From the author of The Fifth Letter comes this compelling story about the uneasy relationships between women, the choices they make, and how their failed attempts to keep their secrets can have devastating consequences in every facet of their lives . . .

When Poppy&;s husband deals her the ultimate betrayal&;leaving her for her best friend&;she&;s hurt beyond words. How is she supposed to pick up the shattered pieces and go on?

Her colleague Annalise thinks Poppy needs to release her pent-up anger. And what better way to do that than vent on social media? With Annalise, Poppy creates a private Facebook group for women, just like her, who have gripes to air. Much to her surprise, the group takes off&;and with its success, she feels an adrenaline rush as she&;s finally back in control. But when someone leaks the group&;s private posts, Poppy&;s confidence quickly deflates in the aftermath of the vicious backlash her Facebook posts have created.

As circumstances slide out of control, Poppy and the women surrounding her must confront the painful truths about their lives and learn the most painful lesson of all&;the secrets they think are protecting them and those they love can have the power to completely unravel their worlds.
