Good debut, could have taken out 20-30 pages w/out impacting the story ( )

Good writing, a little too melodramatic, could have shaved off a good 50-75 pages. Didn't really care for any of the characters, could have described the locations better. ( )

It is rare that a book can keep you so distanced from the characters while allowing you to become so entangled in their lives, but that is what happens with Indiscretion, and it works perfectly. It's hard to say too much about the plot without giving anything away - the blurb is fairly vague, and I think it is best to start reading without knowing what exactly will happen in the story. Although I might warn that the summary makes the book sound bland in comparison to how lively it really is - the drama draws you in and you don't realize how involved you are until the ending sends your heart soaring and then squeezes.

This was a great read. The picture pefect family is put through the test of lies and betrayal. The story as told through the voice of Maddy's childhood friend, Walter, godfather to her son, sets an intimate story of family, friendship, love and betrayal, devotion and survival of a broken marriage. Is it possible to have a happy ever after ending? Character development was superb. The perfect couple with the perfect marriage that was jeopardized for lust and selfishness. ( )
