAVE QUESTIONS. I would definitely recommend!

Livelovebark I really liked this one too. I listened to it on audio, it ‘reads‘ well in that format too 3w
Whimsical.Curiosity @Livelovebark good to know. I may actually listen to it now and see if I can pick up on some of those subtle plot twist suggestions 3w

I actually finished this a couple days ago, but I couldn‘t think of how to rate it. I think it‘s because I once lived a marriage much like the one in the book, and that always kinda throws me when it comes time to write a review. That‘s all I‘m saying because I don‘t want to spoil it for anyone. But I liked this a lot. It was a quick, entertaining read. Definitely an easy weekend or vacation read. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

marleed Dang. I hope you are in a good place now! 4w

Keeping track of this plot was like what!? A lot of twists. I thought I knew what was going on and then it changed. Which I like because sometimes it sucks when you can guess the solution so easily. I finished this off on my 30 min walk today for #bfc and let me just tell y‘all. It‘s too hot to live right now! Time for a cold shower.

Oh twisty twisty. This is a pretzel of a book.🥨

I listened to this on audio, and even though the narrator sounded a bit robotic, it definitely held my interest. Was it the best twisty book ever, no, but still a solid pick.

This was a book full of twists and turns! I enjoyed it as it reminded me of “The Breakdown” by B.A. Paris in ways! At the end I read a sample of another book “An Anonymous Girl” by the authors and will definitely be adding it to my list to read!

5/6 kids in the pool, 1 kid took a run, 1 adult in the hot tub, 1 adult inside reading or napping, 1 adult prepping dinner, and I‘m reading (this book has gotten SO GOOD) - I‘ll be on clean up duty later. It‘s raining, but I‘m under an umbrella and the kids don‘t care. Immediately after this photo was taken, there was a streak of lightning and a clap of thunder. They scattered from the pool like roaches when a light is turned on! SO FUNNY!

The wife between us

I might have to throw in a few more at some point for some book spine poetry!

Have you read any of these?

This is an interesting book. I kept thinking how confusing the story was - all the twists, flashbacks, deceptions. I was worried that I was missing something until the authors admitted how confusing the story is, like an octopus with the legs going all over the place. Even with all of the confusion I enjoyed the story. I did not see the ending and had an "ohhhh wow" moment.

This was a quick read, and it kept me entertained, but when I finished I didn't have strong feelings about it. Kept me reading, but I felt like it wanted to keep surprising me with twists that I didn't think were very surprising. It was an average 3/5 ⭐ for me.

Tonight I read by candlelight on our deck. What a resplendently luminous patchwork the clouds have created for the moon to shine through tonight! I also noticed the first lightening bugs of the season cavorting in the yard. Welcome back, wee bringers of joy! I am so happy to see you again. 🖤#springtimeintheozarks #grateful #maketimeforjoy

Ericalambbrown @Freespirit They are also called fireflies. They have bioluminescence so they flash green in their lower abdomen. They are actually a type of beetle. When it gets warmer here in Missouri you can see them flashing all over the yard. It‘s pretty nifty to watch. 😊 3mo

rretzler I was thinking that it‘s early for lightning bugs, but then I realized it‘s almost June, which is when we‘ll get them in Ohio (if it ever warms up.) What great memories of catching them I have from my childhood and both of my sons‘, too. 3mo

bookandbedandtea @Ericalambbrown I live in Colorado. I assume it doesn't get warm enough, early enough, here for lightening bugs. (It was still snowing last week) On the bright side it deters a fair number of other bugs too. 3mo

I liked this more than I expected, especially after seeing some bad reviews. Between the synopsis and clues throughout I felt like the first "twist" halfway in wasn't supposed to be a huge surprise and I liked that the MC suddenly gained a lot more agency after that and broke away from stereotypes of the genre. There were a lot of subplots with mini twists but I felt they worked together thematically so they didn't stretch my disbelief too much.
