Zoe fainted on her wedding day, and she never knew why. She’s always felt sure something bad happened. Ten years later, she’s going to find out what…

It was supposed to be the happiest day of her life. Zoe was sitting in her hotel room, in her perfect white dress, looking forward to the moment when she would make kind, handsome Toby her husband.

Then, there was a blank.

They said she must have fainted, overcome with emotion. But nothing felt quite right afterwards. Did something happen in that missing time?

Now, Toby and Zoe have two beautiful children and a perfect life. They’re planning their ten-year anniversary party for their family and friends. The invitations have been sent, the food ordered. They’re going back to the grand hotel where they got married.

But as the anniversary gets closer, it becomes clear not everyone is looking forward to celebrating. Zoe catches Toby lying about where he’s been. One of her best friends seems to be ignoring her. And someone is spreading stories that might stop the party from happening at all.

Zoe is increasingly sure that she doesn’t have the full story. But does she want to know the truth, if it will destroy everything?

From the million-copy bestselling author, this totally gripping psychological thriller will have you hooked from the first page to the last jaw-dropping twist. Perfect for fans of The Girl on the TrainGone Girl and The Wife Between Us.

I don’t know why, as it is always the case, but I am always astounded at how Shalini Boland can come up with a story that out does the previous book! With each, she up’s the ante and The Wife is no exception! This is one thrilling read that you need to add to your 2020 reading list stat!

The Wife has an intriguing plot that has been well crafted and expertly executed. Shalini Boland took me on one wild ride and into the lives of her character’s, that she brings to life perfectly. It’s premise captured my attention instantly and held me hostage till it’s final jaw dropping page! Shalini Boland is the queen of a twist and will have you in shock, when all is revealed in its entirety.

Shalini Boland definitely knows what her readers love and she delivers on this each and every time, which makes her one the best and most exciting authors in the psychological thriller genre. Her flawless writing and style just make her stories come to life and are interactive as she makes the reader feel involved as it all unfolds.   

In some ways, Shalini Boland makes writing a review very difficult, as there are only so many ways I can say how great herself and her stories are without starting to sound like a broken record. I fully blame her for this for being so fantastic, so the record will be broken for a long time to come!

So to wrap up, The Wife is a twisty and suspenseful read and with its lightening speed pace, is super hard to put down. Each chapter is succinct and to the point and leaves you wanting more and more in the lead up to its spectacular finale! Congratulations on another first class read Shalini and I will be eagerly and most of all impatiently waiting for your next one! It was an absolute pleasure to read and review The Wife which I highly recommend.

  1. Lovely review Marnie. I loved the book in most of it. Then a couple of things which as a doc I didn’t like, but I suppose creative license is valid. The doc and reader in me are warring. No idea what I would write. Read it 2 days ago, review pending.
