The Pilot's Wife
A plane crashes, killing everyone, and the pilot's wife and her daughter have to struggle with the emotional pressure of not knowing what happened. But as evidence comes to light, it seems the pilot was not so innocent, and in fact was leading a secret life in London...
OK I suppose, easy read. Plot a bit daft in places, and having him involved in helping to ship stuff for the IRA stretched my credulity a tad. C**** provided this book and she moaned about it, so I'm tempted to give it a slightly higher mark than it deserves actually.

Fortune's Rocks
Olympia, a 15 year old girl goes with her family to stay at Fortune's Rocks, where she meets a married man, a doctor, who has kids. They fall in love, and get discovered in bed by the wife, and life changes somewhat for everyone involved.
Well, it was quite good I suppose, but it all seemed a bit artificial somehow. Better than the Pilot's Wife, the other book of hers that I have read.
