Genre: Mystery/Thriller

Synopsis:

Meet the women of Buckhead–a place of expensive cars, huge houses, and competitive friendships.

Shannon was once the queen bee of Buckhead. But she’s been unceremoniously dumped by Bryce, her politician husband. When Bryce replaces her with a much younger woman, Shannon sets out to take revenge …

Crystal has stepped into Shannon’s old shoes. A young, innocent Texan girl, she simply has no idea what she’s up against …

Olivia has waited years to take Shannon’s crown as the unofficial queen of Buckhead. Finally, her moment has come. But to take her rightful place, she will need to use every backstabbing, manipulative, underhand trick in the book …

Jenny owns Glow, the most exclusive salon in town. Jenny knows all her clients’ secrets and darkest desires. But will she ever tell?

Who amongst these women will be clever enough to survive Buckhead–and who will wind up dead? They say that friendships can be complex, but no one said it could ever be this deadly.

Review:

As the weather (hopefully) gets a little warmer and we all start to find ourselves in the mood for a vacation/beachy type of read allow me to introduce you to one of the juiciest reads I’ve found lately! This one was pure fun, totally brain candy think Real Housewives but make it darker and cattier and that’s this book. It did take me a few chapters to settle into things and keep all the women straight, they seemed interchangeable at first 😂 but once I figured it out I was IN. Rich people behaving badly and hiding all sorts of terrible secrets is my catnip and this delivered in a big way. These women are total disasters, mean girls doesn’t even begin to describe how awful they behave and I couldn’t get enough. You know someone ends up dead but you don’t know who until they very end and the ride to the truth was such wickedly delicious fun. I really thought I had it all figured out, I was paying close attention to the gossip and chatter about everyone’s lives and secrets the whole time but I will admit the ending got me pretty good! Definitely recommended as an entertaining, addictive, campy and soapy type of read that you should pick up when you want something over the top and outrageous.

Overall rating: 4/5

Thanks to the publisher for my review copy.
