When you listen to this audiobook, you will make many assumptions. You will assume you are listening to a story about a jealous ex-wife. You will assume she is obsessed with her replacement - a beautiful, younger woman who is about to marry the man they both love. You will assume you know the anatomy of this tangled love triangle. Assume nothing. Twisted and deliciously chilling, The Wife Between Us exposes the secret complexities of an enviable marriage - and the dangerous truths we ignore in the name of love.

I am not sure why this book got such great reviews- it really wasn’t that good.
And the narrators voice when she was Richard was so annoying I almost had to stop listening. What a waste of a credit!

Anna Fox lives alone - a recluse in her New York City home, unable to venture outside. She spends her day drinking wine (maybe too much), watching old movies, recalling happier times...and spying on her neighbors. Then the Russells move into the house across the way: a father, mother, their teenaged son. The perfect family. But when Anna, gazing out her window one night, sees something she shouldn't, her world begins to crumble. And its shocking secrets are laid bare.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

This just wasn't that good! I read that some compared this to "The Girl on the train". It isn't even in the same ballpark! Way to much fluff in this book too... I don't need a description of every little thing. And the narrator was far to dramatic!

Would you be willing to try another one of Ann Marie Lee’s performances?

No! She is way too over the top!!
