the correct category and that Ms Handeland is very skilled in this genre This was a great book and I m glad I took the chance.Can you even imagine your ex husband the one who cheated on you and then married his mistress shows up at your door and appears to believe you are still married Just that concept alone makes for a great story, and it s exactly the story of Just Once by Lori Handeland.When she found out that he was having an affair, Francesca Frankie Sicari divorced Charley Blackwell Charley then married the mistress, Hannah, and had been married with her for the past twenty years Then one evening, Frankie gets a call from Hannah and she s looking for Charley Frankie has absolutely no idea why Hannah would be calling her thinking Charley would be there, but before she can even figure it out, Charley shows up trying to use his door key as if it was the normal thing for him to do It is clear that Charley believes that Frankie is his current wife, but when when Hannah tells Charley that she s his wife, he really thinks she s crazy.Charley undergoes hospital tests that reveal a devastating diagnosis he has a brain mass This diagnosis could very well be why Charley has suddenly forgotten the past twenty years of his life He seems to have forgotten his marriage to his current wife, Hannah, his divorce from Frankie, and even so, he has forgotten that he and Frankie s daughter, Lisa is now dead.It s at this point Frankie makes a life changing and emotional decision to go along with Charley s belief that they are still a couple still very much in love and married Her decision ultimately forces her to deal with the past that she thought she had overcome those many years ago.I thought the book was wonderful and sad at the same time In all honesty, if I had met someone like Hannah, I know for a fact that I d want nothing to do with her despite the tragedy she must live through She s a very selfish person and it made me feel even worse for Frankie Just Once

is a heartbreaking book that I just devoured in one afternoon It s about a woman named Frankie, who receives a knock on the door one night It s her ex husband, a man who cheated on her and walked out on their marriage 20 years earlier He s been married to the woman he cheated on her with since he left Frankie wants to slam the door in Charley s face, until she realized her ex husband thinks they re still married and living in the 1980s He remembers nothing about his current wife and is still madly in love with Frankie.After a devastating diagnosis, Frankie makes the heart wrenching decision to play along with the charade that they are still very much in love and married, and this forces her to confront the heartache she thought she overcame years ago.I thought the book was wonderful and sad, but I REALLY, REALLY hated Charley s current wife, Hannah Even though you get a lot of her backstory and learn about her and the tragedy she lives through, I found myself having no compassion for her I thought she was the most selfish person ever, and my heart just broke for Frankie even.If it weren t for her character, I would probably give this book stars As it is though, this book was very well written and certainly tugged at my heartstrings.3 out of 5 stars for Just Once by Lori Handeland flag Like see review Kimberly rated it it was amazing Jan 11, 2019 Alexandra rated it it was

remember that their daughter died, that he left Frankie and that he s been married to Hannah all this time, he doesn t remember Hannah at all The reason for his memory loss turns out to be a cancerous
