I am delighted to join the blog tour for Her Husband’s Mistake by Sheila O’Flanagan today! My thanks to Anne Cater at Random Things Tours for the invitation to join and the wonderful review copy received from Headline via NetGalley!
Roxy’s marriage has always been rock solid.
After twenty years, and with two carefree kids, she and Dave are still the perfect couple.
Until the day she comes home unexpectedly, and finds Dave in bed with their attractive, single neighbour.
Suddenly Roxy isn’t sure about anything – her past, the business she’s taken over from her dad, or what her family’s future might be. She’s spent so long caring about everyone else that she’s forgotten what she actually wants. But something has changed. And Roxy has a decision to make.
Whether it’s with Dave, or without him, it’s time for Roxy to start living for herself . . .
Headline Review * 30th May 2019 * Hardback * £18.99
Sheila O’Flanagan’s, Her Husband’s Mistake, has one of the most eye-catching opening paragraphs I’ve seen for a while. It very cleverly drew me right into the story from the start.
This book was a look at what can happen and the choices that need to be made when your husband commits an act of infidelity that you are unfortunate enough to witness first-hand, purely by chance.
It was written in the first person and the reader was given a fascinating insight into what was going on in the mind of the protagonist, throughout the story.
I loved the character of Roxy and to my mind, she was thoughtful, caring and very astute.
Sheila O’Flanagan’s writing style helped to make this novel a joy to read and I liked how she managed to make the relatively mundane minutiae of life sound interesting. The pacing of the story was absolutely perfect and although there were no huge surprises, I wasn’t expecting any with this type of novel.
I thought I had read some of this author’s work before but none of her previous titles sounded familiar to me, so I will definitely be reading some of them in the future.
All in all, this was a beautifully told story that I highly recommend.
I received a complimentary digital copy of this novel, at my own request, from Headline via NetGalley. This review is my own unbiased opinion.
