The Other Widow By Susan Crawford | Book Review

hcc-first-look-the-other-widow-susan-crawfordEverybody’s luck runs out. This time it could be theirs…

Susan Crawford, author of the psychological thriller The Pocket Wife, does it again with her new novel, The Other Widow. With a complex cast of characters—featuring the perspectives of three strong women brought together by a tragic accident—Crawford captures the very essence of grief felt by a widow and the other woman, haunting love, and obsession.

I delight in all thrillers; whether they are fast-paced or slowly built up. The Other Widow falls into the latter unlike her debut novel, The Pocket Wife, which falls into the former. That being said, it’s just as absorbing as it steadily examines the psychological impacts of deception, vulnerability, and desire.

There are so many layers of deception that compel the reader to continually question every single character and detail therein contained. Crawford’s braintwisting plot will keep readers on the edge of their seats, yearning for the next page right until the very startling end. I guarantee that you won’t put it down because I wasn’t able to do so!

This is a marvelous book for enthusiastic fans of thrillers and mysteries. Moreover, readers of chick-lit and chick-noir will revel in the perspectives of Dorrie, Karen, and Maggie.

The Other Widow hits bookstores today! So, make sure to head there right now. Seriously, what are you still doing here? Go pick up the book!


A huge thank you to HarperCollins Canada for selecting me to be one of ten keen readers to be a part of the First Look program. They provided me with an uncorrected proof of The Other Widow by Susan Crawford in exchange for an honest review.
