A collection of four stunning ebooks from the author of the runaway bestseller, THE KASHMIR SHAWL.
OTHER PEOPLE'S MARRIAGES: They were 'the five families' - the pleasant hospitable Frosts, the brash and sexy Cleggs, flirtatious Jimmy Rose and aloof Star, maternal Vicky and reliable Gordon Ransome, Michael Wickham and his perfect wife Marcelle. Old friends, their lives are interwoven in a comfortable pattern, until rich, sophisticated and newly widowed Nina Cort returns. In the course of a year from which none will emerge unscathed, they discover that you can never truly know the fabric of other people's marriages. Perhaps not even of your own...
EVERY WOMAN KNOWS A SECRET: What happens when you fall in love with the one person you shouldn't? In the aftermath of a family tragedy, Jess Arrowsmith is powerless to resist her attraction to Rob, twenty years her junior, and the person she has reason to hate most in the world. As their love affair threatens to blow her family apart, Jess finds herself in a desperate struggle to defuse a crisis that puts at risk all she holds dear...

As Sadie confronts the truth about this family history, her relationship with her son Jack appears to be breaking down and she is intent on saving it. Then the arrival of a fleeting women from her father's past starts a train of events that even Sadie cannot control...
