"The Wing meets the Illuminati in the latest spellbinding novel from Laura Hankin, about a young reporter who infiltrates a women-only secret society made up of members who may or may not be witches.... For years, rumors have swirled about a secret, women-only social club where the elite tastemakers of NYC meet. People in the know whisper all sorts of claims: Membership dues cost $1,000 a month. Last time Rihanna was in town, she stopped by and got her aura read. But no one knows for sure. That is, until journalist Jillian Beckley decides she's going to get the scoop and break into the club. But the deeper she gets into this new world, the more suspicious Jillian becomes. The women are really into astrology and witchcraft, and their lives are somehow perfect. Too perfect. These women have a secret"-- Provided by publisher.

Hankin follows Happy & You Know It (2020) with another utterly addictive tale. Rumors abound about Nevertheless, a secretive women-only club where for $1,000 a month you can mix with the movers and shakers of New York City. It is widely speculated that the group engineered the election of the city's first female mayor, only to eventually bring her down. Desperate to get her journalistic career back on track, Jillian Beckley decides to get the scoop and finagles her way into the club's inner sanctum, quickly deciding that these women are "absolutely nuts." But they are also powerful and, as it turns out, dangerous. Jillian counters them with her sheer determination and will, making for a delicious cat-and-mouse game, although she begins to find herself oddly drawn to their outlandish rituals. The forthright and witty narrative creates an intimacy with Jillian that will make the reader feel as though a good friend is telling one of her bizarre and drawn-out stories. Highly recommended for the Sex and the City audience. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
