    The Wives, 5+ Stars

    This is, hands down, my favorite read in 2019. The Wives by Tarryn Fisher is a full length, stand alone, not a romance novel. The Wives is a daring read, the story consumed me, put me through a rollercoaster of emotions, gutted me to the core and did not put me back together. TF is a master at writing gripping stories with a never ever expected twist. Take Mud Vein or The Assistant - The Wives tops them both, and that I never had believed to be possible. I will not spoiler here, only so much, Thursday is one of Seth's three wivies it seems. Her and the other two never met each other. But when she can't let it rest, fate takes charge. The author kept me in suspense from chapter one til the end. I started reading and then simply couldn't put it down anymore. I read the whole book, cover to cover in one sitting, strongly rooting for the heroine and now I'm sitting here and simply don't know. I'm empty, out and the only thing that I know is this book will stay with me for a long time. I highly recommend The Wives, 5++ Stars.

    A tangled web...

    Have you ever read a book that has you questioning everything? Those are the types of reads I enjoy the most and Tarryn Fisher not only led me down a road of mind-boggling confusion, but she had me dying to separate truth from fiction! Being inside Thursday's mind... talk about a trip. She's married and her husband has two other wives. These women are not supposed to know anything about each other aside from the random things their husband might mention. When Thursday gets a clue about one of the other wive's identities, she can't let it go. She has to know who she is, what she does, and what she offers their husband that hasn't been provided. What she finds is far more than she expected and nothing will ever be the same again. It would be unfair to you, my fellow readers, to give any more details than this. I encourage you all to go into this story blindly. Be aware that these are unchartered waters and it's all about keeping afloat. Enjoy the journey and get lost in the secrets, lies and truths that surround these characters. Intensely captivating and profoundly enthralling, The Wives will keep you guessing right to the end!

    Ending 2019 with a 5 Star bang!

    “It’s all too perfect, I think. When things are that perfect, something is wrong.“ Wow. It’s been a long time since I sat down and read a book cover to cover without stopping but once I got on The Wives express, I couldn’t get off. The Wives is told from the voice of Thursday, wife #2. She doesn’t know anything about the other two wives, which makes this polygamy tale very unique. Things aren’t always as they seem and that unfolds very quickly in this fast paced psychological thriller. I thought I had it all figured out and then the floor dropped out from under the rollercoaster I was on. Ms. Fisher delivers a heart pounding, page turner. The writing and twists reminded me of the likes of Gone Girl or Girl on the Train. If you are a fan of psychological thrillers, I highly recommend checking out The Wives! You won’t be disappointed.

    A disturbing and delusional story

    At the beginning of this novel, three women are introduced, called initially Monday, Tuesday and Thursday; these women are seemingly in a plural marriage arrangement with Seth. The story is intriguing because of the manner in which Seth manages the three women in his life. The reader soon realizes that there's more to this story. Well into the book, it's apparent that "Thursday" is delusional and that what the reader understood earlier in the book is untrue. While the author ties up the questions by the end of the novel, I found the story to be unsettling and very disturbing; itis an unsatisfying read.

    Not my usual fare!

    I didn’t know what I was getting myself into when I decided to read this book, it’s a curveball of a story compared to my usual fare of romance books. I love romance-almost all kinds, but… to be very clear, The Wives is NOT, I repeat, NOT a romance. This is why it’s such a drastic change for me. I also haven’t read Tarryn Fisher before either, so I was going in totally blind. In saying that, it hooked me from the opening pages. I wanted to know more about these ‘wives’ and throughout the story, I do find the truth. It’s unexpected and yet… not. I thought I had it all figured out, then, changed my mind only to discover I was on the right track after all. This is a tense, suspenseful, twisty and at times emotionally vicious story. Thursday is laid bare and all her truths and fears are exposed. Is there a HEA. Well… all I can say is… this is a thriller, not a romance. It’s wicked, dark and will leave you with a whole host of emotions. Read it if you dare.
