HE LOVES YOU: Adam adores Emily. Emily thinks Adam’s perfect, the man she thought she’d never meet.
BUT SHE LOVES YOU NOT: Lurking in the shadows is a rival, a woman who shares a deep bond with the man she loves.
AND SHE’LL STOP AT NOTHING: Emily chose Adam, but she didn’t choose his mother Pammie. 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: Emily gone forever.
The Other Woman will have you questioning her on every page, in Sandie Jones’ chilling psychological suspense about a man, his new girlfriend, and the mother who will not let him go.
Tawney’s Review: I have not been immensely snared by a thriller to the point of binge reading since The Wife Between Us.
The Other Woman is a classic thriller that lures the reader in until the very last page. The characters are fresh and the mystery epic.. why does the mother-n-law hate the bride to be? Emily hasn’t had much luck in the whole relationship thing until she meets the alluring Adam. Boom love at first sight and an upcoming wedding! Yay…or maybe not.
Adam’s Mom Pammie has a mission, to end this romance before a wedding even happens. She was the perfect villain and the reader couldn’t help but loath her. And then their was Adam’s brother James who seemed to be perfect and friendly…until he made a move on Emily!
Emily was a lovable protagonist who you couldn’t help but connect with and root to have the perfect wedding. She was insecure and over analyzed everything but the flaws added to the depth of her character. Pammie was the perfect antagonist. You could feel the love she had for her son and what it would take for her to stop this wedding.
The pace was quick and the plot twists kept coming keeping the reader on a wild rollercoaster of emotions and surprises. The anticipation of the buildup ending made my heart palpitate like a drum and I couldn’t turn the page fast enough. The tension was weaved throughout the book perfectly and I just couldn’t get comfortable because I had to know what would happen next! It was just great to fall into a book enamored by each twist and turn of the page then to realize hours have past once you close it for the last time.
Should you read this? Yes! A riveting thriller that keeps you at the edge of your seat until the very last page.
