The Wife Between Us - Greer Hendricks,Sarah Pekkanen

Nellie meets Richard who is everything she wants and the feeling is mutual - so far so good! At first I wasn’t really sure about this book, it was slow, nothing much was happening and frankly I was bored but then suddenly found myself gripped with each new reveal, wondering what would happen next and by who. Definitely a slow burner with plenty of surprises which are engrossing once you’ve reached Part 2. It could’ve been a quarter shorter to be more punchy. It’s also difficult to review this novel without giving too much away and spoiling it for others!!

great book and great characters
Fake Wife - Stacey Lynn

Drake was Teagan’s boyfriend and had been working fifteen hour shifts as he was a resident at Portland General. Drake was the first long term boyfriend Teagan had and they had met her Jr year of college and had now been together for seven years. Teagan had followed Drake all over the country- she had dropped out of college her Jr yr- while he completed medical school and now his internal medicine residency. Teagan had thought they would be married by now. Teagan wanted a husband, family, and a equine therapy farm for special needs children. Teagan began to doubt Drake still loved her, it had been months since they had been intimate. Teagan now worked at a library. But Teagan went to work and found out funding had been cut and she no longer had a job. Teagan goes home early and finds Drake having sex in their bedroom with another woman. Teagan had probably suspected it but had been too naive to name it for at least six months. Corbin’s grandmother had just died and she was the only woman he had loved in his life for as long as he can remember. Corbin had parents but they were either depressed, drunk, or buttholes. His grandmother had left him her mansion and land but he must be married within six months and be married for at least two years. Corbin thought Lane men aren’t built for faithfulness or families. Teagan had rear ended Corbin in his Mercedes Instead of yelling at her Teagan Corbin took her to a high end restaurant and teagan’s honesty and bluntness was refreshing to Corbin after the women he had known all his life. Then Teagan agrees to Corbins plan for her to be his fake wife and then they headed out to his grandmother’s mansion to have some time to get to know each other. What Corbin doesn’t know is he is the man who starred in Teagan’s sexual fantasies. But Teagan can’t act on them or let Corbin know. It was to be strictly a business arrangement Nothing in Teagan’s life would be real for the next two years and she had to remember that. Trey is Corbin’s best friend and he doesn’t really want to lie to him but one little slip and Corbin could lose his grandmother's home. But there is a strong attraction between Corbin and Teagan. I loved this book. I am not sure I believe in love at first sight but this book made me want to. This was a well written great romance. I love Teagan and Corbin together I love how Caitlyn accepted Tegan and quickly became her friend and how she defended Teagan against Corbin when his father had stopped at the house when Corbin was at work. I also loved how Corbin is a man who has everything he could want supposedly but he needed Teagan. I couldn’t find anything to complain about in this book which is great. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I highly recommend.

The Innocent Wife
The Innocent Wife: A Novel - Amy Lloyd

When I finished The Innocent Wife, I found myself wishing that I could rate it in sections. If that were the case, it would be rated in thirds with the first part earning a strong four-stars, two and a half for the middle, and three for the final third of the story. To explain, the beginning is quite gripping and pulled me in, especially with the letters and early visits between Samantha and Dennis. However, once Dennis is released from prison, the story slows to almost a crawl at times. There are some moments when the creep factor rises and I hoped the pace would pick up, but it didn't. Then, what could have been a truly heart-pounding conclusion is rushed to the point that it loses that thing that makes you hold your breath in anticipation. I didn't find any of the characters particularly likable, but for this story, it works. The author does have talent and this could easily have been a four or even five star read had she found a balance in the pacing.

Audio Book Review: The Dark Wife
The Dark Wife - Sarah Diemer

Veronica speaks as Persephone as she tells the story before all has happened, and as it happened. Veronica does cracking voices full of emotion when the book notes it. She feels to speak with such love and emotion that draws my heart into the story. A stunning vocal performance from Veronica as she relates all the emotions through her voice, and draws me into them.

The story is told from Persephone's view, after it's all happened. We learn this in the beginning of the story.

Sarah's writing feels as though it's poetic with emotions strong in her words. The cadence of the telling, along with Veronica's vocals, felt to fit the old sway of words with the Greek gods and goddesses. The details and emotions invested into this story feel to be strong. There is such love written here. And in the voice! Veronica relates the strength of all the emotions present.

Persephone grows fonder and fonder of Hades. In their small connections it seems that Hades is healing, along with Persephone in heart and mind. They have both suffered some loses or torment from others that starts to heal with each other's presence.

We get a feel of the flip of good and evil where we would think to see it. Zeus and Hades, evil and good. Which is the one that has more compassion for people and souls? We see things from a different angle that opens possible thoughts of it all.

This story is told as Hades as a female, as is Persephone. They fall in love and it's beautiful. This book is all emotion. I didn't get a feel of strong prejudice from everyone present. It's natural to love and it doesn't matter who that love is directed to. Love is an amazing emotion and all should feel it. Though, there is one that's not thrilled with it as it's not him receiving the love as he feels he should. He is also one that seems to look down on a relationship between two woman, but that is only briefly mentioned. The story is mainly a gorgeous telling of Persephone finding her way in the world and finding love.

The story is very drawing with the words and Veronica's voice. But the one scene that touched my heart the deepest was when the dead villagers met others. You'll know the moment and who the others are when it happens. Beautiful.

If you thrive on lush descriptions of all around you and feelings, this is a great read for you.
