Publisher's Summary

Mel Taylor was thirteen years old when she found her Mr Right. Twenty years on they remain blissfully in love. She has the man she adores, a gorgeous daughter, a great job and a dream home. But Mel's seemingly perfect life is spoilt by a dark secret and a niggling fear that her good fortune can't last for ever. Despite her husband Adam telling her to live for the present and stop worrying about the future, Mel can't shake the feeling that someone is about to call time on their happiness. And then it happens.

Dark Chick Lit

This was the first book I'd ever read by Linda Green. Given the dark nature of the story, I'm reluctant to trust her again.

Throughout the story Mel, the wife, alerts us to something terrible she'd done in the past. This impacts many of her decisions, and one in particular. Adam, her husband, knows that Mel's perspective on life is one where she waits for the other shoe to drop into her very happy, perfect life.

Then the shoe does drop.While I don't mind a bit of tragedy in my chick lit, or realistic situations, I do mind that light beach reading doesn't have a lighthearted resolution. Although probably a "true to life" ending, it was depressing.

However, it is very well written.The juggling Mel does is appropriate.The inconsistent support she receives adds to the depth of the novel. Mel and Adam's daughter is simply adorable. The pace is good. Green's talent as a writer is evident.

As always, Aitcheson is a wonderful reader. She is one of my favorites.

It's possible that this type of story line is not typically Green. But since this was my first read by her, I cannot comment on that. If you can accept a dark topic and an ending that is unsettling, then by all means the book is fine. If you want something more along the lines of a Sophie Kinsella novel with lots of humor, then bypass it.

And then it happened

I loved this booked! I enjoyed the way that chapters were dedicated to one person at a time... telling their side of the story. The reader, Suzie Aitcheson, was brilliant, giving each character their own personality and voice.
I laughed out loud at some of Adam's comments while he was in a coma .... it was so easy to believe.
I was listening while gardening and never has weeding been so enjoyable!

An unusual and beautiful story

This is a story of love, hope and commitment. Memorable and uplifting and well narrated. I really enjoyed it. It's the second Linda Green novel I have read and I will read more; she writes with great insight and emotion.
