Synopsis

Can one decision change everything? I couldn’t believe that Bec would, after all these years, bring the whole thing up so…casually. Bec and Kate are sisters, but they couldn’t be less alike. Bec lives the domestic dream with her surgeon husband Stuart and three perfect children. So why is she so attracted to free-spirited Ryan? Kate’s life is hardly a dream. But when she meets Adam – tall, kind, funny – things start looking up. Until she finds out he’s been keeping secrets from her. Then there is the incident both sisters are desperate to ignore… Will they discover that some mistakes can’t be put right? For fans of Liane Moriarty and Marian Keyes comes a tantalising, suspenseful read that will have you addictively turning the pages...
