    • I loved this one! I've been looking for a page turner with lots of twists that would keep my interest, and this book was exactly what I was looking for. I thought the author did a great job of combining a fluid writing style and intriguing characters with a plot that held my interest until the very last page. I wouldn't characterize this as a thriller, but definitely was exciting, unpredictable, and hard to put down.
    • A contrived plot with vacuous characters that only the equally mindless could care about. I found it especially laughable that the authors felt compelled to include an epilogue that added one last bit of far-fetched nonsense.
    • 4.5/5 starsI thoroughly enjoyed reading The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen. It was a thrilling trip from the very first page. I love books that mess with my mind, so to discover all of Vanessa’s secrets was highly satisfying. I also enjoyed the mind play with the characters in Part 1… Just when I thought that I had the characters figured out in my mind, the authors threw a curveball at me. I had kind of sensed similarities between Nellie and Vanessa, but I really thought that they were more coincidental than anything else. I picked up early on that Vanessa’s ex-husband Richard was not as perfect as he appeared to be and boy was I right on the money about him. His “rich man” persona really irritated me and I really didn’t appreciate how he manipulated Vanessa into thinking that she was crazy just because her deceased mother had struggled with a mental illness. That was very devious and deceitful and did not sit with me very well. I really didn’t like Vanessa’s “replacement” Emma at all. Not even when I found out who she really was at the end of Part 3. Her character was just that unlikable to me, but I did enjoy the twist at the end of the book when the authors informed the readers what Emma’s true identity was. But I thoroughly enjoyed Vanessa’s scheme against Emma and Richard in order to “free herself”. That was wickedly good. If you are searching for an emotional, gripping, have you on the edge of your seat read, I suggest picking up a copy of this book. You won’t regret it.
    • The writing by the authors was very good, excellent, in fact. Unfortunately, that is the only positive thing I can say about this book.The book starts off very slow. The chapters alternate between what appears to be Richard's ex-wife and his new bride to be. One chapter is in the first person and the next in the third person. The first seven chapters are just back and forth and very little is happening. No plot and no character development. This portion of the book was difficult to endure.Then the authors used a cheap gimmick to fool the reader. It turns out at about the half-way point in the book that both women are the same person. Instead of one being the future bride to be, it is the dumped wife before she married Richard, not Richard's future wife. The authors even used different names so as to confuse the reader. When the charade is revealed, the reader feels lied to and deceived.The end is really no twist or surprise as some reviewers claim. I saw it coming miles away. Why else have the subplot of the affair with her professor years ago? What other purpose would that part of the story serve?I also disliked that the narrator was unreliable. At times she was upset her husband dumped her for a younger woman. And then later on, she claimed she orchestrated his falling in love with his secretary so that he would divorce her. OK, which is it? She seemed bi-polar to me.Overall, I was disappointed with the story. It was too predictable and as a reader, I felt cheated by the cheap device the authors used to trick the reader. I would have preferred the authors told the story directly. It could have been much better.
    • Nellie is a young woman living on a shoestring budget in an upper east side apartment with her BFF Samantha. She is about to marry the man of her dreams. Richard is handsome, rich, and so...solicitous. Always wanting to protect her and meet her every need.There's Vanessa. She's seen better days. Her husband Richard left her for a younger woman, and Vanessa is having trouble accepting that. She went from living in a beautiful home and wearing designer clothes to working as a sales clerk and having to wait on the very women she once rubbed elbows with in high society. Vanessa is coping by drinking too much, and appears to be stalking her husband's new paramour.This is a first class psychological thriller. The prologue set the tone. I read it with a feeling of apprehension, knowing the writer was holding back some critical information that the reader wasn't privy to yet. What a well written book! The plot twists were mind-bending. I had to backup and re-read, or rethink, what I had just read. This is is one book I will enjoy rereading with a different understanding of what is really happening. A re-read will also allow me to put together the last piece or two of the puzzle that I'm not sure I fit correctly.I didn't have to struggle with how many stars to give this book. From beginning to end, FIVE STARS!
