'Bound to delight fans and guaranteed to put O'Flanagan on the bestsellers list - yet again' (Irish Independent Review)
'An absorbing and upredictable drama' (Australian Women's Weekly)

A gripping novel that will make readers wonder, as so often in Sheila O'Flanagan's bestselling books: what would I do? From the author of MY MOTHER'S SECRET and SUDDENLY SINGLE.See all Product description

Frank who is on the road a lot has a serious accident and ends up in a coma and the police notify each of his two wives from the documents, phones and car registration plate. If the second wife, Iona, had been a mistress she would not have been notified and would perhaps have been aware that Frank had a first wife, Sally. Sally has a teenaged daughter and is pregnant again.
The rest of the book deals with the two women coming to terms with the situation, sharing bedside duties and grudgingly getting to like each other. I doubt that this would really happen, although it has to be recognised that they are both victims and that Iona was unaware that Frank was attached.
There is a sub plot involving the police detective who investigates the case of bigamy - still a crime, though against the state rather than one of deception of a person - and her own unprogressive love life.
The story could have been shortened to make it more snappy as it does flatten and there are too many of Frank's semicomatose meanderings which just pad it out. Many women in Sally's place would have been filing for divorce against the comatose Frank, and I have to believe that most women in Iona's place would have more self-respect than to trot in meekly to sit at his bedside for months instead of getting on with their lives and forgetting this loser.
Not a very satisfying read. I'm pleased I didn't save it for a holiday or long journey, I'd have been dreadfully disappointed!
- Once again quite likeable characters. You can't decide who to like and hate.
-She develops the story quite beautifully. Even when the women become friends. It really gels.
- I didn't realise the twist till after the accident. Kept me intrigued.
-Great secondary story with the policewoman.
Why u shouldn't
- Can't fault it. Read it now.
I enjoyed this book and read it quite quickly as once I got into I wanted to kmow what was going to happy. I like all of the charactors and found them intersting/different from one another. I thought the ending was a bit predictable - yet I wasnt disappointed.
One question I would ask is if you found out your husband was married to someone else as well, would you and the other woman really become such good friends?
I would recommend this to all of my friends, esp for a holiday/beach read.
Instead it was an emotive, heart warming tale of betrayal, deception and deceit!
O'Flanagan via Frank's coma gave an insight as to what may have turned Frank in to a bigamist in the first place. Although I was left with the feeling that both wives had been incredably trusting and gullable, you cant help feeling sorry for them and what they are going though.
As always with books by O'Flanagan it is a well written story that leaves you with the feeling that although things haven't gone the way the women expected them to go they will cope. A good read!
