A Good Heart is Hard to Find, Trisha Ashley



I was slightly disappointed to find that this was not a new book by Trisha Ashley but an old one reissued with a new title. Luckily, it wasn’t one I’d read before. Cass is a writer of successful, terrifying horror stories. She’s perhaps been influenced by the terrible treatment she received as a child from her obviously insane father. The silly woman has been stuck for twenty years in a relationship with a married man. Max won’t leave his invalid wife (or her money) and refuses to have children. Now, he’s in California and the scales are starting to fall from Cass’s deluded eyes. When tall, dark, eccentrically dressed Cass meets tall, dark saturnine Dante and immediately fights with him, it’s clear how the story will end. Trisha Ashley is always entertaining and it’s fun following events to their inevitable conclusion. I did think the religious ravings of her father were made funnier than they would have been in fact; from another author, this would have been a tale of abuse and damage. I think Trisha Ashley’s books have improved since this one was published (as Singled Out) in 2003. I read it courtesy of NetGalley and it’s out on 25th January 2018.
