Book Description:
Imagine that your husband has two other wives.

You’ve never met the other wives. None of you know each other, and because of this unconventional arrangement, you can see your husband only one day a week. But you love him so much you don’t care. Or at least that’s what you’ve told yourself.

But one day, while you’re doing laundry, you find a scrap of paper in his pocket—an appointment reminder for a woman named Hannah, and you just know it’s another of the wives.

You thought you were fine with your arrangement, but you can’t help yourself: you track her down, and, under false pretenses, you strike up a friendship. Hannah has no idea who you really are. Then Hannah starts showing up to your coffee dates with telltale bruises, and you realize she’s being abused by her husband. Who, of course, is also your husband. But you’ve never known him to be violent, ever.

Who exactly is your husband, and how far would you go to find the truth? Would you risk your own life?


And who is his mysterious third wife? 








In a very classic Fisher move and style, The Wives completely messed with my head and if I'm being honest, is exactly why I pick up her stories time and time again. I know she will consistently deliver not only an outstanding story that will have me rapidly turning the pages, but one that will leave me reeling at the end. 

It will mess with you in all the right ways and then some. Leave you breathless, heart beating rapidly, and literally, on the edge of your set in suspense. In short, her books are amazing and everyone needs to read them and starting here, is a great place to do it.

Fans will both adore this and gobble it up and wish there were more. And those trying her for the first time? They are going to become fans for life and want to read more.

  8. How interesting. Why aren't the wives able to know one another is what I'm now wondering.

  11. I've never been tempted by Fisher's books... I like the sound of them but I just don't trust I'd enjoy them, does that make sense?

    I'm glad that this one hit all the right spots for you though!

    1. If you don't like unreliable narrators and books that seriously mess with you, then they may not be for you. ;)

  12. I haven't read anything by this author, but this book sounds trippy. I don't typically go for thriller/suspense, but sometimes I'm in the mood for a book that leaves me on the edge of my seat, you know? I'm adding this one to my TBR!
