Review: The Other Woman by Sandie Jones


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.


4.5 stars – buddy read with Holly B!

I would just like to state for the record that I officially read too many psychological thrillers and my inner detective will not go away – once again I had it figured out early on so I have to say, I can’t rate thrillers anymore based on the twist. I am unfortunately bound to figure it out😩 (someone please stump me!!). So based on this one, I have to say it was crazy well done (emphasis on the crazy!) in general.

I love love loved to hate these characters – they are nutty in the best way possible. They were truly driving Holly and myself bananas the whole read, and that is the best kind of character for me. If you can create a vivid response from me, whether positive or negative, then job well done!

This one had lightning speed pacing which was FANTASTIC and kept the pages turning. The problem when this happens is that you only scratch the surface with character development, but I didn’t even care and it worked really well here.

A super well done psychological thriller! Thank you to Netgalley, the publisher and the author for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Fabulous review Melisa! So glad you and Holly enjoyed this one. I’m the opposite of you – I always seem to be lost in left field with thrillers so there is always a twisty shock factor for me 😂🤣

    • Thanks so much, Lindsay! I wish wish wish I was more like that – would definitely be more enjoyable to be surprised! I do it subconsciously too so I can’t shut it down😩


  3. So happy you girls love this book! I have it it is on my very long list, that I am reading a publication date order! LOL
    And I’m impressed that you always figure out the twist, I really pretty much never figure it out, but maybe that is to my benefit!😘
