Imagine that your husband has two other wives. None of you know each other, and due to this unconventional arrangement, you can only see him once a week. But you love him so much you don't care. Then, one day, you find a note with the name Hannah on it. Unable to help yourself, you track her down, and, under false pretenses, strike up a friendship. When Hannah shows up to your coffee dates with bruises, you realize she's being abused by her husband--who, of course, is also your husband. But you've never known him to be violent. Who exactly is your husband, and how far would you go to find the truth? Would you risk your own life? And who is his mysterious third wife?

Ugh. The story became more and more far fetched. I decided it was along the lines of "Gone Girl" and somebody was delusional here. I ended up skimming about a third of the book. Not enjoyable, just very irritating. I just wanted to shake some sense into the narrator, Thursday.

This book kept me on my toes, I had these questions that were eventually answered and then just when I thought I understood everything - boom! I am actually surprised by the mixed reviews. I think once getting started on this book it is undoubtedly hard to put down, so love it or hate it you will still want to know what happens.

Quite disappointed in this book. It started off well but deteriorated into weirdness. I almost stopped reading it about 2/3's in. I have decided to avoid new books with the word girl or wife in the title as they tend to be disappointing.

Loved this book, it had me guessing until the very end. That says a lot considering how many thrillers I read! I love books I can’t put down, and this was one of them. Liked the ending way more than typical thriller endings. Fantastic, highly recommend.

Disappointing and not worth the time

Not caught up in the story line. Polygamy fascinates people. Ho hum.
Which is more common - severe mental illness or men wanting multiple partners or partners gaslighting their partners? Depends on what you label mental illness...

Quite a disappointment. Pushed my way through to the end since I bought it during the library closure. I guess that if it were 'free' I wouldn't mind the mind-numbing plot and characters.

Terrible. And the spelling mistakes... wow. That this found a publisher is stunning.

I really enjoyed this thriller. I've been fascinated with polygamy since Big Love, and this adds a fresh new twist. A quick read that will keep you guessing.

I was not a fan of Fisher's writing style or her lead character, but I kept reading because there were several issues that needed resolution and the author did a good job of hooking me in to her plot. 'So glad that I read it through to the end. Everything fit together, even the character's personality and the author's style of writing. The more I thought about it, I esteem this book to have taken more care and skill to be written than the popular "Gone Girl".
