Editorial Reviews

Review

"It uplifts you on so many levels it's difficult to know where to start. I could relate to almost every single scenario in this book. Clearly when you think you are going through something alone there are many other women going through exactly the same difficulties and emotions. The author brought out the characterizations brilliantly. There were so many times I knew exactly how the ladies felt.  I am sure that every woman in the world has experienced similar situations to a certain degree." Jackie Williams, Author of Silence of Scandal 

About the Author

I loved reading as a child, and looked forward to my father taking me to Barnes & Noble to buy a new book. At 10 years old, I was obsessed with Nancy Drew and collected over twenty of her books, devouring them in less than four hours, unable to wait for my next one. In 6th grade I wrote two novels, I called them The Linda Wells Mysteries. I wrote them in a battered spiral notebook, complete with several hand drawings! It was then that I decided I wanted to write a real novel one day. But when I graduated high school, the thought of majoring in English scared me. What would I do when I graduated? Sit home all day and write books? I was afraid, and with no guidance, I chose Nutrition as my major, and received a Masters in Exercise Physiology. My two other loves. Although I went on to love activities like weight lifting, rock climbing, white-water rafting and jumping out of airplanes, there was something missing: no real goal, no end point to reach for. One boring Saturday evening in September, I sat in front of my computer and decided to write. It became an obsession. Something I buried away for years had finally unleashed. It was my passion. Storytelling. Something I lost sight of as I traveled down my conveyor belt of a life. It was all I wanted to do. So here I am today, to let you know that I wrote 2 contemporary romance novels. One is now published and the other I plan to publish at the end of August with the hope that someone will love them as much as I loved writing them. Enjoy the Ride!

I didn't know whether to laugh or cry through a lot of the book!

It uplifts you on so many levels it's difficult to know where to start. I could relate to almost every single scenario in this book. Clearly when you think you are going through something alone there are many other women going through exactly the same difficulties and emotions.

The author brought out the characterizations brilliantly. There were so many times I knew exactly how the ladies felt. Made me want to tear my hair out in frustration at their predicaments. The husbands are well portrayed without going over the top. I am sure that every woman in the world has experienced similar situations to a certain degree.

Some of the scenes are very hard hitting, but I felt that they were done very well. It's not until the women reach their lowest points that they can start to rebuild their lives and regain some dignity. There's also a lovely side plot with the ghastly Dept boss and a member of the kitchen staff. I wanted to bash a bowl of fried artichoke hearts over her thick head and then stuff her through a shredder!

If a book can make emotions like this come to the fore for the reader there is no way it can be other than brilliant. I can't wait to read more from this talented author.

I'm so happy that I chose to spend part of my vacation reading this fabulous, fun and oh-so-sexy book. Cheating to Survive is not your typical romance, but I believe it will resonate in some way with every woman on the planet. Infidelity is a very sensitive subject, and the author handled it beautifully and humorously. Personally, I don't condone stepping out on one's spouse, but I can certainly understand the temptation and impulse. In Heather, Victoria and Catherine's situations, I was actually rooting for their extra-marital affairs. All three were stuck in marriages that left them feeling disrespected, under-appreciated, undesirable and unloved. So, I couldn't help but be happy for them when opportunities for excitement, passion and fulfillment presented themselves. I will refrain from any spoiler alerts in regard to the ending. That's a pleasure to be discovered by other readers. Just know that Cheating to Survive is an excellent read from start to finish. I look forward to the next book in this series.

Faced with discontent in your marriage, what would you do? Ms. Ardigo takes on this truly difficult question. We meet three dynamically different women, each floundering about in the deep end of their marriage and wondering what will save them.

Each make the choice to explore a relationship outside their marriage, to find emotional or physical fulfillment. Heather is married to someone who places their individual achievements far above the needs and wants of his family. Victoria is married to her high school sweetheart and though she tries to stay connected, there is no doubt that they have matured into very different people over the past thirty years. Catherine's marriage problems stem from her past and her inability to cope with normal intimacy.

Ms. Ardigo takes us on a journey where we explore the inner workings of these women's minds and hearts and the value they place on family and love. In the end each woman comes to their own conclusions about how the future unfolds, and it is the honesty within their circle of friendship that helps them rescue themselves.

A truly well-crafted and emotionally conceived book that encourages us not to judge but to try to understand.

I must confess that I am surprised about this book and how it is told and the style in the book. It was not what I had expected and it took me by surprise but I must say that it made the book more memorable and the style fit the story very well, surprisingly well even. The book is very well written and the language is very well used to make the plot and twist in the book outstanding. The language helps to drive the story line and the story line is very realistic so it is easy to get drawn in to the book and get hooked. I read all 3 books in a day and that is not common for me to do but I couldnt get enough when I got into the book and into the story.

This book also challenged me and my viewings because I hate cheating and finds no excuse what so ever for it, but when I read this book I could put myself in the womens perspective and I sort of understood why they did it and what drove them to the point of doing what they did. I was so surprised who I could do this and still have my thoughts about cheating and well that hasnt changed but this gave me another perspective of things and what drives people into doing what they do.

Even if this book may sound heavy and dark it is not only that, it is romantic, it is funny and yes I laughed too. So the way the author can write a story that is kind of heavy and isnt the most easy subject and still make the book so awesome is something special and really good. I enjoyed the book a lot and I hope that I one day will have enough money over to buy this one and the rest as paperback because they are so good even if they challenge your views and perspective of life and makes you see things in different lights.

If you havent read this book yet, you have missed something because I felt like I had missed something when I was finished with it. Like Why hadnt I read this before? So this book is a really really good book and a must read book.
