Library Journal Review

Keyes portrays three distinctly individual women in an engaging, convoluted tale of love, revenge, loss, and the various sides of publishing. Gemma Hogan was once best friends with surprise best-selling author Lily Wright, who stole her boyfriend, and is represented by transplanted New York City cop-turned-literary agent Jojo Harvey. The former friends become competing writers as Keyes creates a roller coaster ride of their love lives and literary fortunes, treating the ups and downs with humor, imaginative fancy, and honesty. Jojo's sections add inside views of the publishing world as she tries to juggle career, an affair, and her authors' contracts. Terry Donnelly captures quite well Keyes's range of humor, from Gemma's witty despair to Lily's self-deprecating gloom. Recommended.-Joyce Kessel, Villa Maria Coll., Buffalo, NY (c) Copyright 2010.
