Book: The Other Woman by Sandie Jones
Genre: Thriller, Fiction, Suspense
Thoughts/Review: The Other Woman is about Emily, who is in love with her boyfriend, Adam, and just wants to be with him, happily. Although they love each other, there is a problem, and that problem is his mother, Pammie, who doesn’t like Emily. Pammies tries to do whatever she can to make Emily leave her son, and this book shows their constant battle to get Adam on their side.
I really enjoyed this book, and found it interesting from the start. I was surprised by the twist at the end, and liked how it ended. I didn’t like a few of the characters, Adam included. I found myself becoming frustrated at how he behaved, in a toxic manner, and also at how Emily made decisions surrounding him. I think she deserved a lot better, but she was very caught up in her love for him, that she was blinded to a lot of his toxic behaviour. When Pammie was introduced in the beginning, I had the sense that she was just being an overprotective mother, and wanted the best for Adam, but that quickly changed, as her behaviour became more odd throughout the book. I won’t ruin the ending, but it was really well written and wrapped up. So much happens in this book, and there were characters that I hated in the beginning, but began to love in the end. I don’t think I’ve read very many books that have done that before, where the character is shown to be very different from what I expected. Overall, it was a pretty quick, fun read, and I’m excited for the next mystery I read!
