Book Synopsis



An Instant Bestseller!
The New York Times USA Today The Globe and Mail The Toronto Star

What happens behind closed doors never stays hidden for long.

It was supposed to be easy. Thursday would share her husband, Seth, with his other two wives, Monday and Tuesday--two women she's never met and knows nothing about. No questions asked, no hurt feelings. And for a while, the arrangement works...until Thursday finds a scrap of paper with a name--Monday's real name--and an address.

Now Thursday can't stop herself. She wants to know more about this woman: who she is, what she's like...what Seth sees in her that Thursday doesn't have.

She orchestrates a fraudulent friendship with Tuesday to get to the truth, what she really signed up for when she agreed to this marriage. But the more she learns about this other wife--and his mysterious first wife, Tuesday--the more she sees that Seth is not the man she thought he was.

As more disturbing details come to light, it becomes clear that there's a reason why he didn't want the women to meet after all. A very good reason.

One that Thursday never saw coming.

Review Quotes



You'll have whiplash until the very end. The Wives will leave the most sure footed reader uneasy until the last word is read. -Colleen Hoover, New York Times bestselling author of Verity

"I couldn't put it down... Nail-biting, heart-clenchingly good from the start, with characters that you both root and cringe for. I loved every word. Six stars." -Alessandra Torre, New York Times bestselling author of The Ghostwriter

Fisher smoothly inserts moments of self-doubt, longing, paranoia, and triumph into her unsettling narrative as she draws the reader into Thursday's conflicted and increasingly complicated life. Suspense fans will be rewarded.--Publishers Weekly

Fisher is a slick writer who keeps a tight rein on her lightning-fast plot, and the lengths that her feisty narrator goes to in order to reclaim her life make for salaciously satisfying reading...Fisher is a writer to watch.--Kirkus

An intriguing plot takes some sharp twists in the search for the elusive truth in this fast-reading domestic thriller.--Booklist

"Fans of Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl will revel in The Wives...Fisher's story, like the score of a film, builds to an emotional and psychological crescendo that will keep readers on their toes until its final page. --USA Today

Fisher draws us in with a topic few of us are familiar with-polygamy. However, she keeps us turning the page by having us share the mind of a sympathetic character. It's a compelling story of self-loathing, revenge, and denial that will keep readers up at night with the lights on and their devices off.--BookTrib

"A gripping ride that will keep readers guessing, The Wives...delivers heart-pounding suspense."--Shelf Awareness

"This is a true psychological thriller...[a] shocking ending."--Suspense Magazine
