Summary

One little lie was all it took....

The brand-new novel from the global best-selling author of The Devil Wears Prada 

Peyton Marcus is the woman New York wakes up to, anchor of the most-watched morning show in the city. With a husband who adores her and a daughter who’s headed to one of the best Ivy League schools, Peyton Marcus is that woman, and she’s damn good at it....

Skye, her sister, is a stay-at-home mom in Paradise, the idyllic NY suburb that’s home to designer boutiques and people who fly private. She has a knack for helicopter-parenting with the best of them. But she’s not like them. She’s looking for something real and it’s within touching distance....

Max, Peyton’s bright and quirky 17-year-old daughter, is poised to kiss the fancy private school she hates goodbye—and all of its spoiled rich kids—and head off to pursue her dreams in film. She’s waited her entire life for this opportunity....

But suddenly the grass isn’t looking so green. One little lie. That was all it took. Will any of them survive the truth?

Disappointing

I was really looking forward to listening to this book as I am a big fan of the author, however, I was very disappointed. The story was lacking, the characters were dull and it’s seemed to drag on.

Not her best

too many loose ends. It was also a pretty dull story.
Finally, the narrator should not have tried to do an Australian accent

Not exciting as promised in write up

I'm sad I wasted a credit and I can't return it either. I thought the story would start getting going but it's not, very dull. So I've had to stop listening.
