Book Review The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks, Sarah Pekknen
Well I liked this book, but I didn’t love it. Here we have another book trying really hard to be the next Gone Girl. Not. Even. Close.
I’ve said this before, in the wake of the mega-hit Gone Girl there has been a lot of similar ‘cat and mouse” stories with twists and whodunnit plots around relationships. None have lived up to the jaw dropping way Gillian Flynn wove the story of Gone Girl.
Same goes with The Wife Between Us. And it’s a bit unfair. Because I like the book. What I didn’t like was it was raved about as a suspense thriller in the vein of Gone Girl. So my expectations were too high.
Here we have again a story of relationships gone awry. One mate or the other just isn’t exactly what they seem to be. But who is it? And what is really going on here? Hendricks and Pekknen take you on a ride through the relationship of Vanessa, Nellie, Emma and Richard. A tangled web of lives intertwined in unimaginable ways and unraveling in even more unimaginable ways.
Maybe I’m just too happily married to the man of my dreams to be able to fathom any reality in books such as these. But perhaps there is truth here…perhaps there is psychopathic spouses, obsessive behaviors, and those who, in the name of love are blind to the truths right in front of them.
