When you read this book, you will make many assumptions.
You will assume you are reading about a jealous wife and her obsession with her replacement.
You will assume you are reading about a woman about to enter a new marriage with the man she loves.
You will assume the first wife was a disaster and that the husband was well rid of her.
You will assume you know the motives, the history, the anatomy of the relationships.
Assume nothing.

Once in awhile, you stumble (or luckily enough to be given a copy by the amazing Chelsea Humphrey) across a book that just pulsates throughout your entire thoughts, your day-to-day, grasping to find out what happened; not allowing yourself to do anything until you get to the end. The Wife Between Us is that book for me. The synopsis given to us by the publisher is very brief, and for good reason. When you initially pick up this book, you’ll immediately think of ‘oh here we go another jealous wife who’s trying to break up a couple and get her man back, #antifeminism101.” WRONG.

The Wife Between Us is a very mainstream read―insert alcoholic woman, unreliable narrator, domestic thriller(?)-esque plot, but as you read on, the storyline becomes not only much more sinister, but engaging and difficult to pinpoint (in the best way possible). You are led on a path that can best be described as Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride―seriously, you will not expect these twists and turns, I promise you that. This story is so compelling to me and it completely engulfed my daily routine since I picked it up. I was so engaged and driven to finish this book that I cancelled my errands to run to the grocery store, bought an umbrella today due to unexpected rain on my commute home in order to make sure that by beloved copy of The Wife Between Us didn’t get tarnished by NYC’s sludge rain, and stayed up later than normal so I can write this review and rave about it to all of you. Please please please pick up a copy because I need to talk to you all about this book!

*Many thanks to the publisher for providing my copy; it was a pleasure to provide my honest thoughts here.

About The Suspense Is Thrilling Me

Chelsea is a happily married mother of two who's love of mysteries can be traced back to her first Nancy Drew experience. When not reading and writing book reviews, she likes to drink wine in her jammies and pretend that she exercises.
