I found I could not bring myself to give this book any stars at all,in fact I hated it so much that It was a struggle to keep reading it.I thought the characters were dreadful ,all very superficial with dreadful upper class pompous dialogue.There seemed to be so many people keeping secrets that might have made the plot exciting but I found I couldn't care less about any of them.
The ending was all too tweeand even the deathbed bit didn't invoke any emotion other than to make it sound like Aiden w...more

I'm very unsure about this. The plot was good, but everything else was a let down. I couldn't stand Richard's character; I found him gratingly fake, pompous and arrogant. I cannot see why Kate fell for him at all! I thought Kate's character was a bit one-dimensional and predictable in how she let Richard bulldoze his way into her life. Weak, disappointing characters that made for a weak, disappointing novel.

Not sure why this book was given the title ex-wives when the ex-wife played such a minor role in the story. The story itself wasn't a bad concept but it failed when it tried to weave corruption and intrigue into what would be have an otherwise okay story of learning to love after loss. Really it just never got going and I didn't really believe in the characters enough to care about the outcome.

Another book by another Tory politician's wife! However ... this is an extremely well written novel. If you like Joanna Trollope, you'll love this one. A very clever story, which weaves in the notion that we all have baggage, be it an ex-wife, late husband, or just past ghosts which still haunt us. It was extremely readable and had a very satisfying conclusion.

it was ok but felt a lot went unsaid and the finish left you with lots of questions

A thoroughly enjoyable book. The ending was a surprise given Richards passive aggressive qualities I could have imagined another chapter further down the line where things didn't work out quite as expected!
