The Three of Us by Ore Agbaje-Williams @kellyalacey @vintagebooks #bookblogger #AuthorTwt #booktwt #Sharingiscaring #BookReview #PublicationDay

A nice house, a carefree life, a doting husband, a best friend who never leaves your side. What more could you ask for? There’s just one problem: your husband and best friend love you, but they hate each other.

Set over a single day, husband, wife and best friend Temi toe the lines of compromise and betrayal. Told in three parts, three people’s lives, and their visions of themselves and one another begin to slowly unravel, until a startling discovery throws everyone’s integrity into question.

Full of intrigue, idiosyncratic wit and a healthy dose of wealth and snobbery The Three of Us is part-suburban millennial comedy of manners and part-domestic noir that will leave you wondering: whose side are you on?

Book Review by Kelly Lacey

The Three of Us by Ore Agbaje-Williams is a highly addictive and riveting read that will have everyone talking. A sophisticated story of intrigue, sacrifice, and love set over the course of one day, three compelling characters and their tumultuous relationship with each other are at the centre of this masterful debut.

At its heart, this book is a roller coaster ride between the three central characters; the wife, husband and best friend. Each of their stories unfolds differently and contributes to the complex plot in various ways. The plot takes unexpected twists and turns and introduces readers to the unpredictable power struggles between these three individuals as well as the love, pain, betrayal and self-discovery they all go through.

Fans of books such as My Sister the Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite, Such a Fun Age by Kiley Reid, and I May Destroy You will find themselves falling for the wonderfully eccentric wit and dialogue found in The Three of Us. It is an emotionally raw and heart-wrenching novel that deserves a place on every bookshelf. Don’t miss this spectacular debut – The Three of Us will not disappoint.


Ore Agbaje-Williams a British-Nigerian writer and editor from North London who has written for gal—dem, Glamour UK and Wasafiri magazine. Her fiction writing has also been featured on Reflex Fiction. Her first novel, The Three of Us, will be published by Jonathan Cape (UK), Putnam (US) and Penguin Random House Canada in May 2023.
