Review
Carley discovers that one of her best friends is having an affair with the husband of another best friend, Vanessa. Her own husband is withdrawn after financial reversals, and so at precisely the wrong moment she gives in to the embrace of a hunky carpenter she's hired. That night, the police arrive to tell Carley that her husband died in a hotel—where he had gone with Vanessa. And then Vanessa comes begging for help. This latest from the popular Thayer should make good beach reading. --Barbara Hoffert (Reviewed January 1, 2011) (Library Journal, vol 136, issue 1, p63)
