Happy Thursday! Here’s my blogtour review of Other Women by Jean Levy!
Sophie thought she and Jonah were happy, bringing up their small daughter together, until one summer’s day, she discovers that Jonah is far from the man she thought he was. Sam – an attractive English teacher – seems to offer her some comfort, and new friendships are a support. But is Sam really who he says he is? Where have her new friends appeared from? Is anyone telling the truth? As Jonah’s lies threaten Sophie and her daughter, can anyone be trusted?
I have not read a Jean Levy before, so jumped at the chance when the publisher invited me to be on the blogtour!
Other Women is the story of Sophie; and the unravelling of her life over a period of years. It is laced with secrets and lies and, without wanting to give too much away, it is punctuated with twists and turns that surprised me more than once.
Whilst I’d probably class Other Women as a psychological thriller, I wouldn’t say it is of the “conventional” variety. It is rich and thick in detail and really does leave nothing to the imagination. Levy has thought of everything and all the reader needs to do is to sit back and enjoy her words; Other Women makes for a truly immersive read.
Primarily a character driven novel, we happen upon some intriguing people in Other Women and I throughly enjoyed the mystery element that unfolds as we meet everyone, as well as the tension that ramped up as I turned the pages.
A well crafted, and quietly compelling read; Other Women will have you turning the pages long past your bedtime.
Other Women is out now I’m paperback and you can buy it here. My thanks go to Dome Press and Emily Glenister for my copy of the book and the invitation to the blogtour.
Hope you have a lovely day. Until next time!
