The Mistress's Revenge by Tamar Cohen

The Mistress's Revenge: A NovelAccording to Msnbc's survey 1 in 5 adults have cheated on the person they are currently with.
Atleast 28% of the married men and 18% of married women(The survey was taken by 70,000 adult online).Author M.Gary Neuman,author of "The Truth About Cheating:Why Men stray and What You Can Do About It", comprised a 2 year study that followed  a 100 faithful men and 100 unfaithful men the results may surprise you : only 8% of the cheating men said that sexual dissatisfaction was the reason and 48% said it was emotional  disconnect..   So what if the other woman after being dumped would not go away quietly
what if she was determined to bring the affair to light no  matter  how much she stood to lose in the process?  Enter Sally Islip the former mistress of clive Gooding a well known philandering music producer , who has just ended their 5 year  affair without much of an explanation to Sally.   Even though she is in a long term relationship with someone else and has two kids from the union, she doesn't feel like she had much to live for
and has determined in her now fragile and demented mind that she will get even.
My overall impression:  I found the author's style funny, engrossing  and entertaining .   I actually liked Sally's
thearpist,Helen Bunion  because she didn't let Sally  use her advice to justify her little plot to get back at Clive.
It was actually interesting to see Sally slide into her mental decline bu I can't say I was sympathtic, which I am sure was the way it was intended to be taken.   If you don read any other book this summer read this one! I am definitely giving it 5 out of 5 stars.  I would also like to thank Free Press  for allowing me the chance to review the book but I don't get paid to do so.
