I’m thrilled to be a part of the blog tour for The Wife Between Us today!
Have you already been seeing the major buzz surrounding this book? I can’t imagine any active reader not seeing this somewhere, but in case you haven’t I’m here to ensure that you really need to add this to your must read list for 2018. The hype is real you guys, this book was SO fantastic, it’s fresh, exciting and I guarantee everyone will be raving about it in the new year AND it’s already been optioned as a movie!
There’s a reason that the blurb for this is so vague, I fear saying too much will ruin things, but I’ll do my best. Assume nothing is solid advice, this is not the book you think it is, it’s better and so much more than what it appears to be. It’s divided into three parts and the first part alternates between Nellie and Vanessa. Be patient here because the best is yet to come, I was by no means bored during this section, it was highly entertaining and addictive but when part two begins and things get flipped on their head I was beyond shocked. I’m talking jaw dropping stunned, this was so cleverly, sharply executed, it blew my mind! I had to reread several pages after some heart stopping twists just to make sure that I had indeed read correctly. I had and again, I was floored.
You know those special books that you want to immediately read again as soon as you finish because it was THAT amazing? This is that book. Even knowing what I now know wouldn’t take away from my enjoyment on a reread I don’t think, instead I think I would be more like, ahh ok I see what Hendricks and Pekkanen did here, look at this smart little breadcrumb! Outstanding characterization, an insanely twisty and complicated plot and a super addictive writing style will make this a huge book in 2018, preorder this one now and thank me later!
Overall rating: 5/5 (ALL THE STARS)
