    To tell or not to tell

    I was really looking forward to reading this as I have read all of this authors books, the premise sounded good, the writing is as usual great. But I struggled with the story, I just couldn’t find it believable enough, which I hate to say. Others may love this. But this couple were so in love which was relatable and believable, they were a strong family unit despite the dad Adam not always being there at the beginning for his son Josh, but he had been young when him and Livia had found out they were pregnant. Livia had been planning her 40th birthday for years, she had been saving money, and it was to make up for the big wedding day she never had, her parents had shunned her for around 20 years because she had found herself pregnant and not married. This was to be the party of all parties, but she had a secret she was keeping from Adam, but what was it? Why was she waiting until after the party? Why did she feel this would be the last time they would be so happy, because she felt once Adam knew it would change their relationship? Then Adam who was arranging a big surprise for Livia, also has a secret, although he isn’t certain until after the party, whether what he thinks is true, he just keeps hoping it isn’t. Adam just wants Livia to enjoy this day she has looked forward to and planned for years, so he doesn’t tell her something he knows will devastate her. I couldn’t have done what Adam does, it’s hard to fathom how anyone could, that was the bit that got me, and as I was reading it I was getting more and more annoyed with this solid couple, who were keeping secrets from each other. I am sorry but that just didn’t work for me, other Dilemma’s maybe, but Adam’s mainly was the one I struggled with. I did obviously have to keep reading to the end, to see if there was going to be some kind of twist, I kept hoping there was going to be a twist, but it just didn’t happen. I would like to thank #netgalley and #HQ for an eARC of this book in exchange for an honest, fair and unbiased review.

    A worthy break from my usual genre

    The synopsys grabbed me enough to divert from non-fiction. And the book pages almost turned themselves. A clever page turner.

    Emotional

    It’s the day of Livia’s much anticipated 40th birthday party but amongst the excitement of the day is a fear of what she has to tell her husband Adam about their daughter Marnie after the party. Meanwhile Adam has a secret of his own about Marnie, it was supposed to be a happy surprise but it’s turned into a nightmare that tears him apart your by hour. This is an absolute roller coaster of emotions, and is very perceptively told from both Liv and Adam’s viewpoints and to say it’s set in a period of around 24 hours it is very pacy and keeps you drawn in, you want to know the secrets then you want to support them while they battle with them and then the fallout is heartbreaking. What a fantastic read this was, I devoured it in no time and enjoyed every page.

    A Masterpiece!

    B. A. Paris writes a hugely engrossing and entertaining novel of romantic suspense, awash with harboured secrets. Although, The Dilemma is a little different to B.A. Paris' previous novels, in that it's more of a family drama than a psychological thriller, it had a pleasing synopsis, so I jumped at the chance to read it and there were no disappointments here! Livia is married to Adam and she is rapidly approaching forty. Her birthday is actually very soon and she has organised the best party ever. But Livia and Adam both have secrets that they have been keeping from one another. Told from the perspectives of Livia and Adam, leading up to and on the night of the party, The Dilemma isn't the read I had been expecting. Although I had been anticipating something pretty good, it was first-class! Livia and Adam are both wholly unpersonable, but that made for a more interesting and addictive read. B. A. Paris delivers this unrestrained story with a delightful cocktail of miscommunication, indecisiveness, duplicity, rights and wrongs, and little white lies. The Dilemma is beautifully plotted, a cracking story and a book I revelled in all the way through. The author did a brilliant job of drawing me into the plot, capturing and commanding my attention with her superbly drawn characters, while adding in clever twists. Nearing the point of the final revelation, I thought I knew what was going to happen, but I didn't. Along with its well-executed, satisfying and fulfilling finale, The Dilemma is sure to please both fans of B. A. Paris' previous novels, as well as those discovering her for the first time. A riveting, stellar and exemplary novel that I'm delighted to recommend. I received a complimentary copy of this novel, at my request, from HQ via NetGalley, and this review is my own unbiased opinion.
