Little White Lies: A Novel of Love and Good Intentions (Mass Market Paperbound)
WHAT'S ONE LITTLE WHITE LIE?
Okay, so it isn't that little. It's kind of a whopper. It's just that when Natalie Raglan ups and quits her job at a Bath advertising firm, breaks up with her loser-ish boyfriend, and moves-to London Things don't quite turn out the way she planned. Having made the brave move to the Big City, the lifelong country mouse finds that living chic is still a long way off. Even Cressida, the girl who used to rent her tiny flat, still gets more phone calls and mail there than Nat does. Come to think of it, Cressida Langdon's life looks pretty appealing-especially when an invitation to the posh, exclusive Soho House club arrives, addressed to Cressida.
Before she really knows what she's done, Nat has opened Cressida's mail . . . and taken up her life. Soon Nat's dating a gorgeous investment banker named Simon, giving "reiki healing sessions," wearing wonderful clothes, and partying with the A-list at Soho House. But the best part really is Simon. He's everything Nat has ever wanted. The problem is he thinks she's someone else. And as her life and her lies begin to spiral out of control, Nat can't help but wonder: Will she be exposed as a liar and a fake-or be saved from ruin by simply claiming "good intentions." . . .
