The name of the game is revenge--no matter the cost--in this emotionally charged thriller reminiscent of The Wife Between Us and The Perfect Nanny. Kerrie O'Malley, jobless and in an unfulfilling relationship, can isolate the singular moment in her life when things veered off course--the night she was irrevocably wronged by someone she looked up to. Eighteen years later, when Kerrie sees the very woman who destroyed her life on television, a fire ignites inside her. The stakes are high. The risks are perilous. But she'll stop at nothing to achieve the retribution she deserves. Jordana Pierson is a gilded New Yorker who appears to have it all: wealth, glamour, a successful and handsome husband, and a thriving wedding concierge business. Her record is spotless. Her business is flourishing. No one knows the truth about her and the dark shadows of her past. No one, that is, except Kerrie. Exploring just how far someone will go for vengeance, Pretty Revenge is a riveting, compulsively readable novel bursting with twists and turns and plenty of suspense.
