Jane is married to Jake, he's currently unemployed, she'd like a baby. Carrie is a career women and likes to be in control of her relationships. Jane is married to Neal and has three children and a busy chaotic life, yet all this is turned upside down when Marta invites Tom to a surprise dinner and offers him a place to stay.
Tom is Jane's ex and he's Carrie's ex and he's about to cause a rift for Marta too. Old wounds are opened, new wounds are made and Tom believes he can carry on as he pleases while others suffer.
I enjoyed how each women worked through her insecurities and found the strength to pull together in the end.
This is a book about the strength of relationships, with a feel good ending.
When Tom re-enters their world, their friendship begins to fall apart, and we watch in absolute fascination as the story plays out. He is a total monster - quite over the top really, but wonderfully drawn and totally believable - whose actions frequently had me gasping. The characterisation in this novel is absolutely excellent - this isn't a book you simply read, it's a book you feel, and when the friends hurt, you hurt too.
It's a novel with big themes - love, friendship, honesty, standards of right and wrong, loyalty, forgiveness, retribution - but it's also an excellent story that has you gripped throughout as you explore the characters, their relationships and their lives past and present. The author writes quite wonderfully - an easy flowing style that draws you in, and keeps you reading. She really is a very gifted story teller. And there are images in this book that will stay with me for a long while - some funny, some shocking, some totally heartbreaking.
I plan to read more by Jenny Harper - I really enjoyed this one, and I'm rather kicking myself that I haven't discovered her before.
Tom’s arrival is like a pebble being tossed into a pool. The ripples spread, affecting every aspect of the women’s’ lives. Marta is unaware of the nature of his history with her two friends. As they both desperately try to keep the past away from the present she finds Tom’s presence affecting her own relationship with husband Jake. Tom’s return inevitably forces secrets to the surface. He is quite the most unpleasant character I have ever met in a book. He’s arrogant, selfish and a bully. He is totally unscrupulous in his dealings with the three women – in his dealings with anyone actually! Breezing through life he takes advantage of his good looks not only to take what he wants but as a sexual predator using women and casting them aside once their usefulness is at an end. He trades on Carrie and Jane’s fear of discovery to get what he wants. It’s not until they find themselves in possession of something they can use against him that they begin to fight back. But before they can do that they have to open up and be completely honest with each other…
A great book, well rounded believable characters, I couldn’t put it down.
