    Murder on a small coastal island town. Many twists, turns, alternating POVs spread out over a generous timeline. I felt this one dragged some in the middle but when it went? It zoomed!Thank you to Mary Kubica, HARLEQUIN – Trade Publishing (U.S. & Canada) Park Row and NetGalley for giving me this book in exchange for an honest review.

    3.5 StarsI love a setting with a creepy house.Sadie and Will have just moved their family into a house they inherited on a small island in Maine.It smells musty, its dark and dreary with paneling and heavy drapery. That is not all though- The house has a disturbing history and it threatens to unravel the new occupants.Things aren't going well in the new neighborhood. Seems that murder is in the air.I was engrossed in the first third of the novel ...

    Mary Kubica's latest psychological thriller is beautifully written, a dark, tense and unsettling novel of murder and madness. Sadie, a doctor and her professor husband, Will, move from Chicago to a small coastal town in Maine with their two children, looking for a new start after marital problems. Will has inherited an old, dilapidated and creepy house from his sister, who committed suicide in the house. They are now guardians to his niece, Imoge...

    It was fun reading The Other Mrs and trying to figure out just what was going on and who was doing what. We have three main narrators for the story with another narrator joining the others, towards the end of the book. Sadie, Camille, and Mouse tell their stories, with little Mouse grabbing my heart. Sadie is a doctor who, with her husband and two sons, moves into her late sister-in-laws house. Sadie and her husband, Will, also become the custodi...

    "If it wasn't for you, I said, leaning in to whisper the words in his ear, I'd be dead."A lot of twists and turns in The Other Mrs. takes readers on a thrilling ride. Within the first three chapters, Sadie and her family move into her husband's sister's house in Maine to take guardianship of her husband's niece because his sister committed suicide. (Yes, they move into the house his sister killed herself in.) Sadie thinks about how her husband w...

    Imagine inheriting a house located on an island off the coast of Maine. A new home can offer so much, an escape from some painful happenings in one's life, a new beginning, a time to restart a life that seems to have gone haywire.For Sadie, a doctor, her husband Will, a professor, and their children it seemed like perhaps exactly what they needed. In inheriting the house from Will's deceased sister, a victim of suicide, they also take on the resp...

    Mary Kubica just keeps 'em coming! Another great thriller full of surprises and lots of tension. Sadie and her husband Will, and two sons, Otto and Tate, move to Maine after Will's sister commits suicide. It was a good time to move because the family was troubled: Sadie, a doctor, has resigned her job at the hospital after some trouble there; Will, a teacher, was a ladies' man who Sadie thinks has had an affair; Otto was being bullied at school. ...

    I’ve read a few book by Mary Kubica before and so am delightful to have received this ARC. I did enjoy this psychological thriller although I have one to two reservations. Will Foust inherits a house and a niece (Imogen, who he knows little about) from his sister, Alice. She had committed suicide, unable to live with the pain of fibromyalgia anymore. Will his doctor wife Sadie and their two boys Otto and Tate, relocate from Chicago to an island...

    I'm wavering between a 4.5/5 star review. For now I'll leave it at 5 because that's what I'm feeling for the moment. This is my first Mary Kubica book, although I've been wanting to give her a try for years now. I'm always seeing mixed reviews for her books so I've been putting off reading her for awhile. I admit that at the beginning of this book it started off promising with a gloomy start to the story. Sadie and Matt just inherited a house in ...

    Oh my gosh, y'all! I got a sneak peek at ARC of THE OTHER MRS. and devoured it during a trans-Atlantic flight. So twisty, I couldn't put it down.The story follows Sadie, a working-mom whose family relocates to an island off Maine's coast due to inheriting her sister-in-law's house and becoming guardian to their niece. The Frankenstein-family is semi-trapped on said island due to winter's stormy conditions. As the weather deteriorates, so does Sad...

    This thriller has a very gothic and suspenseful atmosphere. The writer’s details brought the old, creepy and unwelcoming house to life. And having it set on a small island, with limited access, made the book even more alluring. I love old houses and the ocean!Imogen was one of the most interesting characters for me...not exactly likable most of the time...but very unique and intriguing. Who doesn’t love a disresctful, hateful and rude teenage...

    It looks like I’m not alone in figuring out early on what I imagine was to be a major plot twist. A credit to Kubica's writing skills is that this didn’t impact in any way how much I enjoyed this dark, domestic thriller.Highly recommend!ARC provided by NetGalley

    4.5 Stars!Mary Kubica is back and better than ever with her 2020 release - The Other Mrs. Told in three alternative POV's, we meet Sadie, a doctor and loving wife (despite her husband's affair), Camille - the other woman, an Mouse - a young girl struggling to deal with a tough stepmom. Each of these characters has such a distinct voice, it's hard to imagine they were all written by the same author - but this is the true beauty of a Kubica novel!F...

    Oh my, what a fabulous spine tingling domestic psyche thriller this was. I loved it, and couldn’t of chosen to read it at a better time than with Halloween approaching in just a few weeks! Mary Kubica has once again hit another ball out of the park. The Other Mrs. is sooo twisted and creepy I couldn’t put it down! What made this story feel so real was how Mary was inspired to write from her own experience surrounding mental illness, taking he...

    A very twisty novel that'll keep new psychological thriller fans guessing, but might be too predictable for seasoned readers. Many twists are just very common tropes in this genre— which generally wouldn't be an issue, but Mary Kubica practically spells it out for you when it really should be more nuanced until the big reveal.Kind of off topic, but this book also reminded me of a very important pet fact: guinea pigs are extremely social and nee...

    The Other Mrs was a pretty big disappointment for me. Yes it did end up to have a redeeming quality in the end but the bad far out weighted the good. Let me start by saying that it has the bones of a knock out story but it just didn't deliver. Being told through 3 female pOVs, a 4th coming in at the end, the 3 female characters all very different on every level and that was interesting because you had no idea who to believe or which way the story...

    A dead body, a remote island, a spooky house, and plenty of questionable characters...what's not to love here? Suspicions swirl off the page, and the truth is revealed in twisty increments that will have you constantly rethinking who is the killer. Kubica cranks it up a notch with this one, a psychological thriller that will mess with your mind.

    I’m not sure about this book. I wanted to like it so much better than I did. I loved Pretty Baby by Mary Kubrick but this one was just ok. I felt it dragged in spots and I found myself skimming past the “Mouse” chapters. There was a twist at the end I did not see coming at all! Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for this complimentary book. All opinions expressed are my own.
