Jen and her partner, Michael, met at a fancy dress party almost four years ago. Michael made it clear from the start he didn’t want children as he already has a son from a former relationship. Jen has just discovered she’s pregnant and is apprehensive of Michael’s reaction and elated because she’s been quashing her desire to be a mother. Despite her friend Marcia’s urging she didn’t set out to deceive Michael, it’s just one of those unforeseen occurrences. Jen has every intention of telling Michael immediately but he arrives home on a motorbike, not very family orientated, having traded in the car. Jen is also nervous because Michael seems on edge lately and she wonders if he’s having a mid-life crisis. Not to mention the fact his previous relationships have never lasted longer than four years.
After talking to Hannah, her ex’s mother who she is very close to, Jen decides to do all she can to save her relationship with Michael, which involves drastic action. If she can find out, and understand, why Michael’s past relationships didn’t last she might be have an idea how to save her own.
Jen feels Michael has always held something of himself back and coupled with his strange behaviour, causes Jen to suspect he is planning on ending things between them. That feeling and Jen’s secret affects them both until it seems nothing will be able save their relationship.
I enjoyed reading the book very much. Romance isn’t usually a genre I choose unless it has other elements to the story. This book deals with some serious issues and is well crafted, sensitive and with no over exaggerated, slushy sentimentality. Characters are well defined and mostly easy to relate to.Read more ›
What follows is the story of Jen's search for the truth of Michael's past relationship. For anyone who has ever been in a complicated relationship, her meeting of Michael's exes will have a familiar emotional pull. Wouldn't we all love a look at our lover's past to understand just where we stand? But as in real life, relationships are complicated and some secrets are never meant to be revealed.
Margaret Johnson has created a strong female lead who feels deeply and faces the challenges of her life head on. This tightly written, emotional story at times is a true page turner with enough angst to pull readers to the end. It's not quite a beach read, more like a big cup of tea snuggled under a blanket on a rainy day pleasure.
You can enjoy this one on the beach, but it has an emotional heft that will stick in your mind long after you've finished it.
I received an advance reading copy of this book in return for an honest review.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and found Jen a very likeable main character. Most of the book is told by Jen in the first person, and in the present tense. The rest is from Michael’s POV, (mostly flashbacks), in the third person and in the past tense. Although I don’t normally like reading books written in the present tense, on this occasion it worked very well with the two styles complementing each other brilliantly. It gave the different POVs a completely distinct feel.
The book was a rollercoaster of emotions. I cried on several occasions, laughed on some and actually shouted at Jen out loud on one occasion! The author captured the atmosphere of both the Norfolk coast and the more exotic Cuba beautifully, and her descriptions were delightful.
I would highly recommend this as a great book to curl up with on a chilly day. A lovely read.
