"Ryan skillfully manipulates the story, the twists, and her characters to bring multiple story lines to a successful conclusion. Politics, murder, journalism, crime investigation. There are so many angles to this story. And, the reader really won't realize how many lines are being manipulated until the very end of this superb crime novel."

"The Other Woman is riveting, intriguing, and well worth the read. The characters are very well defined, conversations are interesting and intelligent, and the narrative is clean, crisp and very easy to follow. This exciting story has murder, dishonesty, betrayal, a smidgen of romance, and explosive secrets. Lots of layers to this tale, and they all come together and should be devoured like a scrumptious cake."
—Betty Cox, FRESH FICTION
"The Other Woman is a tightly plotted whirlwind of a book that mixes sex, politics, a little murder, and a lot of revenge. I thoroughly enjoyed this book...fast-paced, engaging, unpredictable and fun."

"Hank Phillippi Ryan's smart, fun thriller set in the world of Boston news...will have you flipping the pages faster and faster as you get to the twisty end. This is a story with several threads, and like a Harlan Coben novel, they are all ultimately related, though, also like a Coben novel, you're never sure quite how until the end of the book. Ryan also shares Coben's brisk storytelling style as she relates her complicated thriller with an assured voice that won't leave the reader confused, but rather wanting to turn the pages."
—Aunt Agatha's Bookstore
"The Other Woman...is a whirlwind affair of lies, deceit, and treachery. Greed, love, and hate are all painted on an intricate canvas filled with characters who have their own agendas—and human failings. Adding Ryan to my list of 'don't miss' authors."
