Publisher's Summary

Don't miss the stunning new novel from Cathy Kelly about sisterhood, love and friendship - The Wedding Party is available to pre-order now! 

Three women. Three secrets. Three tangled lives....

Sid wears her independence like armour. So when she strikes up a rare connection with unlucky-in-love Finn, they are both determined to prove that men and women can just be friends. Can't they?

Marin has the perfect home, attentive husband, two beloved children - and a secret addiction to designer clothes. She knows she has it all, so why can't she stop comparing herself to other women?

Bea believes that we all have one love story - and she's had hers. Now her life centres around her son, Luke, and her support group of fierce single women. But there's something that she can't tell anyone....

With her inimitable warmth and wisdom, Cathy Kelly shows us that in the messy reality of marriage, family and romance, sometimes it's the women in our lives who hold us together.

Interesting characters

I looked forward to having time in my day to listen. I especially liked and identified with one of the main characters. Sometimes the girl's voices were too similar and I wasn't sure who was speaking.

Enjoyable!

My usual genre is crime fiction. Nevertheless, I really enjoyed this. It’s a good story, well written. The characters are well drawn and the women strong. Aoife McMahon’s narration was faultless and a joy to listen to as always. I will try other books by this author.

Too many characters!

There was not enough initial character development for me to care about any of them. They all merged into one, I gave up on chapter 6.

Disappointing

This book was way too much like a Marianne Keys. I tired of it early on even though I live MK’s books!

Ok but not the best

I found this one disappointing compared to Cathy Kelly’s other books. She has a definite insight into a womens psychology but it was a bit boring. Not the best.

Another fantastic Cathy Kelly story

Cathy Kelly is one of my favourite Irish authors. Having her latest novel read by Aoife McMahon with her lilting Irish accent, has added an extra layer of depth to another wonderful Irish story. In “Other Women”, Ms Kelly manages to address some very difficult topics with sensitivity and respect. I highly recommend “Other Women”- especially to other women! 😉

Deceptively good!

I'll admit it took maybe the first 3rd of the book for me to really get into it. I found it a bit disorienting with the fast pace of the narrator (which either got better or I got used to it) and the sheer amount of characters/names thrown around of characters that relate to one of the 3 main ladies. And even after I got into it a bit more, there would be a character who I'd think "wait, pause, who is this in relation to Sid/Marran/Bee??"
But overall it was enjoyable and once the stories started interconnecting I felt more and more compelled to find out how it all ends.
Which was extremely satisfying!! Nate and Marren's mother drove me insane!! So glad at least one of them got what was coming to them!!

Disappointing

Terribly boring. Nothing happens. Predictable. Can’t believe I listened until the end! Narration was great.

Excellent fiction

Enjoyable from beginning to end. Interesting and relatable female characters. Beautiful narrated. Occasionally tricky to distinguish between What is a thought of a character and what is actually said by the character.
