Shane Watson writes regular columns for the Sunday Times â€˜Styleâ€™ section and the New Statesman, and is a contributing editor to Easy Living magazine. She is the author of The One to Watch and Other Peopleâ€™s Marriages.
Satirical, clever novel on relationships with a nice premise for the protagonist, Anna who is using her friends as case studies for a book she is writing about marriage. Opening up and talking can be very unsettling and indeed give room to ponder, reflect and question. Not always a good idea, especially when itâ€™s difficult to be totally honest. With well thought-out characters and a good storyline, this was a rewarding read.Comparison: Lisa Jewell, Catherine Alliott, Adele Parks.Similar this month: Carole Matthews, Kirsty Crawford.
