Description of the book
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER HAPPILY EVER AFTER?If you loved reading the mesmerising tale of Daisy and Simon's marriage and secrets in the Sunday Times No. 1 bestseller, Lies Lies Lies, don’t miss Lucy, Rose and Connie's story in Young Wives' Tales.
Young Wives' Tales is the stylish, insightful sequel to the bestselling debut, Playing Away. Lucy, Rose and Connie are back in a novel which is every bit as addictive and follows the friends in their new roles as wives, mothers and lovers with plenty of surprises along the way…
Rose thought she had it all, but her perfect life crumbled when her so-called friend seduced her husband and destroyed her marriage. Now Rose is left without any passion, romance or plans for the future…
Lucy believed she finally had her fairy-tale ending, but being the wife isn't half as glamorous as being the mistress. When excitement and thrills give way to more chat about cleaning and the kids, it's not very … her.
They desperately envy Connie: happily married, effortlessly juggling two children and a fulfilling career. Connie has found genuine contentment. Until, that is, a dangerous old flame flickers back into view…
Will she be tempted to play with fire again?
