What to expect

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Foursome by Jane Fallon, read by Tracy-Ann Oberman.

Rebecca, Daniel, Alex and Isabel have been best friends since university. Rebecca married Daniel, Alex married Isabel and, for twenty years, they have been inseparable. But all that is about to change...

When Alex walks out on Isabel, Rebecca thinks things can't get any worse. But then she finds out the reason why and she's left harbouring a secret she'd rather forget...

And there's more upheaval to come in Rebecca's life as her emaciated, neurotic, self-obsessed colleague, Lorna - her arch nemesis at work - suddenly becomes a regular feature in her social life.

Rebecca's once-happy foursome is now a distant memory and with hearts broken and friendships fractured, it seems that change is never a good thing. Or is it?

Listen to a sample

Hardcore Jane Fallon fans can breathe a sigh of relief that she's penned yet another juicy novel ... this friend-cestuous love quadrangle might leave you a bit dizzy- from turning the pages so quickly!

Now

This witty, grown up and well observed story about marriage, friendship and office politics is absolutely brilliant.

Closer!

Witty, well observed and free from chick-lit clich├ęs, Foursome will have loved-up couples everywhere questioning just how close they really are.

Heat

It's gripping stuff... it's no surprise that her (Fallon's) characterisation is spot-on, or that her plots are intricate and involved. This is a great, intelligent read and I can't recommend it highly enough.
