Product description

Synopsis

What happens when the mistress gets her man? Against the odds, that's what happened to Minty. She stole her best friend Rose's husband Nathan and made him her own. But now that she's got what she wanted - marriage, kids, a family home - she's discovering a few things she didn't bargain on: the cold shoulder from Nathan's other family, her husband's middle age and growing distance...and accepting that first wives don't just go away. What's more, age brings one or two other problems for Minty. Problems that will lead her back to the one person she really doesn't want to face...
