Nina Browning is living the good life after marrying into Nashville's elite. More recently, her husband made a fortune selling his tech business, and their adored son has been accepted to Princeton. Yet sometimes the middle-class small-town girl in Nina wonders if she's strayed from the person she once was.

His road has been lonely, long, and hard, but he finally starts to relax after Lyla earns a scholarship to Windsor Academy, Nashville's most prestigious private school.

No spoilers. This book is amazing - I wish I could provide a more eloquent description but my sadly my writing is no match for Ms. Giffin’s. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time during this story filled with suspense, life lessons, heartbreak, and the pain from learning the truth about the ones we love. Worth the read and one of my favorite books of all time.

A wonderful story about good people who made tough decisions. This book has mystery, drama, love, heartbreak, and even a little suspense. My second book written by Emily Giffin and I can’t wait to listen to another one!

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.
