This was my first book by Tamar Cohen and I very much enjoyed it I loved the style of writing it s sharp perceptive and witty and I really felt as though I were reading about real people I was hooked from the very start and it was a book that I couldn t put downSelina has been married to Simon for 28 years they have 3 children and an expensive lifestyle with money seemingly in abundance Lottie has been married to Simon for 17 years they have one child they live in a small flat are struggling for money but appear to be happy However when Simon is found dead in suspicious circumstances the worlds of the two families collide and they are left to deal with the conseuences To find out that you ve been deceived by your husband for nearly the whole of your married life after having his children supporting his career and building a life together can only be devastating We experience every emotion of both Selina and Lottie and that of their children including denial and anger There is also an element of danger running through the story Simon appeared to have some shady business partners who are seeking recompense and the two families are in the firing lineThe story is narrated in turn by each wife so you get to see both views All the characters are so well written you can t help but feel involved in their lives Of the two wives I preferred the character of Selina Although she appears to be a high maintenance wife and has a sometimes unpleasant superior attitude she shows herself to be of a coper whereas Lottie comes across as being rather scatterbrained and helpless who retreats rather than face up to lifeI wasn t sure about the epilogue this was a little too contrived for me but this doesn t detract from my overall enjoyment of the book and I m looking forward to reading The Mistress s Revenge which is also on my bookshelf

The War of the Wives

Nly just scratched the surface of Simon's incredible betrayal With dark humor and razor sharp wit Cohen expertly unravels a story of deception and betrayal where two very different families will discover they are entwined in ways that will change them all forever A cracking debut Fatal Attraction with a clever twist at the end Addictive The Bookseller on The Mistress's Reven. Though I initially thought the premise of the book was a bit far fetched I was uickly reeled in to the wives story lines As I read my allegiance switched back and forth between Selina and Lottie Both women were blinded by their faith and trust in their husband and suffered the most for his actions I was slightly thrown by the ending I didn t see it coming and it seemed a bit out of character with the rest of the story Overall it was a decent read

Oh my god this was the worst ending EVER 95% of this book gets 35 stars easy and then the end gets a NEGATIVE STAR for being horrible And I m so sorry that I can t give it a better score it s an interesting character study an examination of grief and shock and complex emotions surrounding a rather salacious and flashy fun story And then there s this crazy sudden nutso ending that cuts off in the middle of the important scene where All The Crazy Things are revealed and then there s this unlikely epilogue I m so bummed about having to give it a low score
