Book-Inspired Cocktails: “The Wine Between Us”

What do you do when you find yourself in a scary love triangle where you don't know who to trust?

Read between the lies with this week's Pick Your Poison—where we create a cocktail inspired by a recently published mystery, thriller, or crime novel—“The Wine Between Us” cocktail, inspired by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen's psychological thriller, The Wife Between Us!

Twisted and deliciously chilling, Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen's The Wife Between Us exposes the secret complexities of an enviable marriage—and the dangerous truths we ignore in the name of love (available January 2, 2018).

When you read this book, you will make many assumptions.

You will assume you are reading about a jealous ex-wife.

You will assume she is obsessed with her replacement—a beautiful, younger woman who is about to marry the man they both love.

You will assume you know the anatomy of this tangled love triangle.

Assume nothing.

Read between the lies.
