Review quote

"A pacy tale of two women who discover they've been simultaneously amrried to one man - at his funeral. Witty, ludicrously melodramatic and psychologically perceptive, and you'll polish it off between Luton and Heraklion." Sunday Telegraph "A smart, gripping story that we just couldn't stop reading - you won't believe the ending. *****" Closer Magazineshow more
