Jane Green, author the best-sellers The Beach House and Second Chance, follows happily married Alice who moves from London to the USA only to discover that her life is not as fairy-tale as it seems in Spellbound.
Alice has everything. So why isn't she happy? After all, she has a handsome husband, a gorgeous home and membership of London's most exclusive clubs.
Okay, Joe can't keep his hands to himself - but she got what she wanted, didn't she? When Joe's indiscretions force a transfer to New York, Alice hopes it'll be a fresh start. And when they find a beautiful old house in Connecticut she is overjoyed.
For a while Alice and Joe are as happy as newlyweds. But then the late nights and unexplained absences start.
Alice is desperate to give her marriage a fairy tale ending.
