The Wife Between Us (Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen) Book Reviews

Not so muchSeemed less a clever story and more an author trying to be clever..Score: 2/5

Couldn’t put it downThis book was captivating and addicting from the get-go. I read the entire thing in less than 24 hours. It will keep you on your toes the whole read..Score: 5/5

MehhhhThis is a very poor imitation of The Last Mrs Parrish. It drags on and on, there are so many details that you think will come back in and play into the plot and they never do. The story arc is all wrong. Don't read..Score: 1/5

3 days of reading I can never get backDon’t waste your time.Score: 1/5

Kept me guessingThoroughly enjoyed this book and all the twist and turns. The ending was surprising..Score: 4/5

The wife between usTerrible. Started off promising and entertaining, grew into something so horrendously written. The plot twists and changes of character were so flawed, and confusing. The characters almost seemed to jumble together. The dark haired woman was mentioned in the beginning, and struck me as the protagonist and the most interesting character... yet bluntly changed ship. Terrible transitions and so anti woman. The stereotypical weak woman, cowering from her abusive husband without any dignity, and no fruitful justice..Score: 1/5

Great twistThe reason I’m not giving it 5 starts it’s because I didn’t really like/hot attached to the characters. I did love the twist and the ending..Score: 4/5

Anticlimactic and predictable*SPOILERS* The book started out promising but just progressively went downhill. At times it was boring and at times predictable. Even the plot twists were dull. That being said, the thing most infuriating about this book (without spoiling too much) is the author team’s statement that Domestic Violence can be quelled by a woman making herself less attractive..Score: 1/5

Good read!Kept me on my toes. Never know what to expect. Ending kinda sucked though.Score: 3/5

GoodIt was definitely good..Score: 5/5

What a wild ride!While I was taken back by the far too abrupt revelation of the first plot twist, I was pleasantly surprised! The rest of the story just rolled on from there and I couldn’t put the book down. I enjoyed each chapter’s tone from the different perspectives. Just when I thought I’d absorbed all its goodness, the end pushed me right over the edge. Whew! Now I need an entire case of Raveneau wine haha! - Master P✨.Score: 5/5

Surprises...Quite the twister....Score: 4/5

Good readI felt like the book dragged on at times. The last 4-5 chapters make it a page-turner. I wasn’t expecting the ending. Pleasant surprise..Score: 4/5

Not a good readThe book was too wordy. I skipped several paragraphs and still followed the book. I do not see the hype and good ratings this book received. I paid for the boom so I had to finish it.Score: 1/5

The Wife Between UsSpoiler Alert! I skipped over large parts of this, as the story was too long and convoluted. Wife beater and abuser enabled by deranged sister, Richard should have been charged and stopped by Kate, Nellie/Vanessa, Emma! Stereotypical roles and anger revenge blame game end in happy ever after not believable..Score: 1/5

Very good readKeeps you guessing. Goes by fast..Score: 5/5

Twists and turnsThe things that go on behind closed doors… I enjoyed this book. Seems like a typical plot of wife being traded in for a younger model but gets interesting from there..Score: 5/5

Good enoughI absolutely love the plot twist, overall the story and the mystery is good, the author keeps surprising you and when you think you got it all figured, trust me u don't lol! But even tho im saying it's good, i just think it wasn't "smart" it was just unexpected..Score: 4/5

GoodThis was a good book. Not a great book but a good one. The first twist was AMAZING but it kinda went downhill from there for me. I finished it because I kept waiting for more huge twists….didn’t get them! It kept me interested just not invested in this book….on to the NEXT!!.Score: 3/5

A good page turnerI loved it mostly because I’m missing NYC! But it’s definitely a page turner and well done..Score: 4/5

Great book!!This is such a great book. The characters are great, the suspense keeps you reading and the twists at the end is mind blowing! From the title of the book I figured it was going to be a story about an affair and it is but it’s not your typical affair kind of book. When I thought I knew how this book was going to end there is a twist I didn’t see coming and I had to keep reading until the last page and the last word. I definitely would recommend this book to anyone. Total five thumbs up 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼 🤓❤️📚❣️❣️.Score: 5/5

Excellent!I could not put this book down! I highly recommend it!.Score: 5/5

PredictableKept my attention for the first third then it became pretty predictable..Score: 2/5

Twists!!This book starts slow and slightly dull. But if you’re questioning yourself and who to root for, you’re about to get to the plot twist. I loved this book and completely devoured it. I thought it was extremely well written. I still think about it all the time. Such a good read!.Score: 5/5

Couldn’t put it downI wasn’t sure about this book at first but after 2 chapters I was hooked..Score: 5/5

Good readThe book reads quickly and had more depth than anticipated. But the ending left me wanting a bit more..Score: 4/5

What a complex book . .As an avid book reader, I must say that this book comes really close to being a waste of my time and money. The back and forth from past to present, the character names . . you tend to forget who is who . . and the plot? It’s such a shame for a book to explain the entire story in the last chapter. Save your money..Score: 2/5

Good Book BuuuuutGood book & couldn’t put it down, but not sure how I felt about the ending🙄..Score: 5/5

Absolutely love itI was truly impressed and felt the emotions of the characters and the similarities to the situation I have been done with my life and my divorce. I don’t know what made me pick up this book but it was worth every penny..Score: 5/5

WOWGreat book 👍🏻 The plot twist was surprising and well done. I plan to follow these co-authors! Nevreader.Score: 5/5

Intricate yet PredictableThis book follows two narratives. The first one details the life of Nellie, a young woman fleeing from her troubled past getting engaged to Richard, a charming, wealthy businessman. The second one depicts the journey of Vanessa, Richard’s allegedly jealous ex-wife. While link between the two narratives is revealed about halfway through the book, it gives plenty of clues that make it quite predictable. There is steady build up towards the final twist but it falls flat due to sheer predictability. Overall, an intricately written story with a twist that you definitely see coming..Score: 3/5

Oh my gosh!I could’ve gone my whole life without reading this book. It was so disappointing! It doesn’t get good until like page 450! Super disappointing..Score: 1/5

What Twist?The only reason I stuck with this read was because the reviews led me to believe the twist justified the slow pace. It didn’t. Far more realistic fiction than thriller. No gratification whatsoever. It wasn’t a terrible leisure read, but it was a far cry from thrilling..Score: 2/5

CaptivatingI could not put this book down!!.Score: 5/5

Worth pushing throughThe interlacing of backstories in the plot is really well done. It took me a while to get hooked but I finally did about halfway through..Score: 4/5

I’m still confused..I loved reading this book. Lots of twists and turns. I feel like the ending, literally the last 2 chapters just don’t make sense/clear everything up/resolve the issues. So I googled “I don’t understand how this book ends” and it told me to read the epilogue. Obviously that was another great twist but still left me with questions..Score: 4/5

AmazingThe writing was amazing. Interesting concept and a million plot twists. I want to reread it to see all the clues.Score: 5/5

Very good read, couldn’t put down!So many twists and turns I didn’t see coming!!!.Score: 5/5

It was ok, kept me guessing until the endI liked the book, but it was confusing at times to keep up. The story lunes switched so often, and sometimes more than once during one chapter. Some of the details seemed a little done. But overall I did enjoy the book and the plot twists..Score: 3/5

Draws you in and then becomes a bit dullThe beginning of this book was fantastic. Draws the reader in and then presents a twist. However, from there I expected the same excitement and it never really came. Definitely a good book and I’m glad i read it, but a tad disappointing..Score: 4/5

Disappointed!After seeing the success of this book, and reading the synopsis on the back of the book, I was so excited to read this novel. It was a complete disappointment, and I have no idea how it got any more than 2 stars. This book drags on, and doesn’t really start moving until you are over half way through. I give two stars because the end did pick up some momentum..Score: 2/5
