The Silent Wife

Book: The Silent Wife
Author: A.S.A. Harrison

Review: Todd and Jodi have been together a long time. Todd, the victim, has a penchant for women on the side. Jodi, the killer, likes to pretend everything is okay in their relationship. 'The Silent Wife' is the unraveling of their relationship before a murder takes place.

I'll be honest-I bought this book because it was marketing as this summer's 'Gone Girl.' I loved GG so I was expecting a psychological thriller. Let me be clear-this book is no where near GG. There is a twist at the end (which was predictable), but overall there is little mystery regarding the main characters. Todd is a dog and Jodi is an expert at denial. Neither character was that likable and while it was sad watching their dysfunctional relationship fall apart, I wasn't that sorry to see Todd eliminated. 

Overall, I liked it but didn't love it. A decent beach read. 

Grade: 3/5
