Summary: For five years, Sally and Clive have been lost in a passionate affair. Now he has dumped her to devote himself to his wife and family, and Sally is left in freefall.
It starts with a casual stroll past his house, and popping into the brasserie where his son works. Then Sally starts following Clive’s wife and daughter on Facebook. But that’s alright, isn’t it? These are perfectly normal things to do. Aren’t they?
Not since Fatal Attraction has the fallout from an illicit affair been exposed in such a sharp, darkly funny, and disturbing way: The Mistress’s Revenge is a truly exciting fiction debut. After all, who doesn’t know an otherwise sane woman who has gone a little crazy when her heart was broken?

This is a heartbreaking tale. I feel bad for the mistress because the cheater deserves nothing. It is like "I Wore the Ocean in the Shape of a Girl" in many ways they both have strong story lines but both drag as well. If you take your attention away for even a second it is almost impossible to get your attention back on the book. I feel as if this should be someones personal journal and I guess that is how it was written but. It doesn't have chapters so I dont strive to get from one to another. I can suck you in but you take your attention away and you could be lost from the book. This characters thoughts are never ending. She'll think about one thing not finish it and already be on another completely different topic. Errrr. Odd
