The Faithfuls – Book Review

Hey all! I am back with a book review–The Faithfuls by Cecelia Lyra. This is the second book I have read from this author, the first The Sunset Sisters (which I have written a book review on this blog) . This is the second book of the Sisterhood Series, though this book has no connection with the first book.

The Faithfuls: An emotional page-turner with a heart-stopping twist (The Sisterhood Series) by [Cecilia Lyra]

A summer house in the Hamptons doesn’t always buy happiness, as one woman is about to find out…

For fifteen glorious years, Gina Dewar has been married to her college sweetheart Bobby. Years in which she has lived in the small company town of Alma, New York, lovingly raised their son Calan, been secretary of the Alma Social Club, and tried not to think too often of the family she said goodbye to when she became a Dewar.

But then Bobby is publicly accused of having an affair, and Gina’s life changes overnight, overwhelmed with scandal, speculation and the agony of uncertainty.

Gina’s sister-in-law Alice is her polar opposite, she has never appreciated the traditional values of Alma, or tried to fit in with its quaint neighborliness. But in these devastating circumstances, could she be the one person who can help Gina piece her life back together?

After Gina makes the decision to trust Bobby, who has claimed his innocence all along, she hopes her family can move forward. But then she hears the rumor that his supposed mistress is pregnant and she is shaken to the core. With Alice’s unexpected support, Gina must face up to the secrets within her marriage, and do whatever she can to protect the people she loves…

Thank You Netgalley and Bookouture for this book. This review is completely based on my honest opinion.

This is the second book, I have read from this author, Cecelia Lyra, the first book, The Sunset Sisters. This is also the second book of the Sisterhood Series, though this book has no connection with the first book whatsoever.

Gina Dewar is happily married for fifteen years to Bobby Dewar, who is the CEO of the family run business, Alma Boots. But then soon a scandal, involving a woman named Eva Stone who accuses Bobby Dewar of sexual advances soon tests their marriage and threatens their marriage. The story is an emotional roller coaster ride of how Gina is dealing with the situation–she trusts her husband and is ready to forgive him but at the same time has mixed feelings about it.

Just like in her previous books, the writing was flowing and was intriguing with each chapter some sort of unexpected twist you will never expect. The story itself sounds realistic as well and I like how the author has made the story as realistic as possible. The emotions and feelings that each of the characters are feeling is also realistic. The ending to me was really good. But for me, I feel this book is a bit better than her first book.

Overall, this is an emotional family drama, worth reading and worth five stars in my opinion!
