Hi there, friend! Today’s book review is for The Other Woman by Amanda Brookfield.

*Disclaimer : I received a copy of this ebook for free from NetGalley and Boldwood Books in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

Below you’ll find the description of the book provided by NetGalley followed by my personal review and star rating. Enjoy!

Description :

On a normal day, in a normal house, on a normal street, wife and mother Fran has had enough. She packs a case, leaves a note for her bullying husband Pete, and one for her beloved twenty-year-old son Harry, and heads to the airport – and freedom. 

In another house, on another street, Helena is desperately baiting her husband Jack into a fight. These days it feels like the only way to get Jack to take notice of her. Passionate, volatile, increasingly fragile, Helena is fast running out of hope.

What Helena and Fran don’t know, is that soon their lives are going to collide in ways neither expect nor understand. And if Fran and Helena are going to change their own futures, then first they will have to change each other’s.

Book Review : The Other Woman

Fran and Jack are going to do the thing that never works : run away together, escaping from their respective marriages.

The fateful day of their departure sets into motion a chain of events that I never saw coming.

First though, Fran has to undo the steps she took in order to run.

Jack’s wife, Helene, on the other hand refuses to let Jack speak to Fran again – which makes Fran assume that something horrible has happened to him…she refuses to believe he’d actually desert her at the airport.

Honestly – they both seem a little naive to me…and I had a hard time liking either of them. I will say that Fran developed nicely though – she came out of her poor me attitude and started to make things happen for herself.

But for me, this one can be filed under liked…not loved.
