Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A gritty, hard-hitting, engrossing novel of two brothers and their perfect ‘surfaceâ lives which hide some pretty horrid habits, especially those of the younger one, an absolute bounder. I became completely absorbed in this book; a real page-turner but sophisticated, sharp and very perceptive. Itâs extremely good on how alcoholics behave and their reasons for drinking. The storylines are excellent and all the characters entirely believable. A first-rate read.

Similar this month: None but try Santa Montefiore.
Comparison: Joanna Trollope, Libby Purves, Diana Appleyard.

Synopsis

Husbands and Other Lovers by Jane Elizabeth Varley

Husbands and Other Lovers is the gripping story of the two Agnew brothers - and the women who love them.

James Agnew, a brilliant City lawyer, is married to Susannah. They have the perfect life - on the surface. A Surrey house, two successful careers and a lifestyle to be envied. But behind closed doors their marriage is a battleground as Susannah fights the effects of her husband's drinking, hiding it from those closest to her, and struggling with the painful memories it raises about her own past. And when James's life takes a dramatic turn, will Susannah stand by her husband?

James' younger brother Robert is the founder of one of London's top PR agencies and a millionaire at thirty-eight. Robert weaves a web of lies and fantasies to entrap the women in his life - and to ensure that they are never free from his control. Tabitha, his ex-wife, must fight for her freedom - and her daughter. Jasmine, his ex-girlfriend, faces losing everything that is precious to her. And what of Natasha, his beautiful but vulnerable new girlfriend? Will she fall under his spell to become just another victim...?
