About this deal

The three main characters are so different but equally likeable, and I think lots of readers will relate to them in many ways. It was great to read a story about romance and friendship in women who were not in their 20s for a change. Jane is known as the revenge queen, but I really think the dialogue queen is more fitting, because the dialogue is truly masterful in this book.

She's planning to confess all to Ant, the man she's been happily dating for a few months, but then she finds out that he's in the midst of a much bigger indiscretion when she discovers messages from other women, ones he's communicating with at the same time as seeing her. There were some parts I appreciated, like when Joni forms a connection with the other women that Ant is seeing. The protagonist in this book is Joni, a mature woman that has been divorced and is very comfortable financially. Some characters’ decisions had me baffled but it just proved how gullible and naive some women can be. Het idee van dit verhaal is natuurlijk superleuk, maar voor mij kwam er eigenlijk geen enkele verrassing.I think I was waiting for a big twist, and whilst twists did come, they weren’t as shocking as I was expecting. Joni contacts the other women after going through Ant’s phone while he’s asleep and from there on in it gets even more hilarious to read.

Firstly because of the need to catfish, and then when the catfish becomes the conned, the need to keep sleeping with him to mine for more information.She can't confess her lie, but comes up with a plan to 'meet' Ant in real life without revealing their online connection. That made the first third of the book feel quite slow to me because it was essentially setting the scene of Joni’s life and her relationship with Ant. I loved the way the friendship blossomed between him and Joni but I understood the focus was on the friendship between the three wronged women.
