My review

Soon as The Perfect Affair landed on my door mat I could not wait to start reading it. I picked the paperback up straight away and started to read it and found it very hard to put the novel down.The Perfect Affair centres around three main characters and their families. Claire has a real gift to make all the characters like real people that we would know. Rose split her house into two flats. She lived in the upstairs flat and rented the downstairs flat to a crime writer Myles so he could write in peace and quite away from his family. Rose has secrets from her past that are lodged deep in her heart but Rose does not tell Eve all her secrets. Eve is married and visits her Rose a lot when she falls in love with Myles at the very sight of him. Eve and Myles who are both married find themselves pulling towards each other and start having an affair. The story is very convincing that holds heartbreak and loss. The perfect Affair is like most of affairs rife with the spice of danger that all women will want to read.
