Sort order. Aug 21, Lynn rated it did not like it. I only finished reading the book because of the fabricated reviews, and I wanted to see if the book would pick up or not. With occasional problems, life throws your way. I felt this story focused too much around the son. She loses her husband who cheated on her, and the other woman ended up having his baby. While reading this, I pictured Abbie as an older woman sitting in a rocking chair telling her life story.
The last chapter she meets another guy, but it ends. No development. No progress. No HEA. And most of all, no romance. I read all this whiny shit for nothing! Even at the end, Abbie was so worried about what her grown son thought of her meeting another man. If the plot was different, it might have been enjoyable. He dies early in the story, but her thoughts were just too lame to feel any sympathy for her.
Importantly, I love the romance genre, and this book had none. View all 47 comments. Mar 31, Maureen rated it really liked it Shelves: womens-fiction. I was really hooked on this book especially at the beginning. I sat up late the first night finding it hard to put down. After the first quarter of the story, I felt as though I was watching a Lifetime movie, but I was still interested. Abbie is a doctor who is married to another doctor, Alan, a cardiologist.
At the beginning of the story, she is in a terrible head-on car accident, the fault of a drunk driver. The drunk driver happens to be her husband!

He does not survive the wreck and she has I was really hooked on this book especially at the beginning. He does not survive the wreck and she has some serious injuries, but is able to be at her husband's bedside when he dies. There is a teenage son, Zack, who loves his father dearly, as does Abbie. When a devastating secret is revealed about her husband after his death, she is torn between loving him and hating him, and whether to reveal the secret to her son. It was a quick read, and did not have bad language or sex scenes.

Thanks to Netgalley for an e- ARC in exchange for an honest review Set in Nova Scotia, A Curve in the Road follows the women's lit pattern of a wife discovering her recently deceased husband has a whole whack of secrets. But I found myself reeled in by the relatable characters and the fast paced storyline. View all 6 comments.

The paramedics rush her to the hospital, but in the darkness of night they cannot find her dog Winston. This book was a page-turner. It grabbed me from the start and didn't let go. Although there were several twists and turns and surprises, the story was realistic and entirely plausible. I was so involved with the characters and the relationships between them that I read it in one setting.

There are twists and turns around every corner and through it all you will find yourself rooting for Abbie MacIntyre, a wife, mother, a woman betrayed, and truly likable protagonist. Feb 20, Princessdarcy rated it did not like it Shelves: february Then our waiter brings our appetizers, and we admire the presentation before we dig in The waiter brings our main courses, and Nathan and I lean forward to pick up our forks.
We talk about all sorts of other things too, and time flies by Oh you leaned forward to pick up your fork? That's very important to the story I don't know how I would picture someone eating if you didn't describe the body movements of picking up a fork! The whole book is filled with that garbage! You find out in the first ten or so pages what the 'secret' is that the husband has been keeping which if you've ever read a book before in your life you'd be able to predict what that 'secret' could be Once we find out the secret, it's just an entire book of the woman whinging about her life, obsessing over her dog I mean I'm all for dog lovers but this was over the top and considering her kid's feelings around her romantic feelings which was just awkward.
Really terrible writing, no plot development, the characters were flat and over all it felt like reading someone's poorly written journal. View all 4 comments.

A Curve in the Road by Julianne MacLean
Especially if it is about someone tries that starts new after something bad happens! This book promised to be a great one for me! It sadly wasn't. The writing didn't work that great for me, since it sometimes felt very stilted and at the next moment as if it was rushing through the plot. The plot itself wasn't that great for me either. It sa I can confess without guilt that the cover of this book sucked me in, and when i read what it was about i was even more interested! It sadly wasn't anything new or with a new spin, just the rather typical "cheating and now what" kind of story that i am neither a fan of nor find exciting to read about if they are done well, sadly in this case it wasn't done well.
The one thing i really loved about this book was how the main character cared for her dog! She's in an accident and basically only cares about her dog! Which is so realistic and relatable in my option as a dog owner! All in all this was a disappointing read for me. But overall it is not a horrible book so if you don't have anything against the cheating trope give this one a try, i guess. Aug 09, Karen Rush rated it really liked it. She is thrown a curveball and her storybook life begins to unravel.
The author excels at building character relationships and sprinkling in twists I never saw coming. View all 5 comments.

Especially when most of the time that statement had no bearing on what was happening in the story. The character demands to know her blood pressure reading at the scene of a horrific accident where she had to be cut our of her vehicle with the jaws of life. The reason she needed this information at that specific time? Although the character is exhausted and injured herself, she insists on taking over from the weary nurse. Her dog went missing after the accident. Who does this? When the author writes a scene where our intrepid doctor is actually performing a surgery the dialog reads like a cheesy hospital drama written by someone who has never been in a hospital, let alone performed surgical procedures.
His mistress invites her to meet at a bar. That hussy needs an ass whooping, not TLC. The writing was also a sticking point for me. I went into this book believing it to be a novel about a woman dealing with the discovery, after a terrible accident, that her husband was cheating on her. Instead, the bulk of the book consists of the doctor complaining that she can no longer perform surgery due to the narcolepsy she suffers from since the accident and mooning over the veterinarian she has now fallen in love with.
What about the mistress? What about her husband driving drunk and almost killing her? Overall, this book was a huge disappointment. It took a long time to get absolutely nowhere and bored me from start to finish. The only drama in this story was in the summary. My advise is that you never pick up this book.

He's using Fine Road Anarchy, Fine Road Tools, and MoveIt mods, the curve control is done with Moveit mod as Jason has mentioned, if you highlight the segment in game you'll notice a dot in the center, grab that by left clicking, then hold the button down, then move mouse back n fore the two directions.
