When you read this book, you will make many assumptions. You will assume you are reading about a jealous wife. You will assume she is obsessed with her replacement - a woman who is about to enter a new marriage with the man she loves. You will assume you know the anatomy of the relationships. Assume nothing. Read between the lies. Twisted and deliciously chilling, The Wife Between Us deftly explores the hidden complexities of marriage and the dangerous truths we ignore in the name of love.
The divorce has just become final, and Richard is already engaged to someone. One woman is determined to change that situation-- no matter what it takes. Soon a tangle of lies binds her life with those of Richard and his new fiancée. A tangle of lies-- that hide some dangerous truths.

I give this book a rating of 5 stars. It had me guessing the whole way through. The book was very slow in the beginning. But I had heard many good things about this book, so I kept reading. It started to get good at about 40% of the way through. It was very suspenseful and had many twists and turns. I recommend reading it.

Very very good beginning, good twist. But then it falters a little with the ending.

I like a story that grabs you right away and keeps my interest. I couldn't put this book down! Filled with twists and turns, it kept me guessing until the very end. If you enjoy a good psychological thriller, don't miss this title.

Sucked me right in and kept me intrigued in wrapping my brain around the twists. However I was a bit disappointed in how it devolved into the same old story (and I won't reveal what story that is because you should still read it!).

Quick read... recommend if you liked Gone Girl or Girl on the Train!

Interesting read. Two of the main stories are repeats. Don’t know if they are repeats of her other books or somewhere else.

This was an ok, entertaining book. By no means did it keep me riveted. There also seems to be something fundamentally off with the writing style. It just didn't flow like it should.

I love women's psychological fiction, but too often the plot is obvious. This book is great and kept me guessing until the end. Complex plot, sympathetic characters, couldn't put it down.

This was a really good read. It was well written and had great character development and a good storyline.
The only negative I would share about this book is it gets a little confusing with all the twists. Gradually introducing one twist is okay, but when you get 2 or 3 additional twists throughout, it’s sort of hard to re-program your thinking. I mean this especially considering the setting is New York City. It’s hard to believe some of the coincidences that occur in a city that size.
It is well worth engaging the time.

The twists in this book left me breathless. Just when I thought I had reached the last, I discovered I was wrong.
