Summary

From the #1 bestselling author of Something from Tiffany's comes another unputdownable book club story, soon to be a major motion picture from Reese Witherspoon's Hello Sunshine.

Truth can be stranger than fiction.

Eve knows what she wants. After nine good years and two kids together, it's about time Liam made an honest woman of her.

Eve's sister Sam knows more than she should. She's always thought Eve was too good for Liam. And when she learns the truth about his numerous business trips abroad, her suspicions are confirmed.

Brooke, literally a world away, knows nothing. Until one day, a mysterious delivery arrives and promises to change her life forever.

Three women whose lives are so very different they couldn't possibly have anything in common...could they?

F is for fabulous!!!

This is the first book I have read by this author. It most certainly won’t be the last! At first I was a little confused and I had to rewind and pay more attention. I’m so glad I did! Otherwise, I would’ve missed out on a fabulous book! The plot was just enough of twist and unexpected turns to keep me interested until the very end. All the characters were well developed. Some of them you could like and then there were a few that you didn’t like. That’s what makes a great book! Do you like all the characters in this particular type of book would have really ruined it for me. I’ll think you’re taking too much time to read the reviews and you need to just click the link to buy the book! You won’t regret it!

Love the twists that Melissa always gives us!

I have recently discovered Melissa Hill and I can't get enough of her! I also enjoy Orlagh Cassidy's narrations. I wonder if you will be able to predict the twist. 🙂 Enjoy this book, I have enjoyed every one of Melissa's so far.
