Description

"An epic novel that spans a generation" from the New York Times bestselling author of the God and Neighbors series (Library Journal).
As teenagers, best friends Lola Poole and Joan Proctor concocted a scheme to escape their boredom, pass the time between boyfriends—and bring in some money. It all started when they got in the habit of corresponding with lonely, unsuspecting—and generous—older men. In return for their "love letters," the teens were rewarded with checks. The fun only ended when their swindle nearly got them killed. Now they're grown, but they're still longing for every woman's dream of love and excitement. And thanks to online dating and a parade of lovers, they're getting all the sexy fun they missed out on. It's a downright addictive game. But games can't last forever—and someone has to lose . . .

"Engaging, provocative, disconcerting and shocking, as the author shrewdly characterizes the hazards when adults play dangerous games with strangers."—RT Book Reviews
