Three women. Two bodies. One big lie…

‘Shocking and scandalous’

Working at an elite private school nestled in the Colorado mountains, office assistant Natalie dreams of having a life like the school moms she deals with every day. Women like Brooke – a gorgeous heiress, ferociously loving mother and serial cheater – and Asha, an overachieving and overprotective mom who suspects her husband of having an affair.

They have one thing in common: the handsome, charming assistant athletic director Nicholas, who Natalie loves, Brooke wants and Asha needs.

But when two bodies are carried out of the school early one morning, it seems the jealousy between mothers and daughters, rival lovers and the haves and have-nots has shattered the surface of this isolated, affluent town – a town where people will stop at nothing to get what they want.

Set in a world of vast ranches, chalet-style apartments and mountain mansions, The Lying Club is a juicy thriller of revenge, murder and a shocking conspiracy – one in which the victims aren’t who you might think.
