Rumours can change lives . . .

Author Madeline King has a new novel coming out, and it’s got bestseller potential. But Madeline is terrified, because in her desperation to revive her career, she’s done something reckless: revealed the truth behind an actual affair involving her best friend, Grace.

And that’s not the only strain on Madeline and Grace’s friendship. One fateful night, the two women argue, voicing jealousies and resentments that have built for twenty years. Bereft of each other, they get caught in the snares of a mysterious and destructive stranger.

So deliciously addictive that it will be the 'It' beach book of the summer
