Today I am reviewing on its publication day The Other Woman by Patricia Dixon, published by Bloodhound Books.
The man she trusted has been keeping a secret . . . A novel of psychological suspense spanning from England to coastal France by the author of Blame.
Rowan’s days of being the other woman and waiting patiently for Alex are almost over. He’s left his wife, and Rowan is finally within touching distance of her happy ever after.
When Alex is involved in a terrible accident, she rushes to him, fearing the worst. But as facts begin to emerge that cast doubt on the accident and the true nature of Alex’s first marriage, Rowan is left devastated. And little does she know that a bigger shock is yet to come. Members of the criminal underworld are conspiring, and Rowan’s family is in grave danger . . .
The Other Woman will take you on an emotional and turbulent voyage from the French seaside town of Boulogne-sur-Mer to the metropolis of Manchester, England, through the murky depths of a marriage that is steeped in secrets, riddled with lies, and laced with danger.
Having an affair you kind of accept that a bit of lying comes with the territory. As Rowan is looking forward to finally having the perfect life with Alex, the man she loves, a series of events has her wondering are there even more lies that she knows nothing about and will they tear everything with Alex apart.
The Other Woman is a highly addictive and gripping read that kept me enthralled and engaged throughout. It was so easy to be caught up in the story and I could not tear myself away until I was done. Best of all was that twist! WOW!! I was not expecting it at all and it took me the better part of an hour when I was done reading it to pick my jaw back up off the ground!
What sets this story apart from others in a similar vein is that It’s not very often that you find yourself rooting for “The Other Woman”, but that is the case with this book. While I loved everything about Rowan, there was nothing at all likeable about Alex’s ex wife Janey, but in saying that, she did bring the story to life and has been perfectly created as the you know what!
Patricia Dixon has set the bar very high with this book and I think it is her best work to date. A fantastic writer and storyteller, she delivers each and every time and it is always such a satisfying experience reading her work. Congratulations on another smashing read Patricia and I look forward to the next one.
Thank you to Patricia Dixon and Keri Beevis for allowing me to read an advanced copy of The Other Woman, which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
