Propulsive and addictive, The Other Mrs. is the twisty new psychological thriller from Mary Kubica, the New York Timesbestselling author of The Good Girl
She tried to run, but she can’t escape the other Mrs.
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.
This was a thrilling read!
The story was very fast paced. It progressed quickly, with many twists. The story had three alternating narratives. Sadie was the main narrative. There was also Camille, a woman who was having an affair with Sadie’s husband. The third one was Mouse, a six year old girl.
I can’t say much about this book without spoiling the ending. It was cleverly written. At first, I didn’t like the big revelation, once I realized what was going on. However, when I looked back on the whole story I realized how carefully everything was written so the answers were right there in the story all along.
I really enjoyed this book!
