Antique-store owner Cricket Crosby’s life is turned upside down when she discovers that the rumors of her husband’s affair aren’t just leisurely southern gossip. Her plan: hire an investigator; find an attorney; enlist the help of her new assistant, Ruby; and make her husband pay.
Ruby knows how quickly everything changes. After a dicey past, she’s determined to forge a new future by working for Cricket and reinventing herself as a designer, deconstructing vintage haute couture. If anybody can help mend a few tears in Cricket’s life, she can.
But turns out Cricket’s life isn’t just a little torn. It’s wrinkled, stained, and falling apart at the seams. With Ruby and her ragtag relatives—a soused PI and a hunky tow truck driver—Cricket is sleuthing her way to the truth, no matter how dangerous it gets.
Sure, Cricket’s life isn’t what she imagined. But she’s embracing change and figuring out what she really wants. And that’s kind of fabulous.
So many surprises!
Just when you think Cricket’s husband couldn’t be any more of a jerk, he wins the prize for jerk of the year. He and his paramour are not discreet, so Cricket easily finds out about her husband’s cheating.
From there the author takes you on a ride with her team of ragtag pals consisting of one of her employees, Ruby, and a couple of Ruby’s cousins. At the same time, we get to enjoy some of the story from Ruby’s perspective which gives us a kind of twofer deal!
Both of these women are in need of change in their lives, and through friendship, they support each other through some of their very worst times. Friends are the family you choose.
