Jane Green has such a talent for storytelling...another fantastic book!,
This review is from: Tempting Fate (Paperback)
I am a huge fan of Jane Green, and so I was very much looking forward to her latest release - Tempting Fate.
Gabby knew that she wanted to be with Elliot from the very first moment that she met him, and through twenty years of marriage she has never doubted her love for him. But her two daughters are growing up, and Gabby begins to feel as though her youthful days are slipping away...And then she meets Matt. Matt is young handsome, and he makes Gabby feel alive again. And in one reckless moment, she destroys everything she loves.
As with all Jane green books, I was very eager to start reading, and as soon as I picked the novel up, I became swept up in the words and before I knew it I was turning the last page. I was so gripped by the story that I read the entire book in one sitting, I just couldn't put it down!
The main story was particularly interesting, I knew as well as anyone else that what Gabby was doing was dangerous, but it was so believable that I was hooked to what I was reading. Gabby was a fantastic character, I liked how she wasn't perfect and how she had her faults like any of us. At first I wasn't sure whether I wanted to like her, but I did sympathize with her and I found myself really hoping that things would work out for her and the situations would be resolved.
I loved how realistic the novel was, it was a story that could happen to anyone, and that is what made it so compelling to read! The scenarios are so believable and the characters were so well-written that I just had to keep reading to see what would happen to them.
Loyal fans of Jane Green will be delighted by Tempting Fate, and I really hope that new readers are tempted to pick up this gripping book too. Jane Green is back with a fantastic novel - she has such a talent for storytelling and Tempting Fate will draw you in and keep you hooked until the very last word.
