In Sheila O'Flanagan's engrossing new novel, two women form an unlikely friendship as they face up to shocking truths about the men they've loved - and start to make their own decisions about what to do next...

'One of my favourite authors' Marian Keyes

Deira is setting out on the holiday she'd planned with her long-term partner Gavin... only she's on her own. Gavin will not be amused when he finds out she's 'borrowed' his car, but since their brutal break-up Deira's not been acting rationally. Maybe a drive through beautiful France will help her see things differently...

Grace is also travelling alone, each stage of her journey outlined in advance by her late husband. Ken was head of the household when he was alive, and it seems he's still in charge. His last decision was a surprise - could there be more surprises to come? There's only one way to find out, galling though it is to dance again to Ken's tune...

Thrown together by chance, Deira and Grace are soon motoring down the French highways, sharing intriguing stories of their pasts, as they each consider the future...

Praise for Sheila O'Flanagan and her irresistible novels:

'Brilliantly written and with plot twists popping out like Prosecco corks' Woman and Home

'A feel-good story told by a funny and down-to-earth heroine' Woman's Weekly

'If you're seeking an escape of your own, this sunny, evocative story is the perfect place to hide away' S Magazine
