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.

For fans of Gone Girl and that genre, this book is sure to pique your interest and with good reason! I have found myself gravitating towards the suspenseful genre of book and this one was quite satisfying. Initially quite confusing, each new piece of the puzzle began slotting itself together until everything came together. There were no huge and shocking surprises yet I was quite surprised at what the truth behind the story was even though it really made sense and there had been hints along the way.
I had to admire Kyra and her tenacity. Despite quite debilitating physical symptoms caused by her accident, she kept on searching to regain her memory and to ultimately find out the truth. I can only imagine how exhausting and terrifying it would be to lose one's memory so completely and to forget exactly who you were.
The depths of the deceptions and the lengths taken by some in this story are quite chilling. I find myself wondering if it is possible and I suppose that for the most devious of us, it definitely would be.
My only complaint is that this story came together way too quickly in the end. Too quickly for my liking at least. I wish that it could have continued on as I really enjoyed the writing style and plot.
