Publisher's Summary

Family secrets may shape us all, but it's the rich, complicated layers of friendship that can save us.
Cate, Renee, and Abby have come to New York for very different reasons, and in a bustling city of millions, they are linked together through circumstance and chance.
Cate has just been named the features editor of Gloss, a high-end lifestyle magazine. It's a professional coup, but her new job comes with more complications than Cate ever anticipated.
Her roommate Renee will do anything to nab the plum job of beauty editor at Gloss. But snide comments about Renee's weight send her into an emotional tailspin. Soon she is taking black market diet pills - despite the racing heartbeat and trembling hands that signal she's heading for real danger.
Then there's Abby, whom they take in as a third roommate. Once a joyful graduate student working as a nanny part time, she abruptly fled a seemingly happy life in the D.C. suburbs. No one knows what shattered Abby - or why she left everything she once loved behind.
Pekkanen's most compelling, true-to-life novel yet tells the story of three very different women as they navigate the complications of careers and love - and find the lifeline they need in each other.

Good read!

This was a last minute purchase since nothing else was sparking my interest. Nice easy read. Very interesting. This author might turn out to be one of my favs.

Felt like a chore, easily distractible, glad I’m finally finished

No major climax. Slow and steady. Too many characters but not enough to become attached to any of them enough to care what would happen next. Disappointed in this story as I came to it directly from enjoying another of Sarah’s books which was remarkable and narrated wonderfully as well.
I’m going to move on to another one of her books in the hopes it was just my personal opinion on this particular story and not a normal type of story for the author. Fingers crossed.
