This is an earlier version of this novel was published under the title a serpentine affair. The addictive new novel from Tina Seskis, author of One Step Too Far. It had always been the six of us. Since we met at university twenty-five years ago, we'd faced everything together. Break-ups and marriages, motherhood and death. We were closer than sisters; the edges of our lives bled into each other. But that was before the night of the reunion. The night of exposed secrets and jagged accusations. The night when everything changed. And then we were five. Praise for Tina Seskis: "A gripping thriller that will delight fans of the unexpected twist ending." (Grazia). "Taut, compelling...a storming read." (The Bookseller Books of the Year 2013). "A remarkably good thriller...Open at page one and you will be in the safe hands of a brilliant new girl on the block." (hive.co.uk). "One Step Too Far is a genius tale with a twist." (Stylist). Tina Seskis grew up in Hampshire, and worked for more than twenty years in marketing and advertising before turning her hand to writing. Her first novel, One Step Too Far was published in 2013, where it became an instant bestseller with over 100,000 copies sold in just four months. The rights have since sold to fifteen publishers worldwide. Tina lives in North London with her husband and son, where she writes full-time. When We Were Friends is her second novel.
