The secret is out, but the drama is far from over.
Isabelle Scott and Mirabelle Monroe are still reeling from
the knowledge that they're not cousins after all -- they're sisters. The media
pounced on the tale of their prominent politician father's unknown daughter, and
while the girls put on a happy public face, someone has been leaking their true
feelings to the press.
With cotillion season right around the corner, though, the girls have
barely had the time to process their newfound sisterhood. Mira has been
dreaming about making her debut in a gorgeous white gown for as long as she can
remember. If only she could figure out whether artsy heartthrob Kellen Harper likes
her likes her and will agree to be her escort. Izzie, meanwhile, is still
struggling to find her place in Emerald Cove. But it's seeming ever more
impossible with mean-girl Savannah Ingram and Cotillion Chairwoman Abigail
Townsend (the mother of her not-quite-boyfriend, Brayden) doing their best to keep her
down. When Brayden's troublemaking older sister, Dylan, rolls into town, Izzie
thinks she's finally found someone to whom she can relate. But as cotillion
preparations heat up, there are dance steps to learn, manners to perfect... and
secret initiations to complete? As if sophomore year wasn't hard enough! It's time for the gowns to go on and the gloves
to come off.
"Winter White is an engaging sequel to Belles (Little, Brown, 2012) but can be read as a stand-alone. Readers invested in the lives of these characters will want to continue with this saga."
Praise for Belles:
"Belles is a must-read, full of scandals, sisterhood, Southern charm, and secrets!"
