Sadie and Will Foust have only just moved their family from bustling Chicago to small-town Maine when their neighbor Morgan Baines is found dead in her home. The murder rocks their tiny coastal island, but no one is more shaken than Sadie.
But it’s not just Morgan’s death that has Sadie on edge. And as the eyes of suspicion turn toward the new family in town, Sadie is drawn deeper into the mystery of what really happened that dark and deadly night. But Sadie must be careful, for the more she discovers about Mrs. Baines, the more she begins to realize just how much she has to lose if the truth ever comes to light.
Multiple narrators tell the story of The Other Mrs., and I’m immediately drawn in by them, as it takes a while to realize just who they are and how they fit into Sadie’s life.
Will has a history of infidelity, so his every move sets off alarms for me as I read the story. Sadie has issues, but we don’t discover the extent of them until the very end.
Just as I had decided that I knew who might be the perpetrator, the author twists the tale and shows us another view. But then, another turn takes us to the truth.
I loved this story, unable to stop rapidly turning the pages. A definite 5 star read for me.
