They thought he belonged safely in the past. His return threatens everything.

Marta, Carrie and Jane have been friends since they were at school. Now one is bringing up her family, another is desperately trying for children of her own, while the third is focused on her career – and each takes the support of the others as a given.

But when generous Marta bumps into old friend Tom at the height of the Edinburgh festival, she finds he’s an actor out-of-luck. Her kind offer of temporary shelter sets in motion a tsunami of destruction. Marta’s marriage comes under threat. Timid Jane is haunted by the secret she has been hiding since she last saw Tom. And ambitious Carrie finds herself at the mercy of a man who can ruin her career.

Only by pulling together can the friends rid themselves of this menace. But is Tom too clever at sowing mistrust?


Marta, Carrie and Jane have been friends for so long they no longer have any secrets.  That is until Marta runs into an old friend.  That one act of reintroducing the old friend will flip their worlds on end.  Marta’s marriage starts to implode, Jane’s secret weighs on her so much that escape looks promising and Carrie falls back into old ways that turn self destructive.  This one man attempts to tear their worlds apart.  Can the three friends band together to repair their lives or will they let this horrible guy from the past destroy them?

This was a very entertaining read.  The complex relationships and lives of the three friends was both relatable and realistic.  The reader will go on an emotional roller coaster as the three women discover each others secrets.  Jenny Harper does an excellent job illustrating the female friendship.  She also did a phenomenal painting Tom as a real villain.  He was someone you could truly know and have had a relationship with.  If you are looking for a good friend book you will want to pick this up.  The story weaves easily through the three women’s lives, relationships and loves.  This is the perfect book for any woman.
