Publisher's Summary

Friendship is a million little moments, but can it survive this one? Three friends embark on a luxury cruise to celebrate their 10-year reunion in this heartfelt story of how long-held secrets can catch up with even the best of friends.

Life was about living, experiencing and emotions. The good and the bad. You had to laugh to cry. You had to love to hurt. You had to jump to fall or fly.

Best friends Abbie, Jess and Ricki are setting sail on a cruise ship, rekindling the excitement of a school excursion they took 10 years earlier to the historic port town of Albany, the oldest city on the stunning turquoise coastline of Western Australia. But are they truly prepared for what this voyage will reveal?

Ricki, a dedicated nurse, harbours a dream she hasn't chased. Is she actually happy or stuck in a rut? Jess, a schoolteacher and single mother to little Ollie, had a tough upbringing but found her way through with the help of her closest male friend, Peter. But Peter has bought an engagement ring and is ready to propose to Ricki.... Abbie had it all: a career, a loving boyfriend and a future, but a visit to the doctor bears scary news. Her world is tumbling down, and she feels adrift at sea.

Secrets Between Friends is a poignant audiobook of romance, family dynamics and friendship. Through her highly relatable, sympathetic characters, beloved Australian storyteller Fiona Palmer writes about issues, experiences and emotions we have all faced while posing the ultimate question: what is really important in this life?

Frustrated

First off, narrator was spot on. The story was frustrating and somewhat predictable. All the female characters had the same annoying personality flaw of can’t tell anyone my problems. While getting pissed when their friend does the same thing ...
The story had several twists, but ended just as I expected it would from chapter 1.
