Her Husband’s Mistake by Sheila O’Flanagan
Today I am taking part in the blog tour for Her Husband’s Mistake by Sheila O’Flanagan.
Thank you to Anne Cater from Random Things Tours for the tour invite and copy of the book, which I have reviewed honestly.
Here is a list of other book bloggers taking part in the tour. Why not call in to see what they thought of this brand new novel?
Dave’s made a BIG mistake. What’s Roxy going to do about it? The riveting new novel from No. 1 bestselling author Sheila O’Flanagan. Perfect for readers of Marian Keyes and Amanda Prowse.
Roxy’s marriage has always been rock solid.
After twenty years, and with two carefree kids, she and Dave are still the perfect couple.
Until the day she comes home unexpectedly, and finds Dave in bed with their attractive, single neighbour.
Suddenly Roxy isn’t sure about anything – her past, the business she’s taken over from her dad, or what her family’s future might be. She’s spent so long caring about everyone else that she’s forgotten what she actually wants. But something has changed. And Roxy has a decision to make.
Whether it’s with Dave, or without him, it’s time for Roxy to start living for herself…
‘One of my favourite authors’ Marian Keyes
Roxy has such a dilemma. Her perfect husband and perfect father to her children makes one mistake. However, this isn’t forgetting to put the bins out or to pick up the dry cleaning. No, this is one mahoosive, jaw-droppingly stupid mistake which could wreck the whole family.
On top of that, Roxy’s father recently passed away and she is trying to continue her dad’s chauffering business. Her mother and children need Roxy to be strong but she has no idea what to do after her husband’s infidelity turned their lives upside down.
I really liked Roxy and loved how the author incorporated the lives of her high flying clients into the plot giving a different aspect to the storyline. I couldn’t take to Dave, Roxy’s husband, and was frustrated that she showed such undeserved loyalty towards him.
The story is so relatable. There must be hundreds of Roxy’s out there, stumbling through a dense fog, not knowing if she is heading in the right direction, just hoping that one-day things will become clear. She finds comfort in her mother’s company, her children, her dad’s car and her childhood home, all of which help her heal. A different Roxy emerges, but what choices will she make?
The writing is completely seamless and totally enjoyable. If you want a relaxed, family-focused book with real people facing real problems, this is the one for you.
