Publisher's Summary

The Other Woman by Sandie Jones is the most twisty, addictive, and unpausable debut audio thriller you'll hear this year.

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 in every chapter.

This program includes a bonus conversation with the author.

The Other Woman is an absorbing thriller with a great twist. A perfect beach read.” (Kristin Hannah, number-one New York Times best-selling author of The Great Alone)

Meh somewhat ok thriller, but the kind where everything unravels at the VERY end

This was ok. I wouldn’t outright recommend it but I wouldn’t prevent someone from getting it if they were really considering it. I like mystery thrillers that unravel throughout the book with hints both subtle and obvious and sufficient time the end for revelations and for the audience to make connections from the other events that occurred throughout the book (“show not tell”). I was entertained enough by this book and there were definitely parts where I really thought I had the twist predicted and I was wrong (not totally but more so than correct) — but not in a super impressive way. Not seeing a twist coming isn’t always stronger than an “obvious” twist that is solidly supported with a web of backstory, clues, and good character development. One strong aspect of the book is the author’s ability to create a mood of anticipation — even whether or not it amounts to anything, I still thought the way these moods were written was decent. I like this narrator from many other books but in this story, her voice was a little too mature for the main character, like Mary Poppins playing a 20-something-year-old — proper, sure...but not quite right. It was, however, the just the right voice for the boyfriend’s mother.

I thought I knew!

It’s one of those audio books that kept me listening into the wee hours of the morning! You think you know, but do you really? I loved this book! Great debut!

Left dumb struck!

Holy mother of... woah, sometimes a book comes around and smacks you upside the head. Dumb struck! Like how did I not see that? Sandier Jones wrote a fantastic mystery. That is what this is... there isn’t much of a thriller feel until those last 15 minutes. But during that brief time your heart will be going wild. I do kind of wish there was more of a thriller aspect to the story but it’s a great think story.

The narrator Clare Corbett was great. She read a fantastic story and, again, the accent is just perfect! I’d definitely listen to more books read by Ms. Corbett.

Spare me the constant blushes!

Well, no one can say I was not warned. There were "hints and allegations", reviews and comments from other readers and listeners. And when I trust my instinct as I consider the purchase an Audible download, if I pause? Baaaad choice. And The Other Woman
and
especially
the
slow
pacing
of
reader
Clare Corbett
was a baaaaad choice.

But, I whinged, it's steamy, sweat down the back of my neck hot in Missouri. It's 103 in my car before A/C kicks in. I'm bored! Bored, bored and more bored! I wanted entertainment, I wanted suspense, I wanted "Gone Girl" Version 2, I wanted
"Passenger" Version 2! And Emily? Those other two novels' protagonists would have given her a slap across the face, kicked her to the floor and stepped over the body.

I am kicking Emily out of my Audible, stepping over her excessively blushing body and walking away.

I have returned 4 books over the past year. I asked my librarian "Why is so much ______ (expletive) published recently"? She leaned forward and whispered "Because nowadays, publishers will publish just about anything". True words! And The Other Woman is a prime example.

Good Book

This is good writing. It's a good book. I just didn't like Ike the main character. She kept making truly dumb choices when she should have run for the hills.
