My Review: 5/5
This book had me from the first page. It is a fast-paced book that will keep you guessing until the very end.
Annie is in a loveless marriage with David. David is an egotistical jerk whose selfish needs are his only concern. Even though they have a two-year-old son, all hopes for their future with each other is based on David and his plans.
Annie’s life revolves around David and her son, Johnny. Waking up each morning, she enters into the same routine: cooking, cleaning, taking care of the baby. She begins to feel stuck when she starts to have strange, lucid dreams. In her dreams she can do anything…and she takes it to the next level.
I have to admit, I was in complete shock with how this book turned out. It had twist and turns I was not expecting. The book was suspenseful and in parts were a little emotional. Annie is in an abusive relationship, but she is actually a very strong, likeable character.
As a fair warning, there are some scenes that involve the baby that are disturbing. As a mother myself, I found myself almost in tears.
It’s been awhile since I’ve read a really good thriller that kept me guessing until the end. If you’re looking for the same thing, stop searching and pick up The Dream Wife!
