The Wife Between Us

The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen

4.25 wild and crazy stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟.25


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.


Wow! This book and The Last Mrs. Parrish were remarkably similar… I thoroughly enjoyed both books, and it is impossible not to compare…. However, I think I found The Last Mrs. Parrish A little more compelling…. I will also be posting my review for that book today, finally!

Well, onto this book, where to start without giving too much away…. Vanessa is the scorned ex-wife, trying to make life hell for her replacement…. or is she? Richard is the perfect doting husband always there for his wife to lean on….. or is he? As I’m sure all my avid psychological thriller reading friends know, things are not always as they seem….

Vanessa was a very complicated character and I grew to really like her by the end of this book…. I loved how the story was told…. it started out leading you in one direction and then took a giant turn in another direction…..

The last 25% of this book was unputdownable….. it was crazy….. twist after twist after twist….. and just when I thought there could not be any more yet another twist! An absolutely wonderful surprising ending to this book!

I would absolutely recommend to all fans of psychological thrillers!

PS: at the end of The audiobook there was an interview with the authors…. I found it very interesting that they wrote this book in tandem…. rather than passing it back-and-forth like most others who collaborate on a book do…. sure hope they decide to collaborate again because this was fabulous!

🎧🎧🎧 audiobook narration 5 fabulous stars! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Julia Whalen is absolutely one of my all-time favorite narrators! Ever since amazing Amy…. she has held a special Space in my audiobook heart💕

Read Between the Lies,
