The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen (4 out of 5) 

Two authors deserve two photos of the book they co-authored? Or the blogger got media upload happy? Guilty as charged. This book is out now, and as of Sunday, it just hit the NYT bestseller list for fiction. I really did enjoy it, although a few things stuck in my craw like a steel toed boot should have stuck in Prince Charles’ junk. This is a psychological mystery that had moments where it felt like some very strange reboot of “Fatal Attraction”, minus the fatalities. I liked it a lot, but I can understand if people didn’t love certain…shall we say…familial aspects of the story. Overall, I recommend it if you want a twisty pretzel of a story.

Nellie is a young schoolteacher who is engaged to the man of her dreams, Richard. All is well….until it isn’t. Richard’s ex Vanessa won’t let him go. She has it in her head that Richard is going to hurt Nellie the way he hurt her. But is he really dangerous? Or is Vanessa the dangerous one? There are a lot of curve balls in this book, and several big ones really tip the scales of believability. Still, they are imperative to the overall plot and finish of the book itself. Fans of Gillian Flynn’s “Gone Girl” will appreciate this page turner, brought to us by the folks at St. Martin’s Press.
