After a soul-destroying breakup with her ex, Smith, Effie Abbott has met the man of her dreams. She’s had the whirlwind romance and the fairy-tale wedding to the charming and suave Oliver Barton-Cole, and life seems firmly back on track.
Things were never simple between Smith and Effie, so when he forces his way back into her life, Effie knows he’s a complication she doesn’t want or need. After all, she has Oliver, a man who loves her better than Smith ever did.
But when cracks in her marriage begin to emerge and Oliver shows flashes of a darker side, Effie has to question just how well she really knows her husband, and whether Smith is back to derail her seemingly perfect marriage or save her from it.
I was sent this book from the publisher for an honest review
I absolutely loved this story as it covered the very serious subject of domestic violence and also the quest for one woman to find out who she is and what she really wants from her life.
I warmed to Effie the protagonist straight away and found myself rooting for her the whole way through the Novel and wanted to be with her and support her through everything she faced (so much so I read this book in one sitting). This book also really highlights the fact that you really don’t know what goes on behind closed doors and your should be mindful of this on a daily basis when dealing with people.
This Novel I think really has something for everyone and really should be on your tbr list.
