The Wives by Tarryn Fisher. (2019).
**3.5 out of 5 stars**
Imagine that your husband has two other wives; you all share him but have never met one another. But you love him so much that you don’t care…or at least that’s what you told yourself. But one day you find a note in his pocket with the name Hannah on it and you just know that must be one of the wives. You thought you were ok with your arrangement but you can’t help yourself and you track her down. She has no idea who you are and she also has telltale bruises that makes you realise her (and your) husband is abusing her. But he’s never acted that way with you. Who exactly is your husband and how far are you willing to go to find out?
And who is the third wife??
From what I can gather, this is one of those currently super popular books that everyone and their mother is reading haha. For me, I hear polygamy and I’m definitely intrigued from the beginning. While this book is quite enjoyable, I would have rated it higher if not for the utter craziness that was the last quarter; a case of too much my friends, too much. There’s twists that are unexpected and well done and then there’s twists that are like you have just tried that bit to hard. The last bits of this book fell in the latter category for me. Character wise, we are following the story from Thursday’s point of view. Seth stays with her on a…you guessed it…Thursday. She is quite fascinating actually, it’s like she is trying to be the perfect wife who is okay with everything when she quite clearly isn’t.
I’m pretty sure a lot of readers would enjoy this one, even the crazy ride at the end!
