March 2009 Book of the Month.
As with her first novel, His Other Lover, this is chic-lit with a dark twist. It’s about what happens when friendship turns sour. She’s very good at putting a thumb on a bruise and pushing until it hurts.
Alice's life has become a bit boring lately. Her friends are busy getting married and having babies, but she's not ready for those changes in her own life - not even sure she still loves her boyfriend. Then she meets Gretchen. A brand new, fun and unencumbered friend. Gretchen knows how to have a good time and she also has a totally gorgeous brother. Before she knows it, Alice has been swept up into her new best friend's world. But Gretchen has a dark secret. Will Alice learn the truth before she throws her old life away?
