    Once again I am guilty for not reviewing a book as soon as I finished it It has been uite some time since I read Her Husband’s Mistake so I do apologize for having only brief and short reviewThe book is still kind of fresh in my mind when it comes to main points of the story but as I already stated it has been some time so I don’t feel comfortable writing a full in depth reviewThe story follows Roxy who one day finds her husband in their bed with their hot neighborHer husband wasn’t supportive of her when she took care of her ill father and now when he passed away Dave husband made this big mistake that is so hard to forgive and forgetI would say that the story talks about a woman who is torn apart between her husband’s infidelity and the two possible decisions it brings to forgive and try to work it out as a couple or to leave and move on while she canShe is also grieving her late father and the situation is not easy especially when people around her also have their opinionsI would also call this coming of age story because it talks about a woman finding her voice and her own strenghtI think every woman should read this novel because it talks about the capability of a woman to support herself even though that was not something she has done for her whole marriage life and also how sometimes husbands like for women to depend on themEven though it officially does not belong to that kind of genre I dare to say that this also talks about feminismThe writing style is amazing The book does not read uickly but it has so many beautiful sentences and thoughts that it is worth to spend time withIt is written in first person from Roxy’s POVSheila O’Flangan is well known author with many books written and this book reminded me how much I loved her novel Suddenly Single that I still remember today even though it has been years we talk here about cca 14 years since I read itI kind of regret now for not reading of her work but at least I know it is not too late to keep up with themI loved everything about this book and the only think that bothered me and it is personal pet peeve of mine is that the sentence “I released the breath I didn’t know I was holding” was in there three times and if you ask me even one is too many but I have to stress out that I read an ARC so maybe that was change in the finished copyAs I said it is my own personal pet peeve so please don’t take it seriouslyTo wrap up I want to recommend this book to readers especially women who enjoy reading general and women’s fiction and to those who love beautiful writing in their books Read this and reviews on my blog

    “The morning after my father’s funeral I came home and found my husband in bed with the next door neighbor” This was the first sentence in this book and it sure caught my attention and started my inner dialogue I have a strong opinion on infidelity like I think if a person cheats you should leave and never look back Now I do realize this is not everyone’s choice and I’ve had friends choose to stay and I’ve had to respect their choice but I will never truly understand it This book gave a real and raw look at Roxy and her choices in the aftermath of her husband‘s infidelity Things aren’t always black and white and this book made me see the gray in this situation a little clearerer This is my first book by Sheila O’Flanagan but it most certainly will not be my last Her writing style was so engaging and readable I was completely invested in the story and these characters The story was told with so much heart and humor Roxy was such a genuine character a character I truly cared about by the end of this book The chauffeur business was interesting and I really liked how she really took charge My favorite part of the book however was the bond between mother and daughter I loved how there for one another these ladies were Each of them was grieving their own loss and it just really brought home how important family is in our lives This just was a well told engrossing story that made me think laugh and even shed a tear A perfect summer read for those who love some substance with their fluff

    This was a lovely book to read very easy and enjoyable I’ve never read any of this author’s books before but I will in future and the good news is that she’s written loads so I can dip into them for awhile Plus she has a new one coming out soon so that’s even betterThe story was a little bit predictable but it is a chick lit and as far as I’m concern it was just what I needed a form of light escapism Wonderful

    The day after my father's funeral I caught my husband in bed with the neighbourI knew from the first line that this book was exactly what I was looking forI've read a couple of books by Sheila O'flannagan in the past and they are just so damm readable I cant say I loved the main character I couldnt particularly relate to her but at the same time I couldnt uite let her go either it's like I had to get to end and hope she turned into someone I could potentially like And having now reached the end I'm not sure i like her but im proud of her This is a perfect book for sunny poolside days or if like me you find yourself in the middle of War and Peace and just want to read something engaging and fluffy

    A husband’s infidelity breaks a woman but then slowly and surely it re joins her into a stronger version of herself a woman she is meant to beRoxy came back home on Rodeo Night and found her neighbor riding her husband Dave An irony A marriage which was solid with 2 kids broke apart She shifted out to her mum’s place took over her father’s chauffeur business for the sake of children and twenty years of marriage returned home to try to forgive a bad decision I tell ya her husband and make a go of her marriage But could a cracked mirror ever be as good as new?I have read many books by author Sheila O’Flanagan and have uite enjoyed them The premise of this had me eager to read it at one go Women empowerment women discovering themselves finding their inner strength and independence has always been one of my favorite reads in this genre And the book certainly did not disappointRoxy had been etched very carefully by the author There was an air of genuine goodness about her I loved the way the vibe of her inner discontent came through Her character grew from strength to strength Her decisions were supported by her kids and mum Only the archaic husband Dave was a moss covered boulder on her path slimy and slippery trying to control his wife I wanted Roxy to stand up strong and tall and she did My girl made me proudToo many unnecessary details and slow paced sections did niggle me and ask me to skim read But I did not I read the whole book from beginning to endA line from the book which touched meYou have to work at happiness it doesn’t simply land in your lapThis was so true Simple but poignant words taught me so much Overall a fun read

    3 ⭐⭐⭐ OK decent readsOur heroine in a painful moment of her life is cheated by her husbandThe story goes through all the stages of mourning in addition to mourning the loss of her father she loses her marriage and life as she knew itThe reader gradually learns about her life the aspirations and desires that are no longer the same as before the cheating She begins to take a different view of herself and her lifeIt's different and we get hooked to find out the directions she will choose for her and her children's livesI am a vengeful bitch and would not be so complacent with the cheater husband I would not have thought twice about kicking his ass out of the house But she takes her time and decides what's best for her in the endThe day after my father's funeral I caught my husband in bed with the neighbourI don’t think Dave is unhappy with himself In fact when I saw him with Julie he looked far too self satisfied for my liking No – he saw an opportunity and took it And he’s broken my heart‘Sweetheart I’m sorry’ he said ‘I didn’t mean this to happen’ ‘Which?’ I asked ‘You didn’t mean to shag someone else in our home or you didn’t mean me to find you at it in our bed?’‘You’re blaming me ?’ I stared at him ‘You slept with Julie Halpin and you’re blaming me ?’ ‘No You needed to be with your mum But I needed someone too These last few weeks have been tough’Forgive and forget Or walk away The pendulum keeps swinging between the two One of these days it’ll have to stop I still don’t know where‘Come home’ said Dave ‘I miss you and I miss the kids I wouldn’t have gone near Julie if I hadn’t been missing you’But why should I simply forgive him? He’s broken my heart after all‘Like Dave you mean?’ I ask ‘The good husband who slept with the neighbour? Or like Dad who used your money to pay off a woman he might have got pregnant?’‘I’m not going to encourage you to cheat on Dave’ Debs says ‘But what happens on the road stays on the road’‘Anyway Roxy can find something else to do’ says Dave ‘She was happy enough before’ I nearly say ‘Before what?’ but I don’t‘With men a lot of it is making sure they don’t feel neglected’ says Kerry‘He’s deflecting all the wrong he did by sleeping with that woman onto you and the car’ she says ‘The he can make you feel guilty about driving the less guilt he has to carry about cheating on you’With a sudden jolt I realise that I don’t care about fixing it I look at him without speaking I’ve loved him for most of my life I don’t love him any The next day Dave moves out He moves next doorDave is coming to the party I’ve no problem with that but I’ve told him that I don’t want Julie in the houseI wonder how it was he was able to move in with her so uickly

    I can always depend on Sheila O’Flanagan to deliver a book that will both entertain me and make me think I love that while her book’s are light reads they are not fluff I find they present issues to debate over in my mind as I’m always wondering just what I would do if I were in the characters shoesFirst LineThe morning after my father's funeral I came home and found my husband in bed with the next door neighbourMy ThoughtsWell that first line pretty much sums up the setting for the book Roxy catches her husband out and realises that something has to change in her life While she was once rebellious and competitive now she is just putting herself second place to everyone in her family And she realises that isn't good enough Not as an example to her children and not for herselfI loved watching her grow and re find herself I think every woman loses a bit of themselves as they take on grown up responsibilites and it made the theme a very relatable oneThere is a side story about Roxy's father who recently died Roxy finds out something about her father that she never knew and it feels like another blow to her Roxy's mother features heavily too and I enjoyed watching her step into a new chapter of her life With sadness and fear but also with a belief that life is for living I loved her courage and willingness to put herself out thereThis is a true family driven tale and family is at the heart of the book All the different stages of life and learning how to cope with set backs make tough decisions and rise to new challenges Told with humour and emotion I was engrossed and totally admit to ignoring everyone around me until I finished this book Overall it's a lovely read with engaging realistic characters coping with true life problems A typical Sheila O'Flanagan book and I mean that in the best possible way As seeing Sheila's name on the cover is like a guaranteed uality stamp to me

    Sheila O’Flanagan’s Her Husband’s Mistake has one of the most eye catching opening paragraphs I’ve seen for a while It very cleverly drew me right into the story from the startThis book was a look at what can happen and the choices that need to be made when your husband commits an act of infidelity that you are unfortunate enough to witness first hand purely by chanceIt was written in the first person and the reader was given a fascinating insight into what was going on in the mind of the protagonist throughout the storyI loved the character of Roxy and to my mind she was thoughtful caring and very astute Sheila O’Flanagan’s writing style helped to make this novel a joy to read and I liked how she managed to make the relatively mundane minutiae of life sound interesting The pacing of the story was absolutely perfect and although there were no huge surprises I wasn’t expecting any with this type of novelI thought I had read some of this author’s work before but none of her previous titles sounded familiar to me so I will definitely be reading some of them in the futureAll in all this was a beautifully told story that I highly recommendI received a complimentary digital copy of this novel at my own reuest from Headline via NetGalley This review is my own unbiased opinion

    All Roxy needed the day after her father’s funeral was to find her husband in bed with their next door neighbour when she got home She’d been the one to hold everything together throughout the months of her dad’s illness her mother and brother barely able to cope Roxy had sorted out the hospital visits so her dad wasn’t alone for too long dealt with the nurses and kept her dad’s chauffeur business running But this was a step too far She couldn’t cope with her husband of twenty years cheating on her It was a real wake up call for Roxy She hadn’t realised just how often she put everyone’s needs before her own Things had to change She and the children stayed at her mother’s where she’s been for the last few days to all intents and purposes keeping her company and offering support She couldn’t go home Inheriting her dad’s business is a life line for Roxy She finds working and interacting with the clients enjoyable and is excited at the thought of having her own business making her own moneyThis is a story about two women due to differing circumstances having to reevaluate dig deep and move forward with their lives Roxy and Dave were childhood sweethearts and twenty years and two children later their seemingly solid foundation was cracked Some cracks can be mended some can’t Roxy has a decision to make—forgive and forget or forge her own pathThe writing is engaging the characters realistic I enjoyed Roxy’s character and how we were privy to her thoughts and reasonings although it was a little long drawn out in places She’s realistic and once she realises what’s important in life and her own worth she finds the Roxy that got lost along the way together with her self esteem and confidence The story focusses on relationships—mother and daughter husband and wife parents and children Despite bouts of uncertainty Roxy worked through her situation at her own pace without being swayed by the opinion of others She and her mother had a lovely relationship and supported each other completely The mystery thread that runs through involving Roxy’s father gives the story another layerExcellent narration from Aoife McMahon as always

As you can see a Dubliner all my life My parents owned a grocery shop in the Iveagh Markets in the Liberties area of the city and I guess city blood runs through my veinsAs a child I enjoyed reading and telling stories and everyone thought that I end up in a job which had something to do with books and literature But though I applied for a job in the library all of the job offers I got were i
