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.

      • content: Julia Whelan lends her strong voice and perfectly timed pauses to the character of Jacqueline "Jack" Jordan, a fearless writer whose work embeds her in war-torn cities around the world. Now she's more than a bit anxious at returning home to the Midwest to face her nemesis, Kitty Carricoe. Emily Rankin voices bubbly stay-at-home mom Kitty, whose idea of current events is the latest in PTA gossip and new ways to hide vegetables in baked goods. Jack and Kitty join forces when their mutual friend's husband dies in a suspicious plane crash. The alternating narrations are perfect in this fast-paced novel about friendship, family, and the conflicts that abound from inaccurate assumptions. A.L.C. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine
