A murder...A tragic accident...or just parents behaving badly?
The story deals with ex-husbands and second wives, mothers and daughters, schoolyard scandal, and little lies that can become dangerous.
The main protagonists are Madeline, Celeste, and Jane. Madeline is outspoken, funny, passionate, and a force to be reckoned with.
Celeste is rich and beautiful, the kind of woman who makes people stop and stare, but she is hiding a dark secret behind the facade of perfection.
New to town, single mum Jane is running away from a mysterious past with her son, Ziggy. She is younger than the others and harbours a great deal of sadness.
