Many of us believe we would jump at the chance to cover up some indiscretion of a loved one in order to truly prove our devotion (or at least, one-up them by cleaning up their mess), but how many of us would not only cover up a murder, but do it well?

This book is amazing, and every woman should read it in public. While cackling.
