The Other Woman by Sandie Jones Review!
A deliciously disturbing, compulsively readable debut domestic suspense--prepare to meet The Other Woman: there’s nothing she won’t do to keep you away from her son ...
Emily thinks Adam’s perfect; the man she thought she’d never meet.
But lurking in the shadows is a rival; a woman who shares a deep bond with the man she loves.
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 is an addictive, fast-paced psychological thriller about the destructive relationship between Emily, her boyfriend Adam, and his manipulative mother Pammie.
Sandie Jones has worked as a freelance journalist for over twenty years, and has written for publications including the Sunday Times, Woman’s Weekly and the Daily Mail. She lives in London with her husband and three children. The Other Woman is her debut novel.
“You’re never too old for your mum to care about you,”
― Sandie Jones,
I never had the issue with a mother in law, but in reading this book, I find myself lucky I escaped this problem. That said, The Other Woman is a psychological thriller that has Emily, the book's protagonist, warring with her soon to be mother in law. Pammie has a very close relationship with her son Adam to the point of being obsessive. It seems that everything Emily does is judged by Pammie and Emily comes up lacking. Adam of course loves his mother but their relationship is kind of weird. Not matter what Emily tells him of what Pammie has said or done to her, Adam brushes it off as something that Emily is either taking too personally or it is not true.
I love a good psychological thriller that keeps you wanting more, page after page. The Other Woman definitely delivers on that score. Pammie is the woman you love to hate, I know I did! I highly recommend this debut novel! You won't regret it, a fast-paced read that is sure to please!
I received the book for review purposes only and was not monetarily compensated for review nor do I know the author!
