From #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Barbara Freethy comes a romantic and suspenseful story of three best friends and a terrible, life-changing secret.
Emily was their closest friend, or so they thought -- until years later, when her secrets send them on a perilous search for the truth about who she really was ... and why she died ...
Ten years ago, during a party gone out of control, beautiful, vibrant Emily plummeted to her death, leaving her three best friends and sorority sisters -- Natalie, Laura and Madison -- devastated. None of them has ever forgotten that night, or the role each may have played in Emily's death, the guilt that has pursued them, and the loss they still suffer.
Now an unknown writer has rocketed onto bestseller lists with a novel that eerily mirrors their own story. Who is he? How does he know the intimate details of their lives? And why is he accusing one of them of murder? As they begin to unravel the startling truth about their friend, each will rediscover a love she lost long ago and uncover secrets that will forever change her life...
"Three friends reunited to uncover a haunting mystery -- I couldn't put it down." Luanne Rice.
"ALL SHE EVER WANTED is a gripping tale of romantic suspense, but it's also a story of friendships, betrayal, love, heartache, and second chances. It's the story of four young women on the brink of adulthood, full of dreams and expectations, and the tragic event that changed their lives in ways none of them could have foreseen. But even though a tragedy is the basis of the book, it is an uplifting and hopeful tale."
"Barbara Freethy is a master storyteller with a gift for characterization, and in ALL SHE EVER WANTED, she gives readers seven intriguing characters. In order to discover what happened, Natalie, Cole, Madison, Dylan, Laura, and Drew must come to terms with their pasts, and in doing so, they learn a great deal about themselves and each other. Well written and compelling, ALL SHE EVER WANTED is a fascinating blend of romance, mystery, and suspense. Don't miss it!" Susan Lantz, Romance Reviews Today
