The Twilight Wife by A.J. Banner


About the book:

From bestselling author A.J. Banner comes a dazzling new novel of psychological suspense in the vein of S.J. Watson’s Before I Go to Sleep and Mary Kubica’s The Good Girl that questions just how much we can trust the people around us.

Thirty-four-year-old marine biologist Kyra Winthrop remembers nothing about the diving accident that left her with a complex form of memory loss. With only brief flashes of the last few years of her life, her world has narrowed to a few close friendships on the island where she lives with her devoted husband, Jacob.

But all is not what it seems. Kyra begins to have visions—or are they memories?—of a rocky marriage, broken promises, and cryptic relationships with the island residents, whom she believes to be her friends.

As Kyra races to uncover her past, the truth becomes a terrifying nightmare. A twisty, immersive thriller, The Twilight Wife will keep readers enthralled through the final, shocking twist.

What I Thought:
Holy. Freaking. Crap.
I love a good psychological thriller. The Good Girl, Gone Girl, anything else by Gillian Flynn, etc.
I finished this was in a less than 24 hour period because I was flipping through the pages at rapid speed every chance that I got.
I really cannot talk too much about this book without giving spoilers away.
To give you an idea of just how much I loved this book,  I have told every one that I know that likes to read psych thrillers about this book, and lastly I hardly ever give out 5 star ratings. I gave this book a 5 star rating.
This book was just a total mind blower. Just when you think you might have something figured out, the author throws you for a loop
And still, if you do figure out what’s going on or when you get to that part in the book, just the complexity of it, the elaborate measures taken will blow your mind.
The main character, Kyra was injured in a diving accident and she has no memory of the past few years of her life, other than what her husband Jacob has told her. She has some memories of her life before, when she was younger, but no memory of her relationship with and marriage to Jacob.
 Between her memory coming backin flashes and conversations with local people from the island they live on, Kyra begins to try to piece back together the years that she lost. However, she starts to worry when she begins having memories of her having an affair with a man other than her husband.
Again, I couldn’t put this one down and highly recommend it.
I also nominated it for one of my Top Ten Books Read in 2016.
