Synopsis from Goodreads: Two women. Many aliases.


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.


My Review: This was such a great book and a fantastic example of the anti-heroine done really really well. I have always loved the conman stories and this one sucked me right in. The story is told from both the con artist and a journalist trying to get a big story. It was so fascinating to watch both stories evolve. I really enjoyed this one and highly recommend it.
