Sophia and Tyler are lifelong friends. But nothing else. Sophia's father, long separated from Sophia's mother, is Anthony Avano, high-living head of sales for Giambelli. Anthony lives a bit too high, and his coldly calculating mistress/girlfriend/fiancee sees to it that he treats her in the way she wishes to become accustomed. And then, in one unanticipated stroke, La Signore throws many too-comfortable lives into chaos as she announces a reorganization of the entire upper echelon of Giambelli.
Okay, that's the back story and the first third of the novel. Read the rest. If you're into this kind of richly-detailed, sprawling fiction, this is the perfect weekend read. A 5.
