The Secret Affair


4.00 · 1 ratings · Published: Sep 3rd, 2015 {{ book.ratingTitle }}
Sally Palmer has just had her decree absolute delivered—she is no longer married to her husband. As a thirty-something, she wonders how she is going to start her life over again. However, she has a good job, working in Barrington’s department store and a great friend in Roz.

Her boss, Hugh Barrington, is apparently quite dapper and dashing, as Roz so wickedly points out, but Sally doesn’t look at him like that. Hugh has it all: wealth, good job, and the perfect marriage… or so it seems.

One night, they’re watching the home movies of a co-worker, and Roz drinks a little too much in an effort to ease the boredom. Hugh offers to give the two of them a ride home.

After being dropped off, Sally’s ex shows up on her doorstep, drunk and a bit threatening. Hugh returns after Roz sends him to check on Sally. Still in a state of shock, Sally falls into Hugh's arms, but completely misinterprets his offer of financial help. She assumes he's asking her to become his mistress. Hungover and in the cold light of day, Sally feels extremely foolish and decides she can no longer work at Barrington’s.

However, their attraction to one another is now undeniable, and they begin a secret affair. Along the way they meet new friends, uncover long buried secrets, and eventually, circumstances prevent the relationship from being hidden any longer. But is that a bad thing…?

Can Hugh and Sally work things out and find happiness?
