Named a Best Book by USA Today 2019 • People • Wall Street Journal • Time • Entertainment Weekly • Bustle • and many more!
Amy Whey is proud of her ordinary life and the simple pleasures that come with it. Her greatest joy is her family: her devoted professor husband, her spirited fifteen-year-old stepdaughter, her infant son. But Amy’s sweet, uncomplicated life begins to unravel when the mysterious Angelica Roux arrives on her doorstep one book club night.
Sultry and magnetic, Roux keeps the wine flowing and lures them into a game of spilling secrets. Everyone thinks it’s naughty, harmless fun. Only Amy knows better. Something wicked has come her way—a she-devil in a pricey red sports car who seems to know the terrible truth about who she is and what she once did.
When they’re alone, Roux coolly explains exactly what it will cost to keep Amy’s sins private, but Amy cannot give her what she wants. To protect her family and the life she’s built, Amy must try to beat the devil at her own clever game, matching wits with Roux in an escalating war of hidden pasts and unearthed secrets.
