About this deal

I enjoyed the side-plot that didn't villainize other women and went at things from a refreshing angle; though it did feel a little similar to McFarlane's last book, though in a quieter way.

Mhairi McFarlane is one of those authors that for me, is so consistent in terms of quality and beauty of story. Then she begins to realize that if is using things in her life in the show, he is probably using things from his life also and she starts to investigate along with a mutual friend and finds out much more. Even after they have broken up, we then go on to spend the last 20% of the book mostly on Roisin still playing detective and trying to catch him out, which did make her seem rather too obsessive. I doubt I'll ever find a reason to stop requesting (aka begging, which is what I did to get this early; and I waited, oh, four days before diving into it -- hello from March!Overall Rating: ❤️❤️❤️❤️Heat Rating:Emotional Rating: 🙄😒😬🙈😂🤬😬💔💓😂💓😒🤬👏🏻💓🥰😢💔😍🥰💓👏🏻💔💓🥰*Thanks to NetGalley for the opportunity to leave an honest review. The read is a bit more of a struggle and less easy reading and comedic than previous novels by the same author - and the ending quite quick - but it still worth a read if you like her novels and still better then many others I’ve read. That starts her wondering what kind of man Joe is and if she can see herself moving on from their relationship. The basic premise of the book is this: on a friends’ getaway, Roisin starts to suspect that her boyfriend’s new TV show picks closely from real life in some of its plot. McFarlane does have a formula or methodology she tends to follow: highly attractive female characters who have been deeply wronged and wounded by those they loved and trusted.

Main characters in McFarlane novels almost always go through an upheaval, generally personal where they end up leaving a longterm relationship and needing to kind of start over. The theme of gaslighting is central to this story, as it features a highly likeable heroine in Roisin, a competent secondary ed English teacher with devoted friends but a mercurial boyfriend.I was struggling to find time to read this one with my final college semester starting but after midterms this week I just read as much as I could.

Would have cut out some of the group vacation part and focused a bit more on the relationship developments (and not just the romantic relationships).
