Newly engaged, Ellie is thrilled to be accepted into the loving Cooper clan—which seems like the perfect family she never had—until she begins to realize that Dan’s mom, Linda, is a little too involved. Dan and Linda talk on the phone every day. Twice a day. As Dan and Ellie’s intimate civil wedding ceremony gets transformed into a black-tie affair, Ellie begins to wonder if it’s possible to marry the man without marrying his mother.

As troubles mount, Ellie turns to her friends—glamorous Lisa, who always looks like she’s just stepped off a runway, and wonderfully frazzled Trish—and tries to rediscover the independence she once had, and the man she still loves. But it seems that having a child and saving a marriage means growing up in ways she’d never imagined . . .

A warm, witty, and wise look at mothers-in-law and what they teach us about ourselves, The Other Woman is sure to please Jane Green’s growing legion of fans.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Babajaga | 2/12/2014

    " How could some people say that this book was predictable? I was ready for an easy read, a funny chicklit, so I was really suprised by the sudden twist in the middle. I liked the book all the more because of this. The caracters were totally believable, I can find their traits in either myself or people around me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 2/6/2014

    " So the second time Ms. Green used the phrase "scraped her hair back into a pony tail" I almost threw this thing aside. But how often does anyone write about dealing with a mother-in-law? So I read the first quarter and last quarter, and I would urge a future edition of this book to consider the chopping block. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindy | 1/4/2014

    " Good book. I really enjoyed how it went into such detail but still covered just a vast amount time. Showing her struggles from the very beginning. I almost want to give the book to my mother-in-law as a guide of what not to do. "

    " Very enjoyable story that explores the relationship between a woman and her mother-in-law and the all too familiar challenges that come. I really enjoyed the characters and could relate to Ellie as she struggles to find acceptance. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gen | 12/17/2013

    " A decent book about a woman and her overbearing mother in law. It's not light-hearted and there are some very sad events. Not my favorite Jane Green book but a decent summer read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stefanie | 12/11/2013

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 kenpen | 10/28/2013

    " The other woman is the mother-in-law. The mother-in-law's push to control things especially around the wedding was such a frustrating read. I had to skip ahead because it was getting my stress level up! The book was good, but I like it the least of any of Jane Green's books I have read. "

    " I needed a fast, easy read and got one with this book. Not particularly uplifting and I spent a large chunk of the book wondering if I had already read it. Some parts of the book were quite addictive though and I raced through it. "
