This was an okay book. I pretty much had the crime and instigator figured out about half way through, so it was predictable. A little long to read through, but still a good read.

A good beach read! A bit predictable but the relationship between Sugar and Merilee was well thought out and written. The twist at the end was a surprise.

I found it rather dragged along until about 3/4 of the way into the book. The first part did introduce the characters but I guess I found it to be predictable with the high society character.
I did enjoy the history that was brought in with the life of the 90+ year old woman and the interaction with the main character.

Like all Karen White's books, this one was definitely a page turner. I enjoyed every minute of it and was surprised at the ending.

Better than a "chick book", the author came up with some interesting characters, gave them a little development, and devised an interesting plot. Too bad I figured out the identity of the "mean girl" halfway through the book, instead of at the end.

Karen White's novels keep you turning the pages for more. They are hard to put down once you have read the first couple of chapters and have begun to feel like you personally know her main characters. The depth of her characters can make you feel that way! This particular novel took me on an adventure that I never would have expected. Great read!!!

This book was an absolute delight from start to finish. Karen White knows how to weave a story filled with interesting characters, a distinct setting, and a web of secrets and lies. A fantastic story of second chances, secrets, friendship, love, and a reminder that things aren't always what they seem.
