Sarah Broadhurst's view...


June 2007 Book of the Month

A happy marriage, a sexual fantasy and then everything gets out of control, quite alarmingly so towards the end. This is a tragic story with echoes of American Beauty. It is based on misunderstandings which at times are a bit head-shaking …. How could he have thought that … but as the reader you have to accept he did, go with it and watch the suffering. It is a fast, enjoyable read with some astute observations on modern marriage and illicit sex.

Similar this month: None but try Penelope Evans.
Comparison: Maggie O’Farrell, Joshilyn Jackson, Elisabeth Hyde.

Synopsis

Be Mine by Laura Kasischke

On Valentine's Day, Sherry, a college professor finds an anonymous love note in her locker: Be Mine. Her life has been a little askew since her only son left home, and though she has a happy, solid marriage with her husband, Jon, with whom she lives in her beautiful, isolated house in the country, how exciting is sex after twenty years with the same man? So she's intrigued, and not a little flattered by the notes as they continue, and embarks on a passionate and erotic affair. Her son's school friend, Garrett, is witness to the affair, her best friend, Sue, normally garrulous and chirpy, is strangely silent, and unusually, Jon is aware of the situation, adding some excitement to their own relationship. Then Garrett goes missing, swiftly followed by Sherry's lover, and what has seemed a very easy game to play, suddenly spirals out of control.

Be Mine is a stunning, compelling erotic thriller of how dangerous things can become when the boundaries of acceptable behaviour with family and friends are pushed to the edge.
