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!

This really was a beautiful book- while it started out slowly- it really was good. Glad I stuck it out and listened to the entire thing! Really worth it!!

This was a great book!! I could say more- but don’t want to give anything away 😉
When young, beautiful Cassie Jensen arrives unconscious to the intensive care ward at St. Catherine's hospital after being struck in a hit-and-run while out walking her dog, chief nurse Alice Marlowe thinks she looks familiar. She starts digging deeper into Cassie's relationships, only to discover something about her patient that she'd been keeping secret from everyone, including her devoted husband and family.
I mean- sure it was okay- but it took me awhile to get into it- the ending really wasn’t what I had hoped for! Kind of disappointed.
In The Silent Sister, Riley MacPherson has spent her entire life believing that her older sister Lisa committed suicide as a teenager. Now, over twenty years later, her father has passed away and she's in New Bern, North Carolina cleaning out his house when she finds evidence to the contrary. Lisa is alive. Alive and living under a new identity. But why exactly was she on the run all those years ago, and what secrets are being kept now?
This book wasn’t horrible . But I had previously listened to “Stolen Marriage “, By the same author. It was so much better than”The silent sister “. I just couldn’t seem to really get into this one....
In 1944, 23-year-old Tess DeMello abruptly ends her engagement to the love of her life when she marries a mysterious stranger and moves to Hickory, North Carolina, a small town struggling with racial tension and the hardships imposed by World War II. Tess' new husband, Henry Kraft, is a secretive man who often stays out all night, hides money from his new wife, and shows no interest in making love. Tess quickly realizes she's trapped in a strange and loveless marriage with no way out.
This book was really amazing!!! Well worth the listen!! Hopefully- I can find another one as good as this!
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!!
Pino Lella wants nothing to do with the war or the Nazis. He's a normal Italian teenager - obsessed with music, food, and girls - but his days of innocence are numbered. When his family home in Milan is destroyed by Allied bombs, Pino joins an underground railroad helping Jews escape over the Alps, and falls for Anna, a beautiful widow six years his senior. In an attempt to protect him, Pino's parents force him to enlist as a German soldier - a move they think will keep him out of combat.
This book was just so wonderful. Such an amazing life this young man had- heartbreaking and beautiful all at the same time.
In this stunning and provocative domestic drama about a sweet 16 birthday party that goes horribly awry, a wealthy family in San Francisco finds their picture-perfect life unraveling, their darkest secrets revealed, and their friends turned to enemies.
Would you try another book from Robyn Harding and/or Cassandra Campbell?
Don't think so! It wasn't exciting at all- pretty boring and couldn't wait for it to be done!!
What was most disappointing about Robyn Harding’s story?
What three words best describe Cassandra Campbell’s voice?
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Disappointment- this was listed under Mystery/thriller-- it was far from that!

This book was pretty good- not a whole lot of suspense and mystery- but still a good story! I couldn’t quite get used to the narrators voice- but she did a good job!
