!!> KINDLE ❤ The Other Mrs. ❧ Author Mary Kubica – Higo2cam.info


The Other Mrs. Murder on a small coastal island town Many twists, turns, alternating POVs spread out over a generous timeline I felt this one dragged some in the middle but when it went It zoomed Thank you to Mary Kubica, HARLEQUIN Trade Publishing U.S Canada Park Row and NetGalley for giving me this book in exchange for an honest review. 4 stars rounded down to 4 because of some believability issues, but it s great entertainment.This was a fast paced, quick read that had a deeper plot than I thought when I began the book I have read Ms.Kubica before and I knew I was in for a good ride From the blurb for the book you will know this Sadie and Will Foust have only just moved their family from bustling Chicago to small town Maine when their neighbor, Morgan Baines, is found dead in her home The murder rocks their tiny coastal island, but no one is shaken than Sadie, who is terrified by the thought of a killer in her very own backyard.But it s not just Morgan s death that has Sadie on edge It s their eerie old home, with its decrepit decor and creepy attic, which they inherited from Will s sister after she died unexpectedly It s Will s disturbed teenage niece Imogen, with her dark and threatening presence And it s the troubling past that continues to wear at the seams of their family I really enjoyed that blurb because it doesn t give anything away about the real threads that are running through this story.Sadie never wanted to move to Maine, she s a city girl, she enjoyed the fast pace of the Chicago hospital Emergency Room Here she is left to deal with the mundane, flu, arthritis, sprains and breaks But she s willing to put up with living in the creepy house with the almost silent, often foul mouthed teen who comes along with the inheritance Anything for a fresh start.Sadie worries about her oldest son, Otto, who has a history of being bullied He just never seems to fit in anywhere Her youngest son, Tate, seems to love it so far, the freedom of running with his dogs in the backyard, his new school, he is adapting well Sadie still hasn t forgiven Will for the affair that he admitted to before they left Chicago, they have an icy relationship She still cringes at his touches even though he seems to be doing all he can to make this new move work He is a professor with limited classes to teach so he is basically the stay at home dad ferrying their young son Tate to and from classes and being there to cook, clean, etc so Sadie can come home to a quiet house and a warm dinner.The murder of their neighbor Morgan, whom Sadie hasn t met throws everyone in the family and their small town into a frenzy Will knew her from talking to her in the neighborhood There are some conflicting stories from their neighbors however, they seem to feel that Sadie did know Morgan, that they saw them fighting when they were outside Sadie denies this vehemently.When talking about the murder Sadie says to Will as they are watching Jeffrey Baines, the murder victim s husband, returning home from abroad Do you think he did it When Will doesn t answer my question, I hear myself mutter, It s always the husband This time his reply is quick He was out of the country Sadie Why would you think he had anything to do with this It s just, if you watch the news long enough, that s the way it seems to be Unhappy husbands kill their wives I will leave you to ponder that Don t worry it s not a spoiler because the truth is something you will never guess, well at least I didn t So many questions, lots of red herrings I missed some and by 25% into the story I was completely hooked Pick up this thriller that gets it all right, you won t be disappointed.I received an ARC of this novel from the publisher through Edelweiss.This book is set to publish on February 18, 2020 3.5 StarsI love a setting with a creepy house.Sadie and Will have just moved their family into a house they inherited on a small island in Maine.It smells musty, its dark and dreary with paneling and heavy drapery That is not all though The house has a disturbing history and it threatens to unravel the new occupants.Things aren t going well in the new neighborhood Seems that murder is in the air.I was engrossed in the first third of the novel with the suspense and intriguing characters I wanted to love this book, but the direction it took ultimately fizzled a bit for me.My third by the author and not my favorite, I was looking for a thrilling read than what it turned out to be for me You may want to give it a try, others have loved it.Thanks to NG publisher for my review copy OUT on 2 18 2019 I just didn t buy it Full review to come.Merry Christmas It was fun reading The Other Mrs and trying to figure out just what was going on and who was doing what We have three main narrators for the story with another narrator joining the others, towards the end of the book Sadie, Camille, and Mouse tell their stories, with little Mouse grabbing my heart Sadie is a doctor who, with her husband and two sons, moves into her late sister in laws house Sadie and her husband, Will, also become the custodians of Will s sixteen year old niece, Imogene, a disturbed, sullen goth teenager, whose communication skills are sorely lacking Camille is a former roommate of Sadie, who feels like Sadie stole Will from her and Camille is going to fix that situation She is actively stalking Sadie and Will and gives the indication that she ll do anything to make Will hers Mouse is a creative, darling little six year old whose widowed dad marries a horrible, cruel woman There are brief moments of animal and child abuse during Mouse s narration and she was my favorite character in this story Not long after Sadie and her family move into her SIL s house, a SIL who committed suicide, a nearby neighbor is brutally murdered Sadie has memory lapses and both her son Otto and Imogene have acted violently, causing Sadie to wonder if the murderer could be someone in her household As the story progressed, there were some twists that I figured out but others that kept me stumped for most of the book For me this was a fun buddy read and I want to thank Park Row HarperCollins and Edelweiss for this ARC.
