Mystery meets comedy and action in this well-written and highly addictive drama. The narrator finds herself spying on her husband and waits for him under a bed where she expects him to cheat on her with another woman.
She is in for a big surprise and subsequent surprises. Interspersed in the events are snippets about the couple, how she met him at College and fell in love.
This is hugely enjoyable and a real page turner – and I don’t use this term often. I found it difficult to put the book down.
There is a lot of humour and self-deprication in this. Although the woman seems obsessive and goes maybe too far in her spying, she remains likeable and relatable throughout. This is a very entertaining story that I can only recommend.
When the most bookish, clumsy geek manages to bag the most handsome,
beautiful man on campus – the man that all the other girls would happily
have thrown their Kappa Kappa Delta sisters under the bus for – then it
can’t end well. But Maggie has beaten the odds and is ten years into her
marriage with Jack. However, the pages in the book of fairytales are
beginning to smolder and burn as she starts to question his fidelity.
Forced into action by her suspicions, and hindered by her over-sexed
mother and under-brained friend, Maggie embarks on a search for truth.
What she finds, however, is an adventure that throws her directly into
the claws of danger and will make her wish that infidelity was the only
thing she had to worry about.
