That she, the arbiter of taste, has made her living by cutting people down…and somehow she's got to make amends.

Part of a linked duo revolving around an IVF mix-up this is a powerful but also disturbing novel on a contentious subject. Although the romance element was good the medical issue became the focus of the plot and it evolved into a page turner as I couldn't wait to see how it would be resolved. The characters were well defined and likeable and the emotions which Olivia had to go through were excellently portrayed. Obviously the sympathies lay with Olivia who was devastated on finding out the baby she was carrying was not her husbands but personally mine were split right down the middle because as I felt the actual father had to have a great deal of consideration too. One downside was that while Olivia's first husband was freely mentioned there was never any comparison between her feelings for him and the hero. A thought provoking and topical novel. Ten out of ten
