The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen


Dear Fellow Reader:

Okay, I have a book for you to read. The main problem is that I don’t know how to describe the book to you.

Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen’s The Wife Between Us  will lead you down one path only to find that your basic assumptions about the plot are all wrong.  Anything I say will give away too much of the plot. I know that sounds crazy, but this book is one twist after another. On one level it is the story of Vanessa and Richard Thompson and their marriage. But wait, it is also about Nellie and Richard. But then there is Emma. And who is who?

Perhaps the best description comes from Amazon.


“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.”

So, I can’t describe the book, but I can tell you to read it. It is absorbing and you will try to figure out what is going on but then you’ll be amazed by the plot. This book is well done. It would have been hard for one person to plot out this book but to think that two people worked together on it is amazing to me. My only criticism of the book would be that I would leave off the last chapter. It “tidies” up the plot too much.

Just read it and let me know what you think. Really, I would love to know your thoughts on the plot.

Thanks for reading!
