Description
Bridesmaids meets Big Little Lies in a novel told from the alternating perspectives of two women who define the term frenemies—from New York Times bestselling author Jen Lancaster.
Jacqueline Jordan knows conflict. A fearless journalist, she’s spent the past decade embedded in the world’s hot spots, writing about the fall of nations and the rise of despots. But if you were to inquire about who topped Jack’s enemy list, she’d not hesitate to answer: Kitty Carricoe.
Kitty reigns supreme over the world of carpools and minivans. A SAHM, she spends her days caring for her dentist husband and three towheaded children, running the PTA, and hiding vegetables in deceptively delicious packed lunches.
Kitty and Jack haven’t a single thing in common—except for Sarabeth Chandler, their mutual bestie. Sarabeth and Jack can be tomboys with the best of them, while Sarabeth can get her girly-girl on with Kitty. In fact, the three of them were college friends until the notorious incident when Jack accidentally hooked up with Kitty’s boyfriend…
Yet both women drop everything and rush to Sarabeth’s side when they get the call that her fabulously wealthy husband has perished in a suspicious plane crash. To solve the mystery surrounding his death, Jack and Kitty must bury the hatchet and hit the road for a trip that just may bring them together—if it doesn’t kill them first.

        Lancaster sets her latest novel in the same territory as her humorous memoirs, the tony North Shore suburbs of Chicago. Kitty and Jacqueline (Jack) are as different as night and dayKitty is a judgmental, pampered homemaker who blogs about her Pinterest-worthy North Shore Nancy life, while tough-as-nails tomboy Jack is a Pulitzer-nominated journalist who covers conflicts in the Middle East. The only thing they can agree on is that they would drop everything to come to the aid of their mutual best friend, Sarabeth. When Sarabeth's wealthy husband disappears in a boating accident, Kitty and Jack suspect foul play and are forced to work together to get to the bottom of things. The narrative shifts from the past (when the three women were college roommates) to the present, and the laughs multiply exponentially, leading to a zany twist ending. But there are moments with real heart as well, such as Jack's backstory of growing up without her mother. Lancaster's fans will snap this up, as will readers who enjoy madcap comedy.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2015, American Library Association.)
