    4.5 stars! This was one crazy, twisty, confusing, wild ride! Wow ? was it ever fun! I was highly intrigued from the start ? the characters were fantastic, the atmosphere was vivid and captivating, the plot was engrossing, unpredictable and addictive. This story had me glued to t...

    Should she really have done what she did? That seemed to be the only way to keep her baby. Daphne married, had a baby, and had Postpartum symptoms that caused her to not be happy and have thoughts of harming the baby. Daphne attended classes and met a friend, Laurel, in the clas...

    I received this via Goodreads Giveaways in exchange for an honest review. All my opinions are my own. ---- I give the author points for creating a complex plot and confusing the heck out of me at times. More than a few instances had me going "What the hell?" "Is she... isn't she?" ...

    When Daphne flees her home, taking very little but her six-month-old daughter, Chloe, she isn't sure what to expect. She's leaving everything behind (including her controlling husband) to work for one of her favorite authors, Schuyler, as an archivist. She'll be living in the shadow of...

    4 Stars This non-stop psychological thriller earned four stars from me! SUMMARY This is one of those books that is more fun to read if you don?t know a lot about the plot before hand. All I am going to say is that this story is about two new moms, both suffering from postpart...

    Too many twists and turns that made the story seem very unrealistic. ...

    So I was just reading along, enjoying this story of two women who both recently had a baby girl, and both named them Chloe, when I realized that I completely didn't understand what was happening in this book. Man, was this hard to follow. And I really gave it my mostly full attention. ...

    crazy awesome read! ...

    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...

    I read her book THE LAKE OF DEAD LANGUAGES years ago and absolutely loved it, so I went into this reading experience hoping and expecting to feel the same way. Nada. I did not like this book. Let me repeat - I did not like this book. Without giving anything away, it is about a woman wi...

    ?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...

    I am a huge fan of psychological thrillers and I was extremely happy to come upon this gem. I was very much into the book, but after the unexpected twist in the middle of the story - I was not able to put this book down. After giving birth, Daphne Marist starts to experience postpar...

    Eagerly waiting for this to come out! Love Carol Goodman ...

    What a roller coaster ride! I won?t rehash the plot because I would be afraid of giving away some of the plot twists by accident, and there are a lot of them. I was never quite sure what was going on, who was who, and who to trust. This book is the definition of a psychological thr...

    Explosive, Confusing, and Chilling all wrapped into one or shall I say multiple personas. This was amazing. Beginning with Daphne Marist and her journal writing we see a friendship forming around one main connection - children- specifically named the same, "Chloe" with Laurel. At a...

    The Other Mother by Carol Goodman is one crazy ride and I was hooked from the first page. This is the story of a new mother, Daphne, that befriends another new mother, Laurel, at a support group. Both of these women have been dealing with thoughts that they?re uncomfortable with, cer...

    This was an exciting read as it is totally a mind game. You don't know what is real or not, who is telling the truth or not, who people really are and what their real motives are. The whole book. So many possibilities and so many twists and turns, it will keep you on your toes. The end...

    4.5 stars! This was one crazy, twisty, confusing, wild ride! Wow ? was it ever fun! I was highly intrigued from the start ? the characters were fantastic, the atmosphere was vivid and captivating, the plot was engrossing, unpredictable and addictive. This story had me glued to t...

    So I was just reading along, enjoying this story of two women who both recently had a baby girl, and both named them Chloe, when I realized that I completely didn't understand what was happening in this book. Man, was this hard to follow. And I really gave it my mostly full attention. ...

    Daphne and Laurel are new mothers ? both suffering from postpartum depression and a history of other mental illness in their past, or so we are led to believe. They meet at a group to help new mothers and even though the two couldn?t be more different they become close friends. Dap...

    Two women, Laurel and Daphne, with babies both named Chloe, meet in a support group for women suffering from postpartum depression. Their identities slowly merge and one is later found dead in her bathtub. One of them ends up at a mental hospital where she initially began work as an ...

    Explosive, Confusing, and Chilling all wrapped into one or shall I say multiple personas. This was amazing. Beginning with Daphne Marist and her journal writing we see a friendship forming around one main connection - children- specifically named the same, "Chloe" with Laurel. At a...

    3.5 A mental institution, journals and a reclusive author, sound intriguing, and this was, had atmosphere in spades. Raced through the first two thirds of the book, another one of those where you ask yourself, who to believe, what exactly is going on? Who is trust worthy, telling the t...

    4.5 stars! This was one crazy, twisty, confusing, wild ride! Wow ? was it ever fun! I was highly intrigued from the start ? the characters were fantastic, the atmosphere was vivid and captivating, the plot was engrossing, unpredictable and addictive. This story had me glued to t...

    Should she really have done what she did? That seemed to be the only way to keep her baby. Daphne married, had a baby, and had Postpartum symptoms that caused her to not be happy and have thoughts of harming the baby. Daphne attended classes and met a friend, Laurel, in the clas...

    I received this via Goodreads Giveaways in exchange for an honest review. All my opinions are my own. ---- I give the author points for creating a complex plot and confusing the heck out of me at times. More than a few instances had me going "What the hell?" "Is she... isn't she?" ...

    When Daphne flees her home, taking very little but her six-month-old daughter, Chloe, she isn't sure what to expect. She's leaving everything behind (including her controlling husband) to work for one of her favorite authors, Schuyler, as an archivist. She'll be living in the shadow of...

    4 Stars This non-stop psychological thriller earned four stars from me! SUMMARY This is one of those books that is more fun to read if you don?t know a lot about the plot before hand. All I am going to say is that this story is about two new moms, both suffering from postpart...

    Man this was a confusing read but I truly mean that as a compliment, I enjoyed every single page of this compulsive read! The confusion was the interesting kind, you know when you?re reading a book and you know the narrator isn?t reliable? It was that type of read, you?re endless...

    Daphne, a new mother, suffers from postpartum depression. She develops a friendship with Laurel, also a new mom, and soon their lives become irrevocably entwined. This is a story of madness, mistakes and ultimately redemption. Carol Goodman draws a fine line between reality and delu...

    Too many twists and turns that made the story seem very unrealistic. ...

    So I was just reading along, enjoying this story of two women who both recently had a baby girl, and both named them Chloe, when I realized that I completely didn't understand what was happening in this book. Man, was this hard to follow. And I really gave it my mostly full attention. ...

    crazy awesome read! ...

    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...

    This was a mental twister! I found it a little confusing at times and I had to stop and really think about some parts of it which makes this brilliant. You won't know which way it's going. A whirl wind of complexities. Novels & Latte BookGypsy ...

    I read her book THE LAKE OF DEAD LANGUAGES years ago and absolutely loved it, so I went into this reading experience hoping and expecting to feel the same way. Nada. I did not like this book. Let me repeat - I did not like this book. Without giving anything away, it is about a woman wi...

    ?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...

    **3 Goodreads Stars** Carol Goodman's The Other Mother is a psychological thriller that explores the difficulties of two new mothers, Laurel and Daphne, who meet at a mother-baby group. First off, I appreciate that Goodman warned readers at the beginning of the book that it co...

    I am a huge fan of psychological thrillers and I was extremely happy to come upon this gem. I was very much into the book, but after the unexpected twist in the middle of the story - I was not able to put this book down. After giving birth, Daphne Marist starts to experience postpar...
