Description

In this “enthralling, unforgettable” (Gregg Olsen, #1 New York Times bestselling author) psychological suspense novel, a woman suffering from memory loss begins to wonder just how much she can trust the people who claim to love her—perfect for fans of the page-turning thrillers by Robyn Harding and Lisa Jewell.

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 neighbors on the island where she lives with her devoted husband.
But when Kyra begins having visions—or are they memories?—of a rocky marriage, broken promises, and cryptic relationships with the island residents she believes to be her friends, she can’t help but wonder if her new life is all a carefully constructed lie.
As Kyra races to uncover her past, it soon becomes clear that the truth is a terrifying nightmare. “Filled with buried secrets and unexpected turns, The Twilight Wife is a twisty, edge of your seat story that’s impossible to put down” (Kimberly Belle, author of The Marriage Lie).

Editorial Reviews

Praise for THE TWILIGHT WIFE:
“An enthralling, unforgettable novel that defies readers to stop turning the pages.” 

Gregg Olsen, #1 New York Times bestselling author

“[A] harrowing plot that reveals memory to be both unreliable and impossible to fully wash away. . . . Kyra is a believable, empathetic protagonist, and Banner’s ability to maintain tension while teasing out the truth of her hazy past will keep readers engaged.”

Publishers Weekly

"Suspense and mystery simmer on every page of A.J. Banner’s latest novel, The Twilight Wife. With a wonderfully clever plot; a sympathetic and skillfully drawn point-of-view character; a powerful sense of place; and rich prose that is, at times, almost hauntingly evocative; The Twilight Wife is everything readers could hope for, whether they are looking for psychological suspense, mystery, or simply a beautifully-told story. A real treat." 

James Hankins, Amazon #1 bestselling author of The Prettiest One

"After a diving accident, a woman's memory returns in cryptic and terrifying flashes in A. J. Banner's latest thriller. Filled with buried secrets and unexpected turns, The Twilight Wife is a twisty, edge-of-your-seat story that's impossible to put down."

Kimberly Belle, author of The Marriage Lie

"A haunting tale about one woman's struggle to remember the past, the husband she is supposed to love, and the accident that changed everything. This mesmerizing fast-paced psychological thriller is full of chilling twists and turns. I couldn't put it down!"

Karen Katchur, author of The Secrets of Lake Road and The Sisters of Blue Mountain

"AJ Banner's The Twilight Wife is an intensely suspenseful, diamond-sharp romantic thriller about a woman who has lost her memory and the wild, painful path back to her true self. Every page is packed with both peril and exquisite writing, and the novel reads like a wholly unique cross between Somewhere in Time and Memento. You won't be able to put it down!"

David Bell, author of Since She Went Away

“With spellbinding narration and brilliant pacing, The Twilight Wife is not to be missed. A. J. Banner is a truly gifted storyteller!”

Wendy Walker, USA Today bestselling author of All Is Not Forgotten

"Banner captures the anxiety of a lost memory and haunted past in this taut psychological thriller, beautifully set on a remote island in the Pacific Northwest."
