Read the whole thing in 1 day! A recommendation from my manager.

First things first: I guessed almost instantly what the 'husband's secret' was, but the story wasn't so much about what he'd done as it was what the repercussions were. It was interesting to read from the 3 women's' points of view, and how they interconnected, although I did feel like Tess' story was kind of irrelevant to the overarching plot. I did, however, find her plot line very addicting at times, but it did distract from the main story. At times, it was a little difficult to remember who was who as their 'voices' seemed pretty similar.

However, it was easy to gobble down. I really liked it when the authour did the 'what would've happened if...' bits, especially in the epilogue. It was cool to see how little actions had massive effects, even if you didn't know it at the time, if ever.

Also Lucy, Tess' mum (Tess was the one whose cousin and husband were having the affair) was my favourite character. She's exactly who I'd want if I was going through that sort of situation.
