“Real Housewives” meets “Billions” by way of Jackie Collins in this glamorous and dark women’s fiction about a woman who returns to her affluent hometown to unravel the secrets of her mother’s death and finds her own life in danger the closer she gets to the horrifying truth.

THE STORY: Kira's back in her affluent hometown for the first time in years and determined to unravel the secrets of her mother's death--hidden in the unpublished memoir she left behind--even if it kills her....

After her troublemaker mother’s mysterious death, Kira fled her wealthy Texas town and never looked back. Now, decades later, Kira is invited to an old frenemy’s vow renewal celebration Though she is reluctant to go, there are things pulling her home. . . like chilled wine and days spent by the pool . . . like her sexy teenage crush, Jack. But more important are the urgent texts from her grandmother, who says she has something to give Kira. Something related to her mother’s death, something that make it look an awful lot like murder.

When her grandmother gives Kira a memoir that her mother had been working on before she died, Kira is drawn into the past and all the sizzling secrets that come along with it. With few allies left in her gossipy country-club town, Kira turns to Jack for help. As she gets closer to what—and who—might have brought about her mother’s end, it becomes clear

that someone wants the past to stay buried. 

Read My Review: May's novel My Summer Darlings.

I have read May's The Hunting Wives and loved it (review to come).

May has a gift for writing small-town scandal that shocks and thrills. Her flawed, nuanced characters shape A LIKEABLE WOMAN into a juicy page-turner that also stays rooted in its eye-opening observation of what it costs to be a “likeable woman.” May is a wildly acclaimed author beloved by bestselling thriller writers like Andrea Bartz, Caroline Kepnes, Riley Sager, Chandler Baker, Simone St. James, A. J. Finn, Samantha Downing, Liv Constantine, and more. May’s last novel, The Hunting Wives, received national media attention from places like E! Online, PopSugar, The Skimm, Parade, and Bustle, and starred reviews from Publishers Weekly and Library Journal.
