"Honestly, i did NOT see the ending coming. There were multiple mysteries within one. I had pieced a lot of it together, but I missed one hint and that made a huge difference toward the end. I’m surprised it’s not a more popular book, because i finished this in about a day. It has you thinking and questioning — and the gaslighting is terrifying, but it’s done well and shows how damaging true gaslighting can be. "

"Took forever to get through. Slow read but decent plot. "
"After reading last year’s debut thriller,[b:Pretty Little Wife|53441185|Pretty Little Wife|Darby Kane|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1601939668l/53441185._SY75_.jpg|83116387]’ by Darby Kane, I knew I would continue to read every book she wrote again! It can be hard to outdo such an amazing debut, but let me assure you…The Replacement Wife equally gripping as it’s predecessor! <br/><br/>The protagonist is a wife and mother who suspects her brother in law may be involved in fowl play with his fiancées sudden disappearance. Her mental stability is questioning and people aren’t believing a word she is saying. <br/><br/>This is such a twisted fast-paced book, with a terrifying subject on how mental abuse can truly affect a person’s sanity and life! 4.5 ⭐️s<br/><br/>Thank you @bibliolifestyle @williammorrowbooks for the gifted copy in exchange for my honest opinion."
