Because She Loves Me is a standalone novel by author Mark Edwards. After having an eye operation at the hospital Andrew Sumner meets the girl of his dreams- edgy and beautiful Charlie. The two embark on an intense affair but he soon wonders whether all is as it seems as when tragedy starts to strike people in his life he must confront a startling truth about whether Charlie may end up being the woman of his nightmares.
I tend to find Mark Edwards novels a bit of a difficult read, I was unable to finish The Magpies, and this novel too has something of a slow build up with much of the book taken up by details of the relationship. Read the full review here
