The Mistake I Made

imageI read this third offering from Paula Daly as part of a buddy read.
Like her previous two novels it is set in the stunning Lake District and also like them, it was impossible to put down.
Roz is a physiotherapist who is very financially strapped. She comes to ‘an agreement’ with a local wealthy businessman in the hope that her situation can improve immediately but it doesn’t work out that way. You really had to feel for her, her ex husband was a waste of space, her son was in trouble at school and her boss was a lot closer than she liked. And things were only going to get worse.
I thought Roz was a brilliant character. Very believable, in fact all the characters were. Everybody must know somebody like Celia. The same police officer who featured in previous books also features here but very much in the back seat. All the focus is on Roz and the predicament that she ends up in.
I laughed, cringed and had a tear in my eye at times with this book and cannot recommend highly enough.
