Review quote

An absolute corker - wickedly relatable story, wonderful characters and a great twist -- T. M. Logan on The Other Woman A compulsive, claustrophobic read. It made my heart rate climb -- Emma Kavanagh on The Other Woman A nice twist . . . I think a lot of readers will probably identify with events in the book -- Jojo Moyes on The Other Woman
