Pretty Guilty Women

One murder. Four confessions.
Every. Word. A. Lie.

‘Smart, twisty and heartbreaking’ TM LOGAN, author of The Holiday

‘Up there with Big little Lies and Desperate Housewives’ CLAIRE ALLEN, author of Her Name Was Rose

You are cordially invited to the wedding of the year . . .

At the luxurious Serenity Resort on the Californian coast, guests arrive ready to celebrate the Banks wedding. But things are about to go horribly wrong . . .

Ginger is an overworked mother of three who’s barely holding it together.

Lulu is filthy rich with four ex-husbands, and a fifth one on the way.

Emily harbours a dark secret, which she’s become expert at forgetting with a bottle of wine.

Kate is a lawyer with her life in order – except for one little problem that even she can’t fix.

Only 24 hours after they arrive a man is found murdered. Each of these women confess to the crime, insisting they acted alone.

Why did they do this?

Only they know the answer – and they’re not telling.

From the moment I started reading Pretty Guilty Women, I was completely immersed in the gripping, twisty, diffuser-filled world of a posh spa wedding, where four college friends reunite, each with old baggage and new. Sparkling with insight, wine, humor, and a drop of blood, the women in this book leapt off the page and straight into my heart. Pretty Guilty Women is a must read!
Susan Crawford, author of 'The Pocket Wife'
