Publisher's Summary

When her ten-year marriage to Alistair ends with his infidelity, Kate Easton vows she will not make the same mistake twice. She will never put herself - or her two children - through a relationship again. Then Alistair announces that his new wife is pregnant and he intends to cut his financial support to Kate. To keep her home she must divide it up and make way for a lodger. Enter Davis Calder, a glamorous and charismatic tutor with a failed marriage of his own behind him. He soon becomes a close friend to Kate, someone she can turn to in her difficulties with her unpredictable teenage daughter Roxy. Before she can stop herself Kate has fallen in love, broken her vow and accepted Davis's proposal of marriage. At last, it seems, she has the happy ending she deserves. Until, just days after returning from her honeymoon, she makes a discovery about her new husband that changes everything.

Painful. Not fun.

If you're in the mood for a painful, interesting book about relationships and middle aged women who have been treated harshly without retribution, then maybe this book is for you. I found this book excruciatingly uncomfortable. Maybe I'm sensitive, but....the story is sound, the narrator is good but is it joyful and uplifting? No. I was happy to see that some of the characters behaved beyond the good of themselves. If I had forsight, I wouldn't have used my credit. I am a coward - I like to read books that leave me feeling somewhat at peace - My addiction to Inspector Lynley not withstanding.

Denica Fairman is one of my favourite narrators, and I bought the book because she read it.

They story moves along at a good pace, difficult to put down.

I felt like the ending was abrupt, though.
