Summary

Harriet Lockwood has never really bonded with her daughter the way she has with her three sons. Then one day, she discovers why. The girl she’s raised for the last fifteen years is not her biological child. As a consequence, two families are plunged into a storm of bitter rivalries and unexpected alliances.

Not the best

Too many unnecessarily very explicit sex scenes for my liking. Don’t buy it if you don’t want to hear this sort of detail.

Yawn....

Started well - very well, I was happily listening for several hours and really enjoying it, then it happened.... the style of writing completely changed! It was as though someone else had started writing certain chapters. It suddenly became very rushed, as though it had been badly edited. Chapters that had no relevance to the story really were left in and elements of the story that should have been eleborated upon were rushed through.
The character Harriet was diplorable. Very unlikeable! She started off a nice person, but her dialog was just terrible and she became horrible. Oliver, her husband is a non-descript, boring yawn, Zoe (the other mother) just needed a slap, talk about wet! The two girls that are swapped dont really get going, then just as they do, the book ends!
The story could have been so much better! The characters more likeable and the planning of a major event in the story better set out.... DON'T bother - use your credit on something better written!
