A fairly entertaining story about a topical subject, but the characters were two-dimensional and the plot predictable. I knew before I was a quarter of the way through the book what was going to happen. All the women are ravishingly beautiful, the men handsome and supportive. The heroine, Susannah, annoyed me intensely, as she was always looking for a man to admire and love her. She was weak and pathetic, and a terrible mother to Neve. Can't believe she would not have picked up on the signals he ...more

Daughter Neve setting up her mother with an old flame was the greatest thing that she had done for her mother to be happy with all the horrible timing that her mother was going through with money problems etc ex partner in jail. Neve was doing a good deed for her mother, and then the monster in him came out. Making out that neve was lying. Nev and her mother had put their trust in to moving in with this man and all the time he had a horrible back ground which needed him to be seen to by his brot ...more

What would you sacrifice for love?

Susannah is married to Duncan, who is becoming known as a hot shot producer. Susannah is going to be starring in her first tv programme when she falls pregnant with Neve. Duncan develops a drug habit which spirals out of control and leads to the death of a young man for which Duncan spends 13 years in prison.

Left to bring up 13 year old Neve alone, Susannah is working all hours just too keep their heads above water but she’s sinking fast. Things have gotten so b
This book is compelling and entertaining, involving themes such as danger, romance, mystery and a little bit of tragedy. A little heavier than what I usually read but would recommend to any of my friends.
Interesting read, will keep you entertained with some very lively characters, although I must say that the lead character Susannah is a very lost soul, always needing a man around! poor thing, I think if she trusted herself and spent some time alone she would have more stable relationships. Besides, the girl on the cover is so ill represented by the character in the book.Nevertheless, an entertaining read!
This book meant a lot of laughter but also a lot of heart wrenching moments. Taking up a subject that is so apparent in today's society but still silenced down if possible, because it's to painful thinking about it. But Susan Lewis was able to approach it in a way that still made you want to continue reading. All characters with an incredible strength to deal with the situation handed to them.
Andrea Howarth-Salazar
Although this book was easy to read and entertaining, I found the characters disappointingly shallow. Alan, for example - what were his motives for abusing a string of teenage girls? The plot was predictable and I feel that all of the characters lacked sufficient emotional depth.
I wanted to like this book but, i just couldn't. I couldn't connect with the characters, and the plot was predictable. As soon as Alan was introduced, i knew what was going to happen which lead me to skipping pages to see if i was right, and i was.
Não me convenceu, o livro podia ter metade do tamanho!

This is quite a depressing read but addictive too. It touches upon a subject I didn't see coming. I was a bit disappointed with the ending, but won't mention more as I don't want to spoil it.

I thought this started off really good but the story seemed to be dragged out for longer than it should have, also thought the ending was pretty naff too. Dissapointed in this book.

Easy read, quite predictable ending. Skimmed over the last couple of chapters but enjoyed the story as a whole
Susan Lewis is one of my favourite authors and I enjoyed this book very much.

My mother was one of 13 children who, at 20, persuaded my father to spend his bonus on an engagement ring instead of a motorbike. We were a normal, happy, nuclear family, living in a spanking new council house on the outskirts of town – my mother’s pride and joy. But we were going to do better, my mother ...more
