Effie has a whirl wind romance with the dashing barrister Oliver after Smith ,lets her down badly. There are no surprises in this story and you wonder how anyone can be so gullible. I love the way it has been written, how Effie finally works out what she wants from life. Natalie covers domestic violence very well, not just physical but mental abuse too. It's true, you don't really know someone properly until you live with them! Congratulations Ms Martin on writing another great book and I hope you are working on your third!
