This is absolutely, deliciously my kind of extremely crazy story: imagine your husband replace you with another version of you. What would you do? Scream, cry, call a contract killer, suff ...more
So of course when the cheater ends up dead.. yep dead.. well Evelyn and her clone need to fix this mess he got them all in...and that is when the cray begins.. Oh you thought the cray already happened? No you just wait...more to come..

But, Evelyn did not clone herself.
Her husband Nathan made Martine, to replace Evelyn with a more patient, loving version of his wife...a version without a temperament that can sting like a hornet!
And, then he promptly moved in with her.
So, how did the “cheating bastard” end up dead in his “more compliant” wife’s kitchen? And, why is Martine calling Evelyn for help?
This is an “intelligent” th ...more
The floor was well polished.
Dragging him across it wasn't hard at all.
this is a deliciously entertaining bit of domestic suspense with a SF cherry on top.
evelyn caldwell is a brilliant scientist whose award-winning advances in cloning technology have won her great renown—she has risen to the very top of a male-dominated field, and the method she developed to program personality traits into clones bears her name. however, her professional success has been at the expense of her pe ...more
I see it has a cover now! Love it!
The Echo Wife reminds me of why I read in times like this. First of all, let me mention, this may be the earliest I have ever read a book. It's so early, the cover has not been released yet, and the synopsis is brief. I cannot wait to see the cover!
The Echo Wife will be published on February 16, 2021, and mark your calendars. I promise you won’t want to miss it. It’s the most unique domestic suspense story I think I’ve ever read. It tak ...more

Even worse than that, she receives a frantic call from Martine one day that has her rushing to the home of her soon to be ex-husband, only to find him dead...and ...more

Oh wow, you really brought this full circle, didn't you, Sarah Gailey?! You clever, clever, clever human.
I read the majority of The Echo Wife in one sitting. There are a lot of great themes and ideas to think about with this one. I could not put it down!
This is the first novel I have read by Sarah Gailey, but absolutely will not be the last. I have already added three of their other books to my TBR.
This novel follows Evelyn Caldwell, who is an award-winning research scien ...more
This book has a dystopian feel and is purely science fiction, at least at this time!!!
I didn’t feel the fast pace of a thriller. It was character driven and we are being told the story by Evelyn, a supposedly brilliant scientist who is, at the beginning of the book, being given an award for her research into cloning humans.
She is ...more
I don’t think this is a bad book. In fact, it has many rave reviews that I can appreciate, and I picture this being well-liked folks who enjoying meandering in the headspaces of tortured protagonists. It also carries several interesting themes for readers to unpack, not the least of which include questions of programming versus free will, and women’s autonomy—of mind and body, what we say and what we do, how we carry ourselves, the wa ...more

As Evelyn and Martine are drawn together to clean up a mess, both women learn from each other and maybe develop a friendship of sorts.
This one made me ponder the future ...more
I had high hopes going into this, and I did enjoy misanthropic narrator Evelyn for a while, but to bring back a classic line from Emily, this book has more plot holes than fishnet stockings and it's a frustrating read. ...more
Evelyn Caldwell’s husband has been having an affair — with Evelyn Caldwell - or, to be exact, with Martine, a genetically cloned replica made from Evelyn’s own award-winning research. After a day that begins with a confrontation between Evelyn an ...more

The Echo Wife is in many ways a book about cycles of pain and abuse in ...more
The Echo Wife is character focused, domestic fiction with incidental Sci-Fi elements, akin to The Time Traveller's Wife. Cloning is used as a means to incorporate a cheating husband and a second "wife" that doesn't legally exist. It's slow to start (with the "reveal" in the blurb) but has some interesting themes drawing parallels to the reality of domestic abuse, post-marriage relationship breakdown, how having c ...more
The Echo Wife is what you get when a cheating husband steals research and clones his wife, then makes a life with the clone. How far outside of regular scientific ethics did he go? Do ethics even apply to clones?
Martine, the “new wife,” eventually snaps and murders the husband in self defense, at which point Evelyn has to get involved to protect her research and her ow ...more
I seriously love this story. While it took a few chapters for me to calibrate with the book, one I was it became an incredible journey. This book really has it all: good, evil, suspense, stomach-summer salts, rage and quiet contemplation. It also has a sense of love that you don’t notice from the surface.
Evelyn and Nathan had been married a decade when Nathan threw in the towel. However, not one to let the grass grow, he created a new and improved Evelyn; a clone he has named Mart ...more

Coming February 16, 2021
This is a book I requested from NetGalley and the publisher and the review is voluntary.
I was very excited to see Sarah Gailey had a new book out, I loved all her hippo riding books! Fantastic! This one was fantastic also but in a totally different direction.
This book deals with clones, cloning, and ethics involved with it in a distant way. Evelyn is our gal of the story. She is a brilliant scientist who is an a ...more
This book definitely came out of left field for me because I was shocked by how easily I could get into the story and be thoroughly entertained. While I wasn't completely enthralled that this was just going to be a domestic thriller with a slight twist, I'm glad The Echo Wife went a little bit above and beyond to give an original, new, and exciting experience.
If you thought Ma ...more
