Booklist Review

Teri Carter is irritated when a man rushing to make his train knocks her down, but her annoyance turns to interest when Jamie Duncan insists on caring for her and seeing her home. Teri is smitten and Jamie certainly seems to return her affection, so why does he act so aloof and mysterious all of the time? Teri is heartbroken when she learns that Jamie is married, and Jamie is torn between his quickly cooling marriage to Pamela and the attraction he feels for Teri. There aren't any simple solutions here, and Matthews explores the common theme of marital unfaithfulness from every angle: the sympathetic Teri and Jamie; Jamie's wife, Pamela, struggling to hang on to her husband and raise their children; Teri's friend Clare, whose own husband was unfaithful; Jamie's happy-go-lucky friend, Charlie, who is much wiser than he seems. Matthews avoids simplistic and predictable solutions and in doing so makes her story fresh and enjoyable. --Kristine Huntley Copyright 2004 Booklist
