Review: "Tempting Fate" by Jane Green
Jane Green has done it again! Tempting Fate had me frantically turning the pages to find out what would happen next. At one point I even e-mailed a friend of mine who had read the book before me, incredulous about a plot twist that has just happened!
Despite the fact that I don't exactly gravitate towards books about infidelity, given the fact that I am so firmly against it, I thought that Jane Green handled this sensitive topic in a way that was respectful to all of the emotions and people involved. I felt that the reactions of the various characters involved in the story were realistic and likely accurate given the situation, and I appreciated that. I could sympathise with all of the characters, regardless of how much or how little they were involved in the main plot.
The one criticism I could offer for Tempting Fate is how neatly the ending wrapped up. Endings that are too picture perfect are my personal pet peeve, and I did feel that this one, despite it being satisfying on one level, was too abrupt and a little too perfect on another. This still did not lessen my enjoyment of the book!
Well-written with a thoroughly engaging plot, Tempting Fate is yet another must read from the pen of Jane Green. If this is your first Jane Green book or if it's your fourteenth, it will not disappoint!
