Publisher's Summary

Don't miss the stunning new novel from Cathy Kelly about sisterhood, love and friendship - The Wedding Party is available to pre-order now! 

Three women. Three secrets. Three tangled lives....

Sid wears her independence like armour. So when she strikes up a rare connection with unlucky-in-love Finn, they are both determined to prove that men and women can just be friends. Can't they?

Marin has the perfect home, attentive husband, two beloved children - and a secret addiction to designer clothes. She knows she has it all, so why can't she stop comparing herself to other women?

Bea believes that we all have one love story - and she's had hers. Now her life centres around her son, Luke, and her support group of fierce single women. But there's something that she can't tell anyone....

With her inimitable warmth and wisdom, Cathy Kelly shows us that in the messy reality of marriage, family and romance, sometimes it's the women in our lives who hold us together.

Another fantastic Cathy Kelly story

Cathy Kelly is one of my favourite Irish authors. Having her latest novel read by Aoife McMahon with her lilting Irish accent, has added an extra layer of depth to another wonderful Irish story. In “Other Women”, Ms Kelly manages to address some very difficult topics with sensitivity and respect. I highly recommend “Other Women”- especially to other women! 😉

Deceptively good!

I'll admit it took maybe the first 3rd of the book for me to really get into it. I found it a bit disorienting with the fast pace of the narrator (which either got better or I got used to it) and the sheer amount of characters/names thrown around of characters that relate to one of the 3 main ladies. And even after I got into it a bit more, there would be a character who I'd think "wait, pause, who is this in relation to Sid/Marran/Bee??"
But overall it was enjoyable and once the stories started interconnecting I felt more and more compelled to find out how it all ends.
Which was extremely satisfying!! Nate and Marren's mother drove me insane!! So glad at least one of them got what was coming to them!!

Couldn't get into it

As a seasoned listener it's few books that don't grab my attention, but this one was soporific and dull. With multiple characters to get to know the story was not enhanced by it's narration - I couldn't keep clear in my head who was who as the female characters with their different storylines all sounded the same! Not for me I'm afriaid.

Great story and brilliant reading

Another fabulous story from Cathy Kelly - she never disappoints and this one kept me gripped to the end.
Aoife McMahon is a brilliant narrator- I could listen to her read the telephone directory (not that we have them any more). She really made the story come to life.

We all need other women!

An honest and fun account of looking into other people’s lives … usually when we go home and close our door, no one knows what goes on ….

Worth a skip

These women are so dull and negative, if you want to read a book that drags and leans into characters feeling sorry for themselves then yes, you’ll love it.

It’s a no from me.
