Summary

"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?

An ingenious plot

This engaging story explores the unexpectedly intense emotional life of a woman in her sixties. The plot is very cleverly constructed with numerous tributaries that connect in odd ways. Sometimes I had to suspend disbelief but my misgivings were skillfully managed. Josie Lawrence is very good indeed. She reads with wonderfully diverse accents and a rich baritone for the man ( who I found the least interesting character) She throws herself into every role with her well known exuberance and is sometimes very funny even though it is quite a dark tale.
I was never sure of the outcome and listened happily in long stretches. Ultimately the book feels a bit contrived
And more like a film plot than a novel.

Disappointing

I've read and enjoyed a lot of books by this author. This was the worst! Self indulgent, going nowhere, failure to live up to its promise. Hard to finish but I did!
