Publisher's Summary

Evelyn Tester is sleepwalking through her suburban life - until a late-night phone call startles her awake. Her husband, a prestigious psychiatrist, has been in an accident. And he isn't alone.
Suddenly Evelyn's world isn't as tidy as she thought. And in the midst of it all is Juliette, not only her husband's secret lover but also his patient. If news of the affair were to get out, it would ruin more than just Evelyn's marriage. Although it's a bitter pill for Evelyn to swallow, protecting her family means staying silent - even if, as she begins to discover, the night of the accident has consequences far more dangerous than the unmasking of an affair.
But the more Evelyn learns about Juliette's picture-perfect life - complete with a handsome, unsuspecting husband - the more she yearns for revenge...and satisfaction. Her growing obsession fuels her rage, burning away her complacency. What will be left of her after it flames out?

Self pitying schlock

First world pampered selfish woman self-obsessed wallowing in her victim-hood. Omg she needs to go and work in the Peace Corps or something. So badly written too. Can't believe I wasted time on this

emotional drama

I thought this was about a murder, but it's all about an affair. if you like that kind of stuff the narrator is good . personally, it's not my taste.

Good, relaxing read.

Any additional comments?

It's true, as other reviewers have highlighted, that this is not really a thriller. It is however an absorbing, enjoyable read/listen. My favourite genre is modern crime fiction. Sometimes I need a break from the violence, death and misery, but I don't like the cookie cutter stuff thta has become known as 'chic lit', so it can be difficult to find a lighter read in fiction. This fits the bill nicely. It is not alltogether light, but aside from the consequences of an accident which we view from afar, there is no death or violence. There is marital discord, despair, frustration, anger, jealousy, lust, sex and regret. If you like stories focused on relationships, this may be for you. It also has a nice twist toward the end.

A good read

I really enjoyed this book, particularly the 'what if's' that it conjures up in your mind. A good coming of middle age book, and enjoyable summer read.
