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.

My Thoughts: It was not difficult to see almost immediately that Jacob Winthrop was a man full of secrets. Soon it became apparent that he was keeping many things from Kyra, or was he lying? Was he keeping her in the dark to protect her, or was something more nefarious happening?

Who is Aiden to Kyra, and why does she keep seeing him in her dreams? Or is she having memories?

Why do many of the island residents seem hesitant when they talk to her? Could the fact of her memory loss be keeping them silent, or have they been kept in the dark, too?

How does an old man named Doug Ingram, whose paintings hang in the library, become an impetus to trying to fill in the gaps in her memory? How does Kyra finally discover the truth?

I raced through this book, not wanting to set it down. So many questions kept popping into my mind, and I figured out certain things right away; but realizing those answers did not spoil the story for me. The Twilight Wife kept me thoroughly engaged, while I waited to see how Kyra would figure things out. A five star read.



    1. It was really good! Although it did remind me of another book I’ve read, it was different enough that I had to work on figuring it all out. I like books in which I’m suspicious of everyone.

      Thanks for stopping by, Elizabeth.


  1. I have this one and hope to read it soon. I’m also reading a book where the husband seems to have kept the wife in the dark about many things. The police ask her questions and she doesn’t seem to know much of anything about the husband. I like books with secrets, but sometimes I ask myself – could I live like that? Or rather ‘how could anyone live like that’? Knowing nothing, I mean.
