- Megan Bingham
Richard is the perfect husband. He's charming, intelligent, and financially successful. He makes his fiancé Nelly feel safe. But, Richard doesn't know about the strange phone calls Nelly has been receiving, with no one at the other end of the line. He doesn't know about the feeling she's been having, the feeling that she's being watched.
Vanessa is Richard's ex-wife, trying to settle into a new life that is considerably different from the luxuries she's used to. She's living with her older aunt, working in a department store, wearing old designer attire Richard bought her long ago. When she hears he's newly engaged, her life quickly begins to take a turn. She hates Richard, but she can't help the way she feels: jealousy, mistrust, and foremost, fear.
The only concrete fact the reader is given is that Vanessa must stop Nelly marrying Richard . . . but why? As the story alternates between Nelly and Vanessa, we realize something may be lying beneath the surface, something that is unreliable. Who is watching whom? Whom can we believe?
The Wife Between Us is a classic tale of obsession and love gone wrong, with a twist of deception. Like The Girl on the Train and Gone Girl, the popular but unreliable narrator is back. Who could be telling the truth in this intense love triangle? Nelly and Vanessa will seem unrelatable at first, but look closer. Who is hiding secrets? Whom is manipulating whom? You may think you know the truth, but sometimes the truth is stranger and more shocking than you can ever imagine.
