The Other Mothers Reviews

Katherine Faulkner unpeels Fornasetti wallpaper and opens glass box extensions, revealing delectably dislikeable characters, secrets - and murder. This is The Undoing meets Big Little Lies. A fast-paced, decadent skewering of upper middle-class motherhood -- Abigail Dean
Katherine's done it again! Anyone who enjoyed Greenwich Park will love this – maybe even more. Full of terrible people behaving terribly, it's such a compelling story. I read it in one sitting last night – extremely gripping. It filled me with immense relief that my children are now in their later teenage years and that I never have to deal with this again -- Harriet Tyce
Next-level mum noir, The Other Mothers is a brilliant portrayal of the complexities of parenthood, work and - oh yes - murder. Smart, tense and gripping. Loved it! -- Ellery Lloyd
A wry and tightly plotted look at parent cliques, playgroup angst and when mum-life turns sour … The Other Mothers is Big Little Lies meets Silent Witness. I loved it! -- Harriet Walker, author of The New Girl and fashion editor at The Times
Wonderful sense of growing dread in the dark side of motherland -- Fiona Barton
The Other Mothers is not only a sharp, fabulously pacy thriller, but also a biting commentary on the demands (and consequences) of a certain kind of performative parenting. I finished it in one sitting, captured by Faulkner’s compelling characters and gripping plot, and the ending provided a truly satisfying twist! A sinister window into the darker side of motherhood, you’ll never look at playgroup parents quite the same… -- Kate Collins, author of A Good House for Children
The Other Mothers is brilliant! Such a fast-paced, twisty story that takes you in completely unexpected directions. I read this in one sitting and adored every page. Katherine Faulkner's first novel was fantastic, but this is another step up. The characters are wonderfully vivid and Faulkner captures the worlds of both journalism and motherhood perfectly. She also nails the moment when they both start going wrong -- Holly Watt
A highly addictive and whip-smart tale, The Other Mothers strips the surface from Insta-perfect lives to reveal a deeply unsettling reality. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough! -- Teresa Driscoll
The Other Mothers is a first-class thriller, with taut prose, gasp-worthy twists and characters you’ll love to hate. Faulkner has done it again - fans of Greenwich Park won’t be disappointed -- Robin Morgan-Bentley
Smart, slick and utterly captivating; The Other Mothers reeled me in with its wonderfully intricate plot and brilliant cast of characters. Highly recommended -- Sarah Bonner, author of Her Perfect Twin
Through many twists and turns this book keeps you guessing up to the very end. A riveting read -- Muddy Stilettos
