About the Author

Melissa de la Cruz is the #1 New York Times, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, and Publishers Weekly internationally bestselling author of many critically acclaimed novels, including Disney's Descendants novels, the Blue Bloods series, and the Alex & Eliza trilogy. Witches of East End also became an hour-long television drama on the Lifetime network. Her books have sold more than eight million copies worldwide. She lives in Los Angeles with her family and, for many years, owned the Lear House in Palm Springs, where she threw many fun events but never a birthday party.


"[Melissa de la Cruz] contrasts the glamorous but vacuous world of the backstabbing elite with gritty but often sweet memories of Ellie's impoverished youth. . . . Scandalous and bittersweet, our heroine's charmed life seems to teeter on designer stilettos as she gets closer to the truth of who she really is."--Kirkus Reviews

"Melissa de la Cruz expertly mixes biting satire with suspense and throws in more than a few surprises. . . . Readers will be riveted as long-simmering secrets come to light."--Publishers Weekly

"Alternating narratives and layers of unanswered questions keep the pace moving quickly, and readers interested in domestic drama with ominous undertones will be hooked."--Booklist

"This is an intriguing domestic suspense novel that will engross readers as they explore Ellie's life and past."--The Parkersburg News and Sentinel
