“You’ll have whiplash until the very end.”—New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover

Thursday’s husband, Seth, has two other wives. She’s never met them, and she doesn’t know anything about them. She agreed to this unusual arrangement because she’s so crazy about him.

But one day, she finds something. Something that tells a very different—and horrifying—story about the man she married.

What follows is one of the most twisted, shocking thrillers you’ll ever read.

You’ll have to grab a copy to find out why.

“Nail-biting, heart-clenchingly good.”—New York Times bestselling author Alexandra Torre

“[A] lightning-fast plot.”—Kirkus

“Suspense fans will be rewarded.”—Publishers Weekly

“Some sharp twists.”—Booklist

Ok, I'm dead serious. I have no idea what I just read...and in a good way. I had seen a lot of talk about this book but nothing I read went into much detail. And for that, I am grateful.

This book is from the viewpoint of Thursday, Seth's legal wife in a polygamist marriage with two other wives. She is a nurse and works the night shift to keep herself busy because she only sees her husband one night a week, not only because he has two other wives but because he lives in another city. They have an arrangement where she knows nothing about the other wives, not even their names. They refer to them as Monday and Tuesday, their perspective days with Seth. But, after finding a slip of paper in Seth's pocket with a name on it, her curiosity gets the better of her, and not only does she look up one of the other wives she befriends her. This is the start of a dark and twisted road, one that will make you wonder what exactly you just read. 

I don't want to go into a lot of details, but there are many pieces to this story that are woven together masterfully, and when you are done you will think back on what you just read and wonder if you missed something along the way. Making you want to pick it back up for a re-read knowing what you know now.

I was not familiar with this author but she is certainly on my radar, and this is one book that I will make sure to recommend, even if its just to find other people that I can hash it out with, lol.
