Once upon a time four aspiring authors met at their very first writersâ' conference. Ten years later theyâ're still friends, survivors of the ultra-competitive New York publishing world. Mallory St. James is a workaholic whose bestsellers support a lavish lifestyle. Tanya Mason is a single mother juggling two jobs, two kids, and too many deadlines. Faye Truett is the wife of a famous televangelist and the author of inspirational romances: no one would ever guess her explosive secret. Kendall Aimsâ's once-promising career is on the skidsâ?and so is her marriage. Her sales are dismal, her new editor detests her workâ?and her husband is cheating. Barely able to think, let alone meet her final deadline, Kendall holes up in a mountain cabin to confront a blank page and a blanker future. But her friends wonâ't let her face this trial alone. Together they collaborate on a novel using their own lives as fodder, assuming no one will ever discover the truth behind their words.
No one is more surprised than they are when the book becomes a runaway bestseller. But with success comes scrutiny and scandalâ?as these four best friends suddenly realize how little theyâ've truly known each other.
In this witty and engaging contemporary romance, four best friends team up to try to craft a blockbuster novel that will take the publishing world by storm. When they decide to use their own unusual and amusing everyday experiences as material for the book, they realize they may have struck publishing gold.
