When Ella wakes up in hospital following a hit and run incident, she is scared and confused. Close to tears, her eyes fall on a get-well-soon card on the window sill and the nurse reassures her that her loving husband will be back soon.
But Ella has never been married…
Absolutely love twisty and unputdownable psychological thrillers like Girl on the Train, The Wife Between Us and Gone Girl? Then you will be totally hooked by this jaw-dropping novel about the dangerous secrets behind a perfect marriage.
When we first get to meet Ella, she comes across as a bit of a recluse. It’s as if something is holding her back from socialising with her work mates. There is obviously something that is holding her back so was very intrigued as to just what that was.
When she wakes up in hospital to a man claiming to be her husband well my inner sensors were going haywire. My intrigue shot up a level and was desperate to know more about this man.
The further into the book I got the more hooked I became. I ended up reading it in one evening as just couldn’t tear myself away no matter how hard I tried. Married life for Ella really makes for some seriously surprising reading with more than a couple of what the? moments.
The Liar’s Wife is a seriously compulsive read that you won’t want to put down. It was an addictive read that I couldn’t get enough of and the build up of tension was just off the scale. You know how great a book is when your heart is still racing hours after finishing the book as the adrenaline was still coursing through my body. Compulsive, addictive, what more do you need from a psychological thriller?
