Meet the women of Buckhead–a place of expensive cars, huge houses, and competitive friendships.

Shannon was once the queen bee of Buckhead. But she’s been unceremoniously dumped by Bryce, her politician husband. When Bryce replaces her with a much younger woman, Shannon sets out to take revenge …

Crystal has stepped into Shannon’s old shoes. A young, innocent Texan girl, she simply has no idea what she’s up against …

Olivia has waited years to take Shannon’s crown as the unofficial queen of Buckhead. Finally, her moment has come. But to take her rightful place, she will need to use every backstabbing, manipulative, underhand trick in the book …

Jenny owns Glow, the most exclusive salon in town. Jenny knows all her clients’ secrets and darkest desires. But will she ever tell?

Who amongst these women will be clever enough to survive Buckhead–and who will wind up dead? They say that friendships can be complex, but no one said it could ever be this deadly.

Review

Thank you to Blackstone, for providing me with a copy of this book, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review!

In the town of Buckhead, the women are rich, catty and competitive. Between the false smiles, barely disguised insults and backstabbing, friendships aren’t all they seem to be. Jenny owns the hottest beauty bar in town, Glow, and she gets to know all her client’s secrets. But when someone ends up dead, will she be able to give the investigating detective enough information to piece together what really went down in Buckhead?

One of Us is Dead was the type of book I walked around reading. It was so addictive I simply didn’t want to put it down.  Like a grown up, cattier version of Pretty Little Liars and Big Little Lies, everyone had their fair share of secrets and lies. I loved the way the story alternated between the events of the past and the present day, with a police interview. Who ended up dead was a secret for almost the entire book and it built such fantastic suspense. 

A fair few of the characters weren’t exactly likeable, but I felt like that fit well with the vibe of the story and provided enough ‘motives’ to keep me guessing who the murderer and murdered characters were. 

This was my first book by this author and I’ll definitely be checking out more!
