A NovelBook - 2013
Reclusive movie star Jessica Lessing is finally coming out of hiding--to confront her father, a con man who has been selling her out to the paparazzi for years. On her four-day road trip to Las Vegas, she encounters three unexpected allies--Vivian, a teenager with newborn twins; Lynn, a dog shelter owner living in isolation on a ranch in rural Nevada; and Dana, a fearless ex-military bodyguard wrestling with secrets of her own. As their fates collide, each woman will find a chance at redemption that she never would have thought possible. MacKenzie Bezos's taut prose, tough characters, and nuanced insights give this novel a complexity that few thrillers can match.
