The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen

The Wife Between Us - Greer Hendricks, Sarah Pekkanen

This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.

I was completely underwhelmed by this book. I saw some really positive reviews for this book so I decided to read it myself because I love good books. I wanted to love this book as much as other readers but it just wasn't meant to be. I honestly don't see what all of the fuss is about. There were a few twists but nothing that really blew me away or anything. I am being really generous with my three star rating with this one.

This is one of those books that is going to be best to go in as blindly as possible. The less you know about the book the better your chances of enjoying it. As you can probably guess from the title, this book is about marriage. We meet an ex-wife and a soon to be wife and get to know them a bit. 

Nothing about this book ever grabbed me. I didn't feel much for any of the characters and I never felt that compulsion to keep turning pages so that I could find out what would happen next. It was a book that I could set aside if I had something else to do but it wasn't painful to read either. It was just kind of average. There are some big twists in the book but I honestly didn't find them all that shocking. By the time the first big twist is revealed, I just didn't really care all that much. 

I feel like this is a book that received more hype than it deserves. Then again, there are some readers that absolutely love this book. I won't be actively recommending this book to others but wouldn't discourage anyone from reading it either. 

I received an advanced reader edition of this book from St. Martin's Press via NetGalley.

Initial Thoughts
I am a bit underwhelmed by this one. I have seen so many 5 star reviews for this book so I guess I am in the minority but I really don't see what the fuss is all about. The first 40% of the book was really pretty boring for me. Then there were a few twists but nothing that really blew me away. It was an okay read but nothing more.
