Abstract:

As a lifelong resident of an historic community on the rocky coast of Boston's North Shore, Hildy Good knows pretty much everything about everyone. She's a successful real-estate broker, mother and grandmother - and an alcoholic. Her nights have become lonely since her daughters staged an intervention and sent her off to rehab. Now she's in recovery. Feeling alone and unjustly persecuted, Hildy joins forces with Rebecca McCallister, a beautiful young mother and one of the town's wealthy newcomers. Hildy feels like a person of the world again, as she and Rebecca escape their worries with harmless gossip and wine. When eccentric Frank Getchell tries to warn Hildy away from Rebecca, Hildy attempts to protect her friend. But when a cluster of secrets becomes dangerously entwined, this darkly comic novel takes a chilling turn.
