Book Review: Getting Rid of Matthew

Getting Rid of Matthew Getting Rid of Matthew by Jane Fallon
Rating: 4 of 5 stars

So far, so good. This is a book about a woman who yearns for her lover's attention, outside of their scheduled evenings. Once Matthew finally leaves his wife for Helen, she's shocked to realize that she doesn't actually want him, after all.

Determined to learn more about the wife that she took him from, Helen befriends Sophie and heads into dangerous territory, trying to balance her career (where her new live-in, married older boyfriend works), her relationship with Matthew's teenage daughters and her new friend, Sophie, who is sharing intimate details about her marriage with the woman who stole her husband.

The book continues to add surprising twists and turns with each person Helen lies to. At the end of the story you'll feel sorry for her when she's caught in the middle of her boyfriend and his wife.

What happens next might surprise you.
