Thinking she will get the scoop of a lifetime, Kat meets this stranger and pays a terrible price. This moment in her life has Kat obsessing about finding Meg and making her pay. When she finally meets and befriends Meg, things do not turn out the way she expected and she comes to understand Meg's real motivation in conning these men out of their money.
This book was not what I expected. I loved all of the back and forth with the storylines and the ways in which the two characters interacted. This was a quick enjoyable read that I would suggest to anyone who wanted an exciting thriller without a lot of drama. This is Julie Clark's most recent book but I am definitely looking forward to reading her backlist.
