Oh my gosh. This is so not my kind of book- I read fantasy and historical fiction, romance if it has one of those elements. Contemporary fiction never catches my eye.

I also don't tend to get Indie books without a lot of reviews unless they are right up my alley- I have been burned by quid pro quo reviews too often.

This book was on a free book blog, though, and caught my eye because I am long time married with older kids like the focus of this book. I also liked the idea of focusing on the consequences of love, not just the flowers and hearts.

I just read it in one setting, and wow- what a story. This author has a talent for characters, motivations, and changing things up. Just when you think you understand the situation based on one person's viewpoint, you find another story entirely from someone else's. It You start to think you know who the good guys and bad guys are, then you wonder. Which is the entire point of the book, I guess.

Anyway, it follows a man who leaves his wife after meeting his true love. He does what so many men do, leaving his wife and children so he can follow his dream unburdened. Is he the bad guy? But the ex wife takes it badly, doesn't take care of business, and the suffer. Is she the bad guy? The other woman is just love struck, no bad guy there. The author purposefully lets you in on details about the people that make it impossible to see them as either heroes or villains.

In the end, I still hated the dad for abandoning his kids, and thought he was a philandering jerk, but saw why his paramour loved him anyway. And then ... well, read it and find out!

"Nobody's Fault", was an enthralling story. I didn't want to stop reading it, but everyone needs sleep now and then. The next morning, I reached for the book with one hand and my first cup of coffee with the other.

The structure of the story was such that when each point-of-view change came along, I was that much more driven to keep going. Those last-minute twists were unexpected, and cleverly done. I've already picked up Ms. Tyler's next book, but I'm saving it until I know I'll have time to finish it in one sitting!

I normally shy away from domestic dramas, especially when it's that old plot line "middle-aged man dumps family for young cutie." It's been done. And done. And done again. Yet there was something about the descriptions I'd read of Terry Tyler's books that told me she was an author with an edge. That if there was a way to make this type of story new, she might be the one to pull it off. Pull it off, she does. In NOBODY'S FAULT, Terry Tyler takes exciting risks with her narrative that, combined with carefully drawn characters, make for a funny but powerful novel. Adrienne, Nick's new love, is a strong and complex personality who never set out to become involved with a married man. Nick's wife Ria is no sad drab little housewife tattooed with the footprints of all the family members she's allowed to walk over her. She's gorgeous and tough and gives as good as she gets. Tyler is clever in how she handles the end of Ria and Nick's long marriage. There's no extended melodrama. The characters rush headlong into their new lives willing to take the bumps and bruises that come with grabbing for their dreams. Yet the normal pains of dislocated daughters and their guilt-ridden father sitting uncomfortably over holiday dinners isn't enough for the author. Instead, just as everyone settles into a new--if fragile--normal, Tyler shatters them again with a single violent blow. This time when the women in Nick's life are sent spinning, there's no telling what the result will be. Madness? Murder? NOBODY'S FAULT is an amazing ride--climb on board and HOLD ON!

Nobody's Fault was very well written and the author uses descriptions and dialogue with expertise and care. The story itself was told well and the loose ends tied together nicely in the end. The author wove multiple points of view from different perspectives about the same incidents and gave us a clear picture of what each character felt and saw and why. Despite all that, I still came away from Nobody's Fault feeling sad and more than a little ticked off. The title is wrong... it was clearly the husband/father's fault. ALL OF IT WAS - any man that walks away from his marriage and children to live with another woman so he can be "fulfilled" with "true love" is a sleazeball. When those kids are grown and gone you can find your own freedom and a new life if that's what you need to. But to walk away from your wife, leave your children to live in a single parent home for your own emotional needs? Selfish beyond description. As for the feelings of his new love, the other woman? I had no sympathy for her in any shape or form - so she fell in love, so what? She knew he was married and she trespassed anyway. None the less, I will read other work by this author on a different subject matter, she definately knows how to tell a story.

I guess you could say I've become a true Terry Tyler fan. This is interesting because hers are the only books I read and enjoy in this genre, but then that's possibly because hers is a genre all of its own. It is contemporary fiction with a strong focus on the contemporary. I would say it is very much 'reality fiction'. Nobody's Fault is almost starkly real - it is about the pain, the intensity and the complications of real life in what is ostensibly a very normal setting. It is also about great and enduring love. Terry's characters are all people we know or have met, and her skill is that she dips into the story almost everyone has lurking in their background and brings it to vivid and dramatic life. This is why we can relate so well to Nick and Adrienne, to Sharon and her internet buddies, to Nick's daughters, fighting their own teenage battles. This is a gripping and very well woven story told in different threads and at two different times, all brought together with a shocking twist. But... the end will see it right. A great 21st century read and another cracker from this talented author. Now where's the next?
