“Sam really knew how to handle people, I thought in admiration. He was so self-assured, confident and articulate, but he always listened to what I had to say as if it was the most interesting thing in the world and never spoke down to me. He made me feel important. Or was he simply saying what I wanted to hear like he did with Spencer?”
Karen King, The Mother-in-Law

“The Miller’s Arms was only a ten-minute walk away. And a short stroll would do Phil good, as would a chat with Tom, thought Freya, although she wished he’d arranged the meeting for tomorrow so that she could have some peace to work with him out of the house. She was finding it increasingly difficult to work from home. Phil was constantly interrupting her and she was beginning to feel claustrophobic being in the house with him most days, but he insisted that he felt too vulnerable for her to return to working in the office all week.”
Karen King, The Stranger in My Bed

“The past doesn't matter. Our life starts from now”
Karen King, The Mother-in-Law
