From the USA Today bestselling author of HERE, HOME, HOPE, and IN THE MIRROR comes a novel of suspense and choices.
Once again, everything isn't what it seems in the suburb of Grandville. ALL THE DIFFERENCE is the story of three women whose lives become entangled by the choices they make and how, ultimately, one of them turns to murder to achieve her goals.
Roommates Laura and Angie couldn't be more different. Laura is a local celebrity, the television anchor who is motivated to move out of small-time media markets and on to the big time, no matter the cost. Meanwhile, Angie, a luckless waitress, spends her time waiting for Mr. Right to save her from temporary jobs and a life spent making bad choices.
On the other side of town, Ellen abandons her life as a successful fundraiser for that of an isolated housewife in the country estate she shares with her husband, whose affairs become increasingly hard to ignore. When the city's gossip columnist, Maddie, and restaurant reviewer, Dixon, become involved in the story, the unlikely duo stir up more than they intended.
With her signature mix of compassion and wit, Kaira Rouda once again takes readers on an entertaining journey into the heart of women's lives in suburbia, this time with a dose of suspense.
"An intriguing cast of characters and an untimely death set the stage for a chick-lit, murder mystery in Rouda's (HERE, HOME, HOPE) latest novel. A trio of strong women form the centerpiece of the absorbing novel. The murder mystery serves as a captivating backdrop to the finely drawn characters, and the twist at the end is a fantastic revelation. It's a nod to Rouda's talent that despite the inherent (and severe) flaws each woman displays, the reader still forms an attachment to each of them. A light, engaging read that keeps readers guessing until the end." ~ Kirkus Reviews
