Broken Trust

By Una-Mary Parker

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

A scandalously sinful, unputdownable thriller by bestseller Una-Mary Parker, available in ebook for the first time.

When widower Nick Driver announces that he is getting remarried, his two sons and two daughters are utterly devastated. They find it hard to accept that their beautiful mother, who died tragically only a year ago, can be replaced this quickly, particularly by Philippa who is so young.

Nick wants Philippa to have all that money can buy, but when he decides to sell the family home he has no idea that his new wife will become an unwitting catalyst in a family feud. Nor that the domino effect that follows will cause a deep rift and finally the death of one of them . . .
