Rose Parker's husband has been lying. About
everything.


When a conversation with her husband triggers
questions, Rose Parker uncovers alarming answers that shatter her perfect life.
But it is only when she shoves her belongings in her SUV and drives off that
Rose realizes just how far from perfect her life actually was. She has nowhere
to turn.

While debating between distressing sleeping
arrangements–her mother’s house full of questions or a hotel room with too much
solitude–Rose bumps into an acquaintance from her gardening class and allows
bubbly, exuberant Becky to indulge her in a wild night full of whiskey,
weeping, and whispered confidences. Suddenly, Rose has a new friend, a roof
over her head, and two gorgeous men moving her out of her marital home.

As Rose struggles to settle into her new life,
she remains determined to comprehend her past. And with time and distance and
especially wine, comes knowledge. Frank wasn’t the only one lying to her. Rose
was lying to herself.

‘This is simply women's fiction at its best, and I adored every single page… I just couldn't put the book down, I HAD to find out how it ended. Simply brilliant, and an absolute must-read!’ Chick Lit Chloe

Fen works in a bookshop and is devoted to her young son, Connor, but she keeps herself to herself. Haunted by guilt and a terrible secret, Fen lives a life isolated from her family, far from home and too afraid of the past to risk becoming close to anyone. She is constantly looking over her shoulder, knowing that one day the truth will catch up with her. 

Sean, on the other hand, is enjoying a seemingly perfect life. He has a successful career, lives in his dream home and adores his beautiful wife, Belle, and their six-year-old daughter, Amy. That is until the day Belle announces she has found someone else and wants Sean to move out. 

Circumstance throws Fen and Sean together. Slowly their quiet friendship turns into something much deeper and the joy they find in one another eventually gives them the confidence to trust and love again. 

But will the past tear them apart just as they find happiness?

Alyssa Miller is tired of waiting for her next-door neighbor to see her as more than just his best friend. Ready to let off some steam, she heads to Las Vegas for a romance book convention where, if she's lucky, she'll get down and dirty with one of the sexy cover models.

Dillon Alexander doesn't do commitment-especially not where his best friend is concerned. She deserves a man who can give her the world, not damaged goods. But when he realizes Alyssa intends to have a one-night stand on her vacation, he hauls ass after her to make sure he's the one to scratch her itch.

Neither of them expects their explosive chemistry to burn hotter than the lights on the strip, but with a little help from Elvis, Marilyn Monroe, a flamboyant matchmaker, and TSA, what happens in Vegas might not stay in Vegas...

For Franki Amato, life in New Orleans is anything but “The Big Easy.” When she met handsome bank executive Bradley Hartmann, she knew she’d finally found a man she could trust. But she can’t say the same for his sexy new secretary, who is about as trustworthy as Mata Hari and every bit as seductive. Meanwhile, Franki’s best friend and employer, Veronica Maggio, has named her the lead investigator in the murder of a gorgeous cosmetics CEO who was found lying dead in the master bedroom of a historic plantation home. Now the pressure is on Franki to figure out what a bottle of pink lip gloss and the legend of a pink diamond have to do with the bizarre killing. But the plantation is supposedly haunted, and Franki is less than enthusiastic about meeting a ghost. Adding to her stress, her Sicilian grandma is up to her usual meddling antics—this time planning Franki’s engagement to Bradley before he has even popped the question. As Bradley grows distant and plantation employees begin dropping like Southern belles during a sweltering summer, Franki turns to a psychic with a phobia of ghosts to solve the mysterious murders and her own relationship fears.
