Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Laughter and tears, sparkle and insight, all the right ingredients for a warm, spirited, sexy read which becomes quite deliciously complicated as Bella, madly in love with Jonathan, decides to keep her first (university ten years ago) failed marriage a secret. Oh, silly girl. Things go from bad to worse and you’ve got to keep frantically turning those pages to the end. Such fun. This title is also available as an Audiobook, in either CD or cassette format.

Comparison: Anna Maxwell, Maria Beaumont, Maggie Alderson.
Similar this month: Carmen Reid, Hester Browne.

Synopsis

Husbands by Adele Parks

Bella secretly married her childhood sweetheart, Stevie, over a decade ago; they were at university, two big kids playing at being grownups. When it all unravelled and reality hit, Bella simply got up and left. And the secret remained a secret.

Years later, Bella meets Philip and, despite her vow never to marry again, she can’t resist him. He is a catch. Funny, charming, interesting and kind. Only hitch is, she’s still (technically, anyway) married to Stevie. Bella, typically, just ignores the problem. And the moment to tell Philip never quite seems to arrive.

So Bella plans never to reveal her secret – after all, it’s just a silly piece of paper, lodged at a registrar’s office in Aberdeen, isn’t it? She hasn’t seen Stevie for years – probably never will again. Except that Bella’s best friend Laura has fallen in love, and when she introduces her new man to the gang it is none other than Stevie. Could things get any more complicated? Only if Bella and Stevie fall in love with each other again…

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.

Susan Walsh

As for why I'd recommend Lovereading, it's simple - it's a great place to get information and reviews about new books!

Margaret Freeman

Lovereading tells me about new books before they hit the shelves, lets me find other authors I may like and has great prize draws!

Sheila Dale

Lovereading recommends, honestly reviews and promotes books-what more can I say?!

Rachel Bridgeman

A great place to go to find your next literary escape, and where you don't have to judge a book by its cover!

Suzanne Beney

I love reading because my cares & woes vanish for an hour or two whilst I read of the joys, adventures, lives of the characters in the book.

Jennifer Moville

With literary excellence, humour and drama, Lovereading's got value and is a real stress-calmer!

Siobhan McDowell

My favourite thing about is the 'like for like' page this has really introduced me to some good reads! That and lots of honest reviews.
