Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Delinsky's ( Facets ) diverting page-turner focuses on the disintegration of a woman's picture-perfect, well-managed existence. Thirty-eight-year-old Laura Frye seems to have it all: a hardworking CPA husband, two teenagers of only average rebelliousness, a successful restaurant and catering business and a beautiful home in western Massachusetts. When her husband Jeff vanishes without a trace, she's convinced there's been foul play. But six nightmarish days after her husband disappears, an IRS agent appears at their door: Jeff is being investigated for tax fraud. Daphne Phillips, Laura's friend and lawyer, offers support, but can't stop the IRS from freezing Jeff and Laura's assets--including the funds she needs to keep her restaurant afloat--nor can she protect Laura from the local newspaper that seems viciously bent on exploiting her problems. When Laura's just about ready to crack, who should breeze in but the very man she's least prepared to cope with: Christian, Jeff's charismatic brother, the family's black sheep and, long ago, Laura's first lover. $75,000 ad/promo.

From Library Journal

For the Romance crowd, here are two hardcover reprints by Delinsky. First appearing in 1991, A Woman Betrayed follows the tribulations of Laura Frye after the disappearance of her husband, whom she later learns had numerous awful secrets. Flip Side finds geological consultant Chloe MacDaniel determined to quash a development project until she meets her former flame who, of course, is heading that project. Delinsky is always a crowd pleaser.

It's not very often that I get so caught up in a story that I have dreams about it. But this time it happened. I got very little else done during the time I was reading this novel. I could not put it down. And then at night I'd have dreams about the main characters----Laura and Christian especially. I am a true romantic.He was her "knight in shining armor"------came to her rescue. But the way Ms. Delinsky told the story, it was done in such a way that you were unable to put the book down, unable to go to sleep at night, unable to stop thinking about the story----the betrayal, the hurt, the strength in a woman---so many facets of this story. I truly loved the book. I hated to see it end, even though I can now get work done---finally. It's a story that will stay with me forever. This was a novel. However, it's a story that has been true in real life. And for many of us, escaping "real life" is also a dream at times. Maybe we don't want to escape a crime---but to just get away, start over somewhere else, as someone else. But reading this lets us know the mess and hurt that it leaves in the wake. And that will haunt many forever.I'll never forget it.

The whole premise of this Barbara Delinsky novel, is that the reader wants to find out what happens to Laura Frye's husband. The book opens with central character Laura Frye's husband abandoning her, and as the book closes, Laura's husband is still on the run, (he's running from the Authorities on a Tax Fraud charge, but also wanted out of the marriage) but has simply changed his name.
I'm not saying this woudn't be a worthwhile read for hardcore Delinsky fans. But it seemed like nothing was tied up at the end. There is no real payoff for making it through this rather longer Delinsky novel. I just don't know how wise it is to construct a long novel around a single problem, drag your readers endlessly and repetitively through that problem, right up till the end, and then not even satisfactorily tie things up in a definite manner. I like a definite and absolute happy ending, like in Barbara Delinsky's 1998 novel "Coast Road".
In all fairness, this was an earlier effort of Delinsky's written in 1991, and it was one of those straight-to-paperback novels written before Delinsky was even writing hardbacks.
There are some situations that are hard to believe here, also. For instance, central character, Laura, is not only betrayed by her missing husband, but also by her best friend, Daphne. Delinsky didn't provide enough back-story on, what seemed to me, to be a very together lady-lawyer (Daphne) and how it was that she (Daphne) a smart and educated lawyer, could come to seem so flaky by the end of the novel via her "betrayal" of central character, Laura.
Even Laura's Mother comes across as cold and unfeeling towards her daughter during this tragic time. Does everyone and anyone simply have it in for poor Laura? Well, not everyone.

This is the first book I have read by this author and was not very impressed. I am sure her others are better or maybe I missed something here, whatever the happenings, it lacked sizzle and suspense. Being a suspense/romance it made for a somewhat dull read. The female lead of Laura Frye was a little too whiny and I felt as though she thought people 'owed' her. The missing husband Jeff was weak and we never got to know him very well. I thought she brought in the long lost 'wild' brother Christian a little too late to be interesting.
~A seemingly perfect 20 year marriage falls apart when Laura's devoted husband Jeff mysteriously disapears without a trace. He has left behind two kids and alot of questions. As the days go by Laura finds her 'perfect' life was not perfect by any means. What had Jeff been doing all those years behind her back? Was he really missing? Or did he take off? The pieces begin to come together as information arises from his dirty dealings and Laura's life slowly erodes. She is left with a shocking image of her 'true' husband's persona.
Looking for a way to cope and get her life back, she turns to Jeff's elusive brother Christian Frye. A wild and free spirit. He shows her love and life again. What she thought she had lost so many years ago, she finds once again, but will the past secrets come to tear them apart? Are her friends, truly her friends? Should she be looking more closely?
What started out as a promising mystery, turned out to be a dull look into a jilted woman's life falling apart and her immediate yearning for her husband's brother. It would've been much better had Jeff been in the story longer and there was less of Laura's whining and self-pity. In short, I expected more. It started out great and sort of fizzled as it went on. In my opinion, the side romance between her best friend and the cop was much more interesting.

Laura Frye thought she had the perfect life. Until one night her husband Jeff didn't come home. Laura is sure there has been some terrible accident that has prevented Jeff's homecoming. He would never disappear on purpose. As if the disappearance isn't enough, six days later the IRS is knocking on her door to inform her Jeff is being investigated for tax fraud. The man she thought she knew isn't the man she knew at all. And the bad news doesn't end there...but you'll have to read the book to find out what happens next!
A Woman Betrayed was an absolute fabulous book. The book gets going on the first page and doesn't stop until the end. The reader begins to wonder just how much this one woman can take and how much she'll have to endure. The book is written in such a way that everything that happens to Laura and her family is believeable. Ms. Delinsky did her homework well before writing this book. Every event falls into place in a long (and I do mean long) line of betrayal. The storyline of Daphne, Laura's lawyer friend, and Tack, the IRS agent, added to the story too. Their storyline ties in with the rest of the story effortlessly.
I can't say enough about this book. I just couldn't read it fast enough. I had to know what happened. This book will bring out all the emotions--sadness, anger, hurt, and maybe a little happiness at the end. This is a book to keep and read again!
