  • Engaging characters and a dark edgy plot

    Content Rating: 18+ Genre: Fiction, Mystery, Thriller, Suspense Published: February 18, 2020, by Park Row The Other Mrs. by Mary Kubica is a story that will keep you guessing to the very end. This psychological thriller delves into murder, suicide, paranoia, and madness with a dark, edgy plot. There are twists and turns, some I figured out, and some that I did not see coming…at all. The story was well written, but I felt the pacing in the middle of the book lagged a bit but then picked up again in the last few chapters. The character development was excellent, I loved them all, even the diabolical ones. The story is told from three points of view, Sadie, Camille, and Mouse, an adorable, sweet six-year-old little girl whom I fell in love with. Sadie is a physician who is married to Will and they have two boys. Camille, who was Sadie’s roommate, met and fell in love with Will before Sadie and Will met. She is the other woman. “If it wasn’t for me, they never would have met. He was mine before he was hers.” “But I couldn’t stay away from Will forever.” After his sister’s death, Will inherits her dark, eerie house located on a remote island in Maine and her daughter Imogen. In an attempt to escape their many problems in Chicago, Will moves his wife Sadie and their two boys determined to make a fresh start. Sadie is not at all happy with the move, and to complicate the situation further, Sadie must deal with Imogen. Imogen is, with good reason, is a broken, angry, disturbed teenager. “I might not have seen her. But there she stands, a morose figure dressed in black.” Life over the next seven weeks starts to fall into place. Sadie, a physician, has found a fulltime job at the local clinic. Will has a part-time as an adjunct professor on the mainland. And their two boys, Otto and Tate, are settling into their schools. When their neighbor, Morgan Baines, is murdered, life in this seemingly idyllic town turns dark and twisted. Unfortunately, that is all I can reveal about this story without spoiling it. The Other Mrs. delivers a story that is filled with suspense and an eeriness that will have you turning on all the lights in your house. But the best part of this book is the multi-level reveals that will keep you turning the pages. I have been looking forward to reading a book by this author for some time, and I was not disappointed. I am looking forward to reading more from Ms. Kubica. ** Please note the quotes in my review are subject to change once the book is published** *** I kindly received this galley by way of NetGalley, Park Row, and Mary Kubica. I was not contacted, asked, or required to leave a review. I received no compensation, financial or otherwise. I have voluntarily read this book, and this review is my honest opinion. ***

  • So much drama and twistiness!!

    The book begins with Will’s sister having had recently committed suicide, leaving behind her 16 year old daughter, Imogen. Will and Sadie decide moving to Maine instead of having Imogen come to Chicago would be best because they are trying to forget some horrible things that had recently happened, including Will having an affair and a bullying incident that had escalated at Otto’s school. And that is just the beginning of a whirlwind of craziness that happens to and around their family. This book is a non-stop drama fest filled with mystery and so many questions that need answering. The Other Mrs. had me staying up late reading and turning the pages as fast as I could. Most of the story is told between three viewpoints; Sadie, Camille, and Mouse, with Will’s voice a bit at the end. I thought that Camille was stalking Sadie, but very quickly you realize that there is something else going on. Sadie keeps having blackouts and her children are quickly coming to hate her because of things that she’s done, but refuses to admit to doing. Then you also have Imogen, who does not get along with Sadie. Is it just typical teenage feelings and anger for losing her mother, or is it something more? Sadie starts doing some investigating of her own since a neighbor said he saw her arguing with Morgan shortly before her death. Sadie’s uncovering of information starts to make her wonder if she’s paranoid or going crazy. Throw in some distrust for her from her coworkers and others who live in the town, and you have even more pressure for Sadie to find out who killed Morgan. The way Mary Kubica has Sadie questioning if she has a stalker, is being paranoid, is actually the killer, or is being gaslite is done masterfully. I did have a small issue towards the end with the police not holding her longer once they had an idea of what was going on with Sadie. But if she had been held, then the end of the book couldn’t have ended the way it did. I highly recommend The Other Mrs. and could easily see this being turned into a movie since it’s so good!

  • A surprising and twisted ending

    "The Other Mrs." tells the story of Sadie, a physician, and Will, a professor, and their sons Otto and Tate. They relocate to Maine after the death of Will's sister, who has left Will her home as well as guardianship of her teenage daughter Imogen. When Morgan, one of their neighbours, is found murdered, the police suspect Sadie was involved. I did not find this story absorbing until about 70% into the book when suddenly the story picked up and caught my interest. The reader learns that Sadie has dissociative identity disorder, which has confused both her and the police. Once details of Morgan's murder are revealed, other concerns fall in place. A very good ending.
