Book Review: The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen

I don't read a lot of women's thrillers but I do read a few, and this one was perfectly satisfying. I don't want to tell too much of the plot, but there's a very troubled marriage at the center of it, and it has not one giant twist, but a couple of twists (almost three) and they were the great kind--you could possibly see them coming if you were paying more attention than me (I did not see them coming and I was trying to guess!) so they didn't feel like they were out of left field, but not so obvious as to be boring and frustrating. \

The different parts of the book are also very different tonally which was a nice thing for the authors to do--one narrator's sections feel very optimistic and young and naive, another's feel very depressed, almost like she's given up, and a third part is very determined and driven. Again, don't want to say too much, but it was fun, fast, kept me riveted and guessing, and had a nicely satisfying ending.

I got this book for free from the publisher, Macmillan, which is my employer.
