Description

A husband. A wife. A mistress. And the ultimate plan for revenge....

James never intended to lead a double life; with a wife in London and a mistress in the country, it's exhausting. But that's all about to change....

Stephanie, his wife, isn't really snooping when she finds a text message from a strange woman on her husband's mobile. But now she's found it, how can she ignore it? It's time to track the woman down and find out what's going on....

Katie has no reason to believe her boyfriend, James, is cheating on her until someone claiming to be his wife gets in touch. Now she's been cast in the role of mistress. Not one she's happy with....

Once Stephanie and Katie know about each other, they must decide what to do. They could both just throw him out or they could join forces to make his life hell first; but revenge isn't always sweet. And what happens when one woman thinks enough is enough but the other doesn't know when to stop?

A Monster fueled by Schadenfreude

This was another good Jane Fallon story with her usual elements of friendship, fidelity, rightful retaliation, schadenfreude (pleasure from the misfortune of another) and without being cheesy. This story closely parallels the 2014 romantic/comedy, “The Other Woman” with Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann and Kate Upton – where the mistress and wife collude against the husband (except in the movie, there is a second mistress). In this book, a man leads a double life for over a year, splitting his time in the city and the country as a veterinarian in two different clinics. His “real” life is in the city with his wife and son and his other life is with his mistress in the country. The two women get into contact after one learns about the deception and instead of taking out their fury on each other, they plot against the husband. They devise the ultimate plan to disgrace and oust him at his 40th birthday party, but as it is months away, they make his life miserable in the meantime. However, one of them starts to take it too far and the other must decide whether to put a halt to everything or continue with the plan he deserves. The ending is satisfying and the narrator was particularly excellent with a range of realistic voices from a young and old woman to a little boy.

Great narrator!

One of the best narrators I’ve heard. I’ll be looking for more of her books. It was a fun listen.

Pretty good chic lit

I enjoyed this book right up to the last few chapters. It had a weak ending in my opinion. Good narration. Little boy character was a brat - not sure if author meant it to be that way. What 7 year old gets away with calling his mother stupid repeatedly??!

Waste of time

I was really disappointed when the 2 women decided to back out of their revenge because they took pity upon the husband which defeated the whole purpose of the plot.

Interesting but nothing Surprising

While I enjoyed the storyline a d performance it felt as if it would go on forever. There were no surprises. Very predictable. The narrator was perfect for this type of story.

Her books all have the same plot

I loved the first book I read of hers, “Faking Friend.” So I picked this one next. But then I realized that every single book she writes is about cheating husbands/boyfriends and their wives/girlfriends getting revenge on them without them knowing they’re doing it.. Her characters are great, but she seriously needs another plot line. If you like reading multiple books on getting revenge on cheating significant others then by all means read all of hers but I’m moving on.

Hatte schon bessere Bücher der Autorin

Mir gefiel dieses Buch weniger gut als alle anderen bisher von der Autorin gelesenen. Es war nicht schlecht, aber etwas weniger abwechslungsreich. Hinzu kam, dass die Geschichte reichlich trist war, das ganze Thema Betrug und gemainsame Rache der beiden Betrogenen ist ja nicht erbaulich, zumindest für mich nicht. Sagen wir mal, das ist kein Liebesroman.
Positiv fand ich:....mh, ansich schlüssig geschrieben (man staunt ja, wenn man Unterhaltungslitertur liest, wie wenig das vorausgesetzt werden kann), Hauptpersonen halbwegs sympathisch, Gedanken nachvollziehbar und ausreichend ausführlich beschrieben.
