At this point in her life, Marcie Maddox, has firmly established herself as the hot, younger second wife to her successful husband, Jason.
In their posh Savannah community, replete with sumptuous mansions and a country club lifestyle, image is everything. Marcie appears to have it all and she feels that way, most days.
The older, blue blooded women they socialize with have come to accept her and include her in their luncheons and tennis dates, but Marcie will always feel a bit like a second class citizen around them. She can’t help it.
When Jason’s boss, the wealthy, recently widowed, William Radford IV, returns from a trip to London with a much younger, sexy as hell, second wife on his arm, the whole of Savannah society gets thrown for a loop. Marcie especially.
She’s no longer the youngest, or the most supple for that matter. The way Jason devours the new Mrs. Radford, Keisha, with his eyes, makes Marcie’s skin crawl.
Keisha is brazen in a way that would be refreshing if it wasn’t so shocking to their social norms. The way she plays housewife to the old coot, while also being sure to flirt with Marcie’s husband, what exactly is she after?
After Jason asks her to befriend Keisha, Marcie learns a lot more about the girl than she bargained for!
The ladies quickly become two peas in a pod, but their friendship soon threatens everything Marcie has worked so hard for.
Full of secrets, deceptions and a touch of Southern voodoo and superstitions, this book had me flipping the pages at a rate to set my fingers on fire!
I felt this was completely unique, full of unlikable characters and drama fit for daytime programming.
While I had a ton of fun reading this, I can see how it might not work for everyone. I wasn’t completely satisfied with the ending, but things can’t always work out how we would choose.
I will definitely remember this one, that’s for sure.
Thank you so much to the publisher, William Morrow Books, for providing me with a copy to read and review. I appreciate it so much!
