About the Book:
When Mary met Will Jordan online, she was a single mother who’d given up trying to find Mr Right. And yet here he suddenly was: articulate and attractive, with a fascinating background. Soon they were in love, and when he proposed after a month it seemed recklessly romantic. Caught up in a whirlwind, Mary accepted that Will’s work often took him away from home, out of contact. She was his rock, supporting him emotionally when a misunderstanding led to criminal charges, and even selling everything when blackmailers threatened to kidnap their children. Together, they took on the world. And then one day the phone rang, and a woman introduced herself as ‘the other Mrs Jordan’. In this raw account of deception on a grand scale, Mary Turner Thomson recounts what happened after she discovered every word he’d said, from the very first moment, was a lie. This is her painful, humiliating truth—but she tells it for one reason: she too was once a strong, independent woman who would have read all this and thought It could never happen to me.

Me, after the third chapter...
My heart went out to Mary and she was certainly brave to put herself out there and write a book about her experience. I think she was a little naive and gullible and maybe a little lonely. Will certainly took advantage of her vulnerability...and she was a sucker for it. I don't mean to put her down but seriously? I am not sure how someone AND their family could fall for this. When the money situation had become so bad she should have known right then and there he was too good to be true and to fall for it TWICE? Maybe she wanted to one knows what goes on in someone else's head.

With all that being was a well written account and such an interesting read. I understand that Mary has other books published and I look forward to enjoying those as well. Kudos to Mary for her strength and resilience to go forward and I wish her and her children all the best.

Thank you NetGalley, Mary Turner Thomson and Amazon Publishing UK for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
