I first reviewed The Love of My Life by Rosie Walsh when it was released last March in hardcover. It was one of those books that reeled me in and refused to let go, keeping me eagerly flipping pages through a multitude of twists and turns until I finally finished it late into the wee hours of the night. The book has now been published in paperback so it seemed a good time to revisit my original review as well as offer a print giveaway, courtesy of the publisher. More on that at the end of the post.
And she might just have got away with it, if it weren’t for her husband’s job. Leo is an obituary writer; Emma a well-known marine biologist. When she suffers a serious illness, Leo copes by doing what he knows best – researching and writing about his wife’s life. But as he starts to unravel the truth, he discovers the woman he loves doesn’t really exist. Even her name isn’t real.
When the very darkest moments of Emma’s past finally emerge, she must somehow prove to Leo that she really is the woman he always thought she was . . .
But first, she must tell him about the other love of her life.
