Summary

A deliciously dark cautionary tale about falling in love with someone you shouldn't have.  

Would you risk your future for a night with your past?  

Molly Greene loves being married. Exciting adventures lie ahead for her and husband, Dan, that will change their lives forever, but Molly's not sure they're making the right choices.  

While teetering on the brink of the biggest decision she's ever faced, she sends an impulsive message to the very last person she ought to contact, someone who should have stayed forgotten and is now coming looking for her.  

When he finds her, there is no turning back. One night is all it takes to threaten everything she holds dear - for good.

Average; saved by narrator

I am a Lucy Dawson fan but felt this book was not as good as her other books. Not much of a story for the first 1/3 of the book, and in my opinion only saved by the excellent narration of Karen Cass.

Original

I was totally surprised, gave much food for thought. Very entertaining, good narration. The end was abit of a conundrum. . But loved it all the same.

Pleasant easy listen

So you're a happily married woman, your husband wants to try for a baby, you kind of want a baby but at the same time you're scared of having a baby so you're playing for time. Then you bump into an old boyfriend and sleep with him because you are drunk. In the morning you wake up next to him and tell him it was a big mistake, but he still has the hots for you and begins stalking you relentlessly and you feel this will threaten what you already have with your much loved husband...

Meanwhile we hear all about your circle of friends and your family life, your brothers, mother and father, grandfather, nieces and nephews. We hear about your parents-in-law with whom you perhaps have a less agreeable relationship...and so it goes on.

Oh yes, and the suspense bit, we spend most of the book wondering whether our heroine will manage to save her marriage. (I won't spoil the ending.)

Everything brought to life and made real by the excellent performance by Karen Cass.

Predictable

Really funny in parts and a great narrator but overall, so predictable it made me feel uncomfortable.

Great narrator

The ending was very anticlimatic. It just ended abruptly with no explanation. Kind of disappointing.
