Synopsis: Two women. Many aliases.
Meg Williams. Maggie Littleton. Melody Wilde. Different names for the same person, depending on the town, depending on the job. She’s a con artist who erases herself to become whoever you need her to be―a college student. A life coach. A real estate agent. Nothing about her is real. She slides alongside you and tells you exactly what you need to hear, and by the time she’s done, you’ve likely lost everything.
Kat Roberts has been waiting ten years for the woman who upended her life to return. And now that she has, Kat is determined to be the one to expose her. But as the two women grow closer, Kat’s long-held assumptions begin to crumble, leaving Kat to wonder who Meg’s true target is.
Review: It’s my first Julie Clark novel, but after reading the synopsis and seeing all the great reviews, I couldn’t wait to get into this story.
We follow Meg Williams and Kate Roberts. Meg is back in town to finally get her revenge. But why is that? We’ll find out over the course of the novel. She targets people she’s going to scam, and she’s very good at it. Kate, a journalist, once crossed paths with Meg and it didn’t go so well. Now she’s determined to show Meg’s true face to the world. Pretending to be someone else, she enters Meg’s service to find out what she’s up to. But she never expected to make friends with this woman. What if she’s being manipulated?
I had a great time with this novel. I got caught up in Meg and Kate’s story. It was fun to find out how Meg pulled off all her scams, what she was going to do and how Kate would react to everything that was going on. I couldn’t put the book down until I’d finished it !
