Least favourite Carole Matthews book,
This review is from: Let's Meet on Platform 8 (Kindle Edition)
I was expecting an uplifting read, but to be honest I found this story a tad depressing. I couldn't warm to the heroine, not just because she was having an affair with a married man (who has young children), but because she was less than loyal to her best friend. I couldn't sympathise with the hero's angst - he was a cheat and using the usual excuses (wife didn't understand him, got into a rut etc. etc.). His behaviour forced his wife into doing something she wouldn't have normally done. Matthews uses this as a way to make the wife more understanding of her husband's affair!!! I'd like to say more but can't give away too much of the plot.
Some plus points are that I thought it was well-written, and the end wasn't predictable. But now I need to go and read a cheerier book.
