KIRKUS REVIEW

A third book -- and still it reads like a good idea for a story, but not a well thought through and finished product. She has her situation:- three couples, one happily married, with a troublesome son; one outwardly happy, but inwardly disrupted by the woman's sterility, the man's unfaithfulness; the third, a bickering, mal-adjusted pair. Into this group, at a New Hampshire lake resort, is thrust the breath of scandal, a former mistress of the second man, and his small and irresistible daughter. But the author doesn't quite know how to solve it, so she crashes the lady friend and bickering author husband over a cliff. Not convincing, either as to characters or plot.
