Ready for a fresh start, Allison Parker moves back to her hometown in the suburbs of New York. Although she once savored the dynamic pace of city life, it sadly lost its allure after her husband's untimely death. Now, ready to focus on her art career and accompanied by her ten-year-old son, Logan, Allison doesn't anticipate that her past will resurface. When the wife of her husband's best friend from summer camp takes her under her wing, though, things begin to spin out of control.
At one time, Charlotte Crane thought she had it all-a devoted husband, a beautiful little girl, and enough financial security to never have to worry. But behind her "perfect" facade lie a strained marriage and a fractured relationship with her sister. When "new girl" Allison arrives in Wincourt, Charlotte welcomes the chance to build a friendship. Before long, Charlotte begins to see her life through Allison's eyes, and the cracks in her seemingly flawless existence become impossible to ignore. The emerging friendship between the two women appears to be just the antidote both of them so desperately need . . . until everything falls apart.
