First off, thank you NetGalley and Avon and Harper Voyager for granting me access to this book in exchange for an honest review. There's the core friend group, a classic staple in the author's arsenal; a longterm relationship going tits up, with a new love in the wings waiting to be discovered; and, of course, some messy familial dynamics to sink your teeth into. Ebooks fulfilled through Glose cannot be printed, downloaded as PDF, or read in other digital readers (like Kindle or Nook). Mhairi McFarlane is one of those authors that for me, is so consistent in terms of quality and beauty of story. Over the past year, Roisin has felt Joe pulling away from her and their relationship, but the breaking point comes when she realizes he’s used her painful secrets as a plot line in his show.

The provocative opening takes a dark turn when Lily receives a warning about Ryle’s intentions from his sister, who becomes Lily’s employee and close friend. The question of Roisin's attraction to someone so selfish and heartless is certainly raised more than once, but I'm not sure this book has answers, and I think maybe it needed some. I really liked Roisin right from the start, though I'm glad I looked up the pronunciation of her name early so all the nicknames made sense. In this book, you have to be patient for Roisin to get an idea of the kind of partner she deserves, after Joe uses her and her quiet investigations uncover his betrayal in so many more ways. Even after they have broken up, we then go on to spend the last 20% of the book mostly on Roisin still playing detective and trying to catch him out.The thing I've come to find about McFarlane's novels is that they are all character driven, and this trait shines through again with Roisin and the gang. And even then, things don't get resolved until the 77 percent mark, and even then we get a twist/reveal at the 84 percent mark. The leading guy of the story is a liar and cheater, and even the supporting characters are carbon copies of their common friends.

Our heroine, surrounded, supported by, and supportive of a group of close and quirky friends, dumps or is dumped by a guy that is clearly not worthy of her after their long-standing relationship goes to pot. Romance is never a huge part of McFarlane’s books – there’s a clear thread that runs through it but it’s never the primary part of the story. I’m talking as if I’m more influential than I am probably because 3am reviewwww and I think I’m funnier than I am.And as they watch the first episode of Joe’s drama, she realizes that the private things she told him–which should have stayed between them–are right there on the screen. it’s mostly a character journey, and takes an introspective look into the truly disorienting thoughts that can creep it’s way into your brain when you’re trapped in dysfunctional relationships. I guess that this does chime with the repeated refrain 'slow but then fast at the end' which pretty much sums up this book! I did appreciate the side plot around Roisin and her complicated relationship with her mother, and enjoyed their dynamics. The only thing that bugged me was that most of the book revolves around the unhealthy relationship of the heroine, who finds herself deceived by the illusion of their love life, leaving little time for her second chance romance.

Die humorvollen Momente lockern die Handlung auf und bringen den Leser zum Schmunzeln, ohne dabei die emotionale Intensität der Liebesgeschichte zu beeinträchtigen.

In between, Lily and Atlas steal away for romantic moments that are even sweeter for their authenticity as Lily struggles with child care, breastfeeding, and running a business while trying to find time for herself. As the group head out on a celebratory weekend away; tensions soar and relationships halt as incidents give cause to create a rift between them. Also, the humor was much more understated and banter is one of my favorite things about this author's work.
