Publisher's Summary

Now a New York Times top 10 best seller.

When you listen to 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.

Critic Reviews

"A fiendishly clever thriller in the vein of Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train. This one will keep you guessing." (Anita Shreve, author of The Stars are Fire)
"A twisty, mind-bending novel about marriage and betrayal. A gripping plot and fascinating characters." (Lauren Weisberger, New York Times best-selling author of The Devil Wears Prada)

Dont waste your time on this shit.
This is a book for non readers.
If you a want to listen to a good book with a similar plot buy The girl on the train.

Wow! Lots of twists

There are a few twists and turns but easy listening. I nearly missed out on the epilogue which was another twist. Loved it. My daughter recommended it. Thanks Zoe

Stunning Edge of The Seat Thriller

I absolutely loved this book and could not stop listening to it. There were so many twists none of which I anticipated and the final twist was a real surprise. This book was so well written the characters well defined and the dialogue sharp and interesting. I also enjoyed the narrator and felt she brought real life to the characters. I cannot wait for the next book from these authors.

Very Clever

This is the kind of book you just can’t stop listening to. Very gripping story from the start and then a great twist in the middle that sets the tone for the rest of the book. The twists don’t end there either! Really enjoyable!

Fairly predictable

Very similar storyline to another book; ‘the last Mrs. Parish’, but not quite as good. I found it very predictable

I expected a bit more

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No. Having read the reviews I expected a huge twist at the end. Yes there was a twist (but you have to wait until the epilogue). I was disappointed

Did Julia Whelan do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?

No great difference between all male and female character voices

Did The Wife Between Us inspire you to do anything?

NO

Any additional comments?

It was an OK read but didn't have be gripped until the end as some of the write ups suggested it would

Pretty boring!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The narrator was ok, but the story lacked any real pull. I found it very boring, wouldn't recommend.

Has The Wife Between Us put you off other books in this genre?

no

Great Listen

If anyone can guess the ending of this book by the time they've made it halfway through... you're a better detective than me!

Great listen, recommended, although I struggled with the jarring tones of the narrator at the beginning. (Too used to listening to Scottish accent narrators from my favourite authors!)

Good story, kept me listening

Where does The Wife Between Us rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I started it twice, the first time it was the American voice I thought I would struggle with but kept listening and enjoyed it a lot although some of the voices somewhat strange.

What other book might you compare The Wife Between Us to, and why?

Not sure really as I listen to so many

Which character – as performed by Julia Whelan – was your favourite?

Vanessa, have to admit that half way through I got lost with nelly and the vanessa. Must have missed that bit.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

My reaction was about the dog, Duke, hoped he was ok

Any additional comments?

Worth a listen

Gripping story - unfortunate narrator

Devoured this story over two days. The kind of book you can’t put down... or in this case, stop listening to. Never would’ve guessed the Gone Girl-esque twist in the middle. Some of the other twists were predictable but still a really gripping story. Wish they’d explained the Maureen motivations, that was left open ended. The truly unfortunate part is the choice of narrator. Her voice for Richard sounds exactly like a bad Jodie Foster impersonation and likewise her Emma is a bad Winona Ryder impersonation. I couldn’t get lost in the story whenever “Richard” spoke because I couldn’t not hear a poor Jodie Foster imitation. Wish they’d used someone else or the narrator had made a different choice there. It really put a damper on the experience overall.

Twisted in the best way...

Drew me in immediately and kept twisting constantly making me want to hear as much as possible every day, and really looking forward yo those usually boring daily drives. Secretly even taking the longer way somewhere to hear more of the story. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone.

Terrible book

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Extremely boring, pointless story line (if you'd call it a storyline).
The only 'redeeming quality' of this book was that it cured my insomnia.

So now!

I’m sure there will be a lot of women with a “me too” moment. I’m so glad I’ve never been there and hope our daughters find the real good guys.
Congratulations to the authors!
