The book is dramatic and mysterious with a few unexpected twists. I enjoyed reading it.

This is NOT, as some readers say, another Gone Girl. But it is pretty darned good. Not as much creepiness as Gone Girl; not as spine-shivering psychologically. But a good story with a bit of mystery and an ending that surprises even after you think you have it all figured out. It's not spoiling to say that I disliked the husband from the beginning and kept saying she had every right to kill him. It was surprising that her first attempt, such as it was, came so early in the book. And the story held on to me from there on out. The main character, Jodi, has many layers. It takes most of the book to see them all and understand why she handles things as she does. She's a psychologist and it's about psychology. Pretty interesting. Really worth the read.

Someone said this is the next "Gone Girl", not even close! Was not surprised or even interested. The characters in this book are not all that interesting or deep for that matter. It was a challenge to finish, but I did hoping for that dramatic twist that never came to light.

This book had a good flow, although it was a bit wordy towards the end. Harrison provides good descriptions throughout, making the reader feel as if they're living the lives of the characters. The ending had a twist to it & was a bit abrupt, but i've recommended it to others.

I enjoy psychological explorations into the mind. This is a fascinating peek into a damaged union, an exciting crime and psychological thriller that reveals the value of silence and time. A good plot, a lot of insight by an author who quite possibly lived it to get the details so right on. The is a very interesting read that is worth heeding.

The author uses a unique writing style and presentation of characters to paint a vivid canvas telling a familiar story of betrayal in a deeply personal and different way. A real page-turner through the end. Loved it.

This was a good read. A quick, page-turner. But to compare it to the masterpiece that is "Gone Girl" is a bit of a stretch.

The Silent Wife was entertaining and had a interesting plot but, was a bit slow at times. In my opinion I wouldn't compare to this book to Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl because I feel Gone Girl's plot was more unique and original than The Silent Wife.

I liked Gone Girl and i liked the Silent Wife. Interesting twist to tell you the end of the book upfront. It was good to see how it unfolded.

This book captured my interest from beginning to end. It is a well writen thriller for anyone who knows what it like to be in a complicated romantic relationship. As a soon to be pyschologist i also apprciated the way Harrison portrayed the womans professional life among her personal one. A must read, i promise after you're done you will be anxious to read it again!

The author takes the reader on a psychological journey into the hearts and minds of the main chatacters. You are able to see their raw thoughts and often warped logic. A terrific read that i would highly recommend!

Enjoyed the story and characters very much. It's a fun read - I think it's not serious enough for my book club.

A psychological thriller with many insights into the behaviors of the main characters .which not only kept me turning the pages but caused me to pause and ponder human behavior in relationship to our childhoods. Had everything, well developed plot and characters and mystery to boot. CherieSG

Had Avery interesting twist but overall was just okay.

Superb book. Simply told, but with an underlying intense emotional depth for both Jodi and Todd, that develops quickly and extremely suspensefully. For the intelligent reader.

Whoever it was who coined that old adage would likely agree with me that in the case of THIS story's 'WIFE'... silence is not only golden, but is totally life redeeming! For all women who are partnered with a Todd-like character (and who of us, much to our dismay, wouldn't LOVE to be?) the author of this book (may she rest in peace) has provided a smart guide on how to triumph in the end by the not so simple act of keeping ones fears and evil thoughts from erupting through ones mouth!

It was not as good as I hoped it would be. Should NOT be compared to Gone Girl that book was soooooo damn good.

This book was touted as this years Gone Girl,,,,,not even close. The characters were all deeply flawed, it was impossible to like any of of them. It was a struggle getting through it.

Excellent!  Well developed characters.  Too bad we will not be getting any more from this gifted author.

While it's not Gone Girl, this is a good psychological thriller. Hard to put down.
