Review: The Wives by Tarryn Fisher

Title: The Wives
Author: Tarryn Fisher
Published: December 2019, Graydon House
Format: ARC Paperback, 336 pages
Source: Publisher

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?

My thoughts:  I picked this gem up at BookExpo at the recommendation of the group of gals I was hanging out with and I'm so glad I did. It was one title I had been hemming and hawing at and they told me I needed to get it...well, they were right!

This book is one crazy, twisted ride and I enjoyed every second of it. It is definitely one of those reads where the less you know going into it, the better and the more you will enjoy it. It's fun, suspenseful and thrilling all wrapped up in one crazy book that is totally binge-worthy...this is the type of book that once you start reading, you are not going to want to put down.

I had my theories as to what was going on as I was reading this, but let me tell you, I never once got to where this one ended up...and that is totally ok. I love being challenged as a reader. It keeps me on my toes and this one for sure had me paying attention and flipping those pages to see what was going to happen next. You may think you know where this is heading, but trust me it goes all kinds of sideways and all I will say is just enjoy the ride.

This was my first Tarryn Fisher read and I don't know if all her books are like this or not, but I am definitely going to be checking out her backlist as I wait to see what she writes next!
