Strictly Between Us

book | Fiction | 2016
UK & Comm → Penguin (Ed. Louise Moore)

A witty and sharp new novel from bestselling author Jane Fallon.

Tamsin and Michelle have been inseparable since childhood. Even now as adults, they spend all of their time together, along with Patrick, Michelle's doting husband.

But now, Tamsin's brilliant assistant Bea (without whom Tamsin's life would fall apart) has heard a nasty rumour that Patrick is playing away. Determined to uncover the truth, Tamsin devises a honey-trap to test his resolve, using Bea as bait. But she never counted on Bea having her own agenda...

Tamsin struggles to untangle the web of deceit, but Patrick seems to be constantly one step ahead. Can Tamsin reveal the truth to Michelle without ruining everyone's life along the way?

I raced through this beautifully written, thoughtful and exciting story, alternately cringing and cheering as things veer further off-piste after nail-biting moments I defy anyone to predict. I didn’t like it. I loved it.
