    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.

    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 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...

    This is a great idea, but it's a little more basic than I was hoping for from the author of The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo. It's an epistolary novella, featuring letters exchanged between a man and a woman who have discovered their spouses are having an affair together. It is compelling enough to keep me wondering how it would end, but it's unfortunate that everything went pretty much exactly how I expected. No surprises here.I was also a lit...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    "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." Evidence of the Affair is a story told through a series of letters between two strangers who are linked by betrayal and heartbreak. I love reading books with this format and Taylor Jenkins Reid's execution was flawless as we watch the emotional relationship between these two strangers evolve. A quick reading exper...

    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 is currently free with Amazon Prime. Evidence of the Affair is a very quick read told in an exchange of letters format. I couldn't look away! Who doesn't want to see a cheating spouse exposed?? The ending was surprising and satisfying. Taylor Jenkins Reid is new to me and I can't believe I haven't read The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo. Well, it's on the way to me now!

    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

    Trigger warning : (view spoiler)[Infidelity, infertility (hide spoiler)]I discovered Taylor Jenkins Reid by reading her successful novel, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo and right away I feel in love with the story, with the author’s writing and her ability to bring emotions out of me I thought nonexistent. So I knew that I’ll be reading her others books as well cause I needed more and I couldn’t get enough. It took me a long time to deci...

    4 Stars ”It was just easier to consider the possibility that he’d changed his entire personality overnight than it was to believe he would cheat.” I loved this brief, but honest look at four people sadly disillusioned by their marriages in the mid 70s. Carrie’s husband is having an affair with Janet, Ken’s wife, but rather than confronting them, she writes a letter to Ken. Their resulting correspondence felt vulnerable and real. All fo...

    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.

    When sour turns so sweet! Taylor Jenkins Reid has done it again, this time with a short story you can finish in an hour or so. This is perfect reading for the month of October, 2018, especially, for both men and women. (Considering the latest political topic.) What starts out as your worst imagined situation turns into a delightful, and best situational ending. That may not sound romantic but we're dealing with life here people, real life, not th...
