Ann, Maria, Sabrina, and Deb meet once a year for a girl's weekend out involving too much gossip, booze, and a dash of naughty fun if they can find it. The stakes get jumped up a notch when they run across a handsome drifter in a bar. They only meant to give him a ride to the nearby campgrounds, but the night is dark and wet and he's easy on the eyes. They take him home for a bit of flirting and dancing, maybe more. Yet, when morning comes, the stranger is dead and they have to figure out how to cover up the events of the last night. One mistake stands between them and a courtroom, and once that mistake is made, their lives are forever turned upside down. Tabloids make their lives front page news; their friendships are tested, and secrets they did not even know existed come to light. The drifter was more than he seemed, and that fact may get the women a ticket to death row. ..................... ** For all it's craziness, this is a realistic read, especially if you live in Texas. It's racy and slapstick. The author uses a second person point of view that can be rather disconcerting; a more normal third or even first person pov would have been an easier read. **Was this review helpful?

Well written and exciting
For ages the four females would share women¿s only weekend together near the Golden Gate Bridge. Sabrina, Maria, Ann, and Deb look forward to this year as each has personnel trouble to deal with and escape feels good. At a bar, the four meet Hughie; Since he needs a place to stay and seems like a nice chap, they invite him back to spend the night at their lodging. The next morning they find their guest dead. The quartet decides to bury the drifter so that they would not have to deal with the police.................................... The women go on with their lives until a road crew dig up Hughie¿s corpse. The FBI begin making inquiries including questioning the four friends. Will one break and tell the truth or will they remain in solidarity as evidence mounts that they may have done more than inter a dead person and tamper with a crime scene?..................................... This dark comedy will remind readers of the Hitchcock movie The Trouble with Harry. The story line is action-packed and fast-paced as the women jump from one disaster into another. Still the reason the tale is fun is the four pleasant females each has a distinctive personality that surfaces when they conduct the funeral service and when the Feds come after them.........................
