"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
- D. Cottam
Mediocre story, awful reading.
This is not one of Deborah Moggach's best books, but it is o.k. The ending is something of a let-down and left me feeling dissatisfied. The story drags in parts. What really ruined it for me was Josie Lawrence's performance. She reads too fast and with an annoying "breathlessness" to her voice. I also did not like her attempts at difference voices for different characters.
Yes, but not if read by Josie Lawrence.
Almost anyone. Patricia Gallimore is excellent.
Josie Lawrence was so annoying I almost didn't finish this book but I wanted to know how it ended.
