    10/10 do recommend reading this in the tub with a glass of wine and Fleetwood Mac playing softly in the background. SO DAMN GOOD.
  • Chelsea Humphrey

    I read one book at a time and routinely read at the gym on the treadmill and bike, but the book I’m reading is a hard copy and I can’t hold it as comfortably as my kindle. I had downloaded this short story/novella for free from Amazon thanks to my Goodreads friend Melisa so my dilemma was solved . I read this and can get back to my book . About this story - wow! I always enjoy epistolary novels and I wasn’t sure how this would work as a sho...

    Dear Mr. David Mayer,My name is Carrie Allsop. Please accept my apologies for contacting you out of the blue. I am writing to ask a quite humbling favor. I recently found some love letters in my husband's briefcase that I believe to be from your wife, Janet...With those words, this potent short story by Taylor Jenkins Reid begins. It's December 1976, and Carrie Allsop has taken every last ounce of courage to write the man whose wife she believes ...

    I stumbled upon this piece by Taylor Jenkins Reid completely by accident—thank you Goodreads and the daily digest—as I noticed a number of my fellow readers were offering their praise. A fan of short stories and having come off a horrid few days of bad reading, I thought I would take a look, and am pleased I did. In a story that took under an hour to read, I was pulled into a collection of letters between Carrie Allsop and David Mayer. Carrie...

    ★ 3 STARS ★ ▬⋆▬⋆▬⋆▬⋆▬⋆▬⋆▬⋆▬⋆▬⋆▬⋆▬⋆▬⋆▬⋆▬⋆▬ Esse livro é bem curtinho, por isso a leitura foi bem rápida. A história é toda contada através de cartas, o que eu gostei e me agradou. Porém, justamente por ser uma história curta eu acho que em alguns pontos ficou repetitivo.O final me supreendeu, não esperava que seria daquela maneira... mas eu gostei e me deixou satisfeita.

    50 pages that’s all. But packed with a fabulous story. In letters. Great!
  • Karla
    4 starsWow! This short read was so good! I’m sitting here thinking about the ending and I don’t know, did I want more? yes! But another part of me was strangely happy with it, actually the more I think about it the more I realize it makes sense for the MC. I also liked the concept of the letters there were so many emotions shared. I found myself analyzing their situation and even though I wanted things to go differently I understood why it wa...

    This was only 50 pages but it was so cute and there was so much story and I loved it! Taylor Jenkins Reid is my favorite. 💕 I love how this book was told in letters. It worked so well for a short story format, and for how short this book was I felt so emotionally invested in the story and I couldn’t wait to see how it would all turn out! I loved the ending so so so much. I will read anything by Taylor Jenkins Reid, I adore her writing so muc...

    This was such a good book even though it’s extremely short. But it was so cute and a little heartbreaking and I just loved how it was entirely written in letters! instagram || my blog || twitter

  • Theresa Alan
    This is good for a short story. When a woman, Carrie, discovers letters from a married woman named Janet to Carrie’s husband, Ken, Carrie writes Janet’s husband, David. David and Carrie find strength in one another as they try to figure out whether to confront their spouses or try to fix their respective marriages. The whole story is told via letters from the spouses that are being cheated on, as well as the letters their spouses have kept fr...

    i literally read this right after getting out of the shower while doing a face mask and eating grapes and let me tell you, it truly was a cathartic experiencethis short story proves, most importantly, a theory i've had for a long time now: don't trust men who don't appreciate david bowie. (generally 'don't trust men' but bitch i been knew.)it's truly so inspiring how much taylor jenkin reid just despises most male human beings, i relate to that s...

    What a beautiful, sad little story. How do you hold it inside and not let it show on your face?You asked how I hide it all. I don't know. I guess I find it pretty easy to look like nothing is happening when everything has changed.I know you only as handwriting on a page, and yet you might be my closest friend.I am not alone at the party. You are at this miserable party with me. And it brings a smile to my face to be standing next to you. Conte...

    This was a cute little novella, which told the story of two people who found out their spouses were having an affair with each other, creating a friendship between them. It was a short book, but nicely written and ultimately satisfying. It was pretty predictable and a little cuter than my usual fare, but all in all, a nice break from all the crime fiction I've been reading;-)Find more reviews and bookish fun at http://www.princessandpen.com

    3.5 review soon.
  • Fareya
    When the queen writes, you read, no questions asked! Taylor Jenkins Reid has the ability to simply make you feel and experience all of the raw emotions her characters are going through, and she does that in mere fifty pages. Seriously though, read this! It's well worth the hour.
  • Jayme
    A short story told in about 50 pages, and around 50 letters. Some between the lovers, Ken and Janet.Some between the scorned spouses, Carrie and David.Each discovers something because of the “evidence of the affair”..whether it’s about themselves, their spouse or their marriage...

    As I am eagerly anticipating reading The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, I was excited to hear that she had this short story/novella available on Kindle Unlimited. I needed a break from other books I am reading and was curious to experience Taylor Jenkin's Reid's writing style. It was a quick, easy read that gave insights into the human condition. I also enjoyed how well she portrayed the late seventies.
  • Irene Sim
    This is an amazing little book (if not a bit predictable in the end).I love how the story unfolds - past, present and future - and I love how real it feels.Go pick it up...

    "I will be here dancing with you for as long as we want to get groovy."The only problem about this short story is precisely that, it was all too short to begin with.Evidence of the Affair is a novella entirely written in letters exchanged between Carrie Allsop and David Mayers, and initiated by Carrie when she first discovers her husband and David's wife are having an affair. It shouldn't come as a surprise, given that TJReid is one of my favouri...
  • Lisa
    I was fully invested in Carrie and David and their marriages in the first page. I won’t write a long review because I don’t want to spoil anything. A wonderful way to spend a half hour and fully invest yourself in these lives.

    It was addictive and all and I liked it but also eh.Buddy read with Amy & May (will tag later) ♥
