Winter 2018 Reading Group Indie Next List
“The Wife Between Us has one of the best surprises I have ever read in a suspense novel! It helps that you become easily intrigued with the intertwined stories of a recent divorcée stuck in her downward spiral and a young woman who is so in love with her fiancé she is willing to overlook all niggling doubts. Then you discover that these wholly relatable characters, in whom you have become so invested, are not necessarily what they seem. Seamlessly moving between characters and effortlessly increasing the suspense, authors Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen have beautifully crafted a chilling tale about discovering that everyone wears a façade.”
