The Ex-Wife – Jess Ryder

The ex-wife opens with a prologue where we meet Anna lying in a hospital bed, obviously distraught and unaware of what happened to her.

Perfect marriage, adoring husband, a beautiful daughter, perfect life. Natasha appears to have it all; there’s just a small niggle. Her husband’s ex-wife, Jen is still a part of his life and not completely out of the picture. She seems to still have feelings for Nick.

Natasha tries to cope with this awkward dynamic until her husband and daughter disappear without a trace. Desperate to find her daughter, Natasha enlists Jen’s help. But can Jen be trusted?

The Ex-Wife is written in two different timelines and moves between the perspectives of Natasha and Jen, as well as that of Anna.

So who is Anna?

The book was engaging and held my interest from the very start. The twist at the end of part one was a good surprise. The suspense was surprising and kept me on the edge of my seat. The ending was brilliant, and I loved how the story played out. Overall, this was a pretty enjoyable read.
