FINAL DECISION: I enjoyed this book which starts out slow and then ratchets up the tension a little at a time until it is unbearable by the end and then the big twist comes. Great pacing. The ending was a little too gimmicky to give this a super great rating, but it was an enjoyable one time read.
THE STORY: Dr. Sadie Foust has moved to Maine with her husband and two children. Things are complicated in Maine. She is a substitute parents to her niece by marriage after the apparent suicide of Sadie’s sister-in-law. When her neighbor is murdered, things become even stranger as Sadie begins to question many of the people around her.
OPINION: This is an interesting thinking book. It is told by three characters and their stories are intertwined in unexpected ways. This book has a final twist and it is difficult to explain much of what happens in this book without giving away the twist. The book was like a really entertaining suspense movie. I enjoyed getting to the twist and it was certainly worth the reading time to get there.
WORTH MENTIONING: This is NOT a romance but rather a psychological suspense/thriller.
CONNECTED BOOKS: THE OTHER MRS. is a standalone.
STAR RATING: I give this book 3.5 stars.
