The Other Mrs. by Mary Kubica


A woman is drawn into a mysterious web of secrets in this twisty whodunnit from New York Times bestselling author Mary Kubica

Sadie and Will Foust have only just moved their family from bustling Chicago to a coastal island in 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. by Mary Kubica


Sadie and her family recently moved to a small island town in Maine. Their neighbor is killed in her home, and everyone on the island is on edge. Sadie’s family is under suspicion, and she is determined to find out what happened.

The Other Mrs. is an atmospheric and twisty psychological thriller. The story is told with alternating points of view – Sadie, Camille, and Mouse. The viewpoints are all female, but very different.

I enjoyed the writing style and eerie atmosphere of this book, but wasn’t wowed with the story. I imagine occasional readers of this genre will be highly entertained, but more seasoned readers of domestic thrillers may be a bit let down. Dark, suspenseful, and twisty.

I received a digital copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
