5.0 out of 5 stars Only a shame it is so short! 7 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I download this to my kindle as I wanted a quick read, this is certainly that! I think all 3 stories are around 37 pages in total! Tagged onto the end of these are opening chapters of Louise Candlish's new book.

My favourite of the short stories is actually the last one, Doing the Wrong Thing. This just as suggested is about a women who goes off on a weekend with her friends, not all is as it seems. I love stories which take place on planes or travelling and this is just that. I just wish it had been a little longer as I read in about 10 minutes!

This is a very quick read, however it gives an insight into Louise Candlish's writing (this was the first of hers I have read before) and it was free, cannot complain about that!

A good holiday read. The stories well told. Not as deeply developed as her usual stories but still an enjoyable read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely short read 17 Feb 2014

The synopsis tells you enough about the stories to entice the reader into the world of adultery.
Through each story you get a different opinion on the subject.
The Alibi: Kim knows her employee is having an affair.
The Assignation: Agnes is the victim of adultery.
Doing the Wrong Thing: A woman on the way to cheat.

I really enjoyed Agnes' story, particularly the descriptions at the group sessions.

This is a fast paced, quick read that has left me eager to read more from Louise Candish, thanks to the sample chapters that were included.
it was nice to experience the pace and style of writing of her full length novels.
