We have always been a fan of herâs style that tackles tricky problems with a light sensitive touch and deals in this novel with buried childhood trauma

If you like Anna Maxted you might also like to read books by Nicholas Sparks, Alice Peterson and Cecelia Ahern.

Synopsis

Being Committed by Anna Maxted

Hannah thinks you have to be insane to get married. She's content with her life - the job as private investigator at Hound Dog Investigations, the boyfriend of five years, Jason, and the wonderful father (pity her mother is such a disaster). Besides, she's tried marriage once before, but she ended up divorced before she was 21. So, when the long-suffering Jason proposes, Hannah doesn't think twice about turning him down. Still, she is a little shaken when, a month later, the man has the nerve to get engaged to someone else. Is she not up to settling down? Hannah's family are convinced she blew her one chance of hooking a permanent man, and maybe - just maybe - there's something in Jason's theory that being committed means first coming to terms with your past.
