Good but not brilliant
on 10 September 2010
It's unusual for me to find an Erica James book that I want to give less than 4 stars, but this one just didn't draw me along as much as the others have. I found the main character, Clara, faintly annoying - just too perfect, and she even displays her perfection in choosing a sensible married man to have an affair with. She can't do anything less than perfectly.
Having said that, I still enjoyed it, and was caught up in the lives and troubles of the people I met within the pages. There is a plot twist that takes a slightly different turn from the usual in her books, and this was welcome.
