For all fans of Thursdays in the Park, Quartet or Amour.

Can love survive long-term in the twenty-first century? Julie is beginning to doubt it. When her husband of twenty years announces that he is chucking his job to embark on an adult gap year leaving his salary and Julie behind, she puts her marriage under the microscope.

Turning to her friends for comfort and advice, Julie finds that their relationships are falling apart too. Surely they can’t all be innocent victims? Or all bad wives? Is there no such thing as an enduring marriage? Does that twenty-year itch just have to be scratched?

While this emotional maelstrom rages around her, meeting someone new is the last thing on Julie’s mind. Until a chance encounter propels her onto a sexual collision course with a man who spells danger . . .


Praise for THE SECRET LIVES OF SISTERS: 'The story that unfolds reads like a beautifully written memoir . . . so astutely crafted that it is painful to read.'
THE SECRET LIVES OF SISTERS . . . derives its strength from its realism . . . the events and characterisations are highly plausible.

On FIFTY IS NOT A FOUR-LETTER WORD: 'Bridget Jones for grown-ups.'
<i>My Weekly</i>
The novel is fun and frothy and very good
<i>Evening Standard</i>
A witty, involving novel
<i>Easy Living</i>
Funny, perceptive - I absolutely loved it.
Penny Vincenzi
Funny, wise and proof that the perfect heroine doesn't have to be a chardonnay-swilling thirty-something, this made me laugh and weep from start to finish. Linda Kelsey has the knack of making you care about her characters and she deals with huge issues with the lightest touch. I wish I'd written this!
Cathy Kelly
Funny, wise, true and not just for women of fifty!
Wendy Holden
Wise, witty and wonderful.
