Beth is a woman in supreme control of all aspects of her life and family, with a stellar career and her house an oasis of calm.
Her closest friend, Megan, is very different; somehow she swims through the chaos of her family with ease, the clutter on the stairs, the cat footprints on the kitchen work space. And while they could not be more different, Beth and Megan have a genuine friendship built on years of laugher, tears and true understanding of each other's strengths and weaknesses. Because that's what friends do, isn't it? But when Beth's daughter reveals a surprising secret, a wedge is driven between Beth and Megan.
What begins as mild recrimination and misunderstanding develops into a full-blown row and then a simmering feud.
As the two women square up to do battle in the London suburbs, there's everything to play for.
All's fair in love and war... With her wisdom, insight and wicked humour, Fanny Blake shines a light on to female friendships, in this delicious tale of two so-called best friends.
