    1. I have enjoyed a few of Paula Daly s other books so I was pretty sure I would enjoy this one too.Right at the start, I couldn t help but feel for main character, Roz She s struggling at work, then rushing home to pick right home to up her son, George on time from after school care Her husband ran up a bunch of debt, ran around on her, and then ran home to his mother As a result she lost her business and home and even the family dog and now her low paying job leaves her with barely enough money t [...]

    3. The Mistake I Made is part Indecent Proposal and part Fatal Attraction It s creative problem solving that turns into regretful mistakes, it s a sexy thought that turns into a disturbing reality, and all in all it s pretty good The Mistake I Made is a psychological suspense thriller novel written by Paula Daly It started out pretty slow but once the thriller suspense element came into play, I quickly felt engaged There weren t too many components I haven t seen read before but this novel was stil [...]

    4. This is Paula Daly s third novel I had read her book What Kind of Mother Are You and found it a bit of a let down so I m thrilled to say this book had a lot going for it in my opinion.Every choice has a consequenceYou know the saying you don t know until you walk in someone else s shoes This book reflects and shares a brilliant story that might have many wondering what they would do.Single mother Roz has a reached breaking point After the dissolution of her marriage, Roz s business has gone und [...]

    5. After listening to the audiobook of What Kind of Mother Are You and reading The Trophy Child, both of which left a memorably strong impression, I was keen for another page turning read from Paula Daly With a knack for throwing a cast of credibly flawed characters into a variety of awkward situations, Paula Daly s witty, compassionate and loquacious style of prose draws the reader in Effortlessly humorous and genuinely perceptive, reading this author s novels is like sharing a bottle of wine with [...]

    6. Probably 3.75 stars.I had read another book by this author so when I saw this book in the library I thought I d check it out.This is the story of Roz, whose life has basically fallen apart Her husband has cheated on her, he s left her in a heap of debt, her business has gone to the wall meaning debt, and as the book begins, Roz and her son come home to find the bailiffs have been and taken away all her furniture Then she receives an eviction notice She really does have her back against the wall [...]

    7. Paula Daly makes writing gripping, page turning thrillers look easy I liked Just What Kind of Mother Are You and loved Keep Your Friends Close but The Mistake I Made takes her writing to a new level Paula writes with great wit and warmth and has that knack of creating flawed but loveable characters and telling their tale in a natural, compelling voice with lots of entertaining asides and observations But despite all this talk of wit and warmth, TMIM is a thriller a kind of Indecent Proposal set [...]

    8. 3 1 2 stars Great concept Roz is a single mother living in the Lake District She is in horrible debt which leads her to make one cringe worthy decision after another, slowly leading to a cascade of worse and worse consequences I won t say much to avoid spoilers, but overall it makes for a good read if you enjoy the tension of watching a life gradually unravel before your eyes Told in the first person, Roz is an engaging narrator frank and spunky What kept this out of the 4 star category for me [...]

    9. Paula Daly has a gem of a book in The Mistake I Made It has realism, wonderful comic timing and humour, plus a story that is incredibly plausible.Roz is a single parent, living with her son in the Lake District She works as a Physiotherapist Roz s life goes down hill rather quickly, with her son in trouble at school and her finances out of control She is over whelmed by debt, about to lose everything She is offered a chance to get some money quickly, by Scott Elias Elias s sexual proposition lea [...]

    10. So I read The Mistake I Made yesterday as a buddy read alongside a few of my favourite blogging pals, we all enjoyed it thoroughly and had a great deal of fun on Twitter as we read today though it s time to turn my thoughts to an actual review of the book which turned out to be typical Paula Daly brilliance.The Mistake I Made is kind of Indecent Proposal in the Lake District with added dark humour and a propensity to make you giggle when perhaps you shouldn t be a deeply absorbing tale of a smal [...]

    11. Thank you so much Grove Atlantic,Paula Daly for letting me read this fantastic read I read it all in one sitting I really felt for Roz and her situation as a single mother taking care of her son George, who seemed to be having issues acting out in his school Roz s ex Winston sure left her in a bind financially, To have debt collectors come take your stuff and just being near eviction, I dont even know what I would do in her place Even though she has a good job its not going to get her out of her [...]

    13.

    14. Good read for the first few chapters i grapple with how the author took the storyline,it was then that i notice that i have to keep on reading the plot because only then would i understand really what the book was all abouta single penniless mom who choose to do it all by herselfwith lots of debts,selfish ex cheating husband that did nothing for herleft her in debt.d now came an offer out of the blue which she never thinks twice about and it s every women s worst nightmare being played and used [...]

    15. The Mistake I Made questions what you might be capable of if circumstances became desperate Paula Daly has a talent for placing seemingly ordinary people in very challenging situations, and I thought Roz was a really well developed, believable character The book is clever and fast paced, and though it s my third by this author, I think it is my favorite Recommended for fans of domestic suspense and clever mysteries Find reviews and bookish fun at princessandpen

    16. Paula Daly s The Mistake I Made was marketed as a thriller Either I don t know what a thriller is, or Daly s publishers have taken some liberties with with word.Main character Roz has been down on her luck for awhile Her n er do well husband left her and their son with a mound of debt, she s lost her business, and she s currently on the verge of being evicted from her rental Seeing no other option, Roz compromises her principles and makes a decision that ends up causing a chain reaction of unint [...]

    17. 3.5 stars If you re familiar with the film,Indecent Proposal with Demi Moore, Woody Harrelson,and Robert Redford ,you will certainly feel after reading the book synopsis that you know how this story is going to be done What I was completely unaware was the roller coaster ride of emotions that Paula Daly s story was going to invoke Admittedly ,I know I have preconceived notions about a variety of topics But I like to approach each book I m reading with the understanding that occasionally,an autho [...]

    18. Although I was held interested throughout, I thought this book dragged on a bit for the first half and I was never quite sure where it was heading.So by the time I had reached the 61% mark I was relieved that things had started to pick up pace and the story was getting intriguing.Still I was a bit miffed that it had taken that long to get to the really exciting bits but also glad as it was in fact getting quite exciting by then.Overall I found it to be an intriguing story with lots going on I do [...]

    19. Roz is a single Mum, trying to juggle her busy job as a Physiotherapist and bringing up her 9 year old son Her ex has left her with huge debts to pay off and refuses to pay child support even though she has lost her business and home and is in danger of being evicted from her rented house When handsome, married businessman, Scott Elias offers to pay her a lot of money to spend a single night with him she finds the offer too good to refuse and thus starts a sequence of events that gets and out [...]

    20. 3 stars I liked the book But 5 stars for the audiobook reader she was excellent A better title for this book might be All the Mistakes I Made or The Mistake After Mistake After Mistake I Made, because Roz, the protagonist of this book, sure makes some doozies A minor example She s buried in debt and her furnishings are repossessed, so she buys new ones by applying for new credit cards OMG why would you compound your financial problems like that Despite being dumb and flawed, Roz is charming, so [...]

    21. This was really a thought provoking read, much like the movie Indecent Proposal many years ago Single mother Roz s marriage is over, her business is no longer viable, she is in major debt and has her nine year old son to support.Then Roz receives an eviction notice and from here the story picks up pace Roz meets Elias, an extremely wealthy man and Elias is extremely interested in Roz He offers Roz money to spend the night with him I can remember having a discussion about this with girlfriends on [...]

    22. 2.5 starsI really wanted to love this book but I struggled from the beginning Like any good recipe, it had all the right ingredients to really be a hit, but something was missing or not prepared properly because it just didn t deliver There were moments where I felt it was picking up steam, but then like a popped balloon it just fell flat again What did keep me reading was the premise of the storyline and I wanted to see how it was all going to end Was hoping for from this book but was disappoi [...]

    30. When things go worse in your life, when it looks bad for your kid, you are willing to do almost anything, right But what if that anything makes your life even terrible The plot is thoroughly intriguing and just keeps you at edge making you believe that you would do the same thing if you were in the protagonist s position Paula Daly makes it sound so convincing, as if it s something worth taking a risk for And besides whenever you are about to do something fallacious, what do you do You look for [...]
