The Dilemma is a change of direction for B. A. Paris, who’s usual thrillers always have me on the edge of my seat. This is a simple story. Happy couple Livia and Adam each know a secret they they can’t bring themselves to tell each other for they know the secret will break the other. Adam isn’t sure exactly what’s happened so wants to give his wife one last night of happiness at her 40th birthday party. Livia just doesn’t know how to tell Adam her secret for fear of how he’ll take the news. A true dilemma!
Whilst the novel sinks nowhere near the dark depths that Paris’s usual novels venture, it still manages to pull you in and have you racing through the pages. I always enjoy the way B. A. Paris draws you in and grabs you from page one and doesn’t let you go and I think even though this isn’t a dark thriller – it still has the same feel.
