About the book
In writing that is sharp and seductive, and reminiscent of Emily Giffin’s Something Borrowed and Something Blue, international bestselling author Sarah Rayner explores modern-day relationships and age-old moral dilemmas in The Other Half. The story of an affair told in the alternating voices of the mistress and the wife, Rayner’s opposing leads bid for our sympathy and for the affections of one man, in this lively two-sided contest.
Meet Chloe. She’s nearly thirty years of age, sexy, vibrant, and living in London with her gay roommate Rob. She works as the features editor at Babe magazine, but has ambitions to launch her own weekly. When she approaches James, her potential new publisher with her magazine proposal, she’s instantly attracted, and he’s not shying away either.
Meet Maggie. Wife to James, she has the distinct disadvantage. Early on, James describes Maggie as “less demanding” and “more manageable” than previous girlfriends and admits they married when she became pregnant. When first introduced, Maggie is taking her temperature to gauge whether or not she’s ovulating, and then later leaves for the mall to buy lingerie in an attempt to spice things up with James. Recently, his job has been keeping him in the city until late most evenings, and some nights he doesn’t come home at all…
As the love triangle plays out in this entertaining romp, Rayner proves relationships are never as straightforward as they seem, and keeps us wondering who, if anyone, comes out unscathed.
