Best-selling children's book writer Angelica is amused and flattered at the attention of Jack, the owner of a vineyard in South Africa, whom she meets at a dinner party. With his easy charm and reputation as a ladies' man, Jack makes her feel good about herself - surely it can't do any harm to indulge in a mild email flirtation?

    " Beautifully written story of a woman searching for the meaning of happiness. She thought she had it as a wife and mother, only to see another path through a relationship with another man. Yet in the end, she came back to her family and saw her life and relationships with renewed perspective. "

    " I have such a hard time reading about people who play around with faithfulness. It was fun, shallow and I read it to the end. "

    " mindless cute read "

    " Hugely disappointing. Angelica is a writer, a wife and a mother, unhappy with her life. Although she loves her husband, she feels he flirts too much with other women (he does) and that he ignores her too much (he does, but he is a busy banker, who tries to make up for it whenever he can). She meets a man from S. Africa who is relentless in his email flirting with her, continually asking her to visit him. She has a chance to go to S. Africa for a book tour, so jumps at the chance to see him. She stays with him at his house - with his wife and child!?? He hints that his wife knows he is having an affair, and hints he has had other affairs, and that his wife just doesn't say anything to him about it, because she is not a "possessive" person. However, Angelica notices his wife looking sad and wistful much of the time. Angelica discovers that her lover is dying, and has been having affairs because that is what he wants to do before he dies! And his wife just puts up with it, because...you guessed it...he's dying! What total rubbish! Of course, Angelica is "different" than the others he has cheated on his wife with. She is "special". He "really loves" her. Easily the worst book I've read in years. "

    " enjoyable but forgettable "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Heather | 1/11/2014

    " Embarrassed to admit I read this, but I needed something totally mindless to end the summer! "

    " Also called The Affair, great book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue | 12/26/2013

    " Angelique, an authoress, feeling not appreciated by her husband,enters an affair with South African winery owner who meets her in England while visiting. The beginning of each chapter has quotes pertaining to happiness that has meaning to each chapter. Very good story. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Buffy | 12/17/2013

    " Read more like a fashion runway report. Although that stops when she gets to South Africa. Just kind of irritating to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jo at Jaffareadstoo | 9/25/2013

    " I was rather disappointed with this latest offering from one of my favourite authors. The book is finely written with attention to detail that is so characteristic of her books, however I didn't engage with the characters and skipped through to the ending. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Annabel | 8/7/2013

    " Als groot fan van Montefiore is dit een tegenvaller "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sue | 3/14/2013

    " I'm pleased I didn't abandon this book and kept going as it did get better but it was slow going and had little interest to keep me reading. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lynn Stenger | 12/9/2012

    " Not as good as her other stories...did not like the story line...better books out there...not to waste time on this one...to be honest...did not read past the fourth chapter. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Evelien | 12/1/2012

    " Absoluut niet het beste boek van toch wel een graaggelezen schrijfster. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lorelle | 9/29/2012

    " I enjoyed this book mainly because I identifed enough with the characters, that I laughed and cried along with them. If a book manages to capture my feelings in such a way, then for me, it was a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jane | 9/1/2012

    " I enjoyed this book but not as much as some of her others. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allie Smith | 5/20/2012

    " I really like this book. It's a touchy subject, but written in a way that I was sympathetic to all parties involved. Didn't always like "the girfriends", but the main characters were well develpoed...and the writing was beautiful. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gayle | 3/28/2012

    " Well if you like books about womens emotions when they are having and affair you might like this one. Not my favorite. "
