    I read this book a few months back and it was everything I've been waiting for from Tarryn Fisher. Not that she hasn't delivered before, but she OVER delivered with this one. About a day after I read it, my mind was still numb. I needed a distraction, so I asked one of my many sons, "Do you know of any apps that can distract me from this callipygian book I just read?" He said, "TikTok. It's great." I already had a TikTok account, but it's been a couple of years since I logged on.

It's been four months since I read The Wives. This book was the last book I read. I'm not sure I'll ever read another one again because of TikTok. Last night I saw a video of a woman with a split tongue and she was using the two halves of her tongue to clap to the song, "If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands." Except she was using her tongue to do the "clap clap" part instead of her hands. Did you know if you have your tongue split in half that it becomes TWO tongues that you control separately? I would have never known that if it weren't for TikTok. And if it weren't for The Wives, I would have never logged onto TikTok to begin with. Five stars. Or ten, if you split them in half.

Dear God, it’s me, not Margaret, oh hell no Chelsea( sorry using the `hell` word), this is Nilufer.( you may call me Nily shortly) I honesty, truly, genuinely ask you because I didn’t find the answer. WTF that I just read?( sorry for my language, I already close my mouth but unfortunately my fingers are still functioning) This book is devilish, surprising, a greatest brain exercise( you feel like you competed at a 24 hours long mathematics marathon after you finished, let me call this “deep fry brain cell dish”) I started to question everything after I finished this book. Where am I? Who I am married with? Am I married? Is this a dream? Oh, stop it! Tarryn Fisher and her evil twin ColHo are so dangerous women for our intellectual minds. Because they can write tear-jerker, pant-melting, heart-breaking, edgy, incredible romances and they can also write mind-bending, twisty thrillers. ( It took me two days to close my mouth and wipe out the shock expression from my face after reading the “ Verity”) They’re definitely dark queens! What I most liked about this book: -Hooked me up from the beginning and glued to my hands, my mind! Definitely unputdownable and fast-paced, exciting, perceptive, brilliantly written! And the remarkable ending! Oh this book shows us karma may be merciless, bitchy but also the fairest friend! What I most hated about this book: UNCONNECTION WITH THE HEROINE: Yes, the heroine you’ve dreamed of cannot be reached at this moment. Try again for another book! One of the wives and also our heroine Thursday( starting from the name my rejection process has already begun) accepts Seth’s polygamy offer including not to know his other wives’ names and for any other reason never ever to get connect with them. How a woman accept an offer like this and patiently waits for her husband spending only one day in a week with her? You’re hearing the alarm bells! That’s the first warning about the heroine and it’s not the last one! She finds out the other wives and realizes that her lovely and legal husband Seth has some anger management issues! So not only Thursday, but also we got lost! Who’s telling the truth? Thursday? Regina ( first wife who claims she already divorced Seth and they’re not seeing each other), Hannah( pregnant, she has doubts about Seth’s psychological issues who comes from a family reminds us of Mansons) and Seth who acts like decent guy suffering from Thursday’s delusional behaviors. Well, everybody lies in this book. It’s confusing, puzzling, perplexing, mind-hurting and it’s still a very good-read! Polygamy idea and unlikeable heroine theme are about to stop me to read this book and I was on the edge of giving three stars but I’m happy to keep on reading in the love of Tarryn Fisher. Thanks to her, I didn’t get disappointed! Many special thanks to Graydon House and NetGalley for sending me this mind-bending and amazing ARC COPY in exchange my honest review!

    2 1/2 stars. Very fast-paced, compulsively-readable and, ultimately, ridiculous. I'm not even sure how to organize my thoughts on this book. Did I enjoy it? I must have. I didn't want to tear my eyes away from the page. I felt like I needed to know what was going on. It was, I guess, that special kind of deliciously trashy beach read that is ridiculous, unbelievable, and yet impossible to put down. 2 1/2 stars it is then. It's told from the point of view of a woman whose husband has two other 2 1/2 stars. Very fast-paced, compulsively-readable and, ultimately, ridiculous. I'm not even sure how to organize my thoughts on this book. Did I enjoy it? I must have. I didn't want to tear my eyes away from the page. I felt like I needed to know what was going on. It was, I guess, that special kind of deliciously trashy beach read that is ridiculous, unbelievable, and yet impossible to put down. 2 1/2 stars it is then. It's told from the point of view of a woman whose husband has two other wives. Part of the agreement they have is that she doesn't meet or attempt to make any kind of contact with the other wives. It's not her idea of a perfect marriage, but whose is-- right? She still has a gorgeous and loving husband who comes home to her once a week. The rest of the time... well, she can just pretend he's working away from home. The secrecy of this situation seemed like an absolute nightmare from the start. I can totally get on board with consensual polyamory - each to their own - but how anyone could trust a partner who kept a whole two thirds of their life hidden away was beyond my comprehension. As I would expect in such a situation, she is curious about the other two wives. When one day she finds a scrap of paper in her husband's pocket with a woman's name on it, she knows she can't let it go. So she seeks out "Hannah" and becomes her friend, never revealing her true identity. But something is not right. Hannah's husband - her husband - seems to be leaving bruises on Hannah's arms. What follows this discovery is a race to find out who her husband really is, exactly what lies he's been telling, and the identity of the third wife, all before he realizes she's on to him. There is a point somewhere in the middle of the book where something happens and this story gets turned completely upside down. I'm still unsure how I feel about it. I think it was this that changed the book from a genuinely compelling thriller to something more silly and worthy of the occasional eye roll. After this point, the book got a bit wacky, full of twists that were obvious or fell flat. MAJOR SPOILER-- (view spoiler)[I think I ultimately disliked that everything became entwined with Thursday’s delusions. Anything could happen, we could be led to think anything and believe in any number of red herrings, and the author didn’t have to worry about tying up loose ends because everything unexplained could be dismissed as one of her delusions. (hide spoiler)] Just be aware: those sensitive to discussion of miscarriage and infertility may find this upsetting. Facebook | Instagram

    "It’s all too perfect, I think. When things are that perfect, something is wrong." Tarryn Fisher is and always will be one of my all time favourite authors because of The Opportunist. Whilst I am a big fan of her romance novels, The Wives was my first attempt at reading one of her psychological thrillers. This review is going to be slightly problematic because this book was both a mindfuck and a clusterfuck at the same time. _______________ Dark and Unwavering My first tip for this book would "It’s all too perfect, I think. When things are that perfect, something is wrong." Tarryn Fisher is and always will be one of my all time favourite authors because of The Opportunist. Whilst I am a big fan of her romance novels, The Wives was my first attempt at reading one of her psychological thrillers. This review is going to be slightly problematic because this book was both a mindfuck and a clusterfuck at the same time. _______________ Dark and Unwavering My first tip for this book would be to dive in not knowing much. Simply because everything hits ten times harder that way. The plot of TW is quite simple on the surface level, but as each chapter unfolds, you start questioning and doubting nearly every character. The deeper I fell into this story, the darker it became, the more I started feeling uncomfortable and uneasy. It pulled me in right from the start and every time I put it down, I wanted to pick it back up again. Fisher portrays a complex commentary on the starving feeling of jealousy and envy through this novel that is unparalleled with anything I have ever read before. The storyline dealt with topics such as polygamy, manipulation, insecurities and abuse (not necessarily in that order). It was refreshing to see a different type of suspense, wherein the story grabs you with the obvious more than the mystery. I struggled with the writing at the start, I found the structure to be fragmented and the flow, jarring. It was a lot of "this then I did that then this..." but I soon adapted to it to find that it surprisingly suited the story very well. "Something’s going on and I feel like I’m the only person in this marriage who doesn’t know what." The main reason I'm giving this 3 stars is mainly because the latter end of the book lost me slightly. I felt like the twist could have been executed and developed better. The angle it took became very dysfunctional and it felt like the story was trying to squeeze the mindfuck towel dry. So much so that it soon became a clusterfuck. It felt like I was trying to keep up with every characters arc and story involvement that I was lost in the crowd. I also detached from our heroine, Thursday quite often. She was a very dichotomous character and throughout the story, I wanted her to stand up to her opinions and beliefs but she kept letting others treat her badly. There were times where she did in fact come through and push against the "doormat" stereotype but it was always met with a contradiction in her personality. I do recommend this to anyone that wants to dip their toes into psychological thrillers, or even the regular readers in the genre. I would not throw caution to the wind however because this story can get very dark and gritty at the best of times. It hurt me at times because I empathized with Thursday's plight to its core, I found myself rooting for her situation even though I had my conflicts with her. I wish I could say that the ending left me completley satisfied but I felt like it was a very rushed ending and the story only unfolded in the last 20%. Beyond this, I enjoyed myself and definitely need a light read now.

    what. the fuck. I can’t trust Goodreads reviews anymore because how is this a 4 starred book??!! IM— I think this is another instance where the most of the people who’ve read from this author— are new to the thriller genre and absolutely love it. Not meeeeee. This book’s plot was ridiculous; right to the climax—ridiculous to the point where it’s non-believable. Actually most thrillers are non-believable but there’s a groundness to it, a reality check of plausible believability. But not here, folks. what. the fuck.

Too many what ifs and whys and whats and oh nos. Don’t be fooled. Like I was. Haha....hA....oh man. Not gonna lie, first half of the book got me intrigued and the writing style is extremely fast paced and engaging but....BUT— It all just got all downhill from there for me. The rest of this book got extremely cliche and predictable. And then I saw the twist and I was hoping (please), that this twist wasn’t going to be the case....but oh boy. It was. Our lead girl is also very contradicting herself. She’d realize something wrong and shady but then later either a) brush it off and make up excuses for it or b) forget all that monologuing and deep though contemplating on chapter 15 to do the opposite on chapter 20. But it all makes sense because...... I canNOT stand when mental illness is used as a twist/plot device. It’s so cheap not to mention degrading and problematic. And that ending??? Go ahead. ”Help yourself.” Who knows, you might like it. 1 STAR for writing. It’s 5 AM as I’m writing this review so time to sleep for another 72 hours and purge my brain of this mess.

He treats her like gold and is the perfect husband. The only flaw is that Seth happens to have two other wives. Thursday is the second wife and only gets to see Seth on Thursdays (yes, her name matches the day of the week she sees her husband). She endures this arrangement to be with the man she loves. However, when Thursday begins digging for information on Seth’s other two wives, she is led down a dangerous rabbit hole forcing her to accept some dark truths about her perfect marriage. I am fascinated by polygamy and couldn’t wait to see how Thursday and Seth’s marriage worked. Unfortunately, I was disappointed as The Wives focuses more on a messed up relationship than polygamy. Thursday is an intriguingly unreliable narrator. One must wonder why a woman would subject herself to marrying a man who has two other wives. Her voice goes from unreliable to crazy (not a good crazy) and that is where this book lost me. I read The Wives over the course of a day. It is easy to read, and Thursday and Seth’s marriage is far from conventional, which made me want to know the dark details hiding behind Thursday’s view of perfection. The first half was addictive, but it took a dive in the second where it becomes unbelievable and chaotic. There are some plot holes in the first half, but they might have been intentional. In the second half, more and more plot holes emerge and some unbelievable twists are revealed turning this book into a convoluted mess. I would rate the first half of The Wives 4 stars. Part two gets 2 stars, making this a 3 star read for me. It’s good for some unbelievable entertainment but too messy to make an impact as an impressive thriller.

"How have I become this Confessions Of A Twisted Mind- "When things are that perfect, something is wrong." TF is a self-confessed "Swirler of Emotions" and the longer the swirl, the tougher it becomes to separate one from the rest. Much like Thursday, whose life is spinning so fast, that events, accidents, emotions and reality is blurring right in front of her eyes. She's in a consensual relationship with a polygamist and totally acceptable of the Other Two Wives called Monday and Tuesday. "How have I become this docile person, living for Thursdays and the love of a man who divides himself so thinly among three women?" Typical of TF to pick a controversial and unrelatable topic for majority of readers and yet keep us engrossed till the very end. She's a master of creating layered stories with a seemingly placid surface but her loyal readers can always expect the roiling emotions which swallow you whole in its vortex. Insidious and deceptive, it's a smoke and mirrors story. Secretive clues are scattered like bread crumbs and deciphering them is a full book job. I believe Traci Finlay was TF's sounding board for this particular book and Traci is as mindfuck as they come. And I'd love to see this combo in the near future collaborating on a novel Back to this one, TF created a strong female protagonist but her psyche has a wrinkle, a fold somewhere deep down. Her reality is askew and vision distorted due to her deep craving for Seth's love and attention. Jealousy giving her a heartburn & she is on a mission to put faces to the names. As they say- Curiosity killed the cat, things start to go horribly wrong for her as she descends the ladder to the heart of the truth and then for the readers as they watch her go down the unfathomable sinkhole Throughout the entire story, my heart was pounding hard. I was right next to Thursday in the car, running around Portland and Seattle. I was shocked at what she finds, astounded at what was happening around her, I was swept away by the maelstrom that hits her life and my soul was in tatters as her house crumpled. The ending was a bit anti- climatic for me.I had figured out the gist of it but was in complete denial, much like Thursday herself. Seth was always under my microscope and I monitored his movements acutely. The surprise twist just comes out of left and wollops me in the face "It was like being halfway down a guy’s pants when he told you he was really a woman." The thrill never wanes, the dread never diminishes and pulse never slows down. The first chapter tells you it's going to be a disaster of epic proportions, but a train-wreck is always morbidly fascinating to watch.....and so was reading this book I'm waiting eagerly for the "crawlspace" to go hide in next😁 4.5 stars for Loony Toon In Tonker Town #BookBistroBlogApproved Follow me on: BookBistroBlog@gmail.com https://Twitter.com/BookBistro www.instagram.com/BookBistroBlog https://bookbistroblogger.blogspot.com/ https://www.facebook.com/groups/BookB...

    3.5 stars.... I really, really wanted to read this book! I had heard so much about it. I got declined for an ARC so what did I do? I ran out and bought it the second I could, and devoured it! So I really loved it...until I did not. This was a really interesting, intriguing, kind of car wreck ..can't look away book, until about the 75% point and then I was like what?! Then it just got too weird, even for me. I can take weird, trust me. So most of this story is from Thursday's POV. Thursday is wife 3.5 stars.... I really, really wanted to read this book!

This was a really interesting, intriguing, kind of car wreck ..can't look away book, until about the 75% point and then I was like what?! Then it just got too weird, even for me. I can take weird, trust me. So most of this story is from Thursday's POV. Thursday is wife #2. I really like Thursday, so much so that I want to take her aside and say "look girl you are way too good for this guy, go find someone else, that perhaps I don't know, will be just YOUR husband and not a husband to three women." When I found out that Seth- is a guy that liked to say " I do" way too much, well I didn't like him, at all! I found myself getting madder and madder at Seth the more I found out. The kicker is the "wives" apparently refer to themselves by the day of the week. Seth spends Monday with his pregnant, young wife so her name is Monday. Then he spends Tuesday with his first wife, so you can guess what her name is. Then there is our girl Thursday....this made me furious!! Okay so there was a big weird twist at the end and I must admit the author did a fantastic job at getting me with it. I just didn't care for the ending and it made the whole book fall flat for me. Weirdness overload shall we say. That being said, this book has some fantastic 5 and 4 stars reviews, so give it a try! It is all about your personal take on it all.

    This book surprised me. A LOT. The first half of it I was sure I was going to LOVE IT, but then... shit happens, and I didn't like the direction it took. But I will say this: I absolutely adore Tarryn's way with words. Her writing only improves with every book!

    Compulsively readable, mind distorting, & ultimately a train wreck!

THE WIVES by TARRYN FISHER is an engaging, fast-paced, dark, gritty, and twisty thriller that had quite the bizarre, intriguing and original premise to it. I was immediately sucked into the story and could not put this book down for the first half of the story. The first half was absolutely unputdownable and had my full attention and then around the 50% mark my attention started to wane a little bit and then well the ending happened, which I wasn’t all that fond of. I really have this pet-peeve when I feel like certain aspects of the story is deliberately omitted for shock value purposes rather than well-layering and guiding us there. There were also some aspects to the story that really hit a nerve and I thought the author shouldn’t have used certain themes as plot devices and points. I could have totally missed this but I think even the character’s name was deliberately omitted in the beginning to use as a plot device. I definitely empathize with our main character here and was definitely rooting for her for the most part anyway, even though I had a few issues with her actions and reactions. At times I totally felt for her and at other times I was totally flabbergasted by her. It was definitely one tumultuous, wacky and wild ride! Expected on Sale Date: December 30, 2019 This was a Traveling Sisters read that I read in our group. Norma’s Stats: Cover: Suspenseful, vanishing, mysterious, intriguing, and a great representation to storyline. I definitely find this cover quite appealing! Title: A simple, intriguing, effective, and fitting representation to storyline. Writing/Prose: Easy to follow, entertaining, suspenseful, engaging and compulsively readable. Plot: Dark, twisted, disturbing, uncomfortable, edgy, bizarre, interesting, fast-paced, twisty, entertaining, and ultimately ridiculous. Ending: An unsatisfying twist ending. I think the ending was a little over the top and could have been better executed and developed. I think it’s going to be a case of you either love it or hate it! I’d love to hear what camp you ended up in!! Overall: I don’t think this was a terrible book by no means and for the most part it was an absolutely unputdownable gripping read. Go ahead and take this one for a ride! Hopefully it’s a wild and thrilling one for you right up until the very end!! Thank you so much to Harlequin / Graydon House for kindly sending me a copy of this book!

Yes thingy. and you know what? you don't have to be Einstein or John Fish to figure that out. and once you figure that out .... Congratulations Again!!!! you have now figured out the WHOLE BOOK! offffff what is happening to my English. ok now characters and plot Thursday, our beloved (not mine tho) heroine, fell in love with this married sex maniac named Seth. and then our lovely heroine and Seth eventually get married, after Seth divorces his first wife Regina. so why did he marry Thursday? becoz he wanted babies TADAAA!!! you see Regina once miscarried and then she went on total birth control, Seth however wanted his own babies so after he seduced Thursday into his life, he semi-dumped his first wife. and you might be thinking didn't Thursday question his rudeness? well yes she did, but you see, this assshit came up with a lame excuse and said " well my dad is a polygamist, so i have a legit reason to be one as well" to which Thursday went: but because Seth and Thursday are the most decent human beings in The United States of America they went 'lets not completely break up with the first wife', Seth can visit her every week and keep any type of contact with her dingdingding fast-forward many stupid years, Thurs (i'm nicknaming her that's it) got pregnant , and then miscarried, went through a hysterectomy and couldn't have babies at all. Seth was not happy with this and went -- oh you know where this is going don't you?! and went "so Thurs, now that you're infertile, i guess i have to get a new wife now, oh but don't worry!! you can still be my wife, we won't divorce" and thus Seth got married to another mega idiot named Hannah and i have no fucking idea how they managed to do this in the USA these days whelp so hannah gets preggers eventually, which technically hurts Thurs emotionally (but she's happy for all of them cuz you know, the protagonist has to be that one that has perfect humanity and stuff) Now what goes wrong? Thurs has been going though a lot, first she had to share the man that she loved with ONE woman, then she lost her fertility and baby, then she had to share the man that she loved with TWO women. AND ONE OF THEM HAS BLONDE HAIR! WHAT INJUSTICE! so anyway, all the negative emotions are filled inside Thurs, and after the miscarriage, she is mentally depressed but because of her naive and selfish decisions she now is a balloon which has been filled up with grief, jealousy, sadness, ignorance, revenge, loss, and every terrible emotion which a female protagonist can think of, however the the torture doesn't stop and the balloon fills and fills until finally: oh and why do i keep on forgetting the legendary plot twist?! well guess what! ALL that plot building, ALL that character building, ALL that fucking toxic emotion building for 70% of the book wasssss.... well Thurs is mentally disturbed/ ill, she's delusional bitch wot? why? ok i get it that Tarryn Fisher needs to stuff a plot twist so bad, but why this? that's like as if you read a book and for several hundred pages it's about dragons, faeries, magic etc. and when you reach 80% the protagonist wakes up and all that fantasy was a dream. what would you do with that book huh? by the way, Thurs's mental instability got worse when she lost the child, and if you EVER FOR THE LOVE OF GOD go out in the real world and meet women who have fertility/pregnancy issues you'll find that a significant number of them will be depressed severely or mildly. But that doesn't mean that they're psychos. but it was highly predictable oh come on, this WHOLE plot was "" Something that tells a very different—and horrifying—story about the man she married."" ^^^^^ i mean, this obviously means the things i mentioned about Seth before. tons of crazy ideas must have popped up in your brain the second you read this. unless he was one of those alien lizard freaks people claim Mark Zuckerberg is. and for those who are really interested in who this pig Seth is he unfortunately is a homo sapien (which i greatly disagree) who is a manipulative, abusive, sex maniac jerk, with a desire to have his own babies. and for the love of God he is NOT a psycho, he's just a clever jerk there is difference between a CLEVER JERK AND A PSYCHO speaking of which, he's also very narrow minded and Thurs's "mental illness" was just odd, and her friendship with Hannah was also odd and her sympathy towards herself was also odd i did like the friends in this book though the writing: fast paced with unnecessary blocks of dialogues therefore, in conclusion , this book a) isn't a mystery or thriller b) is -- very unfortunately-- a norm in many polygamist societies. this is shocking of course, but because i have lived in a polygamist society for few years i know that polygamy often come with this hideous package. oh and in case if you're not interested i'm not from a polygamist family. c) if this is a mystery/ thriller than it should have answered the questions that are born after reading the synopsis not just produce even more questions just because the author left Major plot holes, i mean is Thurs really mentally ill, like when she was a child? what made Seth this way, nature or nurture? did Seth marry Thurs for money or love? why the hell did Regina stick with this arse? and is Hannah really that naive that her hubby is away for more than 5 days a week and she didn't suspect that he could be cheating on her? and if you r having a severe impulse to strangle all the characters, don't worry it's completely normal because i wanna do that too p.s. Thursday is a home wrecker (hide spoiler)]

That is wild and is definitely not for me but I’m crazy intrigued (at least by the storyline, lol)! Unfortunately by about 60% the novel just went off the rails. That said, I was still all in.. and it got better (thank gosh) and that was simply because Thursday kept my attention. Heck, I liked her and I believed her! Thursday was heroic, vulnerable and hella interesting. I read on in rapt attention and when I got to the end, I said (outloud, to myself) “Really!? REALLY!!?? You cannot be serious!” (Insert John McEnroe’s voice. “YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS!, and imagine him throwing his tennis racket down..). I suppose when you get right down to it, I just didn’t believe the ending and it made my eyes roll and roll. That aside, Tarryn Fisher’s writing throughout the novel was quite strong. Gripping in fact. Her character development was stellar also. I felt for Thursday and wanted more for her. The fact that this novel got to me speaks volumes and for that I must give kudos to Ms. Fisher even though it irked me to no end. So that’s all folks. That’s all she wrote. Published on Goodreads on 1.4.20.

I just thought that was the day her husband slept with her... Moving along, this story was something else. I have to give it points for being unique. Thursday is married to Seth. Seth has two other spouses. None of them know one another, but as far as Thursday is concerned they are all living in this arrangement by mutual agreement. As Thursday grows less and less enamored with her situation, she becomes curious about who she is sharing her husband with. Upon doing some online research, as you do, she manages to track down his third wife, the youngest and the one currently carrying his baby. Befriending this young woman, Hannah, she begins to suspect that Seth may be physically abusive to her. This leads Thursday to take off her rose colored glasses. There's some fighting, a lot of drama, a stay at a mental institution, it's a lot. Ultimately, even though I love an unreliable narrator, the ending of this didn't sit right with me. There were a lot of twists and turns along the way, but still something about that ending... Certainly twisted, so if that is what you love in a thriller, this one could be right up your alley. Check it out, you never know until you try. Thank you so much to the publisher, Graydon House Books, for providing me with a copy of this to read and review. I appreciate the opportunity and this one was definitely a ride!

    I'm somewhere between 3 and 3.5 stars. Whoa, now that was a crazy ride!! “Imagining what the future holds proves difficult when factoring in two other women who share your husband.” Thursday only sees her husband once a week. It’s not an arrangement she likes, but it’s one she has to live with, since Seth has two other wives. She sometimes can’t believe she agreed to this, and at times she wishes she could just have him to herself. She’s never met either of the other women. She doesn’t even know I'm somewhere between 3 and 3.5 stars.

She sometimes can’t believe she agreed to this, and at times she wishes she could just have him to herself. She’s never met either of the other women. She doesn’t even know their names, although Seth shares small tidbits about each from time to time. But when she finds a piece of paper Seth left behind with one of their names on it, she can’t resist. She scours the internet for information about Hannah, and then one day she plans to “bump in” to her, without telling her who she really is. Seeing Hannah, and talking to her, doesn’t satisfy Thursday’s curiosity: it makes her angrier, more jealous. And when she discovers something about Hannah and Seth’s relationship that alarms her, it presses Thursday to act. The Wives is tremendously fast-paced and it gets CRAZY. The first half of the book is really excellent and it draws you in completely. I couldn’t stop reading it even though I wasn’t happy with how Tarryn Fisher ultimately resolved things. I'm tough on thrillers so you may be completely or partially surprised with the way things end up. (I'm being pretty vague in my description of the plot because I don't want to ruin any of the twists.) If you’re looking for a thriller that will hook you from start to finish, one that will leave you at least slightly breathless, The Wives is one for you!! This book will publish December 30.

    So many thoughts about this book, even days after I finished it. Overall, I did enjoy the book and it was certainly a page turner. However, I wasn't entirely happy with the second half of the story. It was one of those instances in which you still feel invested but yet you are also feeling a bit disappointed in the direction the story is headed. So I am left with some conflicted feelings and I wasn't quite sure what rating I wanted to give the book. 3.5 stars might actually be a better rating.

So I am left with some conflicted feelings and I wasn't quite sure what rating I wanted to give the book. 3.5 stars might actually be a better rating. You really don't need a detailed synopsis for this book. Basically it's about a woman named Thursday who is married to a man named Seth. Thursday doesn't get to spend as much time with Seth as she would like because he has two other wives. Say what? Yes, this is a story about a woman that shares her husband with two other women. It's a thriller, that's really all you need to know ahead of time. I never knew how much I needed a polygamy thriller in my life until I started reading this book. The whole idea of sharing a spouse (and isn't it amazing how it's always a man with multiple wives, and not a female with more than one husband?) is just fascinating to me. Like I don't understand why anyone would want to have this arrangement but hey, if it's between consenting adults, it's not my problem. And that's why I'm glad the author chose to explore some of the issues with plural marriages including what it might be like to love your spouse but also realize the situation is less than ideal. So I loved the first half of the book and it was easy to see why this book is so popular. I did struggle with the second half though. On one hand, I can appreciate how the author did something different and caught me off guard. But on the other hand, I felt like my bubble was burst after the halfway mark and what had been a fun and exciting story up until that point just turned into a different reading experience. If someone took a photo of me while reading I would have a cheesy, popcorn eating grin on my face for the first half of the book, and then it would be replaced with more of a somber face. However at least the ending wasn't dull and I did have a smirk on my face when I finished reading. Overall, not a perfect book but one that I do recommend especially as a book club read as there's plenty to discuss here.

Thursday is the second of three wives to her husband, Seth. Seth spends one night a week with Thursday. He spends other nights with his other wives. The thing is, these wives know about one another, but not their real names or who they are. One day, everything changes for Thursday. She finds out something troubling about Seth’s third wife, and she learns her name. This takes her on a bit of a quest to find out more and more and more. As I said before, I was addicted to this book. I couldn’t put it down. It was so fast paced and intriguing. I especially loved the first 70% or so. The last 30% felt a little off to me personally (hence the 4 star rating) but I was still pretty darn shocked by the ending. I did not see that coming. Even though this isn’t my preferred genre, I love being surprised by twists and turns and this one definitely caught me by surprise. I love that it made me think and wonder what was real and really true and what wasn’t. I might have to pick up more psychological thrillers in my future because I enjoyed reading this so much. Tarryn Fisher always writes the best characters. They’re imperfect, flawed, and sometimes a straight up mess, but I love the way you hate to love and love to hate them. Her writing is brilliant and I found this book highly entertaining and unpredictable!

Read this last evening and I have been thinking about this book all day. I wish YOU and I lived closer because I would totally lend it to you. My first encounter with Tarryn Fisher was "Atheists Who Kneel and Pray" which without a doubt made me a devoted fan. Her upcoming release "The Wives" is definitely going to be hard for you to commit to New Year's plans. Thursday is a hard working nurse in Seattle who doesn't get to see her husband, Seth very often. But it isn't merely his work that keeps him far from home. It is the fact that he must also spend his time with Monday and Tuesday, Thursday's sister wives. As a polygamist by upbringing, Seth isn't interested in his three marital partners being under the same roof. But Thursday is starting to feel a restlessness that cannot be stemmed, and begins to do some detecting to figure out more about her competition. But is Thursday REALLY prepared for what happens next? With my heart in my throat, I just couldn't stop reading. I adore characters that just won't quit asking the questions even if I am covering my eyes peering through open fingers. Also, it probably has one of the most jaw dropping endings of 2019. Tarryn Fisher states in my ARC that suspense is a genre which she longed to try. Merely two days later, I would say that she's definitely joined the club.

The Wives started off more of lighter easy read for me and I thought I was in for a smooth, fast read, well, well things took quite the turn halfway and turned quite twisted. I was horrified by the turn it took but couldn't stop reading it.   I feel like in the past this would have been one that might have upset me a bit, but instead, it was Norma who was. While we were discussing this one, she sounded like me and I sounded like her. Is that a sister thing?   Even though the twisted part of me was on alert and I thought something seemed a little odd, I was shocked by the turn the story took. At times it felt manipulative and that added a little fun to the dark here in this story. After that halfway mark, I couldn't put this one down and I was hiding in different places in the house to read it when I was supposed to be getting ready for Christmas dinner. The ending is something to talk about and we couldn't wait to talk about it. I was left shocked and feeling where did that come from. Were there clues to see that coming? I am not sure there was and I decided I didn't really care. Traveling Sister read. For Norma and Lindsay thoughts on our blog https://twosisterslostinacoulee.com/2...

I never had to skim, so it kept me engaged, but despite an original premise, and a strong start...it just didn’t deliver what I was hoping for, once it stopped exploring the dynamics of the marriages, and became the “psychological thriller” it is meant to be. Just middle of the pack, out of the thrillers that I have read this year.
