My thanks to the publishers for my copy of this book

What's it all about..

When Emily meets Adam she knows he is the One.

That together they can deal with anything that is thrown at them.

But lurking in the shadows is another woman, Pammie.

Emily chose Adam, but she didn’t choose his mother.

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...

My thoughts about it..

Well, this one took me by surprise !

This is a real roller coaster of a story which starts off with cracking prologue. And then its fairly innocuous beginning lulls you into a false sense of security, but don't be fooled as very soon the story grips like a vice and it quickly becomes completely addictive reading. I'm only sorry that's it's languished on my book shelf for a few months, but, as they say, every cloud has a silver lining, and because of my tardiness, I'm in time to share my thoughts about The Other Woman just as the book has its US publication 😉

I'm not saying anything about the plot except to share the teaser of an explanation which is from the blurb at the back of the book. All I will say is that I devoured The Other Woman in less than half a day as I quite simply couldn't put it down, always wanting to read just a little bit more in order to find out just what was going on in the life of Emily and Adam, and that of the other woman in Adam's life, namely his mother, Pammie. And believe me , there's plenty going on...

Beautifully written from start to finish, this fast paced domestic noir has a dramatic plot which is as tight as a bowstring, it's no surprise that this debut novel was highly sought after by several publishers. If you want an absolute corker of a thriller then my advise is to read this without spoilers, that way you'll be as stunned as I was when the final denouement comes. 

Without doubt one of my reads of the summer..
