It was called Atlantic Shift when I read it also printed as solo is it really necessary to travel halfway round the world to find the real you ? evie is a renowned cellist who has just left her husband jack she travels to new york where she has been booked to make an advert and also promote herself this enables her to meet her father who left home years ago and hides a secret of hers also to be with kate and ian as they follow thru on yet another expensive round of ivf but before she left london she had a stalker who sent her threatening letters the possibilities were endless but the police were powerless then they followed her to new york is breaking the rules and escaping from the past all it is cracked up to be ? what really spilt this for me was the characterisation of evie she came across as so shallow and one dimentional she was the last person i would want as a friend the characterisation of others was much better a few holes no mention what were the jobs of kate and ian; kate was invited to bristol or christmas but no mention of her there; an 11 year old would not drink g t; no mention made of filming the video in new york; would have made sense for kate ian to rent an apt; anneka was obvious too drawn out and repetitive note to author learn how to spell angkor wat bev Spoiler alert I really struggled with this book; the story was laboured I never got on with the characters which to start with is supposed to be the case and I found myself jumping forward to see if things improved It is easy to read and could have been an engaging story Read if this is your style of book but sadly I was disappointed What a selfish self absorbed person Eve was fault so sorry for her poor husband Jack she used him remorselessly yawn The sixth book by Emly Barr that I've read of whom the Sisterhood and The Perfect Lie were my favorites so far The story is very simple really and I didn't like the fact that what is written on the back as introduction is not what actually happens I think that the main character is a very selfish person and at times I just wanted to put the book away because I was so frustrated about the way she manipulates people Even though I didn't like the main character and the story outline what she has done in the USA which I will not mention here to keep it hidden from the next readers the author once again showed me she knows how to write and be different than most other authors out there I love Emily Barrs books this one was just as good as the others I just couldn't put it down and for the first time in a long time i have sat on the sofa and read a book it has been so effortless to read the book Evie at first the fact she was a muscian put me off because I wasn't really interested in the fact she was a celebrity but after 30 pages I loved her I felt sorry for her she annoyed me because she wasn't true to herself but like every character Emily Barr produces they're not perfect which is what I love so much about her booksI can't wait to read another one by Emily Barr At some point during this one I was so irked by the main character that I had to push myself to continue I do tend to dislike books in which I dislike the main character petty perhaps but I feel like I'm spending a certain amount of my time with these people and would rather they be people I enjoy hanging out with so to speak So Evie was not someone I wanted to be around This being said I do generally enjoy Barr and her writing so I continued As ever Barr's books seem to involve secret lives or hidden identities In the end this was worth the read but decidedly not my favorite by her An excellent and refreshing book for twenty to forty somethings Evie Silvermann is a minor celebrity who has made being a cellist semi cool She decides to leave her husband and find herself What she finds however is NOT what she expected Painful secrets with long shadows finding out what's missing in her life and an unknown stalker intermingle with success in Manhattan a new life and fascinating relationshipsA read with truly a bit of everything for everyone This book is so fun I started reading this book because the main character is a celloit and i played cello at that time The main character Evye lest her husband got a dangerous stalker found her daughter who she gave up for adoption when she was 15 years old The story is so light and interesting I loved how every time her life was a mess she wold practise cello for six hours I thought that the story is very clever and i want to read other books by Emily Barr
