Read The Husband’s Secret by this author first and enjoyed the author’s style and humor so much, I am working my way backwards with her previously published novels. I enjoyed this very much as well. It makes one reflect on what they would do in a similar situation and I thought the overall story was different. Being a little picky on the narration, I am thinking that the narrator didn’t change her voice enough for the different characters, but overall her voice was cute and pleasant.
