The Wife Between Us by Christian White
Set against gainst the backdrop of an eerie island town in the dead of winter, The Wife and the Widow is a mystery/thriller told from two perspectives: Kate, a widow whose grief is compounded by what she learns about her dead husband’s secret life; and Abby, an island local whose world is turned upside down when she’s forced to confront the evidence that her husband is a murderer. But nothing on this island is quite as it seems, and only when these women come together can they discover the whole story about the men in their lives.
Brilliant and beguiling, The Wife and the Widow takes you to a cliff edge and asks the question: how well do we really know the people we love? – Goodreads
I felt The Wife and the Widow started slowly. At first I was hesitant to keep going with it. I really enjoyed Christian White’s first book, Nowhere Child which is the reason I stuck with this book. And I’m really pleased I did. When my eyes were finally opened to what was really going on in the story, I was hooked and couldn’t put it down. No spoilers here at all. You have to read this book for the twist.
