Despite all the shrieks and cries, your character has gone and done something stupid!
Jon and Juliet discuss Harlan Coben’s Six Years and what it can mean when characters treat very old or very new romances with enormous (and maybe crazy) passion to power a story.
Six Years (Amazon Link and Copy)

A masterpiece of modern suspense from #1 New York Timesbestselling author Harlan Coben.

Six years have passed since Jake Fisher watched Natalie, the love of his life, marry another man. Six years of keeping his promise to leave Natalie alone, and six years of tortured dreams of her life with her new husband, Todd.

But she is not Natalie.

Soon Jake’s search for the woman who broke his heart puts his very life at risk, as he uncovers the secrets and lies that love can hide….
