The complexity of a faithless marriage

What would you do if you suspected your husband of being unfaithful.  Cut up his clothes, change the locks or simply go home and make a wonderful dinner for your perfect family?

A book with many themes that will keep you hooked.

Unfaithful by Natalie Barelli is a book like no other.  Anna a professor of maths whose career is stalled, until she starts working with a promising young student, and between them they uncover the solution to maths problem that could change both of their lives.  But at the last-minute things change and then the student is dead. Looking for solace she visits her husband’s studio and uncovers another betrayal – he is unfaithful.  She doesn’t want to loose everything she has worked for professionally or personally and so begins her quest to be the best that she can be – despite the fact that her husband has a lover, and her student is no longer there to take credit for his work.  And she is falling apart – in so many ways. This book is magnificent in its complexity.  It kept me guessing and despite the fact that I knew I shouldn’t condone her behaviour, I was rooting for her.  Anna is a wonderfully complex and real character that does everything wrong, but despite this has right on her side, or does she. This is a book where plot shines supremely, but then so do the characters, all of which are relatable, and of course there are those that you can love to hate.

Summary and a sneek peek

“Thank you,” I say sweetly when she tells me I’m lucky to have such a beautiful family. But I want to tell her it’s not just luck. A family is like a fortress you have to defend all the time. You can’t relax because there’s always someone looking for a breach, always someone trying to get in. Someone just like her

The truth is, there are three people in my marriage, but only one of them is deadly…

An absolutely gripping psychological thriller with a twist that will knock you sideways, perfect for anyone left hungry for more after The Girl on the TrainThe Wife Between Us or The Other Wife. Author Bio:
Natalie Barelli can usually be found reading a book, and that book will more likely than not be a psychological thriller. When not absorbed in the latest gripping page-turner, Natalie loves cooking, enjoys riding her Vespa around town and otherwise spends far too much time at the computer. She lives in Australia, with her family. I would love to hear about your favourite psychological thrillers, which are one of my favourite genres. In these strange times, I have done more reading than going out, but I am so thankful for the joy of books. Kerry x p.s. thank you to Bookouture for the ARC


There was a huge part of me fighting against turning anything like fifty. It happens though and there is nothing we can do to fight it. Well we can’t fight the chronology of years and minutes ticking by but we can stay fabulous. I try to be fabulous, despite having a few things I am fighting against like RA, Diabetes and Pernicious Anaemia. This blog is simply about me embracing life. Food, make-up, fashion and more. My trials and tribulations. I hope you enjoy!
