From the New York Times bestselling author of the Hello Sunshine Book Club pick The Other Woman comes a compelling new domestic suspense novel about a family who is forever changed when a stranger arrives at their. Nope This didn’t work with me When I see something illogical and nonsense point which affects the entire story’s development I truly lose my interest That’s exactly happened during my readingThe story told by Kate and Lauren two sisters polar opposites envying each other’s lives Kate is successful reporter climbing her career ladder faster having a lovely husband Matt but she wants to have a baby trying too hard exhausted from IVF treatment process She wants to have a family And Lauren is married with lovely children exhausted to turn into a stay at home mom and dealing with mood swings mental abuse of her husband Simon She wants a career freedom and she misses her old love for 20 years Their Sunday family gathering with her mother Rose who was still grieving because of their father’s sudden decease turned into bitter cold weird interactions Nobody can stand with each other And one day a young woman named Jess knocks their door and demands to see her father Henry She tells them she is their half sister Yes everything couldn’t be get better could be Later we found out Lauren brought Jess into their lives because she was always doubtful about her father’s sincerity and thought he might have been having an affair behind their mother’s back They found each other from DNA match side Yes; THAT’S THE PART THIS BOOK STARTED TO FAIL The idea of finding your sister by DNA match website didn’t make sense to me the same so called sister has no idea about her biological past because she is adopted and as far as I know because of carrying XX chromosomes for getting accurate result about DNA you need mother’s DNA Lauren also needed a confidante because she was estranged with her family members after her father’s dying She wanted her family back Her intentions were sincere At least what she tells to herself which I don’t buy But Jess has no intention to stop till she finds her biological mother and the facts about secret relationship with her father which will ruin everything in sisters’ lives and make them uestion everything they know about their own childhood as they see their entire family life consisted of lies and secretsI liked the intriguing pacing and moving chapters fast building tension but there are things absolutely irritated me I’m not genealogy expert but Lauren and Jess’ way of finding each other on DNA website didn’t work with meI couldn’t connect with any of the characters and I couldn’t relate with their pain suffer and motives They were so annoying flat dull characters The ending was also twisty but a little foreseeable and mediocre Overall It was still fast pacing uick and easy read I didn’t get bored and but unlikable characterization and big plot holes of the story and predictable revelation disappointed me So I’m giving 25 stars to round up to 3 This turned into I didn’t love it but I didn’t truly hate it Switzerland books I still enjoy the author’s writing style and I loved her previous works But this one failed me just a little because she’s great writer and I expected from herSpecial thanks to NetGalley and Minotaur BooksSt Martin’s Press for sharing this mysterious ARC in exchange my honest reviewbloginstagramfacebooktwitter
