Author Event: The Wife Between Us
January 9, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Barnes & Noble is organizing an author event for the new psychological thriller Wife Between Us. Greer Hendricks, who spent more than 20 years as a book editor, joins forces with Sarah Pekkanen (The Best of Us) to create a jaw-dropping psychological thriller.
Unreliable narrator Vanessa Thompson is obsessed with her ex-husband’s fiancée and on the verge of becoming unhinged. She gave up everything to have a fairy tale life in Westchester with too-good-to-be-true hedge fund manager Richard. After a series of failed fertility treatments, their marriage unraveled, and Richard leaves her for a younger woman. Hendricks and Pekkanen chronicle a marriage gone wrong through the alternating accounts of the shattered Vanessa and a vibrant, younger woman named Nellie.
This is not another eye-rolling story about the jealous ex-wife stalking her replacement, as readers will discover as Vanessa’s motivations are revealed. Unforgettable twists lead to shocking revelations all the way through the epilogue. 250,000-copy announced first printing. Agent: Victoria Sanders, Victoria Sanders and Associates.
