"A fiendishly smart cat-and-mouse thriller" New York Times Book Review
When you read this book, you will make many assumptions.
It's about a jealous wife, obsessed with her replacement.
It's about a younger woman set to marry the man she loves.
The first wife seems like a disaster; her replacement is the perfect woman.
You will assume you know the motives, the history, the anatomy of the relationships.
You will be wrong.
The Wife Between Us is the first collaboration between Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen; a gripping thriller with film rights sold to the creators of The Girl On the Train.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
On the surface, it’s a well-trodden story: a jilted, jealous wife obsesses and falls apart over her ex-husband’s predictably much-younger fiancée. But coauthors Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen smash through the clichés, springing clever surprises at every turn. Jilted wife Vanessa, her younger model Nellie and husband Richard quickly reveal themselves to be multi-dimensional and deliciously untrustworthy characters who are very different from our first impression. A tip: don’t skip the epilogue.
Hendricks, who spent more than 20 years as a book editor, joins forces with Pekkanen (The Best of Us) to create a jaw-dropping psychological thriller. Unreliable narrator Vanessa Thompson is obsessed with her ex-husband's fianc e and on the verge of becoming unhinged. She gave up everything to have a fairy tale life in Westchester with too-good-to-be-true hedge fund manager Richard. After a series of failed fertility treatments, their marriage unraveled, and Richard leaves her for a younger woman. Hendricks and Pekkanen chronicle a marriage gone wrong through the alternating accounts of the shattered Vanessa and a vibrant, younger woman named Nellie. This is not another eye-rolling story about the jealous ex-wife stalking her replacement, as readers will discover as Vanessa's motivations are revealed. Unforgettable twists lead to shocking revelations all the way through the epilogue. 250,000-copy announced first printing.
Loved the story & the twists, removed one star due to the unresolved mystery around Duke 😭
I can’t even begin with how much I enjoyed this book. I finished it in 3 days. The unravelling of the twists and the way it was structured is so well done, it keeps you hooked until the last page.
