Using Katharine’s etiquette school, Elegance, Inc., as a front, the trio weave through Frankie’s dark underworld, carrying out contracts, drinking too much wine, and trying not to get each other killed.
Trouble follows the team home when the death of the cruel Fairholm matriarch reveals more than they ever wanted to know about their family. As the funeral preparations play out, the trio begin to realize there is much more to their employer than meets the eye and their family connections run deeper than they ever imagined.
Interview with Elizabeth Vescio
*I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review*
I wasn't sure how I would react to this book at first...rich girl turn contract killer. I wasn't sure how relatable the characters would be. Once I started reading this book though, all my concerns flew right out the window. This book kept me wanting more and drew me in quicker than I would have expected.
I liked all the flashbacks, which happen more in the first half of the book. This book reads like a friend is telling you their crazy life story. Some parts are funny, with the characters playing off each other well. I liked this approach to a novel and it helped me relate to these characters I might not have otherwise.
You can't go wrong with this book. It's intense, yet witty, which a bit of crazy thrown in as well. Each character is unique and brings their own spice to the novel. When characters are that well developed, it makes the story all the more worth reading.
