Giveaway: The Wife Between Us

Summary: When you read this book, you will make many assumptions.
You will assume you are reading about a jealous ex-wife.
You will assume she is obsessed with her replacement – a beautiful, younger woman who is about to marry the man they both love.
You will assume you know the anatomy of this tangled love triangle.
Assume nothing.

Twisted and deliciously chilling, Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen's The Wife Between Us exposes the secret complexities of an enviable marriage - and the dangerous truths we ignore in the name of love. -- St. Martin's Press 

One of the first books I read in 2018 was THE WIFE BETWEEN US by  Sarah Pekkanen and  Greer Hendricks. It was a smart and suspenseful (and instant best-selling) thriller that has already been optioned for a film by the same people that made Girl on the Train. You can read my review here. I said a lot about the novel, but here's a little teaser from my review:

All in all, it's hard not to wholeheartedly recommend THE WIFE BETWEEN US to fans of women's fiction and suspense novels. It's unusual enough that it will surprise (and maybe shock) readers... and question everything they think they know about traditional thrillers!

But don't take my word for it... it's a 2018 Indie Next Pick and one of Glamour Magazine's Best Books of 2018. It also received a starred review from Publishers Weekly. It has many terrific blurbs including this one by an author who knows a thing or two about thrillers: 

“A clever thriller with masterful twists.” 
- Karin Slaughter, New York Times bestselling author of THE KEPT WOMAN

Just check out this trailer below and then tell me that this book doesn't look awesome?

THE WIFE BETWEEN US gives new meaning to the term "unreliable narrator", and it has more twists and turns than you could ever imagine. Just when you think you have things figured out, something happens that turns your reading experience upside down! If you haven't read this novel, you won't want to miss it... and if you have already read it, you should get another copy and share it with a friend.

And that brings me to my next point... thanks to the fine folks at St. Martin's Press, I have a fantastic giveaway for THE WIFE BETWEEN US "Oh Shit Kit!" The prize pack includes:
