Four I’m so freaking dizzy after so many twists, I felt like the earth moved under me and the rug pulled out from my feet over and over again, get your tickets for crazy train ride, because Mary Kubica wrote another surprising, fast pacing, heart throbbing thriller stars So our facts:WE HAVE A ONE WEIRD FAMILY ON THE TOWN:A dysfunctional family consisted of two little boys (Tate, this family’s the most regular kid and Otto who brought his school a knife to avenge his bullies), Sadie the mother who had troubled past, suffering from bipolar disorder, keeping so many secrets and recently resigned her job from a hospital, Will, flirty husband who probably cheated on his wife moved to Maine to embrace a new family member, Will’s niece Imogen(violent, hostile, loner) who will start to live with them after her mother’s loss.( There is possibility she might have killed her! Yes, great addition to this creepy family!) MORE CREEPY, SNEAKY CHARACTERS PLEASE:Let’s add Camille and the mouse to the equation Camille seems like the stalker of the family who wants to replace Sadie and become “Other Mrs.”, having an affair with Will.(That’s what she says, we still didn’t hear Will’s side of the story till the end of the book.) We still don’t know the poor little girl nicknamed “Mouse”, suffering from her monster stepmother’s abuses (Is she really suffering or is she a pathological liar? We’re still in the dark!) FAMILY MOVES AND MURDER IN DA NEXT HOUSE!As soon as they moved to their house, their neighbor Morgan was murdered Don’t say please: “It’s always the husband!” This time he had an alibi Don’t you think, it’s a coincidence that the murder occurred after the lovely family’s moving to the new house? No, I don’t think so and you shouldn’t, too.INTERESTING FACTS:Police officer Berg suspects Sadie for the murder But Sadie claimed she barely know the victim When we read her POV, we may agree that she is telling the truth But we also read Camille and mouse side of the story and we got confused There are so many missing pieces and unfitted parts of the puzzle Who was telling the truth? Who killed the neighbor? WHY ALL THE CHARACTERS OF THIS BOOK (instead of Tate) IS SO SPOOKY, DREADFUL? The vibes we got for them so suspicious made you felt like a lie detector, any time they start to talk, you start to blip because most things come out their mouths are not true FINAL: So good! Thanks to my spider senses I solved it a little earlier but twist and twist and twist make you whirl your head like a helicopter tour from Vegas to Grand Canyon which meant it is great kind of dizziness! Get ready for surprises and big revelations Nothing as it seems So give your full concentration not be fooled I loved most of Mary Kubica’s smart writing and her great psychological analysis of her characters She is one of the gifted writers “Good Girl” was my favorite book of hers “When The Lights Go Out” was a little disappointment for me So I was hesitated before starting this book But the first pages captured my heart and my mind at the same time and I knew from the beginning, this is right kind of thriller for me Thankfully I didn’t get wrong!Special thanks to Park Row and NetGalley for sending me this great ARC COPY in exchange my honest review.bloginstagramfacebooktwitter I just didn’t buy it! The Other Mrs is a psychological thriller about a wife and husband, the other woman, and murder in a small town Sadie and Will move from Chicago to a small town in Maine looking for a fresh start Having inherited an old house and a creepy niece to care for, they have challenges ahead of them When one of their neighbors is murdered, it hits too close to home, causing Sadie to lose herself in the drama surrounding the victim But all is not what it seems, and Sadie is unknowingly putting her life in danger.The Other Mrs is a fastpaced read with an intriguing premise (I can’t say too much about the plot without giving the twist away) There are multiple POV’s: Sadie, a little girl named Mouse, “The Other Woman,” and Will I figured out the twist early on, but I have read similar storylines and it is one I usually enjoy, so I didn’t mind this aspect as I wasinterested in seeing how a certain issue was going to be revealed I was chugging along and enjoying this until I got to the final chapters This is where the book lost me, as another twist opened up a can of worms that had me asking question after question and shaking my head in sheer disbelief What was a fun read quickly deteriorated into a mess that I couldn’t read my way out of I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Murder on a small coastal island town Many twists, turns, alternating POVs spread out over a generous timeline I felt this one dragged some in the middle but when it went? It zoomed!Thank you to Mary Kubica, HARLEQUIN – Trade Publishing (U.S Canada) Park Row and NetGalley for giving me this book in exchange for an honest review.
