Lifelong friends Liza and Molly have grown distant since Liza moved to Chicago. One night, when Molly’s husband Daniel is away on business, they have a video chat in a bid to reconnect. After an awkward start, the conversation is flowing easily when Molly has to go check on one of her children. Liza is horrified when she sees a masked man enter her friend’s house, and panics when the screen goes dark. She calls the police, and then—unable to get Molly to answer her phone—Liza jumps in her car and drives all night to make sure she is okay, only to be turned away by an angry Molly.

Those Other Women by Nicola Moriarty #Review @wmmorrowbooks


Poppy and her friend Annalise are sick and tired of the special treatment some of the women at her job get, just because they have children.Why should they constantly get to leave work early, and have more flexible hours, simply because they chose to have kids? And what’s the deal with the local Facebook group MOP (Mums Online in Parramatta) that only allowed mothers to join? Why wasn’t there a local group that only allowed women who chose not to have kids as members? They couldn’t do anything about the former, but they could do something about the latter—and that’s how NOP (Non-Mums Online in Parramatta) came to be.
