Amber Patterson is tired of being a person and has had enough. She is a simple and invisible woman who blends into the background, but who deserves more. Amber wants a life of money and power like the blonde haired, blue-eyed goddess Daphne Parris takes for granted.
Daphne, a socialite and philanthropist, and her real estate mogul husband Jackson are regarded by everyone in the exclusive town of Bishops Harbor as a couple straight out of a fairy tale.
Amber’s envy is about to devour her alive, but she has a plan. She uses Daphne’s compassion and caring to creep into the family’s life. This is only the first step in a meticulous plan to undermine Daphne. Soon, Amber becomes Daphne’s closest confidante. She even travels to Europe with the Parrish family, while getting closer to Jackson.
Meanwhile, Amber has a backbone from her past that could undermine any of her devious plans and, if discovered, could cause her well-crafted plan to collapse.
