Publisher's Summary

Paul manages an old-school plastics factory that has pivoted during the pandemic to making face masks and is now booming. Along comes Emily, the wayward daughter of an old friend, whom Paul hires to be his assistant, and she’s a sparkling force determined to prove her worth with the one chance she’s been given.  

Imogen, a beautiful former acquaintance of Paul’s, also coincidently appears outside the factory, down on her luck and clearly full of ulterior motive. The masked truths of the women around him soon threaten to turn Paul’s quiet family life upside down.

Couldn’t make it past Ch4. What rot!

Misogynistic. Cliched. Awful. There’s a reason this is a free book. Even for free it isn’t worth your time.

Enjoyable soap-type story

Sometimes i want to just drift away with a family/business saga. This story has an engrossing plot with clever twists, and likeable characters who are given some tough life lessons. I recommend you lose yourself in it. Well made too... i enjoyed this, thank you Audible. 💖

Okay…

It wasn’t a bad book but I definitely wasn’t on the edge of my seat. It was all over rather sudden as there was no real build up with it just kind of ending. You were given a conclusion/resolution what felt like minutes after the conflict had arose. Just seemed like a mundane story of day-to-day life for the most of it. I don’t regret having listened to it though.

exceptional short story

Loved it, relevant without being overly dramatic and a great peak into the foibles of human beings.

Bittersweet ending, but satisfying, particularly for a short story, leaving me unable to stop until the end.
A satisfying end, character and worthy to the end.

Will definately explore more by this author.
Thank you audible.
