Book Review: Strictly Between Us by Jane Fallon

Tamsin and Michelle have been bestfriends for years, so when Tamsin hears rumours about Michelle’s husband, Patrick having an eye for the ladies and a reputation as a womaniser, she can’t help but launch an elaborate plan to find the truth. However, her well-structured scheme takes an unfathomable direction and Tess finds herself in a difficult dilemma.

This is my first book by this author and romance isn’t my go-to genre, but after the first thirty percent of the book I found it immensely gripping. It was hard not to predict a little of what was coming, but ultimately I was impressed with the way the story flowed and the characters were all alluring in their own way.

The first part of the book is told from Tamsin’s point of view, but the second .part, where we are given more revelations about other characters, is told from Tamsin’s assistant, Bea’s point of view too.

There is a morale to this story, and both Tamsin and Bea learn harsh lessons from the fall out of this messy but hugely entertaining story.

  1. I was asked to review this for my work bookclub but I turned it down as I have read a different book by Jane Fallon in the past and it was good but painfully slow. I have heard good things about this one and I still have a copy so I just might give it a read.

    1. Definitely. I think I ought to sandwich in more books like this between the psychological thrillers to give my mind respite from the hard going emotions of my usual reads. Not that this wasn’t touching in a more warm and affectionate way.

    1. Always my default position, but in the book our protagonist is torn between doing just that or telling her sister-like best friend about her husband’s infidelity. Not a new dilemma but certainly dealt with in a unique way in this book.
