THE WIFE BETWEEN US is the debut novel of co-authors Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen. Hendricks, a former book editor with a major New York publishing house, lives in Manhattan with her family. Pekkanen, the author of seven bestselling solo novels, lives in Maryland with her three sons. THE WIFE BETWEEN US has been sold in 30 countries and optioned for film by Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Partners. It is a Book of the Month Club Pick, an Amazon Best Book of the Month, and an Indie Next Pick. Hendricks and Pekkanen are currently at work on their next novel, also a psychological thriller.
You guys. Go read this book. Seriously. Just drop whatever it is you’re doing right now and go get it and lock yourself in your bedroom so nobody can bother you and read it. It’s that good. There’s a reason it’s on everyone’s “Books You Must Read in 2018” list, and been optioned for a movie, and made it onto Kris’ top 5 books read in 2017 (she was the first Midwest Lady to read it and has been raving about it ever since). And do you realize what’s even more exciting? This is their first collaboration. So we can only guess (but we’re feeling pretty confident about it) that their future collaborations will be just as awesome, if not more so.
Yes, we realize we’re a bit biased because Sarah is literally the woman who brought the four of us together (we met at one of her signings), but she and Greer have proved their worth as a fierce writing duo with The Wife Between Us. So go buy a copy if you haven’t already, lock yourself away and read it, and if you are lucky enough to be close to one of their tour stops, go say hi. You won’t regret it.
