Propulsive and addictive, and perfect for fans of You, The Other Mrs. is the twisty new psychological thriller from Mary Kubica, the New York Times best-selling author of The Good Girl.

But it’s not just Morgan’s death that has Sadie on edge. And as the eyes of suspicion turn toward the new family in town, Sadie is drawn deeper into the mystery of what really happened that dark and deadly night. But Sadie must be careful, for the more she discovers about Mrs.Baines, the more she begins to realize just how much she has to lose if the truth ever comes to light.

Critic Reviews

"Kubica ratchets up tension and intrigue in The Other Mrs. Her salacious, thoroughly mysterious characters bear the qualities we all crave in a thriller - seductive, seemingly unknowable, and altogether unpredictable." (Karin Slaughter, New York Times best-selling author of The Last Widow)

"Brilliant! An utterly absorbing tale of deception and subterfuge. Kubica is a master of sleight of hand. Absolutely loved it!" (Liv Constantine, best-selling author of The Last Mrs. Parrish and The Last Time I Saw You)

If you have any doubts Mary Kubica is a master of the genre, this book will change your mind." (Samantha Downing, best-selling author of My Lovely Wife)

"The Other Mrs. is Mary Kubica’s best book yet - which is saying a lot! I tore through the twisty, spine-tinglingly creepy pages." (Sarah Pekkanen, number one New York Times best-selling co-author of An Anonymous Girl)

"Brilliantly propulsive and engrossing, with characters you’ll really care about and twists you won’t see coming, THe Other Mrs. is that rare thing: a thriller with heart." (J. P. Delaney, New York Times best-selling author of The Girl Before)

Awful narrator

Not sure if i can make it through this story. The narrator is terrible. She sounds mechanical and robotic. It's impossible to get immersed in this story as it sounds like your listening to r2d2. Alexa would have done a better job.

Robotic Voice

I only lasted a few minutes. No offense intended but the narrator sounds computer generated.

Didn’t want to get out of my car!!!

I’ve been a huge Mary Kubica fab since THE GOOD GIRL, but this might be my favorite of hers yet. The twists are insane. I thought I knew where Mary was going with this, but then I was COMPLETELY BLOWN AWAY! As always, Mary transported me with her characters -- I started to live with them and feel scared for them. And, the setting was insanely creepy -- visceral. It is Mary's first book set outside of Chicago and she did an immense job with this lonely coastal Maine town. There is a reason it Netflix is so excited about making this a movie!!!!

Ugh, the narration

I'm returning this book. I made it through about 3 chapters before the narration finally drove me crazy. She sounds like a robot child. So awful. I'm bummed because I was really excited about this book. Guess I'm going to get the ebook instead.

Pls change narrator so I can finish the book

Like many of the other reviews, it’s is difficult to get past the horrible robotic narration of the book. I can’t say if this book is good or not bc I cannot get past chapter 2.

Roller coaster

This is a very entertaining book! Figured out one twist early on but not all of them. Fun and dark, held my interest throughout. I liked the narration, I didn’t find it annoying or robotic. This is a great listen and definitely worth the credit.

Didn't know where it was going

Great characters with lots of twists! Never knew who the bad guy was until the end. Satisfied with the ending! Also absolutely no issue with narrator and I'm a narrator snob :)

Absolutely loved it!

I have been a huge fan of Mary Kubica since I picked up Pretty Baby, and she did not disappoint with The Other Mrs.

It is very dark and twisted, and any fans of her previous work are going to love it...it may be my new favorite.

Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for allowing me to read an early copy. I loved it so much that I pre-ordered the audiobook and listened the day it was released. The narrator was excellent, and listening made the story seem even sinister than it did while I read it.

Can't wait for her next book!

Returned!

This author is so hit and miss for me. A couple of books have been so good but others?!

There were no likeable characters in my opinion, for me this is a necessity.

And the story! She returned to the door ”it was open, it was no longer closed, it was no longer locked” or words to that effect. Yes, I got all that from the door being open! It was like this throughout. Well that’s not fair because I had to give up with four hours left so maybe it improved! I find tautology tiresome, and without it I may have enjoyed the story.
