The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen


Don't marry Richard...you don't know what you are getting yourself into.

Vanessa was Richard's first wife and wanted to warn her replacement to not marry Richard. Vanessa also had some mental issues or maybe she didn’t and was made to think she did.

The entire book was a guess what or guess who and then it all became changed with a new guess what or guess who.

THE WIFE BETWEEN US switches back and forth in time with all the characters.  The book gives hints about the main issue, the husband, and his possessiveness, but it is very subtle.

THE WIFE BETWEEN US was confusing but a good confusing because the authors wanted it that way….brilliant tactic!!


The ending had me saying HMMMMM, but the only way to experience the book is to make sure you read it yourself and form your own opinion.  I don't think anyone can tell you what to think or surmise.  4/5

This book was given to me free of charge and without compensation by the publisher in return for an honest review.

  3. There are so many books like this one out there. I don't think in real life an ex would try to warn the new love interest but in books it seems to happen all the time. It makes for some fun reading if you can put the doubt aside.

    1. LOL...I'm sure an ex wouldn't do that in real life, but it made for a good story with twists.

  9. I read this book, too, and I had the same reaction to it as you did.

    Although it 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 won an ARC of this book from St. Martin's Press.

    1. Agreed...it was good yet confusing.

      I may just have re-read a few parts, but then again I will just leave it. I normally do not re-read. :)

  10. I was looking through my bookshelf and realized I had picked this up at BookExpo last year. Now I want to read it after I'm seeing it all over the blogsphere and after reading your review.
