Evidence of the Affair Reviews
10/10 do recommend reading this in the tub with a glass of wine and Fleetwood Mac playing softly in the background. SO DAMN GOOD.
I read one book at a time and routinely read at the gym on the treadmill and bike, but the book I’m reading is a hard copy and I can’t hold it as comfortably as my kindle. I had downloaded this short story/novella for free from Amazon thanks to my Goodreads friend Melisa so my dilemma was solved . I read this and can get back to my book . About this story - wow!

3.5 review soon.

This was a cute little novella, which told the story of two people who found out their spouses were having an affair with each other, creating a friendship between them.

Go pick it up...
i literally read this right after getting out of the shower while doing a face mask and eating grapes and let me tell you, it truly was a cathartic experience
this short story proves, most importantly, a theory i've had for a long time now: don't trust men who don't appreciate david bowie. (generally 'don't trust men' but bitch i been knew.)
it's truly so inspiring how much taylor jenkin reid just despises most male human beings, i relate to that shit on a deeply personal level
