The Ever After by Sarah Pekkanen. (2018).

**2.5 out of 5 stars**

Josie and Frank have been together for over 16 years. They have two young daughters. Sometimes life is monotonous but Frank is a great father and husband. Until one day Josie uses his phone and sees an email that shatters her world. Now Josie is standing on an edge, looking at their history and contemplating their future while trying to work out the extent of her husband’s secret.

I wasn’t really a fan of this book. I liked the idea of the storyline in that I imagine infidelity would be something really difficult to deal with particularly in a long term relationship but honestly, this book was just boring to me. However, the confusion of Josie about how to deal with this and also re looking at their history did seem realistic. On the other hand, in the edition I read there were clear typos and names that were obviously mixed up (like using the mother’s name instead of the daughter when it was clearly the daughter being referred to); this didn’t help with trying to get into the story. At the end of the day I felt really blah about the book after I finished it. The reviews are quite mixed on it on Goodreads so it’s always worth a go to see if you would enjoy it.
