If you stay up-to-date with my reviews, you may have noticed that I have been on a hiatus from writing, though I have continued to maintain my presence on Instagram. It has been two months to this date since I have written a review and I am excited to get started again. Though I have read some great books (which you can find on my Book List), I have not had the time or inspiration to write. The itch to write started a few weeks ago, but I am just now in the right headspace to put words to paper (in this case words to website). I wanted to give a review on a book that really stood out to me and The Other Mrs. was that perfect one. I was fortunate enough to have the publisher, Harlequin Publishing, send me this book to read and review a few months ago. And as you will come to find later on in this post, I genuinely could not put The Other Mrs. down, so I knew it had to be the first book to review coming back from my temporary blog hiatus.
The Other Mrs. is a seductive and thrilling story of a woman trying to come to terms with the recent unexpected events in her life. Sadie and Will Foust have only just moved their family from bustling Chicago to small-town Maine when their neighbor Morgan Baines is found dead in her home. The murder rocks their tiny coastal island, but no one is more shaken than Sadie. But it’s not just Morgan’s death that has Sadie on edge. And as the eyes of suspicion turn toward the new family in town, Sadie is drawn deeper into the mystery of what really happened that dark and deadly night. But Sadie must be careful, for the more she discovers about Mrs. Baines, the more she begins to realize just how much she has to lose if the truth ever comes to light.
The Other Mrs. was a true psychological thriller as it including mystery, suspense, and psychology, similar to The Woman in the Window and Gone Girl. There were twists and turns that were completely unexpected and only was it right before the twist happened that I had the slightest idea of what would occur. The anticipation of knowing what would happen next kept me quickly turning the pages, which I finished it in two days. Not only did the plot thicken with each chapter, but there were layers to each character that just kept unfolding. For those seeking a delicious and twisted story The Other Mrs. is the best choice for your next read. Page after page I was quickly entranced by this thrilling and seductive story, and I have no doubts you will be too.
