Advertising executive Bea knows her worth and expects the best for herself—particularly when it comes to marrying rich. From a young age, Bea’s mother instructed her in the art of seducing men. When Bea sets her sights on the obscenely wealthy Collin Case, she uses all that she’s learned to snare him. Though she quickly gets the proposal she was hoping for, what she craves is the acceptance of Collin’s family and his best friend, Gale Wallace Lester. Gale soon gives Bea a run for her money in a game of cat-and-mouse that pits the women against each other and forces Bea to decide who she really is. Croft’s debut is a fast-paced, tense tale narrated by a self-centered main character who will stop at nothing to achieve her goals. Narrator Carlotta Brentan perfectly captures the sickeningly sweet yet cutting voices of two women with secrets to hide. The intense game of back and forth between the women is nail-biting and will have listeners wondering who is telling the truth and who will win the ultimate prize.
VERDICT An absorbing novel with deliciously unexpected twists and turns. Share with fans of Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl.
