This is a tough book to talk about without giving much away. In short Thursday is married to Seth who has two other wives and she knows nothing about them until she accidentally discovers one of their names .Thursday  can’t help but do a little investigating about the other wives. What she finds is far more than she bargained for and nothing will ever be the same again

The Wives by Tarryn Fisher is my  first book by author Tarryn Fisher, and is definitely not going to be my last.Told from Thursdays POV this is one heck of a dark twisty ride and even though the ending was a little over the top it worked well for this book . Highly recommend
