A Dream Come True - Maureen Lee Predictable but worth a read

This is a very pleasant story which is worth reading as a short diversion. It is almost entirely predictable. Maggie, who is bored by her marriage, beds a colleague at a sales conference in Brighton. Her lover is also married and lives within driving distance of Maggie's home. You could almost make up the rest of the story for yourselves, but Maureen Lee has injected some humour and a few small surprises, so don't pass this book by. Pick it up. It'll keep you amused for an hour.
