Freda has brought Joely to her dungeon-like house to tell her that her mother screwed her teacher and her brother is only her half brother because the teacher is her brother's father and her brother's father was FREDA'S BROTHER. Not only does everyone in the book let this dangerous behaviour slide, Freda is welcomed with open arms into the family and she and Marianne become BFFs.

I think she was given a little too much free reign that would never have been allowed when I was her age. Following periods of living in Los Angeles and the South of France, she currently lives in Gloucestershire with her husband, James, stepsons, Michael and Luke, and mischievous dogs, Coco and Lulu. Sir ( who is really David Martin and not David Michaels) left Marianne for Linda – his girlfriend travelling round India for three months – but Linda and Marianne are really the same person so how can that be?Joely has had her share of personal problems so when she gets a chance to take a job away from home, she jumps at it.

I always look forward to a Susan Lewis book, knowing full well to clear my diary as once you start, you won’t be able to put it down.

With each chapter, my curiosity increased until the reveal exploded the story and turned it upside down.A compelling, timely mystery’ bestselling author, Lisa Ballantyne ‘You'll be surprised and captivated right to the end! The challenging working relationship between Freda and Joely was tense and fascinating, as were the musical references and hints at long gone family relationships. I think most of the novel was intriguing and kept my attention, however there were a lot of unnecessary parts (or even just responses from characters) that felt a bit too implausible or unrealistic. The case here is obviously haebophilia and while it is still a disturbing thought to most, it is quite often an accepted practice in many cultures. A family drama full of unexpected twists, with a huge amount of optimism and warning that there are two sides to every story.

It is 1968 and the story of a 15 year old schoolgirl who embarks on an affair with her music teacher. After locking Joely in a tower to die and acting all menacing toward Marianne AND Holly, Freda is somehow forgiven as though she was just having a bit of a moment. I also felt increasingly uncomfortable with how the relationship between a 15 year old student and her 25 year old teacher was handled by the end. A Susan Lewis book is always going to be a great read, generally highly emotive with a river of suspense flowing through it. I loved the format of two timelines, switching back and forth between past and present, as the story unfolds.Ebooks fulfilled through Glose cannot be printed, downloaded as PDF, or read in other digital readers (like Kindle or Nook). In 1968 we meet a schoolgirl who falls for her music teacher, she persuades her mother to let her have piano lessons so that she can be alone with him. One of the things this author does really well is create complex situations which are incredibly realistic and very easy to feel involved in.

If you like books with a larger-than-life character and enjoy unraveling family intrigue and drama, then I suggest you consider My Lies, Your Lies.So on it goes like this until it turns out that the story Freda is telling isn't hers at all, but the story of another woman who had an affair with her teacher. One Minute Later is an absorbing look at a young woman's journey from health and good fortune to a life she never imagined. My second Susan Lewis read of the year and whilst there were large sections of the book that held my attention, on the whole it didn't quite hook me like Home Truths had done. I felt that there were several points at which the book could have ended and it would have been a brilliant read.
