I'd recommend anyone looking for a mesmerizing, intriguing, edge-of-your-seat story that you can lose chunks of time (pun intended?) Something that nags at me, makes me feel uneasy, though I don't know what it is that makes me feel this way. This whodunit will seem unsolvable. But, the thing is, this didn’t happen until the very end of the book.
It does require suspending disbelief, and as I was reading this one, I found it fun and entertaining. Sadie is a doctor and Will is a teacher and they’re the parents of two sons, 14-year old Otto and 7-year old Tate. Because I feel like embracing change in one part of my life would necessarily mean opening myself up to change in all parts of my life and, in doing so, putting it all at risk.

They also have custody of Will’s teenage niece who would rather be anywhere but with their family. But, if you’re not a fan of this author, this book likely won’t induce you to become one. What have I missed? Because so many of the things I wanted in my youth — things I never dared dream for, like a spouse and kids and a writing career — are things that I have now. What follows is a twisted and tense tale that kept me on my toes. I spent six months studying abroad, exploring Europe and trusting in a way that only an inexperienced 20-year-old would that I wouldn’t end up either murdered, or kidnapped, or — worst of all — both. Anyone else find what I did? For the preceding 7/8th of the novel, reading felt arduous. She has recently relocated from urban Chicago to a sleepy town in Maine with her husband and their two sons.

Charlotte's Web of Book Spoilers SPOILERS for Invisible Girl by Lisa Jewell . Will tried killing Sadie, too. Want to see what I pick up next?
Right on schedule. Sadie and Will Foust have recently relocated from their Chicago home to that of his deceased sister Alice’s in coastal Maine. Though Sadie insists she knows nothing about what happened to Morgan — in fact, she barely knows Morgan at all — there is evidence to the contrary. On a positive note, the author managed to come up with some twists to the story. Sadie was also Camille.
Many twists, turns, alternating POVs spread out over a generous timeline. He may tell you things to keep you from ending the affair. Sadie, Will, and their two boys relocate from central Chicago to rural Maine. It is probably because I am so resistant to change that I initially felt a tremendous amount of sympathy for — and, by connection, attachment to — the protagonist in The Other Mrs., the most recent novel by the increasingly prolific Mary Kubica.
Following the twist I had seen coming was a secondary twist. Their new home is far larger than the one they left behind but also comes with one of its previous inhabitants still residing there. This book had such a chilling and eery vibe to it. I did enjoy this psychological thriller although I have one to two reservations. I feel we were left hanging.
In fact, the post to your left probably started out as a marginally legible handwritten note. I started to read this book and found it dark and depressing.

They soon settle in to small-town life: Sadie in her new medical practice and Will as a part-time college lecturer on the mainland. What’s the biggest risk you’ve ever taken? Sadie Foust’s life is all about change, lately. Repeat. SPOILERS for The Hunting Party by Lucy Foley, SPOILERS for The Good Liar by Catherine McKenzie.

Their new life is shattered when their neighbor is murdered and Sadie. The book has several narrators, keeping readers completely focused yet baffled. And it wasn’t long before my perception of her shifted. She became frustratingly weak and I, in no way, enjoyed watching her bumble through the plot. An old house on an island off Maine. Should readers really be expected to trudge through 7/8th of a book before something awesome happens? The reason for their sudden move is a little murky and Alice’s house is more than a little creepy considering that she committed suicide in the attic and left behind sullen teenage daughter Imogen.

Sadie needed a new start, but she didn’t think she would find herself living in a secluded house on a sinister island with a hostile teenager. Sadie, Will, and their two boys relocate from central Chicago to rural Maine. All three female characters were the same person. That causes lots of fear on the island, particularly so for Sadie who comes under scrutiny. Plus, Imogen is not very happy to have them there and is moody and withdrawn. Wowzers. And I don’t understand it. * Drink.
I look forward to reading more books by Mary Kubica. My second issue was the protagonist herself. Readers’ questions about The Other Mrs.. 17 questions answered.

Teenage Imogen is difficult and combative, Will and Sadie are still attempting to control their own marital struggles, and their eldest son is escaping a troubling school incident. So, naturally, I love to drink and read simultaneously.
