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.
MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD!!!!!!!!!!!!
My Review: 3 star
Unlike a lot of other people who have read Tarryn Fisher books, this is only my second book from her and the first book I read, I didn’t really enjoy. I’ve seen a lot of reviews comparing this book to her other books and I know they are completely different types of writing but for me, I am going into this review like a new reader to this author.
So…. here we go! (REMEMBER SPOILERS AHEAD)
I just finished this book and my head is still wondering “What in the hell just happened?”
This book was a wild ride. A book about lies, polygamy, deceit, love.
Thursday was her day. He came over on Thursdays. That was how the schedule was. Seth’s time was spilt between her and his two other wives (Monday and Tuesday) Thursday was the second wife. She made sure Thursday the best day he was going to have that week. She wanted to be his light and his favorite, so she did everything right. Everything her mom taught her about being a good wife.
“It’s all too perfect, I think. When things are that perfect, something is wrong.”
But Thursday wanted more. She needed more. And she started having more thoughts about the other wives. Wondering more and more about them. She did not know them, only what Seth told her about them.
When she found a piece of paper in a pocket in his pants one day, she knew she needed to see who the woman was who’s name was on the paper. What this third wife looked like. She deserved to know. She had agreed to let him have another wife. She just wanted to please him, to make him happy.
But what unfolds is nothing like I thought it would be. Another reviewer said that this book was ” a mindfuck and a clusterfuck at the same time” and I would TOTALLY agree with that.
Thursday, Monday, Tuesday, Seth….. everything they said made me question the entire story.
Was anything real?
Why was everyone telling different stories?
Why did no-one believe Thursday?
3SPOLIER TIME: Skip this part if you don’t want to be spoiled…….
Nothing was real… I was not expecting that.
I knew something was off but I felt that maybe the other wives did not know about Thursday or maybe he mad more wives than he said. But for her to have made all this up…. I was not ready for that.
I didn’t see this story as was “really dark” read like some others have. It is defiantly a psychological thriller but to me it wasn’t that dark.
The reason I gave this book 3 stars was because the second half of the book was a cluster in my opinion. The first half was really solid. It pulled me into the story. The second half was not the same. I think the book had a really good plot but I felt like the second half of the book could have been delivered better. I think it was rushed and things got confusing.
About the Author:
I would like to write a novel that every, single person loves, but not even J.K. Rowling could do that. Instead, I try to write stories that pull on people’s emotions. I believe that sadness is the most powerful emotion, and swirled with regret the two become a dominating force. I love villains. Three of my favorites are Mother Gothel, Gaston and the Evil Queen who all suffered from a pretty wicked case of vanity (like me). I like to make these personality types the center of my stories.
I love rain, Coke, Starbucks and sarcasm. I hate bad adjectives and the word “smolder”. If you read my book-I love you. If you hate my book-I still love you, but please don’t be mean to me; I’m half badass, half cry baby.

Great review, this book looks and sounds very intriguing I might need to check it out one day. Thank you so much for sharing your awesome post.
I had to stop reading as to not be spoiled! I just got this one from BOTM. I will come back and visit when I am done.
Great review, sorry it wasn’t a brilliant book though.
I had high hopes for this one too.
I am sorry you didn’t enjoy this one. It is in my TBR.
I’m sorry to hear you didn’t like this book, I really enjoyed it. The second half of the novel I had to read more slowly as it was a “mindfuck and a clusterfuck.”
this is a new to me author.. and sorry this book did not work for you
“A golden middle” that is what comes to my mind when I think about this book. Not the strongest work of Tarryn Fisher for sure.
