THE DEVIL IN THE JUNIOR LEAGUE
Genre: Mainstream, General Mainstream Fiction
Desperate Housewives meets the Junior League in this warm and funny novel that pokes fun at the sometimes myopic world of the socially elite. Lee, who has penned historical and contemporary romances, has successfully transitioned into mainstream women's fiction with this superbly plotted novel. It has rich characterizations and plenty of laugh-out-loud humor.
Fredericka "Frede" Hildebrand Ware, a well-respected member of the Junior League of Willow Creek, Texas, arrives home one day and finds that her husband is leaving her. When she discovers that he's cleaned out their checking accounts, she enlists the aid of her neighbor, attorney Howard Grout. In exchange, Howard wants her to help get his wife, Nikki, into the Junior League.
The fun soon begins as Frede gets Nikki to trade in her stilettos for flats and her spandex for tasteful cotton. And when Frede meets artist Sawyer Jackson to ask him to exhibit at her gallery, sparks fly.
