The Other Mrs. by Mary Kubica

Release Date - February 18, 2020



The Foust family moves from their busy lives in Chicago to a remote Maine island. Sadie's a doctor who will be very busy seeing patients. Her husband is going to step things up and be a stay-at-home dad as he adjusts to becoming the guardian to his teen niece. When their neighbor is murdered one night, Sadie cannot help but worry. A witness claims she was arguing with the victim before the murder, Sadie knows she was busy seeing patients.

As the ties between her family and the victim start to come to light, she becomes more desperate to keep her family safe and fit into a community that doesn't seem to love having this family of interlopers on their island.

I adore Mary Kubica's novels. They're always packed with plenty of chills, unexpected twists, and excellently penned suspenseful plots. I ended up predicting one of the twists in The Other Mrs. way too early. While I still read every page, I found that knowing one of the big twists took a bit away from my enjoyment.

The setting is fantastic. Maine is my favorite place to be, and I could imagine myself on this island smelling the briny air and cool wind. While this isn't my favorite of Kubica's novels, I still say that readers need to pick up a copy and enjoy the setting, characters, and suspense that it delivers.
