What I'm Reading
A quick beach read about a journalist torn between two men.
The story opens with a female journalist in hospital with memory loss. She cannot remember anything about the accident or the unborn baby she has lost. She asks her husband to fill in the blanks - but maybe tomorrow, maybe tomorrow. Maybe this is the suspense element. When she is sufficiently recovered she has an interview gig with someone she has interviewed before, but cannot remember. Curiouser and curiouser.
Until it becomes obvious that both men are perfect specimens of masculinity, with perfect teeth and 'ice blue eyes', and, basically, irresistible. The married journalist commits adultery and at this point the outcome of the whole story becomes obvious. So early on, too. She is 'in love' with two men. It's a love that shows no affection other than 'cupping his jaw' or cheek and sexual attraction.
The concept of memory loss is not as big a theme as first indicated and the story would have benefited from some development here. Although the protagonist has meetings with a psychologist this is not a psychological thriller, and the things not said represent the apparent deceit. An easy read about wealthy attractive people who wear designer shoes, set in a beautiful landscape, and so on. If romance is is your thing, this book is something to read on your next holiday.
