Richard is a very successful New York hedge fund manager. His intensity mixed with a lot of charm makes him irresistible, and he seems like the perfect catch. He’s also got a penchant for a certain type of woman, and is ready to walk down the aisle with the next Mrs. Thompson. Vanessa is his ex-wife. She seems to be having a really hard time adjusting to her new circumstances, now that she’s living with her aunt and working at Saks on the sales floor. She is stalking Richard’s fiancée and is determined to stop the wedding at all costs.
I don’t want to give anything away, but I will tell you that I read this book in one sitting – I literally could not put it down. Yes, it does follow the “Gone Girl/Girl on the Train” formula, BUT, even if you’re getting a bit weary of that, I think you’ll find that The Wife Between Us delivers on intensity as well as thrills.
