Summary

A New Town
Clairmont, Texas is home to some of the South’s most wealthy and established families. When Emily Page and her husband Mike move there from New York City, so Mike can become the new sheriff, they believe that it’s a place where they can build a new life for themselves.

A New Start
Pregnant Emily is soon invited to a prestigious lunch hosted by local doyenne Caroline Warwick. There she meets Clairmont’s rich housewives, but soon discovers that under the veneer of respectability lies shifting loyalties and dangerous secrets.

A Troubled Past
When Caroline Warwick disappears, Emily wonders if any of the well-bred Southern ladies in Caroline’s circle could have wanted her harmed. What was the hold that Caroline had over them and what was Caroline herself trying to hide?

As Emily begins to search for clues about Caroline’s disappearance, secrets from her own troubled past start to come to light. Have her problems followed her to Clairmont, or is there something more sinister going on closer to home?

Kate Rhodes
Critic Reviews

'Heaberlin expertly spins out a tale of lies and deceit that will keep the reader guessing.'

Publisher's Weekly
Critic Reviews

'Heaberlin's depiction of one tight-knit Texas community is both culturally savvy and politically astute. Her group of rich white women desperate to climb the social ladder is funny as well as sad . . . a carefully wrapped package of Texas soap opera, social and political expose, and well-paced thriller.'
