Book Review Quickie: The Silent Wife by A.S.A. Harrison

Jodi led the perfect life, or so she told herself. She met the perfect man, and stayed with him for 20 years. They were both completely smitten with each other, except that Todd had a wandering eye. 

Jodi, ever dutiful, ever content, allowed Todd to wander. She wasn’t threatened by these nameless women. Until one is a bit too pushy and Todd is a bit too unhappy, then poof, Jodi’s little life is broken. 

She was so deep into denial of her situation, that every step pushed her to the point that she snapped. 

This was touted as the next Gone Girl, I don’t think that the right reason to read this book. The characters are completely unlikeable and unrelatable. However, the story keeps you interested. I wasn’t surprised by the ending, the author foreshadows heavily at the beginning of the book, but it didn’t take away from the enjoyment of the read.
