✱✱Book Review✱✱ The Wives by Tarryn Fisher

The Wives
by Tarryn Fisher 

New York Times bestselling author Tarryn Fisher delivers a pulse-pounding, fast-paced suspense novel that will leave you breathless. A thriller you won’t be able to put down!

“You’ll have whiplash until the very end.”—New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover

Thursday’s husband, Seth, has two other wives. She’s never met them, and she doesn’t know anything about them. She agreed to this unusual arrangement because she’s so crazy about him.

But one day, she finds something. Something that tells a very different—and horrifying—story about the man she married.

What follows is one of the most twisted, shocking thrillers you’ll ever read.

You’ll have to grab a copy to find out why.

Momma Says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

First, there isn't a single likable character in this crazy, twisted, dark tale. Nope, not a single redeeming quality among them. And the beauty of it is I loved every single minute of it. For most of the book, it's varying degrees of dislike, depending on where I was and what I thought was happening, so at any given point, I might like one person less than I did at another point in the story. And such is the level of crazy this story reaches. Tarryn Fisher completely messed with my mind in all the best ways. Just go ahead and get your neck brace because this one will give you some serious whiplash. I won't go into details about any certain point or character because this is one that really needs to be read spoiler-free, just suffice it to say that every single time you think you know what's happening, the author sows a seed of doubt to have you second-guessing yourself. Or maybe that was just me? It's entirely possible, but I will say that rarely am I fooled by red herrings or crazy twists in a thriller, which I suppose comes from reading so many of them. Then along comes The Wives, and not only did it keep me guessing right up to the very end, but it held me captive. I could not put this book down. Even when I turned that last page, I had to sit and digest it all. This is what a psychological thriller is supposed to be, this is what it is supposed to do, and The Wives is not a book I'm likely to forget any time soon.
