The Three Mrs. Greys is the latest novel to come from the mind of Shelly Ellis, and it is a twisting mystery and thriller.

Three wives. One husband. We all know that this is a recipe for disaster. Noelle, Diamond, and Vanessa all married the same man, though they didn’t know it at the time. It wasn’t until a tragedy nearly took their husband away that they learned the truth.

Each woman has a different reason to love Cyrus – and a different reason to have wanted revenge for what he did to him. Yet now, with Cyrus’ life on the line, these women must decide which one is the real Mrs. Grey.

“What other secrets had Cyrus kept from Noelle? What other lies had he told?”

The Three Mrs. Greys is arguably the most complex thriller I’ve read in a long time. Even the description of this book barely scratches the surface of it all. It’s one of those novels that immediately sucked me in and left me lost in a web of lies.

I can only imagine how much worse it would have felt for the characters involved. That’s the magic of Shelly Ellis’ writing, and I’ve got to give her so much credit for the story that was woven here. However, I should mention that this thriller leans more towards domestic suspense than pure thriller, which is absolutely fine by me.

On top of being blown away by the complexity of this tale, I was surprised to learn that this is actually the first in a series. I’ve read multiple novels with the double wife plot, but none that launched a series. I have no idea where this is going to lead, but I’ll admit I’m curious to find out.

Thanks to Dafina Books and #NetGalley for making this book available for review. All opinions expressed are my own.
