About the Book:
On a normal day, in a normal house, on a normal street, wife and mother Fran has had enough. She packs a case, leaves a note for her bullying husband Pete, and one for her beloved twenty-year-old son Harry, and heads to the airport - and freedom. In another house, on another street, Helena is desperately baiting her husband Jack into a fight. These days it feels like the only way to get Jack to take notice of her. Passionate, volatile, increasingly fragile, Helena is fast running out of hope. What Helena and Fran don’t know, is that soon their lives are going to collide in ways neither expect nor understand. And if Fran and Helena are going to change their own futures, then first they will have to change each other’s.

My Review:
We were two random married people having a random coffee.
This is my first book by Amanda Brookfield and I went into this thinking it was a thriller. I don't know why... Maybe the title or cover? BUT in no way is this being touted as one, it was MY mistake and one I am glad I made as I really enjoyed this book. The writing was very enthralling, it had characters to hate and to root for and I loved the plot of two strong women coming head to head.

The story was suspenseful, realistic, tense and emotional and very well-written. I had a love-hate relationship with the two main characters. It’s a testament to the author that I’d have any sympathy at all for unsympathetic characters. I highly recommend this book and will be checking out others by this author.

Thank you NetGalley, Amanda Brookfield and Boldwood Books for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
