 We’ve all been around a couple who can engulf the attention of an entire room merely by occupying it. Harry and Madeleine Winslow are that set; the natural ease between them is palpable and their chemistry is almost tangible. He is a recent National Book Award winner with a promising career ahead of him, and she is blessed with family money, but radiates beauty, elegance, and humility. Whether they are abroad in Italy after he receives the Rome Prize, in their ambrosial East Hampton home, or in gritty Manhattan, they are always surrounded by close friends and those who wish to penetrate their inner circle. During a summer spent at the beach, they meet 26 year-old Claire and, as the summer blazes on, she is slowly inducted into their world. Claire can’t help but fall in love with Harry and Maddy and at the end of the summer, it is no longer enough to just be one of their hangers-on. Told through the omniscient eyes of Maddy’s childhood friend Walter, Indiscretion is a juicy, page turning novel with writing that is sophisticated and lyrical. Deeply textured, full of light and darkness, and overwhelmingly sensual, this book will be the sexiest, most intimate story you read all year. 

My Review:   
Why I am giving this book by author Charles Dubow is that it was slow for me in the beginning and then very very fast pace the rest of the book. In the beginning of the first couple of chapters I was not to sure if I was going to get into it then all of a sudden there were so many things happening and the story was being told thru some one else's eyes, just kinda caught me off guard. 

But once I really started getting the plot and the storyline I could then keep up and enjoyed it. Author Charles Dubow has a unique style of writing to me. I read several genres but this one was different in ways that I can only say that "You Need To Read This One For Yourself To Decide!"     
I will also say that some of the sensual juicy page turns can be, as the synopsis says a little overwhelming. I am not into reading very intimate story lines.  But I will say the book was very well told by Maddy's childhood friend, Walter. 

So there you go, you need to pick up this one and let me know what you think. 

And so due to the above I am giving this book as of now a Breath of Life Rating of:

Four Clock Rating!!!

Disclosure: I did receive this book in exchange for my review. But the opinions are mine, your opinion may differ, and that is fine with me.


About the Author:  

   Charles Dubow was born in New York City and lived on the Upper East Side for the first thirteen years of his life. As a child, he attended the Collegiate School, a private boy’s school on the Upper West Side. Weekends and summers were spent in his family house on Georgica Pond in East Hampton, Long Island, which served as the inspiration for Indiscretion.

After boarding school, he went to Wesleyan University in Middletown, Ct., and graduated from New York University. Following his sophomore year at Wesleyan he took a year off and went to work on a sheep ranch in New Zealand for six months. When he returned to the U.S. he studied at the Art Students League in Manhattan. Originally he had wanted to be a painter but was disillusioned with the art world and instead turned to fiction. However, after writing several unpublished novels in his twenties, he went into the magazine business, eventually becoming one of the founding editors of Forbes.com and later an editor at Businessweek.com.

In 2007 a health scare prompted him to try to write another book. The general plotline of Indiscretion had been knocking around in his head for years, but in order to write it he had to wake up before dawn every day, working also on weekends and holidays over the course of three years.

Dubow met his wife Melinda in 1991 in New York City. They married in 1996 and today they live in the city with their two children, William and Isabella, and chocolate Labrador Luke. This is his first book.
