The Saving Graces by Patricia Gaffney

The Saving Graces

Patricia Gaffney

The friendship that four women have sees them through some real dramas. And I do mean serious problems. Get out your boxes of chocolates (and tissues) and look forward to a really good wallow!

Extract

I'd been stupid and naive to think Rudy would keep my secrets from Curtis. Grow up Emma. Husbands and wives tell each other things. Marriage supersedes friendship, even marriage to a prick.
