From the New York
Times bestselling author of such beloved novels as Jemima J., The Beach House,
and Another Piece of My Heart comes
an enthralling and emotional story about how much we really understand the
temptations that can threaten even the most idyllic of relationships.
Gabby and Elliott have been happily married for eighteen
years. They have two teenaged daughters. They have built a life together.
Forty-three-year-old Gabby is the last person to have an affair. She can’t
relate to the way her friends desperately try to cling to the beauty and allure
of their younger years. And yet, she too knows her youth is quickly slipping
away. She could never imagine how good it would feel to have a handsome younger
man show interest in her—until the night it happens. Matt makes Gabby feel
sparkling, fascinating, alive—something she hasn’t felt in years. What begins
as a long-distance friendship soon develops into an emotional affair as Gabby
discovers her limits and boundaries are not where she expects them to be.
Intoxicated, Gabby has no choice but to step ever deeper into the allure of
attraction and attention, never foreseeing the life-changing consequences that
lie ahead. If she makes one wrong move she could lose everything—and find out
what really matters most.
A heartfelt and complex story, Tempting Fate will have readers gripped until they reach the very
last page, and thinking about the characters long after they put the book down. Download and start listening now!
