Once upon a time four aspiring authors met at their very first writers' conference. Ten years later they're still friends, survivors of the ultra-competitive New York publishing world. Mallory St. James is a workaholic whose best sellers 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 Aims' once-promising career is on the skids - and so is her marriage. Her sales are dismal, her new editor detests her work - 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 won'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 best seller. But with success comes scrutiny and scandal...as these four best friends suddenly realize how little they've truly known each other.
"Wax sheds insight on the writer/reader relationship and nurtures this invisible bond throughout. Sure to appeal to fans of women's fiction and aspiring writers." (Library Journal)

this is another one of those "middle of the road" books. Nothing actually bad and not exactly boring, but....not much happens. A group of women that are friends, help one of them out, have problems that each are struggling with individually, get caught for helping the friend, get in a fight and then make up. The End.
At times, I felt that the author just skimmed over each character and didn't make their struggles interesting enough to engage me.
It passed the time, but is not memorable. Narration was probably the best part of the whole experience.
