Review: The Twilight Wife

I received an ARC of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This did not affect my opinion of the book or my review itself.

Title: The Twilight Wife
Author: A.J. Banner
Publication Date: December 27, 2016
Genre: Psychological Suspense/Thriller
Recommended If You Like: Before I Go to Sleep, psychological tales, secrets reemerging, learning along with the character

The Book:

Kyra is a marine biologist who was in a terrible diving accident, and has lost many of her memories. She now lives on an isolated island with her husband, Jacob, who takes care of her and acts as her protector when she cannot call up the past.

But as flashes of Kyra's memory start to return, she begins to fear that all may not be as it seems.

What I Liked:

This was a suspenseful read! Banner does an excellent job of having the readers learn things right along with Kyra, so I felt that surprise and shock and disquiet right along with the main character. As I got to the last few chapters, I could not put the book down. I had to know what was the truth, and what was going to happen. There's a scene with a computer...no spoilers here, I promise, but once you hit that spot with Kyra, be prepared to devote the next few hours to finishing this book, because you will have to know what happens next.

Anything I Didn't Like?

I did find that being very familiar with Before I Go to Sleep (it's one of my favorite reads in this genre) did perhaps make it easier to guess what was going to happen next in some parts of the book. But because I loved the plot twists of Before I Go to Sleep, this didn't really bother me.


Read this book! It's an excellent addition to the psychological suspense genre, and really well-written. You will be hooked.
