I was extremely disappointed with this book. It had been on my TBR for a while. I kept waiting for the twist everyone was raving about and was going to give it until 150 pages. At 140 it was “revealed” but made me feel more tricked than twisted. I thought I could get over it, but when the ex-wife just kept whining, I‘d had enough. It would have been okay if I expected a straightforward domestic thriller.

A story detailing marital abuse and the lengths someone will go to for control. The ending caught me off guard, but the craziest part (to me) involved the sister. I won‘t say more than that. If you like domestic thrillers, you‘ll probably enjoy this book.

This audiobook was well narrated, and that's a little tough given the complications in the story. Good plot twist in the Epilogue, don't miss that or you'll miss the crux of the story. I think I need to go back and listen again because half way through things aren't as you assumed. #listyAtoZ2022 for W

Book 32

I listened to The Wife Between Us, an engaging thriller about an abusive marriage with multiple surprising twists, one early on and the other late-in-the game. I enjoyed it more than I'd expected.

I wanted to be blown away by this one, but unfortunately I wasn‘t ☹️ I‘m giving it a soft pick because there were lots of twists, but by the end I was just worn out and wanted it to end. Some things were predictable and some I‘m still scratching my head about (the sister) This is my first book to read by these authors and I‘ll give them another go. Maybe I need a break from psychological thrillers 🤷‍♀️

What I thought was going to be the big reveal came to fruition in Part 1, certain aspects were predictable, some shocking, some were absolutely bonkers. Lots of good twists.

A woman struggling after divorce becomes obsessed about exhubs new young fiancé while guzzling wine &dealing with the reality of being broke in NYC. She finds him manipulative, but she has orchestrated deceptions of her own, how can she get his new bride-to-be listen to her?

Is anyone else reading this thinking wth am I reading? I‘m at the part where she confronts Emma and I want to think something is about to happen but damn 😳is it just my Covid brain or what?? Help!!!

EadieB I hope you are starting to feel better. I‘ve read this book. My review: A twisty plot with a scary love triangle and you don't know who to trust as the narrators are unreliable. The characters lack depth and you can not assume anything as you will be proven wrong. The novel is a bit confusing and convoluted in parts and it's not until the epilogue that you finally find out what has been going on. (edited) 4mo

Okay, the beginning of the story was really captivating, but after the first twist it started to fall a little flat. The concept was great, but it could have been executed better I think. Also some of the side plots took up too many pages (like Maggie and Jason). The final twist had me rolling my eyes. Come on really? And the whole thing w/ his sister was a little off-putting. So was she in love with her own brother? Ugh. It had potential tho..

I am glad I gave this one another chance in audiobook format. It felt like listening to a true crime podcast, I was hooked. Plot is clean and it keeps you guessing till the end. The unreliable narrator angle really works for this story.

My #BookSpin for this month, a good read but not great. Quite a few twists and an unexpected ending but overall I felt it had a lot of parts that could have been omitted and made it shorter and more dynamic, I would have enjoyed it more as a novella. Still a pick, barely one though.

I was also able to finish a #BookSpinBingo, here is my board. Thanks @TheAromaofBooks for pushing me to read more, can't tell you how much I appreciate it!

Maybe I‘ve just OD‘d on psychological thrillers. I was intrigued by the story and finished the book. Maybe I‘ve read too many books with rich, too good to be true, rich, handsome men. Think I‘ll take a break from thrillers for awhile and read a nice, interesting book that I can leisurely read. Good, not great. I think the twists were ok.

This was ok. Started a bit slow, a million things happened in the end, and the epilogue changed everything. It yielded moments of curiosity and interest but overall, a bit generic and predictable. Prob won‘t blow anyone‘s mind but worth a read!
Also check out this cute fox in a local art studio 💕 they also had an adorable wee raccoon.

I'm still not sure how I feel about this one. I understand the way the shifting perspectives contributed to the overall suspense of the book. I just didn't really enjoy it. The final twist was fabulous and unexpected. I think that storyline could have been explored more and created an intriguing story. This didn't knock my socks off but it was entertaining.

Barbie.Hudson I agree! This one was so so for me. Their, “An Anonymous Girl” was definitely better than this one. 👍🏻 2y

Surgery was long and there were some issues found but she came through and is in the hospital recovering. It's hard not being able to go see her but I should be able to talk to her on the phone tomorrow.

I felt kind of blah about this one. It was on a list of titles with killer twists, so my expectations may have been unfairly high. There were plenty of twists, but they left me underwhelmed – I didn‘t experience the highs and lows I expect from a thriller. That said, it was well written and a different reader may really enjoy it.

Not completely loving the audio. Reads too much like An Anonymous Girl. A little too removed and dispassionate to draw me in to the story.

KayleighCreativeWorld I really liked that it was similar to anonymous girl, I couldn't stop listening. What did you find you didn't like that it was similar? 1y
DHill @Kayleigh3 I think the audio in particular was hard for me to get into. It seemed flat and clinical in the narration. I also thought the MCs over-explained and it felt tedious. If I‘d read the hard copy of each I might have felt differently but I think these authors just aren‘t for me. 1y
KayleighCreativeWorld @DHill that's fair enough. They are kind of marmite books. I did listen to it in short bursts which probably helped. I can see how it is a bit over the top with explaining though 1y
