Today it is my honor to be a stop on the Blog Tour For “THE WIFE BETWEEN US”
Thank you to the wonderful St. Martins Press for sending me this book for free, In exchange of an honest review.
I don’t even know where to start with this review. This book had so many twists and turns. Not once was anything on the straight and narrow. Once I had felt I had the characters figured out, I was totally blindsided. At one point, after the ending of part one, I needed to just put the book down, stop reading, and process what I had just read. I had to sleep on it, and gather my thoughts before I could read anymore. If I had continued, I probably would have been way to confused.
I really liked the main character, I liked her from the beginning of the book, all the way to the last page. The authors did such a fantastic job with character development, there was such a wide cast of characters, all whom came with traits that I both loved and hated. i had thought that I knew exactly how this book was going to end, and I was pretty disappointed that I had it figured out, and with just the turn of the page they kept it from becoming predictable. Which was so fantastic, as I read a lot of Domestic Thrillers/Suspense. So it was nice to read a book that kept me on my toes.
This was my first read of Greer’s, and Sarah’s, it is safe to say that I am a fan, and I hope to read more of their books in the future. If this book is any inclination to how well the write, that I am itching to read more.
I was happy, I think, but I wonder now if my memory is playing tricks on me. If it is giving me the gift of an illusion. We all layer them over our remembrances; the filters through which we want to see our lives.
