Saving Grace: Review #6

Hello,

This post is a book review of Jane Green's 'Saving Grace'.





I honestly loved this book a lot, I'd never read anything before by Jane Green but the book seller in Waterstones recommended me it and who was I to say no to someone who thoroughly enjoyed this book and seemed very excited about it? Of course I am going to say yes if somebody feels very passionate about a certain book and this lady did not let me down! Saving grace is an amazing book I can see why the book seller was very excited by it! Grace's character is so likeable, she is someone who you'd like to be friends with and liking her is all so easy and throughout the book you see a lot of people turn on her and this makes you so angry, why would they want to turn on such a lovely person? This is how we get attached to characters in a book! Jane Green portrays each character with a lot of detail for you to decide whether you automatically like them or you do not like them. When Beth is first introduced to the book I didn't like her from the start, something seemed off with her and throughout the book we find out there is something wrong with her! Ted's character is someone who I truly despise, he is an awful husband and I for one could not stand the man, how did he get someone like Grace? What I honestly love about this book is how you have no idea how it's going to end or what will happen and how the story unfolds. Saving Grace has honestly been such an enjoyable book that it is making me so excited to read more Jane Green books, her writing is very beautiful and it just flows so well on the pages, I was instantly gripped from the very beginning. You must check out this book, it's amazing, just like Grace Chapman.
Thanks to the lovely book seller in waterstones for recommending me this, you rock!
Love, Beth.x


Summary:
"Grace and Ted Chapman are widely regarded as the perfect literary power couple. Ted is a successful novelist and Grace, his wife of twenty years, is beautiful, stylish, carefree, and a wonderful home-maker. But what no one sees, what is churning under the surface, is Ted’s rages. His mood swings. And the precarious house of cards that their lifestyle is built upon. When Ted’s longtime assistant and mainstay leaves, the house of cards begins to crumble and Grace, with dark secrets in her past, is most vulnerable. She finds herself in need of help but with no one to turn to…until the perfect new assistant shows up out of the blue.  To the rescue comes Beth, a competent young woman who can handle Ted and has the calm efficiency to weather the storms that threaten to engulf the Chapman household. Soon, though, it’s clear to Grace that Beth might be too good to be true. This new interloper might be the biggest threat of all, one that could cost Grace her marriage, her reputation, and even her sanity.  With everything at stake and no one to confide in, Grace must find a way to save herself before it is too late."
