The Other Woman is a twisty family thriller that throws some surprising deviations into the usual plot.
Emily loves Adam. However, she is not thrilled with his mother, Pammie. Pammie seems to be purposefully throwing roadblocks in Emily’s way. Adam’s younger brother, James, tries and fails to help. Who is the mysterious Rebecca? A former girlfriend of Adam, who Pammie still pines for?
The Other Woman follows a common mother-in-law from hell plotline for at least the first half of the book. To be honest, if I wasn’t reviewing it, I would have put it down at 25% in. But I’m very glad I didn’t. The rollercoaster conclusion alone is worth the time it takes to read the book. Overall, it is a breathtaking read that will make a great movie. 4 stars!
