The Accidental BestsellerBook - 2009
Once upon a time, four aspiring authors met at a writers' conference. Ten years later they're still friends, veterans of the dog-eat-dog New York publishing world. Mallory St. James is a workaholic whose novels support her and her husband's lavish lifestyle. Tanya Mason juggles two jobs, two kids, and a difficult mother. Faye Truett is the wife of a famous televangelist and the author of bestselling inspirational romances; no one would ever guess her explosive secret. Kendall Aims's once-promising career is on the skids--as is her marriage. Her sales have fallen, her new editor can barely feign interest in her work--and her husband is cheating. Under pressure to meet her next deadline, Kendall holes up in a mountain cabin to confront a blank page and a blanker future. But her friends won't let her face this struggle by herself. They collaborate on a novel none of them could write alone--using their own lives as fodder, assuming no one will discover the truth behind their words. No one is more surprised than they are when the book becomes a runaway bestseller. But with success comes scrutiny and scandal. Now all bets are off as these four best friends suddenly realize how little they truly know each other.
