    I enjoyed the story of a stereotypical daughter and mother-in-law as a lot of it rang very true for me. I found the story to be quite funny at some times and also feeling quite frustrated for the primary character. But I did not enjoy the ending, it was too contrived and felt like a...

    Ellie Black believes she has found the perfect man for her in Dan Cooper, and is thrilled when he asks her to marry him. She is relieved that his family seems to like her, and believes that she is finally going to feel a part of a loving family. Things start to go awry when Dan's mothe...

    Irrational behavior stresses me out. Consequently, this book totally stressed me out in the middle. Don't worry, though. By the end everyone had stopped acting like idiots. Despite the stress of the middle, I really enjoyed this book. Jane Green is a favorite author of mine - and this ...

    Tedious, predictable story of a British woman, motherless, who deals with an overbearing mother-in-law. Presented as light, humorous chick lit, but isn't funny or entertaining at all. ...

    Maybe it's my pregnancy hormones but I really fet, through most of the book, that the main character was over reating. Now that I've finished the book -- I realize that was the whole point! LOL ...

    Ellie?s mother died when she was 13 and she was raised as an only child by her father. All her life she wished she was part of a big happy family. When she meets Dan and his family, she falls head over heals for them all. She finally has a sister and the mother she always wanted. As ...

    I thought this would be a light, easy, fun read. Instead, depressing and a little annoying. The gist of the story is that Ellie marries Dan knowing that his mother is a control freak and that her son is still connected by the apron strings. Ellie and Dan have a child and the mother-...

    Yep. I'm still on a major Jane Green kick. This one was great and I blew through it. Next, I want to get my hands on her latest, "Swapping Lives." ...

    Re: _The Other Woman_ by Jane Green The word for this book is "banal". By that I mean it had no depth. It was what I call "house-wifey". The writing style did nothing to redeem the boring plot which boiled down to an over-bearing mother-in-law. I agreed with Anna's GR review of t...

    I only picked up this book because we were banned from using the internet at work and it was a very slow week. This has to be one of the most depressing, frustrating, banal and predictable books I've ever read. Ellie is whiney and much more like her mother in law than she thinks. Dan i...

    Read a couple of the reviews and some were quite negative. Most thought it was too depressing. Jane Green did a fantastic job of capturing the essence of marriage. She kept it real. Every day is not going to be rosy. And you're not going to always like your mother-in-law. Green took ...

    Not one of her best. Too much moaning about the mother in law for me and the husband was a bit wimpy - Jane usually writes such strong, gorgeous men ...

    I love the way Jane Green really gets you into the characters lives. You feel like they are one of your close friends and you really feel for them when something goes wrong in their life. This was one of those books that while I was reading it I just kept telling myself 'it's ok I'll j...

    What a wonderful author Jane Green is! I thought this book was brilliant, such inciteful writing concerning the relationship between Mother-in-Law/Daughter-in-Law. I seethed along with Ellie in places, and then came to feel sorry for Linda. And I'm a sucker for slushy romance, so I ...

    Great girly book to any woman that has a mother-in-law or mother of a boyfriend that is way too involved. There is more of a story line than I expected and I was pleasantly surprised. ...

    Jane Green's books are so captivating, you find yourself bringing your current read with you everywhere...just in case you get a few minutes to check back in with the heroine of the story. "The Other Woman" is no exception, especially for those of us who have struggled with the adjust...

    I liked this book. It wasn't meant to be funny and uplifting. It was meant to show that relationships aren't perfect but if you can find a way to work through them its worth it. Jane Green wrote it in a way that made me feel Ellie's pain/anger. Its easy to say that if it were me I woul...

    **WARNING, SPOILERS BELOW** This was my first Jane Green book, and this is the first of many more to come! I absolutely adored this book and the storyline behind it! I related to some of the characters and I really liked Ellie. I sympathized with her a lot especially when she had to d...

    I have to say I am a fan of most of Jane Green books. There have only been two in which I cannot say I was impressed. I brought The Other Woman by Jane Green and took it away with me for the weekend to read and I have to say I couldn't put it down, I was very impressed and thoroughly e...

    It was an okay read. I liked it. A bit too dramatic when it comes to the romance, in my opinion. But I liked that the book took a turn that i didn't really expect toward the end. ...

    Was like reading a semi-autobiography of my life! It hit very close to mother in law territory! ...

    Expecting a super cliche this turned out to be pretty good. An unexpected perspective, different from the conventional dramatic thinking when it comes to the in-laws, this was actually fun and warm and fuzzy and made you realize that it takes two hands to clap. One of those weekend r...

    The fact that the cover of this book is pink AND sparkly, should have had me running a mile. But after reading a few heavy books, I wanted something fluffy and light. It actually took me by surprise as it wasn't the run of the mill chic-lit and had a definate darker side. Eliie has ...

    Incredibly bland. In the end I hated every single character in this story minus the sister in law. Unlike what is written on the blurb it's NOT a page turner and I almost gave up several time. I really wanted a fun and light read because I've been very busy lately and don't have much h...

    Two stars which could be one, as nothing nice or memorable happens. Quite on the contrary, the main character, Ellie Cooper, born Black, is a serious contender for "Miss Stupidity Cow"contest. She's selfish, egotist, absurd, lazy (do you hear something about her domestic abilities?) ...

    EXCERPT: 'Dan and Ellie. Ellie and Dan. Mrs Dan Cooper. Mrs Ellie Cooper. Ellie Cooper.' I trill the words out, thrilling at how unfamiliar they sound, how they will be true in just over a month, how I got to have a fairy-tale ending after all. . . And, as I'm tapping the coffee gr...

    "So damn readable!" - this was critical acclaim for one of Jane Green's other books, but it is very true! The storyline here was pretty standard: girl meets boy, they fall in love, get married, have a child, all surrounded by her girl friends and an overpowering mother-in-law, then the...

    This is not my favorite Jane Green book. But, it was OK. Very good the beginnings then a little dull half way through the book. Ellie Black meets Dan Cooper they fall in love an marry. Ellie's mother was an alcoholic and dies when she was a child. Ellie always want to be part of a c...
