Manipulative, cunning, and downright chilling, Pammie is exactly the breath of fresh air my domestic suspense reading list needed. The brilliance of this setup is twofold. Second, it centers around a relationship far more permanent than an affair: affairs can hopefully! Inject this very ordinary relationship with a healthy dose of hostility, and the result is the delightfully twisted relationship that Pammie and Emily share.
Pammie is keenly attuned to social niceties and expectations, and she uses this innate sense of propriety against Emily at every possible turn. Jones balances the melodramatic and the ordinary to pitch-perfect effect in THE OTHER WOMAN; the result is a psychological suspense novel that manages to be just dramatic enough to entertain without losing the underlying relatability that makes it such a creepy read.
Readers who love suspense novelists like B. Paris, this one is a strong contender. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. All opinions my own. Sandie kindly took the time to answer a few of my most pressing questions about her debut novel, and an excerpt of our conversation is below! Can you identify one moment when the idea popped into your head, or did it develop over time?
SJ: The idea came about as a result of talking to friends and acquaintances who all seemed to have a mother-in-law story to tell! But I was imagining a more humorous take on it, perhaps a comedy or light-hearted chick lit novel. SJ: Ooh, where to start?!? Pammie is all your worst nightmares comes true. About the Author.

Great read so far. I think this book would be a True page after page Turner. Sandie Jones is a great author and I for one cannot wait to get this book in my mailbox. Sandie Jones has written the perfect suspense thriller book to read during this wedding season this fall.
Everyone knows the stress that comes with meeting the parents, but no one could ever think that someone would hold their child so dear that would want to keep them for themselves. I cannot wait to get my hands on this novel to see to what lengths these women will go to so that their dreams come true when another women is standing in their way.

Imagine for a minute you are so in love with this one girl and you believed that she was also in love, she said yes to your proposer and on your wedding day you catch her having sex with your best friend and still she tells you to your face that she never loved you, and then file for a divorce then move in with your suppose to be best friend.
This is all that happen to me. It seem like a story but believe this is my life story. My name is Charles William i am a paramedic and live in Dublin, Ireland. My marriage ought to be the best and i ought to be the proudest man that day but Kelly Cater made a fool out of me.
I never thought she would even think of cheating on me on my wedding day with the man i consider to be my best friend. It all happened during our wedding reception. I caught them in the bathroom i would say how but it too embarrassing for me to speak about. Hearing those word was like a knife piercing through my heart i was like you married to me and you tell me that you love him.
As i could recall it was our wedding day how can this be happen. She call off the wedding party herself telling ever one that the marriage was over. I was broken not knowing what to do about it. All this was all i could think of but still, i was madly in love with a girl who cheated on me with my best friend.
I had scarified too much to let go, i was not going to let Joe that is my suppose to be best friend to make a fool out of me. Non made her to what to have contact with me. I stumbled on an article on how to make your ex fall in love with again using a spell. At first i was that is so impossible but still something inside made me to contact a spell caster Dr Zuma. I made it clear what i wanted him to do for me. He asked me to get some material which i got but could not get them over to him. I had to send him the money to get the materials. He told me he was going to send me some enchanting word that those enchantment will control her emotion and make she fall in love with me all over again.
All what he told me will happen fell into place just as he said. I had the love of my life back in my hands and there was nothing Joe could do but to back off cos it was clear that she wanting nothing to do with him. Dr Zuma is that one spell caster you can give your thrust to. My name is Kerry, my boyfriend broke up with me a month ago, i was totally devastated, and i will cry and wish for him to come back.
