Booklist Review: "Emily Page and her husband, Michael, have left New York City for Clairmont, Texas, where Michael will be the new chief of police. But Emily's dream of a small-town life with a fresh new start is shattered when she attempts to settle in among a group of wealthy southern women with time on their hands and mischief and mayhem on their minds. When the group's leader, Caroline Warwick, suddenly disappears, the group's web of secrets begins to unravel. Emily's growing involvement in the search for the missing woman brings up memories from her own troubled past, prompting Emily to wonder whether her troubles have followed her to Clairmont and whether they could possibly play a role in Caroline's disappearance. Heaberlin's depiction of one tight-knit Texas community is both culturally savvy and politically astute. Her group of rich white women desperate to climb the social ladder is funny as well as sad when shown alongside the racism that engulfs the town's Hispanic population. A carefully wrapped package of Texas soap opera, social and political expose, and well-paced thriller.--Gladstein, Carol Copyright 2010 Booklist"
