Elle Edwards, who has been told she's a product of her mother's sinful mistake, has never gone to school, never met a teenager her own age, never even been allowed off of her grandparents' property. Convinced that their granddaughter is infected with evil, Myra and Prescott Edwards believe that only the harshest child-rearing methods will prevent Elle from becoming an instrument of the devil.

It starts with a simple favor - an ordinary kindness mothers do for one another. When her best friend, Emily, asks Stephanie to pick up her son, Nicky, after school, she happily says yes. Nicky and her son, Miles, are classmates and best friends, and the five-year-olds love being together - just like she and Emily. A widow and stay-at-home mommy blogger living in woodsy suburban Connecticut, Stephanie was lonely until she met Emily, a sophisticated PR executive whose job in Manhattan demands so much of her time. But Emily doesn't come back.

I read all of the negative reviws about this book and decided that I would read it anyway. I was glad that I did but the problem with this book was that it took forever to start. I loved it when we started hearing from Emily in this book because even though she wasn't a good person in this book she was my absolute favorite. I loved how cunning she was and how it all ended. Emily was the only interesting person in this book. Stephanie was so annoying that I wanted to just punch something(namely Stephanie if it was at all possible) I'm pretty sure Stephanie was supposed to be that annoying but it really bothered me. overall I did enjoy this book although it did take time to start. but definitely something I would recommend

Tamra never dreamed she would marry someone like Mike Mitchell: handsome, rich, a wonderful husband...until she finds out that Mike is having an affair. But Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, and Mike Mitchell should have remembered that before he made a fool of her. Because Tamra knows something about Mike. Something he did. Something evil. And she was prepared to carry the secret to her grave. Not anymore.

I read the book first because I was reading a sample and couldn't stop. I love audible because I can re-read or re listen and see what I may have missed. I really enjoyed this book and the narrator is so good. the suprise twist was a little predictable so it wasn't a huge suprise. but other than that thia book was really good

It was 1969, and all the rules were changing, when Betty, a woefully single French teacher on Long Island, met the handsome but edgy new teacher at her school -- a hippie just back from Woodstock. His vitality opened up a new world to her, but when they married his rages turned against her, and often ended with physical violence. Like millions of women who discover they've married an abusive man, Betty was forced to make daily decisions to suppress her feelings or risk confrontation, to keep it secret or report, and ultimately, to live with it or leave. Part gripping story, part warm-hearted look at the '70s, and part therapeutic journey.

it's rare that I find a book on here that I don't like and this was just more of the same. reading about everything that she went through and how hard it was for her to leave made me both sad and angry. sad because she didn't think she could leave, and angry because he really didn't think he was doing anything wrong. this is a book I would totally recommend. Don't pass by this book definitely read it

I was a little nervous about reading this book because I had seen the movie first and I have to say I did like the movie, but it really wasn't that great and i was concerned that watching the movie would ruin the the book for me.But the reviews on this book were so good that I had to listen to it. I was so glad that I did first of all this book was not a whole lot like the movie. sure they had Jonas the main character and they used his experience with the sub and they included the giant shark, But the similarities stooped there they even changed names in that movie so I had a completely different experience reading the book this book was so good. it did start out a little slow but that is to be expected but when the action started it didn't stop. this book took you all over and the it had the most amazing ending that i wont ruin. I really enjoyed this book so much it made me go on to read all the ones that came after it. I am about to start book six the last book in this series and I will be very upset when I do finish because I really enjoyed it. So the moral of this story is when people are making movie adaptations of these books stick as close to the story line as possible because there is a reason these books did so well

this book was so well written, I was hooked by the first few words. I saw the movie first but decided I had to read the book. The book was definitely better than the movie who's is usually how it go's but I can say that after reading the book I understood the movie better. I really enjoyed this book and will be reading it again

I saw the movie and really enjoyed it> I never knew that there was a book I accidently came across it and I loved it. I felt that there was so much more to the book. even though I saw the movie., the book was still able to surprise me because of the twists and turns that they weren't able to put in the movie. I have to say that I enjoyed it so much more then the movie

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 read a few reviews that said this book wasn't very good. I started to get worried because I was really excited to check it out Most people said this book was predictable. I have to say that when I started reading I was starting to agree
there were three major twists and the first one I am sorry to say I saw coming so I was worried I would be predictable. but as I read it became Less predictable. the last two major twists I did not see coming.it really shocked me . the way this book ends is nowhere near where it began. I loved this book and plan to read it again. like I said some of the reviews were really concerning but I was glad I read it. so don't pay to much attention to the reviews and just decide for yourself if you want to read this book. I did and was very happy with that decision
