Before I Knew You Before I Knew You Everyone needs a holiday - but who knows where it will lead? Sophie and Andrew are looking for relief from the daily grind - if not each other - so when a friend puts them in touch with William and Beth, newlyweds looking to swap houses for the summer, it seems a solution of sorts. They find themselves in a stylish Connecticut home, a stone's throw from New York, while William and Beth take over their lived-in family house in South London, ideal for spending time with William's teenage sons. The weeks away work an unexpected magic for Sophie, who begins to find a sense of happiness ...but Beth has no such luck and, no longer the centre of William's world, grows increasingly miserable. And so the two marriages - one crushed by the weight of years, one shiny and new - slide into reverse. But who can foreseen the dramatic consequences of their lives, and hearts, intertwining? This innocent holiday might just prove devastating... Penguin 978-0-14-103994-7

The plane remained motionless while its engines roared,
being tested, Sophie hoped, for their ability to perform
with similar conviction once airborne. Peering through
her scratched porthole, she studied the overcast skies of
Heathrow, wondering how the Stapletons would feel,
landing amid such gloom when they had left behind a
heat wave. The entire east coast of America was simmering

celebration.
Sophie had done her best to oblige, rolling her eyes
in a show of happy wonderment, suppressing a strong
desire to remind her husband of the propensity of his
pale, gingery-blond-haired skin to blister and blotch,
and an even stronger urge to slice through his newspaper
with her toast knife and say she did not wish to holiday
anywhere that year, let alone swap houses with some
people from Connecticut for four weeks, three of
which would be without their children. But Andrew
had looked so pleased – so relieved – that she had held
the smile in place, clung to it much as she might have
a cli, edge in the dark, telling herself that if he couldn’t

too.

York, about the whole madcap scheme. It had been the
brainchild of his old friend and erstwhile best man,

East Side with his wife Ann.
