Obsession. Lies. Greed.

Chelsea is thirty-two, vain and self-absorbed, driven in life only by want and her obsession with being the best. However, despite wanting to portray an outwardly perfect image, things at home are crumbling between her and her boyfriend, Brendan. Together they harbor a secret that has been slowly chipping away at their relationship, and now, things have come to a breaking point.

One day at yoga class, Chelsea meets a woman named Damaris who is exactly like her; beautiful, confident and reaching high to be her best self. Damaris and Chelesea become instant best friends and bond over healthy eating, fitness and their love of luxury items. As Chelsea’s heart hardens toward her boyfriend, her obsession with the enigmatic Damaris only blossoms.

As one bad decision turns into another, Chelsea begins to think she is being followed by a white bird. Her new best friend Damaris suggests a girls weekend in New Orleans to get away from it all and Chelsea readily agrees. Unfortunately for Chelsea, it soon becomes clear that she can’t run away from her problems and finds herself tumbling head-first into a downward spiral instead.

EXCERPT:
“Oh my gosh! You’re an animal whisperer!”

“Something like that.” Damaris smiles down at the bird. She quietly mouths something to the creature and gives me a side-eyed grin. For a moment, the bird freezes, and it almost seems as though it can understand her. Damaris raises her hand in the air and the bird takes flight, the darkened tips of its wings now on full display.

“That was so cool.” My words come out breathy and hitched as I place a hand to my heart. “How did you do that?”

Damaris shrugs. “It’s no big deal.”

And so it began. Chelsea and Damaris. Damaris and Chelsea. Instant best friends. I’m positively smitten with this beautiful, interesting girl who is so magnetic, she even draws animals to her. It is strange to admit, but even I can’t ignore the fact that maybe I was forming a little bit of a crush on her. Damaris. Yoga goddess. Smoothie aficionado. Animal whisperer. My new best friend.
