welcome to my blog, and today I am going to be doing a book review. Without further a do, lets head in to my review.
The Wife between Us
A novel of suspense that explores the complexities of marriage and the dangerous truths we ignore in the name of love.
When you read this book, you will make many assumptions.
You will assume you are reading about a jealous wife and her obsession with her replacement.
You will assume you are reading about a woman about to enter a new marriage with the man she loves.
You will assume the first wife was a disaster and that the husband was well rid of her.
You will assume you know the motives, the history, the anatomy of the relationships.
Assume nothing. (From Goodreads)
This book has been in my TBR for so long and few days back, I got it from Amazon. I Was totally looking forward to reading it.
So, the story talks about marriage. The hidden and bitter truth of marriage. That does not mean the story is all about the negative sides of marriage. No, it is totally not! This is just a another faucet of marriage, in someone else’s story.
We meet the characters, Richard, Vanessa (Richard’s Ex-Wife) and Nellie his current wife (to be). Richard and Vanessa has been married for, like ten years and they get divorced under a lot of circumstances. Vanessa does not take the divorce in a good way. She becomes a constant intruder between Richard and Nellie, but she had her own reasons.
The story is full of plot twists which goes on up and down, like a crazy roller coaster. This has a greater effect on the reader. Which is like this, You settle down by understanding a certain part of the story but, it is not what you think it will be. It turns out to be something totally different. This is the aspect that keeps the reader engaged in the book. Once you start reading it, you are totally into it. The story is that intriguing. You feel that you need to know more.
I love almost all the characters, they were well-formed to keep the excitement in the story. I love the narrating style. The story is narrated to the reader from Vanessa’s point of view and Nellie’s point of view. How each of them face and see their lives, pre and post affects of marriage is well written.
The reason on why I gave 4/5 stars is, that sometimes I got a bit confused with the plot twists. But definitely, it is not a negative point. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves to read thrillers. This extravagant story filled with love, hatred, and obsession, I feel is a must read.
As the synopsis states, Assume nothing and be ready to get into this wonderful Psychological Thriller with magnificent plot twists.
Until next post,
