Summary

Is love just an illusion? To the outside, Clare has everything: a beautiful home, a devoted husband and daughter, and plenty of money. But she is bored.

And she is plagued by doubts. Her husband Clive spends most of the year abroad - but what does he do after work hours? And her daughter Sally claims to spend all her time with horses and homework - but what about boys?

Lonely, thwarted and unfulfilled - and against Clive's wishes - Clare takes a job managing a café. Her ambition is to experience real life, to escape the imaginary feelings that plague her. But when a handsome stranger walks through the door, there is nothing imaginary about her feelings....

Must read

I really enjoyed this book. Once I started couldn’t put it down. Even my partner had to listen with me. I would recommend this book to everybody you sure to get something out of it. Beautifully written and the characters are relateable.....

I will be reading more by Katie Flynn.

Mmmm enjoyed , but not believable

If it was not for my favourite reader, I would have dumped this book half way through. To be honest it did not seem believable, no woman to my mind would behave as portrayed in the book, was all a little fluffy for want of a better word,and the ending somewhat predictable and dry.
