The Echo Wife by Sarah Gailey (ARC) - Review

❋ ❋ ❋ ❋ ❋ 

I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. 

Martine is a genetically cloned replica made from Evelyn Caldwell’s award-winning research. She’s patient and gentle and obedient. She’s everything Evelyn swore she’d never be. And she’s having an affair with Evelyn’s husband. Now, the cheating bastard is dead, and the Caldwell wives have a mess to clean up. Good thing Evelyn Caldwell is used to getting her hands dirty.

The Echo Wife by Sarah Gailey was one of my most anticipated reads of February and I was absolutely thrilled to be approved for it on NetGalley.  I really lucked out because this is officially one of my favorite reads of 2021 so far.  I loved Sarah Gailey's Upright Women Wanted so my expectations were very high for this.  This clever sci-fi thriller with a dash of dark humor really packs a lot into its 256 pages and it also never feels rushed or clumsy.  I also appreciated that just how character-driven it is and that we stick solely with Evelyn's perspective throughout.  I wouldn't quite say there are a lot of plot twists, but there are many killer character-based revelations.  Let's just say we get deep dive into Evelyn, her past, and her relationship with her clone and it's marvelous to see. 

Overall, I can't recommend Sarah Gailey's The Echo Wife enough.  If you like the sound of Westworld meets The Stepford Wives, I have a feeling you may enjoy this just as much as I did.  I need to get caught up on their previous works including Magic For Liars, River of Teeth, and When We Were Magic as soon as possible.


The Echo Wife by Sarah Gailey is available February 16, 2021 and my review is also on Goodreads.
