The Secrets Sisters Keep
The Devlin sisters rely on each other - but some things are just too painful to share, even when your sisters are your best friends ... Mum-of-four Julie thought that if her family had more money, life would be easier. But now that they've inherited a fortune, her problems are only starting. Lawyer Louise is used to having life go exactly as she wants it to. So accepting that she cannot control everything in her world is beyond her. And former model Sophie can just about cope with getting older - that's until her ex-husband finds a younger model.

Soon, threatening texts are being sent to Emma’s phone. James vehemently denies that he is having an affair. Should Emma trust her husband? Is he cheating on her? Or is he really the victim of an obsessed stalker? Will Emma figure out who it is in time to save her marriage?

Keeping it in the Family
“Niamh, you’re going to get whiplash,” said Pierre, reaching over to hold my hand as I turned back from the door. “I don’t want to miss him when he comes in,” I said, tensely. “Well then maybe you should stand beside it,” said Pierre sighing. I’d been snapping at him all morning and he’d clearly had enough.
