The Wives by Tarryn Fisher

New York Times bestselling author Tarryn Fisher delivers a pulse-pounding, fast-paced suspense novel that will leave you breathless. A thriller you won’t be able to put down!

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.


I love Tarryn Fisher books, have read every single one of her books and been hooked on every one. But The Wives was something else entirely, I read it from start to finish in under three hours, I did not move until I had read every word, it was amazing.

The plot was so fresh and originally, and honestly genius, the twists and the turns are so frequent that it would almost give you whiplash.

It was a clever, complete unpredictable psychological thriller that had me guessing what was actually real and what was actually going on the whole way through.

Going into the book without much knowledge of the story is best, then the surprises and twists will hit harder, so I’m keeping this review completely spoiler free. I honestly feel like I don’t have to words to fully justify how good it was, it’s a masterpiece in my opinion, and I’ll most likely just ramble about it now.

The characters are all so interesting and intriguing, Tarryn has picked a subject that I’m sure not many people are very knowledgable on, I certainly didn’t know much about polygamy before I picked this up, but I tell you now, I wouldn’t ever agree to it.

In the story ‘The Wives’ are all so different, I loved watching Thursday, a hard working nurse in Seattle try and figure out little things about her husbands other two wives, a husband that she only sees a little bit of the week, she wants to figure out who his Monday and Tuesday ‘wives’ are, to try and know them and maybe figure out why her husband had chosen this life and each of them. You can tell that Thursday is deeply troubled by this, even though this is the life she has chosen for herself. She is relentless in her pursuit, but will she like what she finds?

There are so many crazy moments, and a lot of moments of darkness and eery happenings, so fully prepare yourself for this ride, it’s an experience in book form.

This is now my all time favourite physiological thriller, Tarryn always does it for me, but this has raised the bar so high, I can’t wait to see what she comes out with next. If you like these kind of books, please please give this a go, I really don’t think you’ll regret it!
