Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Allie Crawford has two great kids, a wonderful husband, a good job. Now it’s all got to fall apart to make a good tale. Husband Wade is involved in a financial scam, so is her boss Murray but to what extent and whom to trust, Allie is unsure. A beautiful woman, Jacky, appears to be on Allie’s side but as the reader you do wonder about her agenda. Is she after husband Wade or the financial scandal rewards? It is all up in the air – then first love James appears on the scene … oh what fun. Actually this is not your average chic-lit read. It is sensitive, unexpected and honest with a heroine facing real challenges. It is a hard-to-put-down page-turner with a powerful message.

If you like Holly Peterson you might also like to read books by Jojo Moyes, Jill Kargman and Liane Moriarty.

Synopsis

The Idea of Him by Holly Peterson

From the New York Times bestselling author of THE MANNY comes a vibrant novel of love, life lessons and learning to trust yourself Allie Crawford has the life she always dreamed of - a career at a high-profile PR firm; two kids she adores; and a husband, Wade, who is everything she thought a man was supposed to be. But when Allie finds Wade locked in their laundry room with a stunning blonde in snakeskin heels, a scandal ensues that flips her life on its head. And she starts to think maybe she's fallen in love not with Wade himself - but with the idea of him. Captivating and seductive, told in a whip-smart voice, The Idea of Him is a novel of conspiracy, intrigue, and intense passion - and discovering your greatest strength through your deepest fears.

Reviews

'Fast-paced and intriguing, glamorous and real - not only a great read but a tutorial in how to be your own best friend.'
Elin Hilderbrand, New York Times bestselling author of Beautiful Day

'A gripping, sophisticated story of high life suspense that kept me riveted till I'd finished...hugely enjoyable and vividly satisfying.'
Tina Brown Praise for THE MANNY:

'Sharp and hugely enjoyable...Fans of New Yorker must-bys The Devil Wears Prada and The Nanny Diaries should be rushing this one to the tills faster than SJP at a Manolo sample sale. *****'
Heat

'A fabulously sharp skewering of the silly-rich in New York. I couldn't put it down. We should ALL get a Manny.'
Plum Sykes, author of Bergdorf Blondes
