Book Review: One Year After You

The Blurb

For forty years the fabulous Odette Devine has been a beloved matriarchal actress on Scotland’s longest-running TV show.

Today she is broken, betrayed, and desperate to find out if this is her payback for a lie she told forty years ago.

A year ago today, Tress Walker’s husband was killed in a car accident, on the same day she gave birth to their baby. Reeling from the discovery that he was with his mistress, Tress has to choose whether to protect her fragile heart or open it to love again.

Noah Clark was devastated to discover his wife and his best friend were having an affair. Now the love of his life is asking for another chance to make their marriage work. But can there ever be a way back, once the trust is broken?

Noah’s sister Keli Clark has recently been ghosted by the man she loves. When a shocking message from a complete stranger reveals the reason why, Keli will have to decide whether to forgive, forget, or to make sure he pays.

Twenty-four hours. Four shocking secrets. One tumultuous tale of love, loss and second chances.

My review


As those of you who follow me on social media will know, my husband and I became puppy raisers for Guide Dogs in October, and Pete the fox red labrador came to live with us, and turned our lives upside down.

I’ve barely read a word since he arrived, and have DNF’ed a whole pile of books. Sleep holds more appeal for me than stories right now. (Perhaps as an author I shouldn’t admit that, but it does!)

But this book kept me turning the pages! For this book, I’ve stayed up beyond my bedroom, and not worried about being woken up at 5 a.m. by our little fella wanting his breakfast!

This is the first book I’ve read by Shari Low and I’ll be seeking out all her others. This is definitely one to get your paws on!
