Worst Idea Ever


Georgia and Lydia are so close they’re practically sisters. So when Lydia starts an online business that struggles, Georgia wants to help her – but she also understands Lydia’s not the kind to accept a handout. Setting up a fake Twitter account, Georgia hopes to give her friend some anonymous moral support by posing as a potential customer. But then Lydia starts confiding in her new internet buddy and Georgia discovers she doesn’t know her quite as well as she thought. Georgia knows she should reveal herself, but she’s fascinated by this insight into her friend’s true feelings. Especially when Lydia starts talking about her. Until Lydia reveals a secret that could not only end their friendship but also blow up Georgia’s marriage. Georgia’s in too deep. But what can she save? Her marriage, her friendship – or just herself?

Georgia is lying to her best friend Lydia.

Just a little white lie – a fake Twitter account to support Lydia’s struggling business. No harm meant. But maybe this wasn’t Georgia’s best idea ever.

Because Lydia wants to confide in her new (fake) Twitter friend. About Georgia and her husband Nick, who might be having an affair.

Georgia wants out. Except what if it’s true? She needs to trick Lydia into revealing all.
But there’s another possibility. Lydia could be lying right back . . .

Has Georgia’s worst idea ever turned out to be Lydia’s best idea ever?
