I’m all confuzzled with the days this week – the Bank Holiday has thrown me off. How can it be Wednesday already??
I’ve read all Jane Green’s books over the years, and have found her more recent novels a bit hit and miss, however, I’m very much enjoying this one. It’s about a happily married woman in her mid-40s who meets a young, handsome stranger in a bar, what happens next, and the consequences. I’m about halfway through and can’t wait to pick it up again.
Diane Chamberlain is up there in my top three authors of all time, so I was delighted when some of her earlier works were recently published in the UK for the first time. I’ve just finished this one, which she wrote in around 1991, I think, and loved it – not my favourite of her books, but still well-written and believable.
I’ve borrowed the Amazon blurb, which gives a far better and more succinct overview of the story than I could:
“Disillusioned actress Eden Riley leaves a life of Hollywood glamour and a broken marriage to return to her mother’s childhood home in rural Virginia. In search of answers about her mother, a famous children’s author who died when she was very young, she meets the handsome yet mysterious Ben Alexander, an archaeologist and friend of her Uncle. But Ben has his own demons, and a secret that threatens to destroy their newfound happiness. Now Eden must make a heart-breaking decision as she struggles to lay the ghosts of the past to rest and come to terms with her own future.”
Next I’m going to read this, which has been on my Kindle for ages, and has some very good reviews. I’m looking forward to it.
