Painfully long

Wow, where to begin?? This book is painfully long. Lots and lots of repeating of events and the entire first part was unnecessary and a complete waste. The entire book, there is talk about how awful this man is but it takes until page 320 to actually get into it. Also, the main character talks several times about an event that happened years ago. Because if this event, she is paranoid about her safety. Again, all of this is mentioned several agonizing times but the actual event that caused her to be this way is not revealed until way later and it’s not even that bad. That little back story was completely pointless and added nothing to the story other than pages. The way the characters are all intertwined is pretty unrealistic as well.

Literally so amazing!

This book is so cleverly written. It's a page turner that keeps you wanting more!

It's great!

This is the first of 3 incredible books by the female writing duo of Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen. I will do my best to avoid spoilers. This book really sucked me in and made me an instant fan of these two. I read it for the first time in January of 2019. The summary states that you will assume many things and goes on to say you should assume nothing. I have never read a summary blurb so accurate. I assumed I knew what was happening. I assumed it was over. I was very wrong. Without giving anything away, there are multiple twists up until the very last page. Right when you think it's going in one direction, it completely changes course and leaves you with a severe case of literary whiplash. I loved every minute.

Kept my interest

This actually threw me a little bit, and I liked it! Took it on a plane ride and walked around connecting airports still reading. Sent a copy to my sister to read. If you like this, I recommend Then She Was Gone, The Guest List, and All The Missing Girls.

Wow. Not at all what i expected

This was a very good book. Not at all what i expected. The twist and turns in this book really drew me in.

A complex, compelling novel with many twists!

This is a real page turner, full of suspense. Assume nothing because the story is not predictable. You won't be able to put it down! Enjoy...


Such an amazing book. I read it in three days! Great plot and twist.

Twists and Turns...

Seriously, could not put this book down. I read it into the wee hours of the night. Loved the characters and the suspense. Fun read! Will be checking more out on these two authors for sure!

Loved it !!!

I liked the twisted in the story

One of my favorites thus far

One of the best books I’ve read to date. I had so many theories. Some that came close but I would have never guessed. Kept me on my toes and I enjoyed every second of it

Such an amazing book!

So many unexpected turns, such a page turner! Really keeps you on your toes!

The Wife Between US

I really enjoyed this book, it kept you guessing until the very end.

This is not a romance novel

The title sounds like this could be a romance novel. If you, like me, dislike romance novels or even romantic thrillers, I promise, THE WIFE BETWEEN US is neither. Although this book does describe a love triangle, it doesn't exactly. It seems the ex-wife is stalking and terrorizing the girlfriend, but then it doesn't. No one in this book is as they first seem. It will feel like you are constantly having to revise your understanding of people and events. As a matter of fact, halfway through the book you may want to stop and reread everything you have read so far. I did. And it won't seem that you are reading a romance novel. Because most book reviewers, in my opinion, say too much, I am careful not to do the same.


I really enjoyed this book. It was hard to put down. It was written very well and left me wanting more after each page.

page turner

I so enjoyed this book from beginning to end with its twists. I think I would love to read all this authors books.


WOW! This one captivated me. Assume nothing is such an understatement. Honestly, when flipping page to page just don’t assume AT ALL. Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen will lead you down a completely different path than you could ever expect. Initially, I felt there was a slow start as the backstory of the characters were laid out. Although I did note that Hendricks & Pekkanen portrayed that something ominous was going to happen, I did not see the twists that came. Especially that which came once I veered Part II of this novel. I had to close the book and soak in all that I just read. Evaluate the bomb that Hendricks & Pekkanen just dropped on me. My whole perspective on the start of this novel immediately changed. It was not a slow start but a well written and suspenseful lead up to a twist I never saw coming. I apologize for the bare bones review, but to elaborate on its plot, its characters, and so forth will only ruin your reading experience of this intelligently written psychological twister. It is so difficult to discuss this book without revealing surprisingly juicy spoilers, so I shall refrain. What I can tell you is get this book, read this book. The hype that surrounds it is with reason!

Twisty Page Turner

I would like to thank Netgalley and the publisher for allowing me to read an ARC of The Wife Between Us. I have read most of Pekkenan's other books and didn't even realize she was a coauthor of this book until I finished. In a book that has many twists and turns, I found myself fully immersed. Vanessa's ex husband Richard is getting remarried. We see Vanessa as she goes through dealing with this and still getting over her horrible marriage to Richard. What we don't know while we are reading it is why the marriage ended. We slowly are let into the secrets of Vanessa and Richard's marriage. I won't say too much more because of the possibility of spoiling something. But I highly recommend for people who like page turners and book that keep you guessing!

Felt a little like Deja Vu

I was able to read this early via NetGalley. It was just a mediocre read for me. I was interested in it to begin with because Sarah Pekkanen was a co-author. The book is broken out into 3 parts. upon reading the first part, it felt like the end. Then, broke out into 2 more parts that become so criss-crossed between flashbacks and character flashbacks, that I just wanted it to be over. From the beginning it felt as if the story line and the way it was written was very similar to that of Liane Moriarty. (Whom I happen to love.) Had I not read almost all of her books, then this one may have been rated higher. But I just couldn't get past feeling like I was re-reading the same story with different character names in a different city. I read it in under 48 hours, so if you are looking for something quick, this fits the bill. It's worth a read if you love chick-lit suspense. I would recommend it overall, just not as a priority read.
