White Lies and Secret Wishes

White Lies and Secret Wishes

What happens when what you wish for is only half the story…?

When three strangers meet at a funeral, their lives and wishes intersect. Death has a funny way of showing you what you really want out of life… or so they say, anyway.

Jo wants to get her business back on track and conquer her fear of heights. Or at least that’s what she’ll say when asked. A little after thirty and flirty, she has things to prove and finding love can definitely wait…

Sarah has everything she ever wanted, a gorgeous baby and the perfect job. She just needs to get that promotion and then all those missed bath times will be worth it. So she says, anyway. But she can’t stop to think about it for too long or she might drop something…

All Carrie wants is to look good in that all-important summer accessory, a bikini. So she has always said, anyway. But it’s not the only weight she’s carrying, as dark secrets from her past are threatening to surface…

So the three unlikely new friends set themselves a deadline to get their lives in order; juggling men, babies and bikini bottoms along the way. There’s nothing to stop them from achieving their dreams – except those little white lies we all tell…
