About The Book

You’ve never met the other wives. None of you know each other, you see your husband only one day a week. Thursday. But you don’t care, you love him that much. Or at least that’s what you’ve told yourself…

And then, one day it all changes.

You thought you were fine with this, with only having a fraction of a husband. But you can’t help yourself, you start to dig. You begin tracking them down, the other days… Who is Monday and why does she have bruises on her arms? Is she being abused? By who? Her husband? Your husband?

What else is he keeping from you? And who is he, really?


Thursday is determined to be the perfect wife to her husband Seth. She always makes sure she is perfectly made up with a delicious meal on the table for his return home, ready and willing to be at his beck and call…..after all they only get one sacred day a week together as Thursday isn’t Seth’s only wife.

Having to share her husband with two other mysterious women, it’s no wonder Thursday often finds herself jealously wondering about who Seth spends the rest of his his time with. With information about the other wives scare, Thursday can’t believe her luck when she finds a clue in the pocket of Seth’s trousers and despite knowing she shouldn’t her curiosity gets the better of her and before she knows it she’s in too deep. But what Thursday discovers makes her question everything; does she know her husband at all?

OH MY WORD! I’m not sure any review I produce will do justice to this book – I thoroughly enjoyed it! The Wives is a fast-paced, unpredictable thriller that had me hooked from the very first page. I found myself drawn straight into the midst of this polygamist relationship set up which intrigued and terrified me in equal measure thanks to the atmospheric writing style Fisher uses throughout, I literally felt on edge the whole time!

Now I’ve used the analogy of being on a roller coaster ride to describe books before, but this book is the true definition of an edge of the seat, white knuckle ride. The plot line for this story flips, twists and turns so many times I lost count – each time I thought I’d worked out what was going on and how things were going to play out another crazy spanner was thrown into the works changing everything. This book kept me guessing every step of the way and I genuinely didn’t foresee it’s finale, which is quite a rare occurrence for me as I’m terrible for predicting how stories will end then being disappointed!

The synopsis for The Wives promised an unusual, mystery filled story line and it’s execution was so much more than I anticipated. This has to be one of my favourite books of the year to date and I can’t wait to check out some of Tarryn Fisher’s backlisted books as I absolutely adored her characters and writing style. If you are looking for a thriller with a unique, intriguing story line to captivate your imagination then this book is for you!
