I received a copy of this book for free, and I leave my review voluntarily.

Julie Clark is the New York Times bestselling author of The Ones We Choose and The Last Flight, which was also a #1 international bestseller and has been translated into more than twenty languages. She lives in Los Angeles with her family and a golden doodle with poor impulse control.

Meg Williams. Maggie Littleton. Melody Wilde. Different names for the same person, depending on the town, depending on the job. She’s a con artist who erases herself to become whoever you need her to be—a college student. A life coach. A real estate agent. Nothing about her is real. She slides alongside you and tells you exactly what you need to hear, and by the time she’s done, you’ve likely lost everything.
Kat Roberts has been waiting ten years for the woman who upended her life to return. And now that she has, Kat is determined to be the one to expose her. But as the two women grow closer, Kat’s long-held assumptions begin to crumble, leaving Kat to wonder who Meg’s true target is.

“Does this worry you? It should.”

Kat has spent her life chasing a story she is convinced will change everything. Meg has spent her life getting revenge. When their paths cross, Kat thinks she can finally get the final pieces of the puzzle. But Meg has one more surprise before she disappears.

This was a modern-day Robin Hood, and I loved it. I could not put this book down. The character development was so beautifully done, and I enjoyed how the story was told.

A nonlinear timeline with alternating narrators, with so many subtle twists along the way. This was a beautifully written and dynamically powerful presentation.

I loved the female empowerment and the idea of making things right. I found everything about this book a win. The writing style was well versed without being wordy.

A home run on all fronts.
