A compelling tale of betrayal and lies, deception and ambition, Maribelle’s Shadow is a memorable novel about what lurks beneath family loyalty.

The only thing that spreads faster than gossip in Palm Beach is news of a mysterious death.

Maribelle Walker deserves to be envied. As the editorial director of Palm Beach Confidential and with Samuel, her impressive husband, by her side, they are the “It” couple of Palm Beach. Maribelle might have even surpassed her two stunning younger sisters.

But when Samuel unexpectedly dies, suspicion suddenly swirls around the Barrows family and their privileged existence is called into question. The lavish image of prada and prestige their mother Lucinda carefully constructed begins to unravel. Maribelle and her sisters, Caroline and Raleigh, have to face facts: things aren’t always what they seem.

Maribelle's Shadow goes on sale June 27th!
