The entire novel is narrated by Molly, which is what helps keep the suspense level high and I loved getting to know Molly via her innermost thoughts. The characters are all really well written, Molly in particular is so well written that I was feeling her nerves and angst along with her. When I first saw the cover of this book, I was really disappointed because it looked a bit bland, and after reading the book, I think it definitely deserves a much better cover than it has been given! The way she managed to insert a darker side to her books reminds me very much of Emily Barr and I fell in love. The author of The Other Lover, Dawson explores what happens when female friendship takes a turn for the worse, in this masterwork of edgy suspense in the popular. An Epilogue would have sufficed, just to round up the entire novel. Now available once again after being out of print for decades, and a complete. The One That Got Away is a great book, written in a way that flows so well and is so easy to read that you find yourself not being able to put it down.

Would you risk your future for a night with your past? As the book developed I began to dislike the main character more and more. Molly Greene loves being married. How far will he go to get Molly back for good? While teetering on the brink of the biggest decision she's ever faced, she sends an impulsive message to the very last person she ought to contact, someone who should have stayed forgotten, and is now coming looking for her. Het verhaal zelf is niet echt mijn ding zoals ik al eerder heb gezegd, maar toch heeft dit boek mij kunnen bekoren. But what makes the novel compelling is the story. Instead of waking him with accusations, Mia begins to look for answers. And the way in which everything happens in The One That Got Away could easily happen in real life.
One thing leads to another, and Molly wakes up the next morning with tremendous guilt on her shoulders and a persistant ex-boyfriend who refuses to back off. Everything Dawson says is very true. Lucy Dawson is new author to me, but her other books His Other Lover and What My Best Friend did are now firmly on my birthday list. Hiermee wil ik toch eventjes mee bedoelen dat het moeilijk te lezen is. When he finds her, there is no turning back. Exciting adventures lie ahead for her and husband Dan that will change their lives for ever, but Molly's not sure they're making the right choices.
I would still be interested in checking out this author's other books, though I'm a bit miffed with that cop-out ending, so it won't be in any great hurry! However, Dawson removes that protection, takes the characters out of the computer and then uses that same technology in an unusual and quite threatening way. Ik denk dat iedereen dat wel meemaakt en vooral omdat het zo goed beschreven is over wat ze precies meemaakt. Suddenly Molly finds herself with the very real possibility of losing everything in her life, and sets about trying to stop that happening. The couple struggle with the bills and hope to buy their own place. What woman wouldn't want to know everything, after all? What Dawson does best, though, is building suspense. I mean damn Leo needs some psychiatric help. Who hasn't hankered, if only momentarily, for 'what might have been'? Leo is utterly, utterly hate-able, one of the worst and most awful male characters I have read in a long time in chick lit but that is what makes the book so utterly compelling! I did not expect the twists and turns that the narrative takes.
I suppose my only problem with the book is the ending. They have a bit of a thing, swapping messages and texts, before meeting at a hotel where Molly is having a conference. And I love the open ending. Dawson brings social networking sites to the front of this book by making this the tool which starts everything off between Molly and Leo. Dawson seems to enjoy doing these edgy chick lit novels, not something you would usually expect in the genre but it really fits in well and seems to be popular too — after all, no one else seems to write books like these at the moment, and that is where I think Dawson has got her edge. He then unexpectedly starts turning up at places she visits and well, it all becomes a little frightening and out of control.

In the dead of night she discovers Peteher lover, her soul mate, her futureis having an affair. Just send us an and we'll put the best up on the site. I really wish there was a half star in the ratings - this is actually better than 3 stars, but I am reluctant to give it 4 as I don't feel it quite warrants that either. Further reading suggestion: You might like to try or. Stalker-ish is probably the right word.
