Source: PublisherImagine 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?
WHAT DID I JUST READ.
The first 50% of this book was intriguing and I knew it was building up to something. So many different scenarios were running through my head as our main character learns more about her husband and is forced to reevaluate the nature of their relationship. Once that 50% hits, though, this book TURNS IT ON and I literally couldn't put it down until I reached that last page.
And what a last page that was. I STILL don't know what I truly believe or think actually happened. I'm not a thriller reader and am pretty new to the genre, but I honestly did not see that twist coming. Tarryn Fisher kept me on my toes for the entire book and, once again, blew me away with her talented writing.
If you want a book that will freak your mind out and make you think, you HAVE to pick up The Wives. I haven't read any book like this one and know that I never will again. Tarryn Fisher has this magic of creating such unique storylines, weaving beautiful sentences together, and forcing you to take a hard look at the characters. You have to pick this up when it comes out!
