About the Book:
Opulence. Sex. Betrayal … Sometimes friendship can be deadly.
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.
This book started off as pure fun, with over the top, self-centered characters that reminded me more of Knot’s Landing (anyone remember?) than any of the Real Housewives.
The audiobook was very entertaining, with 5 different narrators voicing the characters of Jenny, Olivia, Shannon, Crystal and Karen. All of the narrators were outstanding! There was never any confusion about which character was speaking.
One of these ladies is dead and we don’t find out until the very last part of the book which one it is. Except for Jenny, the salon owner, all of them are vain, selfish women who bring new meaning to the term nouveau riche. I thought the plot was very silly but yet it was still interesting! Buckhead could have been any suburb, there was no context or background to the setting, but that was also okay.
What started as a light read turned dark with a late plot development that could be triggering for some, and was resolved in a very unrealistic and one-dimensional way. I applaud the narrators for bringing these silly characters to life, they were the best part of the story!
