review 1: This is the new novel by Lisa Jewell. The basic story is about Adrian and his three wives. Wife 1 was Susie and they had two children and he left her for wife 2 Caroline and they had three children when he left her for wife 3 Maya. At the very beginning of the novel, Maya is killed by a bus - is it an accident or suicide? Adrian spends the entire novel answering this question. He also does a lot of soul searching about whether he is a good father and a good person. The novel is good and the author handles the characters and the story very well. I didn't like the children, which made it a bit difficult to read but overall I did enjoy the book.
review 2: When you read a novel and absolutely love it (i.e. House We Grew Up In) there is a lot of (perhaps unfa
... moreir) expectation put on the next novel by the same author. Unfortunately I felt let down by this one. Maybe if I had read this one first I might have had a different opinion. Don't get me wrong- I enjoyed it. But I wasn't wowed by it. It was all just a little too perfect, quite a lot unrealistic. less
