This story was so fun. I was captivated by the hilarious plot and the heartwarming characters!

Cricket owns an antique store filled with fabulous knickknacks, furniture, and vintage apparel. When she overhears two gossips discussing her husband’s cheating ways, she’s devastated. She needs to find proof of this on her own, and she enlists the help of her employee, Ruby. The two take off on a hilarious journey that includes revenge, friendship, and self-discovery.

Ruby and Cricket are such compelling characters. They are both complex and different, and yet they complement each other in the best ways. The situations that they get into create moments that will make you laugh, and yet, you feel for the two of them with their individual issues. Their character growth throughout the story is wonderful, and you can’t help but love the two of them!

I would recommend this for anyone that enjoys stories of friendship in a comedic setting!

An exhilarating novel about fast friends and fashionable revenge by Liz Talley, the USA Today bestselling author of Adulting.

Antique-store owner Cricket Crosby’s life is turned upside down when she discovers that the rumors of her husband’s affair aren’t just leisurely southern gossip. Her plan: hire an investigator; find an attorney; enlist the help of her new assistant, Ruby; and make her husband pay.

Ruby knows how quickly everything changes. After a dicey past, she’s determined to forge a new future by working for Cricket and reinventing herself as a designer, deconstructing vintage haute couture. If anybody can help mend a few tears in Cricket’s life, she can.

But turns out Cricket’s life isn’t just a little torn. It’s wrinkled, stained, and falling apart at the seams. With Ruby and her ragtag relatives—a soused PI and a hunky tow truck driver—Cricket is sleuthing her way to the truth, no matter how dangerous it gets.

Sure, Cricket’s life isn’t what she imagined. But she’s embracing change and figuring out what she really wants. And that’s kind of fabulous.
