Three years after seeing her first love, Patrick, quite by chance in London, Celine’s ten-year marriage to Mike is over. She is running her own business, a professional matchmaking service called The Love Market, in Northern England, and coping with the unanticipated heartbreak of a marriage ending – not to mention her quirky twelve-year-old daughter who blames her for the split.
Then, out of the blue, Patrick emails. Celine is tempted to find out if all the old feelings can still possibly be there, but then Mike has an unusual proposition for her. One that forces her to question whether a divorce really means it’s over.

Jill and Rob are happily married and still very much in love. Then everything changes when they discover that Rob is infertile. Having children has never been the be all and end all for Jill. Yet, admittedly, a tiny part of her now wants what she can’t have. But more than craving the impossible, Jill just wants her marriage back to the way it was. But Rob has taken the news badly. He won’t touch her. They never have sex anymore. And worse still, he won’t talk about it.
Frustrated and unsure what to do, Jill is drawn into being an unwitting ‘ear’ for her best friend Leigh who is having a steamy extra-marital affair. Married to a man who is eager to please but fails to satisfy, Leigh has decided that life is too short to put her own happiness last. She has given her affair an expiry date: six weeks and then she will end it.

But are things ever what they seem?
Does life ever go according to plan?
How well do we ever know our husbands, our best friends, or even ourselves?
Jill is about to find out when she faces infidelity and the truth head on…
