-Laura Cavendish is well-off, elitist, and distanced from her philandering husband. Her whole world revolves around her grown son, Daniel. When Daniel announces that he has a new love in his life--a gorgeous and ambitious woman named Cherry--Laura can't wait to meet her, if only to size her up. Not surprisingly, Laura doesn't think much of her son's new catch. A psychological roller-coaster ensues as two devious, unlikable women fight for Daniel's attention. The writing jumps from one point of view to another at a moment's notice, often within the same scene. The head-hopping narrative can be unnecessarily distracting as the reader is volleyed back and forth. VERDICT Despite its flaws, this debut novel will appeal to fans of fast-paced psychological thrillers led by deliciously vile female characters.

This book has great pacing and lures the reader right into to a quirky, gripping story about an ambitious girl who finds herself at odds with her successful boyfriend's controlling mother. This novel has a steady undertone of wry humor even as the characters start to commit unforgivable acts. The solid pacing and plot coupled with funny, flawed characters makes it worth the read!
