Secrets don’t stay secret for long… She spent her whole life being the perfect daughter, the perfect girlfriend, and was all ready to become the perfect wife. But after ditching her fiancé at the altar and escaping to Chicago, she marries smouldering stranger Joe Petrozzi three weeks after meeting him in a bar. At least this time, there’s no chance of cold feet. Married life starts out great: there’s the new job, a gorgeous, enigmatic husband and money’s not an issue. So what if she’s kept a few secrets from Joe – like where all her money came from. Joe’s been keeping secrets from her, too. But his might just get her killed.
Tore through this in a matter of hours, is brilliant and fast paced.
Loathed most of the characters (which of course is the whole point) so 10 out of ten to the author for achieving this whilst ensuring sympathy at the same time for the main character.
Depicts DV accurately without being sensationalist and shows it has no boundaries or respect for money or status.
More than happy to recommend this one, and I wish Rita Brassington every success with it.
Thanks to NG and the publishers for my copy.
