Susie assumed her marriage to a handsome Park Avenue surgeon was great. So when Jonah is found murdered in the apartment of an 'escort', she is overwhelmed. With help from her tough-talking, high-style Grandma Ethel, Susie takes on her snooty in-laws, her husband's partners, the NYPD, and the DA as she tries to prove that her wonderful life with Jonah was no lie.
Faith Newsome has it all: a loving husband, beautiful daughter, and a stable life as the owner of a thriving shoe boutique in Washington, DC. Yet a part of her feels as if she's not who she seems to be, as if she's living a lie. When Faith gets kidnapped by a group of goons while walking to her car, she suddenly remembers who she is -- not the suburban wife and mother whom she convinced herself to be, but Champagne, the daughter of one of the most ruthless killers and drug dealers in New York City.
