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!

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 be willing to go to find out?

And who is his mysterious third wife?

  • Sadly, too predictable.

    By electric.amplified
    Was ok, but like a few of the other reviews have said you can easily tell where it was going.
  • Good book but

    By Person with OCD
    It was definitely worth the read but it did get slow at times but made me want to keep reading because I wanted to find out what happened.
  • Decent Book

    By hnnyontherocks
    Overall- 7/10. Not a constant page turner for me but it was pretty good. Worth a read if you like plot twists.
  • Definitely kept my attention!

  • Fascinating

    By Dejefool
    Started realllllly slooooow. It then built up speed and started going faster and faster. It then concluded into a massive wreck that was gradually peeled away and we were again reinforced with concept that women will be women.
  • Held my attention

    By Emdanben
    Wouldn’t pay full price. Worth the $2.99.
  • Trash

    By abdoobies
    There are so many avenues the author could have taken this book……idk why she chose the crazy woman. Super bored with the “psychological thrillers” these new authors are putting out.
