About this ebook

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 realise 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 go to find the truth? Would you risk your own life?

And who is his mysterious third wife?

Wow...just wowza...this book!! Ms. Fisher is gonna take you down a deep, dark rabbit hole and won't let you see the light until she is ready to let you go.
The Wives takes you on a dark and twisty tale. What's reality, what's delusions, what is love and what is hate? So many questions and the answers are gonna floor you!
Thursday is the central character of this story, she is on the search for the truth in her world. But to find that truth, she has to go through so, so much!
Ms. Fisher has a magic to her words! I couldn't put this story down once I started. I went through a whole gamut of emotions when reading this! With every character, I could find a reason to admire them and then hate them! I was second-guessing myself as I was reading this and that was amazing to me! Who was the victim? Who was the perpetrator? Who was the hero/heroine? Even at the end, I was wondering who to really cheer for in this story.
This is the definition of a thriller! This story is going to take your mind on a wild ride and you are going to need a minute or a day when you finish to really let the amazingness of this story to settle in!
Bravo Ms. Fisher!

What on earth did I just read??? My mind as well as my heart were officially confused as to what was happening....I couldn’t put this book down! The further I read the more my heart pounded! Best way to read this story, going in blind! It is such a thrill of a thriller! Honestly wasn’t sure which character to believe and then Id think ‘what is going on here?’ I genuinely got hooked in the storyline that grabbed my attention from the start and when it ended??!! What in the what???? As I read, I really felt like this was one of those midday movies that play with your mind! I kid you not! It was just.....yep not too sure to be quite honest! The author has written a book that will no doubt stick in your mind as something you don’t quite expect! Netgalley ARC received.
