Synopsis:

A tale of happenstance and second chance from the author of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

“Nobody in the world knows our secret . . . that I’ve ruined Bev’s life, and she’s ruined mine.”

Petra’s romantic life has always been a car-crash, and even in her sixties she’s still capable of getting it disastrously wrong. But then she falls in love with Jeremy, an old chum, visiting from abroad. The fatal catch? Jeremy is her best friend’s husband.

But just as Petra is beginning to relax into her happy ever after, she finds herself catapulted to West Africa, and to Bev, her best friend, whom she’s been betraying so spectacularly. Meanwhile, on opposite sides of the world, two other women are also struggling with the weight of betrayal: Texan Lorrie is about to embark on the biggest deception of her life, and in China Li-Jing is trying to understand exactly what it is her husband does on his West African business trips . . .

It turns out that no matter where you are in the world, everyone has something to hide. Can Bev—can anyone—be trusted?
