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! 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.…

A psychological thriller, what a way to start the new year. After this book, I wondered if my whole existence was just a delusion. I have to say, ‘The wives’ portrayed perfectly how powerful the mind is. It’s engaging, fast-paced and a heart-throbbing novel. Books like this make me more of a thriller reader.

What the book is about:

We read the book from Thursday’s POV (the main character) a successful nurse living in a condo in Seattle married to a polygamous husband. Being the second wife her day to be with the husband is every Thursday of the week, weird right? not just that, the names of the other two wives, Monday and Tuesday because that’s when the husband gets to be with them respectively. The husband is mostly a way for business in Portland where also the other two wives live and Thursday is surprisingly okay with that.

Things go down south when Thursday starts nosing around. It’s the whole dimension of, ‘ I love my husband but I need to know what his other life without me is like, till I discover the dark side of the man I love. Its a whirlwind of emotions because she’s not sure what to believe.

Why I kept reading:

Going through Thursday’s desperation pained me as a reader and I did empathize with her. This, and discovering Seth’s true character (the husband), is what made me engage and enjoy Tarryn’s writing. I would definitely recommend this book, we all need a little blood rush from a book once in a while.

Fave quote:

But the truth is that the heart’s desire is a mere current against the tide of nurture and nature. You can spend your whole life swimming against it and eventually you’ll get tired and the current of genes and upbringing will pull you under. I became a lot like her and a little less of me.

    The book is surely something, the ending was my favourite part. Delusional or not, I love a bad ass.
