Traveling Sisters Review by Brenda and Norma

We read The Wife Between Us with three of our Traveling Sisters Kaceey, Susanne and Lindsay.

The Wife Between Us is an angst driven, clever, gripping, suspenseful and not your typical domestic psychological thriller novel that was an absolutely thrilling and exciting read. We went into this one thinking we were going to be prepared to look outside of the box and figure out some of those shocking twists. We had our game on and we were on the lookout for those clues that were so brilliantly executed with only Norma picking up on one right from the start. Brenda should have too!

It started off a bit slow as we were waiting to pick up on those oh so subtle clues, and the questions started building up for us. We thought we were ready and then the first shocking and unforgettable twist came and we all were left speechless with only one word to say, “WOW”. Well except for Norma who was feeling pretty proud of yourself for picking up on the clue for that one. After that initial shock we started questioning how the authors were going to pull it off with this twisty plot and we really enjoyed the discussion that brought on.

Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen have done such a fantastic job here with this complicated, complex and compelling storyline, creating a fascinating unreliable character here with Vanessa. We questioned her motives, her history and her husband and their relationship. We didn’t know who to trust and we tried not to make assumptions and that left us questioning everyone. The authors do such a great job with this unique and riveting novel, cleverly revealing the right pieces of the puzzle to us at the right time which were so brilliantly delivered. Allowing us to only see those pieces after reading it and leaving us discussing just how cleverly plotted this story really was.

We all found this to be a fun, fast-paced, exciting, enjoyable and a compelling read and we all absolutely loved this reading experience! That ending was absolutely phenomenal and Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen we all agree that you both definitely pulled it off! Highly recommend!!

Thank you to NetGalley, St. Martin’s Press and Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen for an ARC of this novel to read and review.

Kaceey’s Review

4.5*
When a book can create a buzz…when my sense of anxiety notches up! I know I’ve come across a great read!

This fantastic new release by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen did just that for me! With a constant aura of anticipation and unease, (Just what we love when reading a thriller!) I breezed through the pages.

I was reminded partially through, (thank you Brenda!) that a wicked twist lay ahead. Yet even with a heads-up, I never saw it coming! Whaaat??!! And bonus…there were plenty more to come!

A fantastic, mind-bending thriller dealing with… marriage, divorce and the other woman (not necessarily in that order!). And well, I’ll just stop there! I won’t keep rattling on and risk giving anything away. Trust me, the less you know going in, the more you’ll enjoy this one!
And be forewarned – you’ll want to clear your schedule. Once you start, you won’t want to put this one down! A great collaboration from Ms. Hendricks and Ms. Pekkanen. An exciting new writing duo in the thriller arena. Can’t wait for their next release!!

Thank you to NetGalley, St. Martin’s Press and Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen for an ARC of this novel to read and review.

Susanne’s Review

4.5 Stars* (rounded up).

Chilling and Thrilling! It will make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. Take notice friends. This is the next best seller.

“The Wife Between Us” is compelling and absolutely riveting. This is the story of Vanessa, Richard and Nellie, whom you think you know oh so well, but the truth is, no one is ever who you think they are. And what I will tell you is that this book will have you looking over your shoulder, questioning everything – including yourselves.

I was freaked out from the start. Breathless, uncomfortable and a little afraid. My stomach was in knots, I was gripped in fear and yet I was unable to stop. I was like a mouse with a piece of cheese. I couldn’t get enough of the characters, especially of Vanessa, her angst, her needs and her fears. And just like the mouse, I got trapped. Trapped in the mystery. Trapped in the most idiosyncratic read ever. Loving every second of it.

“The Wife Between Us” by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen is a phenomenal psychological thriller. It will be the must read thriller of 2018. It was addictive and completely captivating. The writing was brilliant and the fact that two authors wrote this together and did so seamlessly is one heck of a feat.

Thank you to NetGalley, St. Martin’s Press and Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen for an ARC of this novel in exchange for an honest review.

Lindsay’s Review

3.5 stars!

This was a twisty and suspenseful thriller that had my jaw-dropping from start to finish.

The authors, Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanan, did a fantastic job creating an intriguing plot with many clever and shocking twists and turns. I loved the element of surprise that hit me a few times throughout the story – I was caught completely off guard!  Fantastic job to these authors for building up the suspense and presenting some completely unexpected and mind-blowing cliffhangers at the end of
each section!

Overall, I enjoyed this novel, but did find some parts became slightly repetitive and the pace dragged at a few points. I enjoyed and felt satisfied with the ending, though I wasn’t ‘wowed’ by it. I did find some of the dialogue and characters’ thoughts seemed unnatural.

This unique and entertaining story was a quick and easy read that I breezed through with my Traveling Sisters.

A big thank you to NetGalley, St. Martin’s Press and the authors, Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanan, for providing an ARC in exchange for an honest review!
