HARPERCOLL

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?

Love this author! The way she develops her characters to details, it's inevitable to dive into the story, and to want to find out the faith for each of them. Yes, this novel produced to a movie would be a success...Can't wait.

Yes, we all have something to hide, and this book explores what four women have to hide. At first you don't really see any connection but as the author switches from Petra in London to Lorrie in the USA, Bev in Africa and Li Jing in China we catch more and more glimmers of the "three degrees of separation". The wrap up almost caught me unawares. About the only problem for me was the rather skimpy parts for Lorrie and Li Jing. I would have liked to know more about them, but since their story was quite peripheral to that of Petra and Bev I can understand why they got less page time. I can see this novel being made in to a movie that would do well.
