Review - My Husband's Wife by Amanda Prowse

 Book review of 'My Husband's Wife'

 Buy the book here:

Once a week, Rosie Tipcott counts her blessings.
She goes to sit on her favourite bench on the north Devon cliffs, and thanks her lucky stars for her wonderful husband, her mischievous young daughters, and her neat little house by the sea. She vows to dedicate every waking hour to making her family happy.
But then her husband unexpectedly leaves her for another woman and takes the children. Now she must ask the question: what is left in her life? Can Rosie find the strength to rebuild herself? More importantly, does she even want to?

I'm a bit late on writing up this review as I read the book a while ago, but better late than never! The reason being that I then moved on to another of Amanda's books 'The Idea Of You,' and then totally forgot that I hadn't typed up and posted my notes for this one. I loved this book just as much however as 'The Idea of You,' so I'm pleased to be finally publishing this review!.

My review 

This book was certainly a page-turner that had me gripped until the very last page. I thoroughly enjoyed the novel and became immersed into Rosie's life, that my life was put on hold until I finished! The author is incredibly skilled at taking you on a journey of emotions as you follow the story of Rosie after her husband leaves her for another woman. Prowse is able to have you laughing one minute and reaching for the tissues the next. What an emotional book!

Rosie is such a beautiful character with an amazing heart. Prowse writes characters that are very relatable and realistic and this is what gives her such a special writing gift. I loved where the story is set in north Devon, a beautiful place that I have become familiar with which gave the story an extra interest. Fast paced and with a satisfying ending, I would recommend this story.
