Summary

Wallflower Cate Cabot has always been content to keep the world at arms’ length, particularly from behind the register at the upscale Floridian boutique where she’s worked for the last nine years. Her days are filled with old-moneyed locals and nouveau-riche tourists, most of them paying her no mind as she rings up their lavish hauls.

Until Odessa DuVernay.

At first glance, she’s just another picture-perfect Palm Shores trophy wife - until she proves herself personable, humble, and unassuming. She even goes so far as to take a genuine interest in Cate, inviting her for lunch dates, matinees, and girl talk - a refreshing change of pace for the woman who never quite mastered the art of making (and keeping) friends. 

But what begins as an unlikely friendship detours into the unthinkable when Odessa leaves Cate a panicked voicemail asking to meet - and then ghosts her. And worse - when Cate attempts to find her, it’s as if the enigmatic Mrs. DuVernay never existed at all....

Consumed, Cate refuses to stop searching. But the truth won’t come easy.

In fact, it just might cost her everything.

The book is 40 minutes shorter than it shows

NO SPOILERS! This book could have been great but instead it was a total disappointment. The characters never evolve and I felt beyond unsatisfied when it was done and to top it off, the book ended with 45 minutes left. It ends up being a sample of another book. So the actual story is about 6.5 hours.

The only thing noteworthy was the narrator, she did a great job.

ok book

Decent little book that you dont have to pay a lot of attention to. Nothing deep, NO real character development. It did keep my attention decently.

DO NOT BOTHER!!

Complete waste of time and money. You keep waiting for something to happen and it gets worse instead of better.

I think it will be when I read it

I got lost between the help and the girl working at the store...same person? different people? I gave up it wasn't bad I just got lost or missed something.

Not the quality I've come to expect from author.

The narrator did a very good job bringing the novel to life but I'm not completely certain how I feel about this novel. It was very slow pace and though it started to get interesting, the pace never picked up. Once I realized what was going on, I expected something big to take place but it never did. This title never really left the ground for me, which is sad because I really enjoy this author's other titles. Unfortunately, this one really missed its mark.
