Book Review: The Other Woman {Sandie Jones}

Oh do I have a great book for you today!  AND…another VLOG!

Synopsis from Goodreads:

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.

My Thoughts:

(Disclaimer: I will never post spoilers in my reviews HOWEVER the comment section is completely fair game to discuss any and all specifics including spoilers)


I had been waiting for months to read this book and it did not disappoint!  I FLEW through this book.  Short chapters always make me want to keep reading.  Combine them with a fantastic storyline and I was hooked!  This book was AWESOME.  Quick, easy to read, and wonderful.  All in all, it was great and I would absolutely recommend it.

That being said, I do have some criticism.  It’s impossible to talk about what I didn’t love without giving anything away!  I try REALLY hard to keep spoilers off my blog (more on why I do this HERE).  So…I made a video on my new YouTube channel openly discussing my thoughts including spoilers! Enjoy 🙂

*WHY OH WHY does YouTube keep thinking that these are lovely screenshots of me?!?!?*

Bottom Line:

Read it.  Enjoy it.  Devour it.

  1. I finally read this book after being on the library’s wait list for forever, and I think this is one where we have totally different opinions. I found it SOOOOO boring and extremely predictable. I knew right away how it was going to end – maybe I read too many thrillers with endings that have a twist. SPOILER – I knew the MIL was pushing her away so she would break up with Adam because he wasn’t a good guy. And as the book went on, I knew it was Adam who killed the ex-fiance as soon as we heard she died. I think I’m gonna take a break from these thrillers with a twist so that the next one I read won’t be so predictable.
