A tale of temptation and its power to challenge a strong marriage.
Just when Harry had it all with his lovely wife, family, career and opportunities…along comes Claire. Initially a friend of the family, the friendship between Claire and Henry becomes so much more. And, the result is at the crux of this story from first-time author, Charles Dubow.
This book surprised me and I really enjoyed the suspenseful nature. What I thought was going to be a steamy romance based on the initial description turned into a story that really challenges what is important in life.
