I want to make my husband fall back in love with me.
Let me explain. This isn’t an exercise in 1950’s wifeydom. I haven’t been reading articles in old women’s magazines. ‘Twenty ways to keep your man’ That couldn’t be further from the truth.
I want him to fall back in love with me so that when I tell him to get the hell out of my life he’ll care.
I want it to hurt.
Paula has had Robert’s back since they got together as drama students. She gave up her dreams so he could make it. Now he’s one of the nation’s most popular actors. And Paula’s just discovered he’s having an affair,
She’s going to remind Robert just what he’s sacrificing. And then she’s going to break his heart like he broke hers. It will be her greatest acting role ever.
Revenge is sweet. Isn’t it?
I hope you all agree with me this is a delicious looking front cover! The gorgeous looking cake looks so amazing ( something Mary Berry would produce!) The fork that is stabbed into the cake gives you the sense that it’s a bitter-sweet. I think this cover really suites the title of this novel.
I’ve read a few of Jane’s books in the past and really did enjoy them, they are unique story lines that have you gripped till the very last page.
My Sweet Revenge by Jane Fallon is a story about when a wife (Paula) finds out her soap star husband (Robert) is having an affair with suspicions that it’s his co-star (Saskia). Paula and Robert have a daughter who will soon be flying the nest to university, leaving just them at home and this brings things to the fore front of Paula’s mind. Paula want to hurt him as he has hurt her, so she plot’s her revenge to try to make him fall in love with her all over again and then finish with him when he least expects it.
In order for her to do this she has to try to sort her drabby housewife look and get into shape. With her suspicions pointing to Saskia, Paula tells Josh (Saskia’s husband) and with time they end up plotting together.
Will Paula’s plan work? Will Paula get to close to Josh? Will Saskia work it all out?
Jane Fallon is a truly wonderful and witty writing. She keep’s the reader intrigued and interested throughout the whole story. And the twist’s and turns were amazing making this book really unput-downable. Call me sad if you like but I also enjoyed getting a glimpse of soap land life!!!! I do love a tv soap!! Guilty as charged, but seriously this is a great read I highly recommend you grab yourself a copy, you won’t regret it!!!
