Publisher's Summary

On the surface, Luke and Olivia Benning are a happily married couple. Some would even say that they’ve been more lavishly blessed than most, but then most didn’t know about the terrible secrets running through the foundations of their marriage. Once Olivia had thought that nothing could be more threatening to her life than the cancer that had almost killed her, but now she knows better. There were even times when she might have wished to put herself back into the hands of the doctors, rather than face what life is throwing at her now.
Set in France, A French Affair is a powerful and compelling novel of treachery, deception, lust, revenge, fear, heartbreak, forgiveness, and the greatest trickster of all - love.

I usually enjoy Susan Lewis's writing, but this is the first time I"ve listened to her on audio. The story was bland and uninteresting and predictable never mind the ridiculous GRATING french accent used by the narrator.I have yet to finish this audiobook, I'm sure only complete boredom would have to occur before I go back to it.

A French Affair

I have never reviewed a book before but this book is, quite frankly, unbelievable. The way in which the very recent death of a child is handled is so shallow as to be insulting. It is quite clear the author has absolutely no idea how an event such as this impacts on anyone, let alone a parent. I have close friends who lost a child 4 years ago and their grief is still very apparent. The return to virtually normal life of this family within weeks of their bereavement is almost cruel in its lack of regard for anyone finding themselves in this position. A disgrace.

Enjoyable read

Would you consider the audio edition of A French Affair to be better than the print version?

I am visually impaired, which is why I use Audible - I can no longer read print. The question is a little insensitive as I would imagine this is why many members use Audible.

What did you like best about this story?

The French setting - I love France and it transported me to many of the places I have visited.

What about Karen Cass’s performance did you like?

Everything - her French was really good and she read it with passion and empathy. A really good performance.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Nothing that particularly stood out.

Any additional comments?

This is a little different, and somewhat raunchier that Susan Lewis's usualy style. The description of the setting was wonderful and trnsported me there. I think the previous review/comment was somewhat harsh. After all, this was a bit of a "who dun it" story with a mother desparate to find aunswers. I did guess fairly early on one of the factors revealed towards the end, but wont divulge here in case it spoils it for future readers.
