Those Other Women
by Moriarty, Nicola

Using a private social media group to vent about her troubles, Poppy is upended by an unknown member who creates drama by leaking private posts, a situation that is further complicated by an employer's painful secret. 75,000 first printing.

Poppy, already distressed when her husband leaves her for her best friend, finds herself rejected again when a local Facebook group doesn't accept her because she's not a mum. Tired of being pushed aside by mothers and their kids, Poppy and her friend Annalise start their own Facebook group dedicated to women who have chosen not to have children. Before long, what starts out as a fun escape turns evil when a member of Poppy and Annalise's group begins sharing their posts with the mums group, starting a series of destructive events that may expose secrets on both sides. Moriarty (The Fifth Letter?, 2017) takes another look at friendships and the secrets that can destroy them. Focusing on building the characters as much as the suspense, Those Other Women tugs at the threads of relationships among women, asking why we end up tearing down those we should be helping to stand up. Filled with humor and likable characters who are flawed like the rest of us, Moriarty bravely questions why we hold onto our secrets and hold one another in judgment.
