The Wilde sisters dove headfirst into this world on fire with life and expectation. With hair black as midnight and eyes blazing blue, they grow into truly irresistible women. But as well as being blessed with beauty and determination, the Wilde sisters are cursed with equal tastes for mischief and bad men. And both of these appetites always lead to trouble. Love either lifts a woman up or drags her down. When a Wilde woman dies, they don’t have to dig a hole. On Black Friday in Five Points, Tennessee, Pearl Wilde finds her sister, Kat, in the barn wearing both her favorite shoes and her fiancé. As quick to fury as she is to passion, Pearl leaves town immediately. She returns five years later a sophisticated femme fatale, with her claws sharpened like stainless steel and a demeanor so cool that the townspeople can no longer tell if she even has sweat glands. Slowly and deliberately, Pearl begins her revenge on Kat by captivating all the men of Five Points, but all the while never forgetting the one man who had the power to break her heart.

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Michelle | 1/10/2014

    " OMG hated this book!!!!!! Dumb, stupid, poorly written. It had a good idea: two sisters in a bitter fight, one goes away and comes back rich and vengeful, however...I won't waste any more words reviewing this terrible book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lana Luke | 12/26/2013

    " I am enjoying this book. It takes place in the south during the depression. It is filled with great characters and has a fun story line. If you don't mind boot legged whiskey and whore houses, this is a great book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jen | 12/2/2013

    " This is one of the best books I have ever read. Not only was it a journey through the South in the '20s, the book had insights into moonshining, bootlegging, and high-end prostitution. This novel was very well-written and wove a sultry love story between two couples. Worth reading! "

    " Delightful! Laugh outloud funny at times. Would make a wonderful film if cast well. The book will make you smile and you will wish it wouldn't end! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mom | 12/1/2013

    " I grabbed this book by chance and didn't really expect much from it. Pleasantly surprised that is was a slightly off-kilter look at the Depression era South. All the characters were different and entertaining. It started out as a wide-flung affair that came back together nicely at the end. "
