Lee is a single mother, hairdresser, and best friend. On the surface, it seems like she has everything under control. Her best friend Grace is also a single mom and their boys instantly become fast friends. Lee's son Mason requires a lot of patience and special attention and it seems like Lee has forgotten that she has needs of her own. Her friends are always trying to get her to let her guard down and have some fun but she worries so much about being there for Mason that it never seems like the right time.
Lee does start to develop a crush on her son's teacher that could either turn into the real deal or he could just not even be interested. Lee takes a leap of faith and decides to tell Noah how she feels only to have him respond by leaving. She starts feeling like all her old demons are coming to the surface and isn't sure how to stop them. She knows she needs to be able to confide in someone but who? Lee's complicated and dark past have been hidden from everyone in her life and she wants it to stay that way.
Grace loves Lee and just wants her to find some balance in her life. Everyone needs to find some love and happiness, right? Speaking of happiness, Grace has some pretty big news of her own that she wants to share with all her friends and she thinks the upcoming girls getaway is the perfect chance. Will Lee be happy for her or will this be the proverbial straw that broke the camel's back?
I refuse to say anything specific about this book because I don't want to give anything away. I 100% feel like this book is one of the best I've read in years. I had no idea what was going to happen or just how twisted the story was going to get. A true page-turner.
