Sadie and Will Foust have only just moved their family from bustling Chicago to a coastal island in Maine when their neighbor Morgan Baines is found dead in her home. The murder rocks their tiny coastal island, but no one is more shaken than Sadie.

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.

I honestly cannot believe all the positive reviews here! I’ve read 2 others by Kubica, both several years ago. The Good Girl, which I liked, and Pretty Baby which I remember as being very odd, but not terrible. But this was just howlingly bad! From the completely see-through “thriller” plot, to the cardboard cutout characters, extremely stilted dialogue, and just generally hackneyed language throughout. I particularly disliked the “Mouse” chapters, and started skipping those altogether. You get the point quickly enough, without slogging through all the details. Finally, so much of the denouement requires suspension of disbelief, it just became laughable.

If you aren’t a reader, make this your one book to put beside your bed — send a copy to your mom, your aunt and your old babysitter. 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. I definitely had to take some HGTV breaks towards the end of this book because I was so creeped out. There is a reason it Netflix is so excited about making this a movie!!!!

The Other Mrs. is a psychological thriller with a murder mystery at the core. Dr. Sadie Faust and her husband Will, a professor, relocate to Maine when Will inherits his sister’s home. Will’s sister Alice, has committed suicide, leaving her old home, and her sixteen-year-old daughter Imogene behind. Maine is a huge adjustment, especially given the home is located on an island, the mainland only reachable by ferry. It’s winter and storms are common. Queue claustrophobic atmosphere. I’m not a fan of winter, but I do love reading books set during the season.

And then there is Imogene—bitter and resentful—who does everything in her power to make Sadie feel threatened and unwelcome. Sadie and Will have two other children, Otto, fourteen and awkward, and Tate, grade school age and a bundle of energy. Shortly after the Faust family moves into their new home, a neighbor woman is murdered. Thus, begins the mystery of who killed her and why.

The story unfolds through the viewpoints of three different characters—Sadie, a woman named Camille, and a young girl called Mouse. Chapters alternate between them, some more engrossing than others. There were several chapters mid-point where the story dragged, and I grew weary of Camille and Mouse’s narration (mostly because it’s told rather than shown), but Sadie’s chapters kept me thoroughly engrossed. As suspicion regarding the killer mounts, she pulls a few stunts that had me doing palm/forehead, but they’re forgiven in the overall tension of the book. Once past the middle bubble, I couldn’t read fast enough.

Between the setting with the plague of winter snow, the oppressive weight of Alice’s questionable suicide, and Imogene’s rebellious behavior, there’s a lot going on in this book in addition to a murder mystery.

I did figure out the main plot point early on, but the author peppered the story with enough curve balls to make me second guess myself repeatedly. And I do mean repeatedly. Eventually, my suspicions were proven right, but the connection to the murder and the killer’s motive came as a complete surprise. If you enjoy psychological thrillers that blur lines with domestic thrillers and murder mysteries, The Other Mrs. is well worth the read. 4.5 Stars from me.

3 1/2 stars

I don''t want to say too much about this book because that would spoil things.

Sadie and Will and their 2 sons Otto and Tate have moved to a small island in Maine. They inherited the house from Will''s sister, as well as now being guardian to Will''s 16 year old niece Imogene. Will is pretty much a stay at home dad, he works a few days a week teaching. Sadie is a doctor and the primary bread winner. Not too long after they move in their neighbor Morgan Baines is murdered in her home. The murder naturally has Sadie on edge, who killed Morgan and is the killer still on the island? But it is not only the murder that has Sadie on edge. Imogene and Sadie do not get along, in fact Imogene is out of control. Plus the fact that there was an issue with Otto at his other school and the fact that Will had an affair when they lived in Chicago. Oh yeah and the police are asking questions.

The book is told from a few POV''s Mostly Sadie''s, but then we also have Camille (Will''s lover) / Will and then a 6 year old girl name Mouse. I loved Mouse, but warning she has a mean Step mother (who she calls Fake mom) and there is a bit of abuse.

I have to say I liked the last half of the book better. Through most of the first half I just kept shaking my head and thinking. OMG how can you let Imogene get away with all of that. And also Will not believing or supporting Sadie. Really did not like Will. And Sadie got on my nerves a bit too, Stop giving into whatever Will says!

And then I started to piece things together and we were given more info on what was going on, and I was like "Okay Now I get it. Things are making sense now." Didn''t see that coming though.

Terrible book and terrible writing! This book jumps all over the place and is like trying to read several different books at once. Each chapter is written about a character, or sometimes one character will have two chapters in a row. The book doesn’t flow smoothly and gets very boring at times. The only suspense is - when does this train wreck end. All of the characters are mundane and pointless. Will, the husband, is one of the main characters. Will is pretty much a undeveloped character until the very last of the book and then he is the center of attention for the last few chapters. By then, who cares? It’s almost like the plot was made up as she went along. This was a total waste of time and ridiculous. Everything is neatly wrapped up and explained in the last few chapters which is also juvenile. It did not cause me to think. It only caused me to regret ever buying it.

Mary Kubica''s new <b>4 Star</b> thriller is a perfectly creepy, fun read!

<b>SUMMARY</b>
Sadie reluctantly moves with her husband Will and their two boys Otto (15) and Tate (7) from Chicago to a small Maine island. Will''s sister had recently died, leaving them both her rambling old house and her moody sixteen year old daughter, Imogen.

Since this is a thriller, the island house is kind of remote, old and creepy. It''s winter so the days are short, giving the book an overall dark feel. Sadie and Will really don''t know their niece, Imogen, well at all and she doesn''t want them there. Imogen is blatantly hostile and, since it''s a thriller, she comes across as a little <i>off</i> and possibly a bit creepy. Are you starting to notice a pattern? Lots of creepiness.

Getting the heck out of Chicago did actually seem like a smart idea. The family had recently weathered some major issues; Otto had been in trouble at school and was expelled, Sadie had a troubling incident at work AND Will and Sadie''s marriage was strained after Sadie found out he was having an affair. So when they had the opportunity to relocate, Will called it a fresh start. Sadie went along with it although she was not really sold on rural Maine life and Imogen was a handful and a half.

Not long after they settled in, one of their neighbors was murdered. Murder was not a regular occurrence in this town of only a thousand people, it shocked and terrified everyone. No one felt safe.

The police began questioning the neighbors and, somehow, Sadie found herself to be a suspect. According to the police, someone had seen Sadie in an altercation with the victim, but Sadie swears she has never even spoken to the victim. Sadie knew this was untrue but she started to wonder if someone in her house was involved in the murder. The more she investigates, the less things make sense and the more uncomfortable she becomes with her new home. The story has some fabulous twists and turns, leading up to some fascinating revelations and a very satisfying ending.

I found this book to be quite hard work, I wasn''t really interested in any of the characters, and there were a couple of bits where it felt like the facts of the story were contradicting each other. There were a lot of coincidences in the book that felt a bit forced, and I didn''t enjoy them. Spoilers now so please don''t read if you don''t want to see them - how did Sadie see Celeste in the street? Why did the husband, who''s name I have already forgotten, not know who lived on his sisters street when you would expect the sister to mention it? If this was the place he grew up, he would expect to know some of the people who live on the island even if he wasn''t expecting them all on his doorstep, but if he didn''t grow up there, the coincidence of his sister and the other people all moving to this tiny island before he also moves there is too much. It wasn''t a really gripping read, and I was quite glad to get to the end of it. I can''t say I''ll be in a rush to read any of the authors other books. It felt like it was trying too hard to be twisty, at the expense of developing likeable or hateable interesting characters or any sense of reality.

The Other Mrs is a psychological thriller that has you on the edge of your seat from page one. Will, Sadie and their two sons move from Chicago to Maine for a fresh start after they inherit a house among other things after a death in the Family, Will thinks this is exactly what they need after the last rollercoaster year they spent in Chicago but Sadie is unsure. This little Island is described as picture perfect until the death of Morgan Baines which rattles this small community. It''s the case of who did it. Kubica wrote this book beautifully, there are so many twists and turns just when you think you''ve answered the question of who did it something else is thrown in the mix. This is a fast pace, heart throbbing, edge of your seat thriller and I loved it.

This is a ''psychiatric'' thriller: a family moves from big city Chicago town island town in Maine where their next door neighbour is found dead. This is a really well-thought out plot with enough clues to point one in the right direction and enough red herrings to distract from that direction. The characters and relationships are well-developed and credible. To me, the final twist came suddenly and unexpectedly but it was worth it.
