Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Foursome by Jane Fallon, read by Tracy-Ann Oberman.

Rebecca, Daniel, Alex and Isabel have been best friends since university. Rebecca married Daniel, Alex married Isabel and, for 20 years, they have been inseparable. But all that is about to change....  

When Alex walks out on Isabel, Rebecca thinks things can't get any worse. But then she finds out the reason why and she's left harbouring a secret she'd rather forget....

And there's more upheaval to come in Rebecca's life as her emaciated, neurotic, self-obsessed colleague, Lorna - her arch nemesis at work - suddenly becomes a regular feature in her social life. 

Rebecca's once-happy foursome is now a distant memory and with hearts broken and friendships fractured, it seems that change is never a good thing. Or is it?

Drivel

This is basically a story about a very spoilt, immature and over-indulged woman who doesn’t get on with one of her colleagues. The end.

Enjoyable book, however

Good storyline, however the narrator's accents were terrible especially the Australia (I think it was meant to be).

Easy listen

Easy to listen to. No real meat to the story and I didn’t like the twee ending. I like Jane Fallons books but this one did lack a bit of substance. That said I did enjoy listening to it and would buy her books again.
