She’s a total stranger. But she knows who you are…
Suzi did a bad thing. She’s paying for it now, pregnant, scared, and living in an isolated cottage with her jealous husband, Nick.
When Nora moves into the only house nearby, Suzi is delighted to have a friend. So much so that she’s almost tempted to tell Nora her terrible secret. But there’s more to Nora than meets the eye. It’s impossible—does she already know what Suzi did?
Meanwhile, Elle spends her days in her perfect home, fixated on keeping up appearances. But when her husband betrays her, it unravels a secret going all the way back to her childhood. She’ll do whatever it takes to hold on to him, even if that means murder. After all, she’s done it before…
Caught up in their own secrets and lies, these strangers will soon realise they have more in common than they could ever have imagined. When a shocking event brings them together, their lives will never be the same again.

Just when you think you have it figured out, things change! That’s how I felt when I was reading The Other Wife. I thought I knew what was going on and then something happens and I’m totally thrown off!
The novel flips between Suzi, Nora and Elle, but mostly focuses on Suzi and Nora who have just become next door neighbours. Everyone has their secrets, but not all secrets stay secret for very long. I quickly guessed what the relationship was between the three women, but was surprised on what had happened at the end. There is a murder (there’s always a murder!) and I was so torn on who the victim was and who the killer was. I didn’t guess that part right!
3 calculators out of a potential 5. If you are looking for a twisty ride with a couple of unlikeable characters, then you should check this out!
Thank you to Netgallery and Amazon Publishing UK for an ARC in exchange for my honest review.
