The Junior League of Willow Creek, Texas, is tres exclusive, and its members work hard to keep it that way. Undesirables need not apply. Fredericka Mercedes Hildebrand Ware (Frede to her friends) is a member beyond reproach . . . until her life begins to unravel. When her husband Gordon betrays her, steals her money, and runs off to places unknown, it's something she'd rather keep under wraps. The last thing she needs is to become fodder for the JLWC gossip mill.
And to make matters worse, the only lawyer in town who stands a chance at helping Frede get revenge is Howard Grout, an ambulance-chasing, gold-chain-wearing sleaze who has bought his way into Frede's exclusive neighborhood. With no money to her name, Frede is forced to hire Howard in exchange for a favor: get his tacky, four-inch-stiletto-and-pink-spandex-wearing wife into the Junior League. Linda Francis Lee has written a hysterical novel about the lengths to which one woman goes to bring her cheating husband to justice.
