 I am delighted to be part of The Idea of Him Blog Tour

Harper Collins

Captivating and seductive, told in the whip-smart voice of a woman who is working hard to keep her parenting and career on track, The Idea of Him is a novel of conspiracy, intrigue, and intense passion – and discovering your greatest strength through your deepest fears.

My thoughts on the book....

Allie Crawford seemingly has the perfect life; a husband she adores, two wonderful children and a high profile job with a Manhattan PR company. Life should be good but it all comes to an abrupt halt when Allie discovers her husband in a scandalous situation which then turns her world completely upside down. Forced to re-evaluate her life, Allie has some tough decisions ahead, not just about her relationship with her husband but also about the direction of her life.

The book is an interesting look at the light and shade of contemporary relationships when the balance of power within that relationship is unequal. Allie is a mixture of contradictions, determined and feisty on one level and yet is also completely naive about what she wants from life. Much of the time I didn’t really warm to Allie’s character very much, but I could understand the dilemma she was faced with her and her determination to look after her children was commendable.

I found it to be a quick read, fast paced and intriguing with a hint of glamour.

My thanks to the author for sharing her work with me and Jaime Frost at Harper Collins for inviting me to be part of this blog tour.
