Book Review: The Other Wife by Claire McGowan

Review of The Other Wife

Rating: ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐  


She’s a total stranger. But she knows who you are…

Suzi did a bad thing. She’s paying for it now, pregnant, scared, and living in an isolated cottage with her jealous husband, Nick.

When Nora moves into the only house nearby, Suzi is delighted to have a friend. So much so that she’s almost tempted to tell Nora her terrible secret. But there’s more to Nora than meets the eye. It’s impossible—does she already know what Suzi did?

Meanwhile, Elle spends her days in her perfect home, fixated on keeping up appearances. But when her husband betrays her, it unravels a secret going all the way back to her childhood. She’ll do whatever it takes to hold on to him, even if that means murder. After all, she’s done it before…

Caught up in their own secrets and lies, these strangers will soon realise they have more in common than they could ever have imagined. When a shocking event brings them together, their lives will never be the same again.


Unputdownable, addictive, and fast-paced Psychological Suspense!

This is a well-written plot, starring twisted and unlikable characters, all driven by different motives; greed, lies, deceit, jealousy, and all arrays of destructive emotions.

Secret upon secrets and twists upon twists, some easier to unmask than others. Moreover, there were many implausible occurrences in this story and the ending was no different but still managed to have a satisfying edge to it.

All is all, this is an enthralling read and I will definitely recommend it!

I would like to thank the Publishers, NetGalley, and the Author for sending me a copy of this book.

    1. I thought it was a new word but then found this: Unputdownable is a new word, but not so new that dictionaries haven’t noticed it. Merriam-Webster says its first known use was in 1947, and the earliest example in the Oxford English Dictionary is also from that year. Thank you, Joe! I’m good, closely following the US elections. How about you?

  1. So it is a word, that is very interesting. I’m well, Hajar. Life can be a thousand times worse, as we all know. I imagine the US elections are being followed very closely in Europe, and I can’t think that anybody of sound mind is rooting for the corrupt, piece of shit in the White House. And once the idiot is out of office, our immigration policies should go back to normal, our support for our European allies will increase, and instead of discounting science, we will once again lead the world in scientific and medical advances and why is that? Because of all of the immigrants who come to this country, and scientists, and contribute to our success and the world’s success. When are you moving to NY?
