Opulence. Sex. Betrayal … Sometimes friendship can be deadly.
Meet the women of Buckhead—a place of expensive cars, huge houses, and competitive friendships.
Shannon was once the queen bee of Buckhead. But she’s been unceremoniously dumped by Bryce, her politician husband. When Bryce replaces her with a much younger woman, Shannon sets out to take revenge …
Crystal has stepped into Shannon’s old shoes. A young, innocent Texan girl, she simply has no idea what she’s up against …
Olivia has waited years to take Shannon’s crown as the unofficial queen of Buckhead. Finally, her moment has come. But to take her rightful place, she will need to use every backstabbing, manipulative, underhand trick in the book …
Jenny owns Glow, the most exclusive salon in town. Jenny knows all her clients’ secrets and darkest desires. But will she ever tell?
Who amongst these women will be clever enough to survive Buckhead—and who will wind up dead? They say that friendships can be complex, but no one said it could ever be this deadly.
A group of five women use secrets and lies to stay on top in their social circle. The relationships between these rich, competitive, and gossipy women are complex. With so many secrets and lies, it eventually leads to a murder.
One of Us is Dead is told using alternating points of view and an alternating timeline. The points of view are from five women – Jenny, Olivia, Karen, Crystal, and Shannon. The women are nosy, manipulative, and not very likable. However, that makes for an entertaining cast of characters. The timeline alternates between before the murder and after the murder.
A fun vacation read! One of Us is Dead is full of drama, chaos, and twists.
