Sinister and unsettling, with a dark, atmospheric heart, Mary Kubica’s new thriller is absolutely captivating. With an elegant, cinematic style, you can easily see why The Other Mrs is being made into a movie. The page-turning plot keeps you glued to the page, while the menace exuding throughout is almost palpable.
Sadie and Will have moved to a tragic, creepy house they’ve unexpected inherited in Maine. It’s a fresh start after a series of unfortunate incidences. But when one of their neighbors is murdered and suspicions swirl around them as the newcomers, Sadie and Will quickly realize it might not be the fresh start they’d envisioned.
The story is told from three different POVs, all eventually winding together. While the reader knows from a certain point what’s really up with the story, the protagonist doesn’t, and that is something that is rarely so successfully done. The suspension mounts as perfect twists keep you unbalanced. Creepy and tragic with a deep theme of mental health running throughout, this is a stunning book you won’t want to miss.
