Honest book review of The Wife Between Us
The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
"Did love or control propel him?"
The Wife Between Us is a story about secrets, love, and revenge. It is a winding tale that will keep the reader guessing the entire way through. The story follows a character named Vanessa who, throughout the story, is a complex woman. After a breakup with her husband, she is left in the shadows of his new wife... but can't seem to let it all go. As the tale goes on, it is difficult for the reader to know whom to trust.
I enjoyed the constantly shifting perspectives in this book. Just when I thought I'd figured everything out, things shifted again and again. It was unsettling to read because of this, but kept me wanting to read. I appreciated the various twists and turns up through the last page. Furthermore, the constantly shifting timeline helped keep the book engaging.
The writing was seamless; even with two authors, I couldn't tell where one's words began or ended. The description and emotion packed into the words was powerful and kept me intrigued.
I do wish the ending was a little bit stronger. The final twist was interesting but could have been executed more thoroughly.
