Jane Green was one of the first authors I read when my passion for reading began. Jemima J and Straight Talking were favourites of mine. I haven't read any of her more recent books so I was looking forward to reading The Accidental Husband to see if her new books still live up to her old ones.

Sylvia is struggling having her husband continuously away with work and her mother who is very demanding and negative, now to top things off she is beginning to worry about her daughter Eve.
On the other side of the coast Maggie is living the life of Luxury, she isn't around much for her children but when her daughter delivers some devastating news her life begins to crumble down around her.

This book was nothing but trouble! As I put my dinner in the oven and began to make a start on this book I was instantly hooked and the chapters are short so you keep thinking oh just one more but of course that lead to another and another until before I knew it dinner was burnt! Then to top it off I couldn't put the book down so stayed up until 1.30am to finish it and then slept through my alarm so was late for work! So is this book worth reading? Well I think you have your answer!

Sylvia's character in particular has been developed very well she is a devoted and caring daughter, mother and wife. My heart went out to her with the problems that lay heavily on her shoulders. The situation regarding her daughter Eve was also very well written being told from both sides of the story from how both Eve and Sylvia felt about the situation. This really is a very delicate subject but it was covered very well.
I didn't like Maggie's character when we first met her but towards the last half of the book her character came round full circle in the end and she also became a joy to read.

Sylvie never thought she'd fall in love again after the death of her husband, leaving her to raise their young daughter on her own. But then she meets Mark who offers Sylvie love, passion and security as well as being a wonderful father to Eve. Sylvie and Mark don't have a conventional marriage, with Mark working away from home for large chunks of time but the marriage has worked for them until now. Until recently, Sylvie had been happy for Mark to work away, leaving her and Eve to spend time together but she's started to want him around more.

Maggie has what she always wanted; handsome, successful husband, happy children and a beautiful home to be proud of. Maggie enjoys her luxurious lifestyle, hosting lunches and jetting off on holidays but her lavish lifestyle is about to come crashing down around her.

Sylvie and Maggie don't seem to have anything in common but they are about to be bound together by a shocking secret.

It's been a long time since I've read a new Jane Green book but I'm glad I read this one as I thought it was a fantastic read that had me hooked. I didn't want to put the book down, especially at the beginning as I awaited the big reveal of the secret. It's quite clear what the secret is going to be but I was looking forward to seeing it unfold and the fallout that would ensue. My only criticism of the book would actually be at the beginning too because we only get to know Sylvie, Mark and Eve in the first part (approximately 150 pages). I can see why it was written this way as the first part is building towards the big reveal but, as it was obvious what the secret is, I didn't think it was necessary to keep Maggie held back for so long.

Family Pictures or The Accidental Husband to give the book it's UK title is yet another joy from American author Jane Green. I've been reading Green's books for many years now, since Jemima J and Bookends right through to her current releases like The Patchwork Marriage and The Love Verb.

As a regular reader I've noticed a change in her style over the years as she moves from her novels being based on young singleton's finding love to very much suburban housewives struggling with family and relationship dilemmas. Her settings have become distinctly middle class and her heroines often the well bred matriarch of wayward teens.

This is not to say it's a bad thing. Just an observation that some of the edginess has gone and instead has been replaced by heartwarming stories that reassure me the author is, like me, moving into a different phase of her life.

In this novel we meet Sylvie and her daughter Eve, who are preparing for Eve to fly the nest leaving Sylvie worried about her future and Eve hiding a worrying secret. We also meet Maggie and her daughter Grace who are at a similar point in life but lack the closeness of mother and daughter due to Maggie's endless social climbing.

There is a devastating link that both women share but are unaware of and when their daughters meet for the first time the secret is about to be blown wide open and will change all their lives forever.

A strong and moving story it is pacy and keeps you gripped. Short chapters moving between the 4 female lead characters it is amazing how quickly the chapters fly by. Green has become the master at writing strong Middle Ages female heroines but she also retains a wonderful ability to still relay the voice of the teenager beautifully.
