"Misery loves company. More than an old cliche, those words become an obsession for Phoebe DuChamp. Once the popular and pretty all-American high school sweetheart, Phoebe lost it all when she married the wrong man soon after graduation. Harold, the star quarterback and king of the playboys, has made Phoebe's life miserable for ten years. Instead of divorcing Harold, Phoebe finally devises a way to make his life miserable too. Her plot backfires, however, when she becomes a victim in a tragic boating accident. When Harold is unable to collect on her million-dollar insurance policy, it appears that Phoebe may have won out in the end. Shy and quiet, Lacy was less than popular in high school, and often walked in the shadow of her unlikely best friend, Phoebe. Now she's content to live behind the scenes as a voiceover actress for a well-liked cartoon character. When she finds herself the beneficiary of Phoebe's insurance policy, Lacy's quiet life is thrown into the spotlight-especially when cryptic clues start to point to murder. Phoebe's brother, homicide detective Marcel DuChamp, just won't allow "The Case of the Accident Prone Prom Queen" to rest. If he's not careful, he could trip into something that will take him on more turns and loops than a rollercoaster ride."-- Provided by publisher.

Oh my goodness. This book was GREAT! Phoebe DuChamp is a woman who was in a messed up marriage. Her husband, Harold, got her involved in pornographic films, that at first she enjoyed, because she wanted the fame that her childhood best friend Lacy had. Lacy was a voice-over for a cartoon character. Phoebe decided to kill her husband during a boat ride where she, her husband, and his attorney, Adam, and her lover Sonja, were filming. Things went wrong and she ended up being stranded on a hill next to Lacy's house. Phoebe had plastic surgery to change her appearance and fell in love with Lacy's neighbor Dave. Phoebe had Lacy as her beneficiary for a one million dollar double indemnity insurance policy. Lacy had been in love with Phoebe's brother, Marcel, since childhood. No more info. Just read the book. You will DEFINITELY NOT be disappointed. This book is highly recommended to every and anyone.
