This is a page-turner stuffed with interesting characters and ideas, skilfully pulled together in a classy read that I couldn't put down...It's different and sophisticated and I raced through it --Daily Mail 6/7

I spent 3 hours solidly finishing off the book which is very unusual for me but I had the time and was keen to reach the conclusion. I really feel with good books that you are there with the person. I felt at all times that I was alongside Kate, the main character, and was hoping her new boyfriend wasn't going to let her down.
The characters are all well-developed and rounded and they really did come to life on the page. I will probably re-read this book at some point too so I've got no hesitation in recommending it.
The twists and turns and the rollercoaster ride it takes you through are amazing. One can really empathise with the central character's (Kate) dilemmas. Without giving too much away, the pain she feels for the loss of loved ones is so real, I challenge you not to cry.
She also highlights the menace that is drug abuse, not necessarily from an end-users perspective, but from the poor creatures who sell the raw product to make a living.
In short, Sandra has done an amazing job again, everything is factually correct, but honest.
If you don't read it this summer, you will not know what you are missing out on.
I was gripped from the first paragraph and didn't want to put the book down.
Kate, the protagonist is an interesting, smart and caring young widow who falls in love with Richard, a well-known documentary maker whose ex-wife suffers from Bipolar. Although it is clear Richard is utterly in love with Kate he feels very responsible for his ex wife and his teenage children and, throughout the book, you wonder if he is going to go back to his ex for the sake of his kids.
Kate, on the other hand, has her own problems to handle. Her dad is dying with cancer and her mother is hiding something very serious. The mystery and Kate's quest for an answer kept me glued to the book.
Sandra Howard is not afraid of tackling some very difficult issues and, in fact, she manages it brilliantly. Throughout the book, her characters have to make life changing decisions and you are with them every step of the way.
If you are looking for a book that feels real, doesn't lose pace and keeps you gripped, this is one for you.
Really good recommendation for a book club.Ex-Wives
That is not all. The book is another of Sandra Howard's. First a popular model, later wife of a leader of a political party fighting a general election and now a writer, but the same personality and - looks. Undownputtable
