I put the book down several times before committing to push through it. The plot is ok, but never develops. Everything was summarized at the end versus revealed. It was a page turner because you're skipping full chapters hoping the story would take off. The most annoying parts were the completely pointless exhibits. I read the first few then skipped the rest.
From her first novel on, I was an avid Sophie Hannah fan (even had books shipped from the UK), but the last two books have been complete bombs. Don't bother with Room Swept White and you'd be better off skipping The Other Woman's House.

This was a horrible read. I have read a book in the past by Sophie Hannah, and expected this to be a light, fun beach read. It was poorly plotted. Characters were one dimensional. Much of the plot did not even make sense. I was not looking for a great read....but expected a fun read. Much if the plot is simply told not revealed by actions of the characters. Sorry, Ms Hannah, but you can di better.

This was a page turner! The characters are dark and corrupted. But what is revealed at the end does not make any sense. The husband is educated owns his own business but kills over a house and lifestyle he will likely be able to afford ???!? I could not put the book down and iam planning on reading Hannah's other books.

Connie and her husband, Kit, have been having problems for the last six months. When the story opens, Connie is having serious trust issues because she suspects that Kit is having an affair with a woman in Cambridge. The woman's house goes up for sale, and when Connie looks at the listing on the Internet one night after 1 a.m., she sees a woman's body lying in a pool of blood on the floor of the lounge. She awakens Kit and asks him to look at it, but he's unable to find it, and Connie (and others) begin to doubt her sanity.
The story unfolds in a most satisfying way, making you wonder who is the bad guy, who is really sane - and you'll hang on till the end, wanting to find out how the story turns out. This would make a terrific thriller on the big screen.

Every reader her book, Every book its reader. This was just not the book for me. I was dazed and confused through most of it and put it down about 3/4 of the way through. It made no sense to me at all, going from past to present, first person, second and third persons... I did not like any of the characters. If I knew what was going on I would tell you. How do you go nuts from house hunting?anyway, I will never give just one star for a book because at some point some one shed blood sweat & tears for their "baby" and somewhere out there are people who will & do love this book so, having said that, this is a 2 star read...:(
