The Other Mrs. by Mary Kubica


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, who is terrified by the thought of a killer in her very own backyard.

But it’s not just Morgan’s death that has Sadie on edge. It’s their eerie old home, with its decrepit decor and creepy attic, which they inherited from Will’s sister after she died unexpectedly. It’s Will’s disturbed teenage niece Imogen, with her dark and threatening presence. And it’s the troubling past that continues to wear at the seams of their family.

As the eyes of suspicion turn toward the new family in town, Sadie is drawn deeper into the mystery of Morgan’s death. 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.

My Review:

Are ready for a twisted treat?

Sadie and her family may seem prefect on the outside, but on the inside tells another story. Sadie tries hard to be a good mother and wife. She very sensitive and paranoid at the same time. When when a next door neighbor gets killed, Sadie anxiety raises. She starts digging around trying to find the killer, but discover a dark past from her husband. Who can she really trust, when Sadie can’t even trust herself?

The Other Mrs. was crazy at times. It dealt a couple point of views that seem confusing at first. I did like the creepy cover to the book also. Did love the twists towards the end of the book. Like any other thriller/mystery it was a slow burn. I liked this read, but not loved it. Still will read more Mary Kubica books, since her twists are nuts. Sadie was not my favorite person in book. She drove me nuts at times. Despite my review, I do hope more read this book and enjoy this better than me.

Happy Reading!!!!
