Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Thursday is in a polygamous relationship, the second of three wives of Seth, a builder who divides his time between his offices and wives in Seattle and Portland. A nurse who lives in Seattle, Thursday knows Seth's rules against snooping into the lives of the other wives (whom Seth calls Monday and Tuesday), both of whom live in Portland. But with just one night a week with Seth, jealousy gets the better of her, and she manages to identify and meet the others. Soon she's befriending number three, pregnant Hannah, who shows signs of physical abuse, and sharing sorrow about miscarriages with number one, high-powered lawyer Regina. When an argument with Seth turns physical, Thursday ends up in a hospital psych ward trying to determine what is real and what is not, fighting against the medications that keep her in a drugged state. An intriguing plot takes some sharp twists in the search for the elusive truth in this fast-reading domestic thriller.--Michele Leber Copyright 2019 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Thursday , the unreliable narrator of this engrossing psychological thriller set in the Pacific Northwest from Fisher (Folsom), tries to be the perfect wife for Seth , her perfect husband. The only problem is her awareness--and seeming acceptance--of sharing Seth with two other wives who live in another city. Her carefully constructed world begins to unravel when Thursday finds out by chance the name of one wife, Hannah, who's pregnant with Seth's child. With an internet search just a few keystrokes away, Thursday gives in to the impulse to find out about Hannah and the other wife. Her discoveries open up the disturbing possibility that Seth is hiding a dangerous secret that could affect the life of his unborn child. She resolves to meet the other wives and to save Hannah. In doing so, she forms some surprising alliances. Fisher smoothly inserts moments of self-doubt, longing, paranoia, and triumph into her unsettling narrative as she draws the reader into Thursday's conflicted and increasingly complicated life. Suspense fans will be rewarded. Agent: Jane Dystel, Dystel, Goderich & Bourret. (Dec.)"
