The fake : a novel / Zoe Whittall.

Whittall, Zoe, (author.).


"A dazzling stranger changes the lives of two very different people in this gripping novel from the acclaimed author of The Best Kind of People. Does it matter if she isn't who she says she is? Shelby has always been an anxious person, but after the sudden death of her wife she is barely able to leave her house, pushing away her friends and her family. At a grief support group, she meets alluring wild-child Cammie, who insinuates herself quickly into Shelby's life, and gives her permission to express her most hopeless, hideous feelings. Shelby begin to feel much better. Carter is almost forty, newly divorced, plagued by stress-induced migraines, and laying on the floor of his bachelor apartment refusing to unpack. Then, after he reluctantly drags himself out to a friend's birthday party, an attractive woman beats him at poker, takes him home, and gives him something to live for. Her name is Cammie. Their relationship quickly turns into the most passionate whirlwind affair he's ever experienced, and he's a new man. To them, Cammie is perfect. She's exactly what they need. But when Shelby and Carter meet, they realize that Cammie's stories don't always add up. In fact, they might be far from the truth. Do they know the real her? Is the progress they've both made all a lie? And does it really matter if the woman they've both come to love ... is a fake?"-- Provided by publisher.
