What did I do yesterday? I read. The entire day, basically starting and finishing Rosie Walsh’s latest book The Love of My Life.

It was a great read with likable characters, including Leo and Emma’s adorable daughter Ruby. The characters felt real as did the situation. I liked that while I thought I figured things out, in the end, I really knew nothing at all.

I realize this review is short and doesn’t really say anything, but everything in the book helps with the suspense of it. I am afraid of spoiling things. I will leave off that it was a great read, and a fast one.


Emma loves her family and would do anything for them. But almost everything she told them about herself is a lie.

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.

The Love of My Life is from PGC Books and Pan MacMillan.
