Mr & Mrs Max Irving request the company of:

Mrs Fran Friedman, mourning her empty nest, the galloping years and a disastrous haircut.
Mr Saul Friedman, runner of marathons, and increasingly distant husband.
The two Misses Friedman, Pip and Katy, one pining over the man she can't have, the other trying to shake off the man she no longer wants.

At the marriage of their son James, forbidden object of troubling desire. For thirty-six hours of secrets and lies, painted-on-smiles and potential ruin. And drinks, plenty of drinks.

There's nothing like a wedding for stirring up the past. As Fran negotiates her way from Saturday morning to Sunday evening she is forced to confront things she's long thought buried, and to make decisions about the future that will have far-reaching consequences for them all.

Review quote

"You will not sleep or eat or move until you've turned the last page. Utterly gripping" * LISA JEWELL * "A comedy of modern wedding manners that's also gripping, sexy and sad" * Daily Mail * "Gripping from beginning to end." * Prima * "Fast-paced...strong characters and believable relationships. You'll not want to put it down!" * Candis * "Our favourite" * Essentials Magazine * "Thoroughly involving" * Woman & Home * "Dark, compelling and breathtaking, and I read it in a single sitting" * Jenny Colgan * "A gripping undercurrent of forbidden love throughout: the book is scandalous and entertaining" * The Lady * "I lost myself so completely in Fran and her family's woes that I read the whole book in 24 hours rather than the 36 hours it took for everything to unfold. The wedding part was very realistic from the over amorous guests to the women changing into comfy shoes, but this was certainly the most intriguing wedding story I have ever read.
Fast paced and absorbing, I felt like I was one of the guests listening in to something I shouldn't. A very juicy read!" * Novelicious * "READER RECOMMENDED: A cleverly written story, thought-provoking and easy to identify with." * Good Housekeeping *
