Med school dropout and botanical enthusiast Lena is desperate for a job, any job, so when she’s offered a position working for one of Boston’s most elite families, she knows she must accept it—no matter how bizarre the interview or how vague the job description. But the glitz and glam of billionaire life is quickly tarnished and Lena soon finds herself vowing to get revenge—a poison-filled quest that leads her further into this hedonistic world than she ever bargained for, forcing her to decide how much—and who—she’s willing to sacrifice for payback.
The perfect next read for fans of Mexican Gothic, Tripping Arcadia is a page-turning and shocking tale with an unforgettable protagonist that explores family legacy and inheritance, the sacrifices we must make to get by in today’s world, and the intoxicating, dangerous power of wealth.
