About the Book

When secrets are shared they become weapons...

The four central characters are attractive women in their prime: Jacqui, dark, fit and fiery; Hazel, elegant and cultured; Sonia, gauche; Paula, vivacious, magnetic. On the surface they have it all, but beneath the veneer of successful respectability there lurks a totally different story.

Disillusioned and looking for more, their search for sexual fulfilment and adventure leads them on a journey which will change their lives and those of their families for good. They are drawn together by chance, ripped apart by fury.

You will become the fifth member of the group, totally involved in the compelling lives of these women as they reveal secrets, which, when shared, have devastating consequences.

About the Author

Ruth Allen was born in 1955 and brought up in Highgate, North London. After a brief spell abroad in her teens, she settled down to married life with husband Phillip, an interior designer, just up the road in Hampstead, London NW3.

Her long marriage revolved around their three children. Any spare time she filled with her hobbies, time at her local gym and regular Wine Club meetings with female friends and neighbours.

Divorced in 2001, Ruth moved away from London’s suburbia and now lives in a cottage in Cornwall with her new partner, where days are spent walking their dogs along the beach and more recently, writing a conservatory overlooking the stunning coastline.

Ruth’s debut novel Living Lives: Living Lies is drawn from the many hours she spent listening to her friends talk about their lives, loves and in some cases the lies they told to keep their fragile marriages together.
