Author: A.J. Banner
Pages: 304
Publishing: December 27th 2016 by Touchstone
ISBN: 1501152114


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.


The Twilight Wife begins with a seemingly normal start about a woman who has lost her memory in a diving accident. And then, just like that, BANG... the reader is hit with constant twists and turns that no one could have seen coming! I was sucked in from the first chapter and loved every second of it. 

As soon as I got into the meat of the book, I could tell something seemed a little off with some of the characters, but I had a really hard time putting my finger on it. I loved how Banner gave me just enough information to think I knew what was going on, but not enough to really figure it all out. I was constantly questioning the characters' loyalty to Kyra and whether or not they were capable of doing something to hurt her. I definitely had suspicions about everyone, which is a really fun (and nerve-wracking) feeling for the reader. 

I absolutely loved The Twilight Wife from start to finish and have already been gushing about it to family and friends. If you are in the market for a quick and suspense-filled read, you should pick up The Twilight Wife. You won't regret it! 

Rating 4/5
