The Comfort of Lies by Randy Susan Meyers

The Comfort of Lies by Randy Susan Meyers follows three women whose lives are unknowingly intertwined by a child. Tia is the mistress to a married man(Nathan) who becomes pregnant with his child. Juliette is the wife of Nathan whose life is turned upside down by the affair. Caroline is the hesitant adoptive mother to Tia and Nathan's child. Their lives intersect when Tia contacts Nathan five years later with pictures of the child, throwing all three women suddenly together.

This insomniac's opinion:

I found this novel to be compulsively readable and enjoyable. I was grateful to finally read a novel that doesn't gloss over the negative effects of infidelity and truly shows that infidelity is not a "victimless crime" especially when children are involved. I thought the three narrators all had distinct voices and were easy to relate to.

Worth staying up all night to read?

I did enjoy this book, but it isn't likely to make any of my must-read lists this year. If you enjoyed Randy Susan Meyers' former novel The Murderer's Daughters, you will like this one.

Rating: 3.5 stars (rounded up to four on Goodreads)
