“The Other Woman” by Sandie Jones is, a story that every woman dreads; Amy’s husband has another woman in his life. That woman is Amy’s mother-in-law, Pammie. Amy, Adam, and Pammie have a caustic relationship, and readers know from the start that Pammie, with a name like that, is someone who will stop at nothing to get her way. Perhaps Amy is in the way.
The characters are complex, and well developed for such a fast moving plot. Readers will love some, hate others, and really love hating them. It is a twisty, compelling psychological thriller full of big surprises. The plot is gripping and the action moves at a whirlwind speed. There are so many unanticipated elements that it is difficult to discuss “events” much without giving away something “shocking,” so readers will just have to find out for themselves.
I received a review copy of “The Other Woman” from Sandie Jones, St Martin’s Press, and NetGalley. It is full of unexpected turns and startling twists. It should be on the “must read” list for every reader of thrillers and suspense. I could not put it down, and finished it in one day.
