The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks, Sarah Pekkanen #Review #Mystery #PsychologicalThriller #Suspense

Title: The Wife Between Us

Author: Greer Hendricks, Sarah Pekkanen

Publisher: St Martin’s Press

Published: January 9th, 2018

Pages: 352

Rating: 4/5

The story draws the reader in from the Prologue and takes them on a journey so full of twists and turns you’re never sure what on earth might be revealed or happen – and that applies all the way through to the Epilogue! It is a psychological thriller, having a series of threads that are so tangled you’ll not sort them out till the very last page and even then you’ll wonder what you’ve missed!

It is a story of double dealing, deception, lies and love . . . . an engaging read to keep you guessing. Told from the alternating points of view of Vanessa Thompson and Emma, the younger woman Vanessa’s ex-husband is planning to marry, it is a story of stalking, manipulations and betrays. The blurb warns you not to make assumptions – and that’s certainly advice I’d give. There are times when the tangles get knotted rather than sorted, and readers may feel like cutting their way through, but persevere to discover even more intrigues and mysteries . . . .Definitely different, it truly lives up to the tagline – 

‘A Gripping Psychological Thriller with a Shocking Twist You Won’t See Coming’

I requested and received a copy of this novel, via NetGalley. This is my honest review after choosing to read it.


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.

    Definitely a well done review! And I agree with you. It was such a surprise. I can think of only one other book I’ve read recently that had me on my toes, constantly reassessing my assumptions from moment to moment, the way this one did. I just recommended it to my daughter, in fact.

      Thank you for your kind comments! It really was a very intriguing read and I suspect we tend to enjoy similar stories. I agree, constant reevaluation was needed throughout the story. I hope your daughter enjoys it, too!
