Publisher's Summary

When girl-about-town Charlotte discovers her husband has been arrested for fraud, she flees to Exmoor to nurse her broken heart - and finds she's not the only person whose life is in turmoil.
There's bad boy artist Sebastian, determined to drink the pub dry while his wife lives it up in London. Then Fitch, who is struggling to keep up with his wife's outrageous demands. And finally recent divorcee Penny, who is quietly determined to have more fun the second time around.
As Charlotte adapts to her new life, she turns to her newfound friends for advice. Can she find it in her heart to forgive her husband for what he did? And when she does, is it too late?

Lovely winter listen

One of my favourite listens for driving to and from work in the winter. The characters are over the top but believable. The plot bounces along at an enjoyable pace. Lovely.

I Got it; I Enjoyed it

I think despite being about 'celebrities' fall from grace, being married I can totally understand and have empathy for the main characters. From couples having their principles and ambition cross-wired to making every effort to make their marriage work, this book is one to which many can relate. I found it believable and realistic as well as dreamy; gently nudging readers to think about their own virtues, principles, ambition and dreams within the context of marriage. How far is one expected to make compromises in order to fulfil the vow to stand by their spouse "for better or worse"?

Unfortunately for me, the narrator seemed to have a limited voice range; did not perform so well with the accents and absolutely failed to portray youthfulness in the voices used for the young characters in the book (Hailey was made to sound like and old drugged-out hag).
