The Other Woman by Jane Adams #BookReview #JoffeBooks #4*

Marcie never wanted to feel this way about her grandfather. Uneasy, resentful, afraid.

She’s always been his favourite, his Bird — the helpless little thing who stole his heart at birth.

Now he is dying and Marcie can’t stand to be around him.

Day and night, he raves of Rebekkah, a raven-haired beauty who never leaves his side.

She is not his wife.
She is not the mother of his children.
She is not to be silenced.

Is she a fragment of a dying man’s fevered imagination? Or something more?

Marcie vows to help her grandfather pull the truth from his nightmares. But the deeper she digs the more she regrets her promise.

Is she ready for the killer secret she’s about to expose?

Enticing Tale of Family Secrets!

There’s certainly a mystery to solve here!

Marcie grew up loving her grandfather; she was always his favourite but now he’s old and he’s dying and what time he has left is haunted by his past. In his fevered dreams he talks of a woman named Rebekkah, Marcie – aware of no such person in his life – commits to finding out the truth about the past. Is she ready to face the truth?

An enticing tale of family secrets, this is full of revelations with each one more scary than the last. A well-crafted story, cleverly written to keep the reader wondering. Set both in the present and harking back to the past, the story unfolds in a timely manner. Just different enough and rather an exciting read from an author whose experience shows. I liked Marcie and admired how wonderfully supportive her husband was, but there are definitely a few family members who gave me the creeps. A good read and one I’m happy to give four stars.

My thanks to the publisher for my copy; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.

Author Details

I am the author of more than thirty published crime novels. The first, The Greenway, was nominated for both the Authors’ club award and the CWA John Creasey for best debut novel.
I’m constantly amazed at where life has taken me. Writing had never been on my ‘possible careers’ list, but once stories take root in your brain, they just have to be told – and I feel very fortunate that people want to read them.

I have written several series featuring DI MIke Croft, Ex DI Ray Flowers, amateur sleuth Rina Martin, Ex DS Naomi Blake and, a series set in the 1920s, featuring DCI Henry Johnstone and DS Mickey Hitchens, plus several standalone novels

In addition to writing I teach creative writing, read and mentor for The Literary Consultancy, am a Royal Literary Fund Fellow and FRSA.
