Summary (From the publisher):

This is a tale of two sisters. No, this is a story of sibling rivalry. Shay (nee Stephanie) Karavan is famous and beautiful, a radical free-lance journalist who covers and cavorts with the rich and greedy. Natalie Karavan Myers is neither famous nor glamorous, a liberal social worker who shelters and feeds the poor and needy.

Shay is twice divorced, thrice engaged, ex-lover to hundreds, fast friend to thousands, adored by the international press corps, and even though she's the gorgeous grandmother of one delicious little girl, she's just forty. Shay behaves like a reckless teenager and gets away with murder.

Natalie's been married for twenty years to one of her sister's cast-off lovers. The marriage is dying of boredom. She's childless, but a wonderful baby-sitter, a dutiful daughter, dependable. She has the thankless job of cleaning up after her sister. Natalie acts her (middle) age.

Shay's just stolen the news story that could mean the scoop of her life. But someone's just stolen Natalie's car with Shay's scoop on the backseat. Maybe this is a good time for Natalie to make some changes in her life.
