Listened to the audiobook. I liked the setting and characters, but felt it kept building up to something that never happened. Maybe that was the point. I thought it had finished when what turned out to be part one ended and in a way it might as well have. Oddly for this genre and a female writer I didn‘t like the attitude to women and adultery, always seemed to be the woman to blame.
