From author Alicia Shine comes an exciting fiction that will spice up quiet afternoons, “Social Butterflies.” This book tells the story of one vindictive woman who met her match. Her past came back to haunt her and an inevitable circumstance is about to strip her of everything else.

A loving mother, devoted wife, and an outstanding event planner was what Tamone “Mona” portrayed on the outside to those who did not know her. Lying dormant underneath was an evil, vicious snake ready to strike at anything and anyone that got in her way. Used to being in control and the center of attention, Mona suspects her husband is cheating and confronts the other woman, using her usual tactics to put fear in those who stand in her way. But Mona finally meets her match and realizes that she cannot judge a book by its cover. Her reign as the social butterfly is coming to an end. Her sins from the past came back to haunt her, and she cannot do anything about it. She is losing everything she holds dear. The once mighty Tamone will face hell. Is it the end of her?

This novel will pose this question to readers, “What do you value more than happiness?” Many married couples find their marriage in peril because their priorities in life are tangled in material things. Mona is more concerned of her image to the public eyes, coveting things that are way beyond her means and compromising her happiness for material gain. Andrew, her husband, is set on expanding his finances. He refuses to divorce Mona for the fear of losing his hard-earned money in the process. They both pattern their lives around society.

A compelling read, “Social Butterflies” will make readers think about their own lives and the situations they have stayed in for years. Mona’s story will motivate them to make adjustments that will let them find happiness and live life to its highest potential.
