Tightly written story of how infidelity can spill over into affe

Tightly written story of how infidelity can spill over into affecting far more than the intial two people involved. From the child borne from the affair, to wife of the man cheating, to the couple who adopted the child--nobody was is left unscathed.

While the idea of the story was good, it never picked up enough speed to be interesting. I found myself pushing through hoping something more interesting would happen. Tia was a pathetic excuse of a character to the point that I felt myself wanting to reach into the book and shake her. All in all, it could have been a great story if it wasn't so drawn out and boring.

    This story was a little luke warm

    I thought this story was ok and what I took away was this; all of us have things we've said or done that we're not proud of (and were never caught), so it doesn't make sense to hold onto unforgiveness with someone close to you (who was caught).

    The Comfort of Lies by Randy Susan Meyers discusses the adoption

    The Comfort of Lies by Randy Susan Meyers discusses the adoption from three different perspectives. That of the birth mother, the new parents of the Tia’s child, and the husband and wife where the husband had an affair.
    Synopsis:
    Tia reveals that she is pregnant to Nathan who was the love of her life. Nathan is not thrilled with the news and asks her to get to rid of it. Tia refuses but loses more than she thought. One day she decides that Nathan should be involved in their daughter’s life. What will happen when his wife intercepts the photos? Who will this affect? What will change in the new family, Tia, Nathan and his wife?
    My Thoughts:
    I am excited to share Susan Randy Meyers novel the Comfort of Lies. The affair abruptly ends but Tia is left spinning her wheels. I had a difficult time with Tia’s character. I agreed with her friends advice that she needed a change. Would you choose to make a change if it would kick start your life in a different direction? I still have questions about some of the other characters. What I am referring to is the motives of these characters.
    The setting of this story is Boston. I actually haven’t read too many stories set in this city. I found the setting interested! I loved how the writer seemed to capture the culture of different parts of the city. I loved how there seemed to be a different tone for each character. This novel is well written and very descriptive.
