The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen – Review, Giveaway





Excerpt – 

Nellie couldn’t say what woke her. But when she opened her eyes, a woman wearing her white, lacy wedding gown stood by the foot of her bed, looking down at her.

Nellie’s throat closed around a scream, and she lunged for the baseball bat leaning against her nightstand. Then her vision adjusted to the grainy dawn light and the pounding of her heart softened.

She let out a tight laugh as she realized she was safe. The illusion was merely her wedding dress, ensconced in plastic, hanging on the back of her closet door, where she’d placed it yesterday after picking it up from the bridal shop. The bodice and full skirt were stuffed with crumpled tissue to maintain the shape. Nellie collapsed back onto her pillow. When her breathing steadied, she checked the blocky blue numbers on her nightstand clock. Too early, again.

She stretched her arms overhead and reached with her left hand to turn off the alarm before it could blare, the diamond engagement ring Richard had given her feeling heavy and foreign on her finger.

Even as a child, Nellie had never been able to fall asleep easily. Her mother didn’t have the patience for drawn-out bedtime rituals, but her father would gently rub her back, spelling out sentences over the fabric of her nightgown. I love you or You’re super special, he’d write, and she would try to guess the message. Other times he’d trace patterns, circles, stars, and triangles — at least until her parents divorced and he moved out when she was nine. Then she’d lie alone in her twin bed under her pink-and-purple-striped comforter and stare at the water stain that marred her ceiling.

When she finally dozed off, she usually slept hard for a good seven or eight hours — so deeply and dreamlessly that her mother sometimes had to physically shake her to awaken her.

But following an October night in her senior year of college, that suddenly changed.



My Final Thoughts –

It wasn’t until I came to post my review that I realized the true genre of the book – suspense, thriller. I don’t normally review this genre and even though there was suspense in the book, for some reason it didn’t compute. I guess it’s been that kind of week. With that out of the way, I have to say that this book was awesome. I thought I was following the plot, and then I was confused, and I then I was even more confused! I loved it! It’s been a while since a book has kept me guessing and I enjoyed every minute of it.

The writing was fantastic through the many twists and turns of the story, right up until the end. Just reading the cover will grab you – 3 sides to a marriage, 2 authors to tell it, 1 insanely addictive novel – read between the lies! I’ve never been one to regurgitate the plot and I’m not going to start. You won’t be able to put this book down! It is truly as the description depicts!

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…
