Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "Three lifelong friends plus a dangerous, sexy new stranger in town add up to a scorching summer of manipulation, obsession, and murder, from the acclaimed author of The Hunting Wives. A woman in the forest thinks she's going to die. I know he's coming back for me. Jen Miller, Kittie Spears, and Cynthia Nichols have been friends since childhood. Now approaching forty, their lives have changed, but their insular East Texas town has not. They stay sane by drinking wine in the afternoons, dishing about other women in the neighborhood, and bonding over the heartache of raising ungrateful teens and their own encroaching middle age. Then Will Harding comes to town, moving into one of the neighborhood's grandest homes. Mysterious and charming, he seems like the answer to each woman's prayers. He's a source of fascination for Jen, Kittie, and Cynthia, but none of them are ready for the way Will disrupts their lives. As Will grows closer with each of the women, their fascination twists into obsession, threatening their friendships with each other and their families. When he abruptly pulls away, each woman scrambles to discover the source of his affection. What they'll uncover is far more sinister and deadly than any of them could have ever imagined"--

    Broke and recently divorced, Jen has returned to her hometown of Cedartown, Texas, in part to reconnect with childhood friends Cynthia and Kittie, who seemingly lead perfect lives with their husbands, children, and great wealth. However, when handsome, mysterious Will Harding rolls into town in his vintage truck, all three women are attracted to him to the point of obsession. He identifies each one's weak point and begins different types of relationships with each, manipulating while mesmerizing them and eventually leading his prey to betray one another and their families. After a shocking opening set in the present, the story unfolds in short chapters set in the recent past and alternating between the women's points of view. Suspicion, jealousy, and anger erupt among the three friends as Will toys with their feelings in this dark tale of psychological suspense that will keep readers involved until it ends with a final twist and a violent confrontation.
