The Other Woman

The Other Woman by Sandie Jones

Thank you to Minotaur Books for my free copy in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

Goodreads Synopsis: A deliciously disturbing, compulsively readable debut domestic suspense–prepare to meet The Other Woman: there’s nothing she won’t do to keep you away from her son…

Emily thinks Adam’s perfect; the man she thought she’d never meet. But lurking in the shadows is a rival; a woman who shares a deep bond with the man she loves.

Emily chose Adam, but she didn’t choose his mother Pammie. There’s nothing a mother wouldn’t do for her son, and now Emily is about to find out just how far Pammie will go to get what she wants: Emily gone forever.

The Other Woman is an addictive, fast-paced psychological thriller about the destructive relationship between Emily, her boyfriend Adam, and his manipulative mother Pammie.

Review: I saw some mixed reviews for this book before starting it so I was a little nervous going in. I was immediately sucked into Pammie’s manipulative behavior and had to find out what was going on. Is Emily crazy? Is Pammie a psychopath? While I had the explanation behind Pammie’s actions figured out somewhat early on, I still really enjoyed this novel. It kept me hooked from start to finish. In other reviews, I saw a few people say that they were frustrated with Emily’s actions, or sometimes lack of action, and I can absolutely see where they’re coming from. She’s one of those characters that you often just want to scream at. But at the same time, I can totally relate to her not wanting to let her mother in law “win.” Not that I have a crazy mother in law by any means, but I know the feeling of not wanting to give up on someone because you feel like it’s giving in to everyone else. Overall, it’s a fast paced domestic thriller that I couldn’t put down without aching to pick it back up and find out how it was going to end.

I would recommend The Other Woman to fans of The Girlfriend by Michelle Frances.
