Traveling Sisters Book Reviews

The Other Mrs. by Mary Kubica is now available and even though Norma and I both recommend this story for a fun and entertaining read are thoughts on this one are like oil and water. I am the oil and Norma’s the water. Our reviews might not mix but we sure had fun!!

Norma’s Water

Compulsive, twisty & wholly absorbing!

There is a reason that I have been an avid fan of this author since her debut novel,The Good Girl. She writes these extremely unsettling and twisty thrillers that are absolutely hypnotic to read.

I do think there are many times that people use it as an excuse, or just an easy answer for what they don’t understand.
