From USA Today bestselling author Julianne MacLean comes a suspenseful, emotionally charged novel that explores the secrets and hidden truths within a seemingly perfect marriage.
Abbie MacIntyre is living the dream in the picturesque Nova Scotia town she calls home. She is a successful surgeon, is married to a handsome cardiologist, and has a model teenage son who is only months away from going off to college.
But then one fateful night, everything changes. When a drunk driver hits her car, Abbie is rushed to the hospital. She survives, but the accident forces unimaginable secrets out into the open and plagues Abbie with nightmares so vivid that she starts to question her grip on reality. Her perfect life begins to crack, and those cracks threaten to shatter her world completely.
The search for answers will test her strength in every way—as a wife, a career woman, and a mother—but it may also open the door for Abbie to move forward, beyond anger and heartbreak, to find out what she is truly made of. In learning to heal and trust again, she may just find new hope in the spaces left behind.

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.
I’m not understanding why all the ravaging reviews?
It is told from Abbie’s perspective, and it was boring! I only finished reading the book because of the fabricated reviews, and I wanted to see if the book would pick up or not.
It is mostly reading female/mother/wife/ life problems! With occasional problems, life throws your way.
There is no character development — absolutely none.
I felt this story focused too much around the son. And, Abbie’s point of view was boring AF.
She loses her husband who cheated on her, and the other woman ended up having his baby.
Abbie’s problems consist of complaining, crying, what she will do next, how she will go about handling it. The typical LIFE ROUTINE.
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! (Angry)
This isn’t a romance novel I could escape in because it was too dull and didn’t have any romance.
Even at the end, Abbie was so worried about what her grown son thought of her meeting another man.
His father cheated on her, got another woman pregnant, and she’s worried about what her son would think?
It sounds like Abbie was making excuses even though she claimed she wasn’t and you're worried about how your son will feel about you moving on after you took him to see his half brother?
If the plot was different, it might have been enjoyable. I didn’t like the plot because there wasn't one, and I sure as hell hadn’t enjoyed it.
I do think it was sad her husband passed away. Though, didn’t connect to these characters. 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.
