SYNOPSIS FROM AUTHORS WEBSITE

Two women are watching each other.

MY THOUGHTS⇣

 

Thoroughly entertaining despite some believability issues, some of the things that go down in this are rather absurd but I still found myself eager to listen.  Actually, the more I think about the story the more dubious I feel about it, so that's my cue to end this review.
