SANDIE JONES has worked as a freelance journalist for more than twenty years and has written for publications including the Sunday Times, Woman's Weekly, and Hello magazine. She lives in London with her husband and three children. The Other Woman was her debut novel and a Reese Witherspoon x Hello Sunshine Book Club pick.

Naomi Chandler had a mostly happy childhood in New York until one horrific event changed her life and that of her sister, Jennifer, forever. But Naomi picked herself up, married an Englishman, moved to Britain, and now has a thriving practice as a psychologist specializing in domestic-abuse counselling. Her husband, Leon, believes that Naomi sometimes crosses the line between neutral professionalism and trying to "save" her patients, and that's what happens when one of those patients, Jacob, decides to leave his abusive wife, and Naomi-unbeknownst to Leon-offers to let Jacob rent the apartment she and Leon own. Without realizing it, Naomi has exposed herself to the possible destruction of the successful life she's carefully built. Someone is out to get her, but who and why? In a series of shocking twists and turns, Naomi's vulnerability is exposed, and just when the reader thinks they might have the plot figured out, Jones throws in yet another surprise, ratcheting up the tension until the explosive conclusion. A fine choice for fans of psychological thrillers. Copyright 2022 Booklist Reviews.
