The Other Mrs. by Mary Kubica

Will and Sadie moved from Chicago and from their troubles to a remote island and a house Will inherited from his sister.

Not sure their troubles were left behind, though. Will became the guardian of his niece who is quite difficult, and then a neighbor is murdered.

The troubles left behind were nothing compared to what was happening to the family now. Threatening notes on their cars, intruders coming in when the house was empty, people spying on them, and Sadie being accused of the neighbor’s murder as well as her family telling her she didn’t see things she saw.

The characters in this book all seemed to have something to hide or some problem with people in their lives.

We meet husbands having affairs, a spooky, sinister-seeming house, gossipy, small-town citizens, and odd-behaving characters.

How did it all fit together, and how did everything happening follow the Fausts to this small island?

Despite the story line being difficult to follow, THE OTHER MRS is a tense, bizarre, keep-you-turning-the-pages thriller. If you can hang in there, the ending is well worth the wait.

The ending wraps up all the loose ends for a satisfying conclusion that will stick with you. 4/5
