The Silent Wife by A.S.A. Harrison @penguinbooks @audible @goodreads

The Silent Wife, A.S.A. Harrison’s debut psychological thriller, was released in Canada, the US, and the UK on 25 June 2013. It quickly rose to #2 on the New York Times bestseller list and has garnered widespread critical acclaim.

“There are lots of reasons why a woman stays with a man, even when she’s given up on changing him and can predict with certainty the shape that the rest of her life with him is going to take.”

Book Summary…

A chilling psychological thriller about a marriage, a way of life, and how far one woman will go to keep what is rightfully hers….

Jodi and Todd are at a bad place in their marriage. Much is at stake, including the affluent life they lead in their beautiful waterfront condo in Chicago, as she, the killer, and he, the victim, rush haplessly toward the main event. He is a committed cheater; she lives and breathes denial. He exists in dual worlds; she likes to settle scores. He decides to play for keeps; she has nothing left to lose. Told in alternating voices, The Silent Wife is about a marriage in the throes of dissolution, a couple headed for catastrophe, concessions that can’t be made, and promises that won’t be kept. Expertly plotted and reminiscent of Gone Girl and These Things Hidden, The Silent Wife ensnares the listener from its opening lines and never lets go.

Our Review…

“Life has a way of taking its toll on the person you thought you were.”

It’s hard not to put yourself in Jodi’s shoes while reading The Silent Wife. It would be ridiculous to think you would know what to do if you were in the same situation! As Todd and Jodi’s story unravels, the reader is inclined to root for Jodi in every way! No woman deserves the treatment she got before, during, and after Todd’s reckless behavior! In many ways Jodi will be the hero of the story to many. It’s the ultimate… what goes around comes around scenario! We enjoyed reading this story but we are sad there won’t be others. RIP A.S.A. Harrison! Thank you for gracing the literary world with your writing! Xox 💔
