    I enjoyed this book a lot. One of the things I liked about it was that I truly couldn't predict what would happen next: the plot was new and surprising, without being twisty-for-its-own-sake. My other favorite aspect of this book was the very interesting inclusion of characters wit...

    3.5 stars. Two new mothers, Daphne and Laurel, meet at a mothers group to help with their postpartum depression. A strange strong friendship develops. The story takes you for a ride from past to present, from reality to delusions. My head was spinning trying to figure out who was who a...

    I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway, and I'm glad I read The Other Mother, even if my thoughts on this book are mixed, because it felt both like a complete mess and way too tidy all at once. This may come down to the fact that I haven't read that many thrillers before, and thus ...

    When Daphne Marist and her infant daughter, Chloe, pull up the gravel drive to the home of Daphne?s new employer, it feels like they?ve entered a whole new world. Tucked in the Catskills, the stone mansion looks like something out of a fairy tale, its lush landscaping hiding the vi...

    ?The Other Mother? Written by Carol Goodman I opened up ?The Other Mother? during a sick day, gross with the stomach flu. At first, I thought I was really confused by the premise, because my head was foggy from fever, from chills, from the flu. After I became better, I stil...

    If you like well-done psychological thrillers, skip this one. This book could have been interesting; I liked the journal entry structure. However, the whole plot point that a children's author would help some random dude figure out if his wife was planning on leaving him by posting a f...

    Full review on my blog: http://www.thebookwhisperer.org/2018/... ...

    I enjoyed this book a lot. One of the things I liked about it was that I truly couldn't predict what would happen next: the plot was new and surprising, without being twisty-for-its-own-sake. My other favorite aspect of this book was the very interesting inclusion of characters wit...
