Enjoyed The Lie? Order Hilary Boyd's gripping next book now. 

A new thought-provoking and emotionally charged novel about marriage and family from the best-selling author of Thursdays in the Park and The Anniversary.

Connie and her GP husband, Devan, have led a charmed life since they married in their 20s. Forty years on they are the couple their whole village envies. Life isn't quite so rosy just now with Devan struggling to adjust to early retirement, but Connie hopes that getting away for a few weeks through her job as a European tour manager will help. 

But on one of her favourite tours, to Lake Como, it is clear one of her guests is falling for her. She resists, but Jared somehow gets under her skin, until she's intoxicated and doing the unthinkable: breaking the marriage vows she's always held so dear. But she tells herself the affair is not serious, it will end when the season does. And Devan will never find out. 

But when Connie returns home, Jared follows. He isn't going to give her up so easily. And as he grows ever more embroiled in her life, Connie begins to wonder if more than her marriage is in danger....
