Publisher's Summary

An Amazon Charts best seller.

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.

Awesome Book

I lived this book! it had a lot of twists and turns and did not end anything like I thought it would. I was sad I finished it because I would love to have more of it. I miss the characters. Audio voices were excellent.

Confusing Narration, Drawn Out Story

NO SPOILERS! This book is very hard to understand who is speaking. Characters shift in the middle of chapters without an introduction and its very annoying. The story is so so but its more of a mystery drama.

The Other Wife is not what you think

Claire McGowan has written a primer on how to “gaslight” someone. Susie’s husband nIck distrust his wife after finding her caught in an affair. Having “forgiven“ her he unbeknownst to her monitors her every move. Moving her out of London into a remote area, Susie, now pregnant, is left alone during the day with no one around until a woman moves into one of the other cottages next-door. Nora is the new neighbor. She is also the widow of Susie‘s lover. Thinking the child she carries is her husbands, NORA begins a campaign to ingratiate herself with Susie. Finding that NIck has been controlling Susie’s every move via electronic monitor, Nora, while not telling Susie, she encourages her to leave Nick, NORA, thinking she would have a comfortable life with pensions, savings, and inheritance money, is rudely awakened by the lawyer who tells her there are no funds whatsoever. Her husband has been siphoning off funds for years and there’s nothing left. Things escalate and there are many twists and turns. It makes you wonder how well you know those people in whom you have placed trust and love. This was a good read and the audio version was brilliantly performed.

I thought beginning was confusing but then I figured out how everything would end, maybe i listen to too many mysteries

Good listen

This audio book seems obvious at first but manages a few surprises at the end. It was a decent diversion on a long drive!

Impressed

This is a very well crafted story. Complex, flawed characters are well developed. I thoroughly enjoyed and stayed engaged with the book throughout.

Highly Recommend this Twisty Turny Tale!

Awesome story with lots of surprises and a great ending. The narration was spot-on as well, and I'm pretty picky about that.

Forcing myself to finish.

Really terrible story with 3 main characters that are whiny, mean, and boring. I can’t understand the high ranks this book had been given. It’s a predictable poorly written story that has no redeeming value.
