The Wives by Tarryn Fisher

This psychological thriller had me at the edge of my seat. What was going on? I have never been so tempted to jump to the end of the book to find out the answers. It was worth the wait...

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.

My Review

5 / 5

I rarely give ratings of 5 but this one is well deserved. Thursday is her husband's 'second wife.' She secretly obsesses about the other two and even though she pretends that she is happy with this set up; she abundantly is not. Seth has set up rules which means that none of the wives interact with each other or have anything to do with their lives. Seth is the epitome of selfishness and the rules are set up to give him a carefree life where he can have his cake and eat it.

I can't say much without totally ruining the twist. The story has you second guessing everything. Thursday is the narrator and we see everything from her perspective. When she finds out something startling about her husband (Aside from the fact that he has two other wives,) then her whole world starts to crumble. Everything she believes becomes distorted. Does she really know her husband?

This book is not to be missed. I couldn't think of a single thing I disliked about this book. I will be seeking out more from Fisher!
