“In the tradition of Candace Bushnell and Jackie Collins, McCarthy has created a novel filled with razor-sharp social commentary and irresistibly dynamic, complex characters. At turns hilarious, scathing and seductive, THE SCARLET LETTER SOCIETY is not to be missed!”
—Kyra Davis, New York Times bestselling author of JUST ONE NIGHT

The Scarlet Letter Society is back! Maggie, Eva, and Lisa must figure out how to handle sudden notoriety when the truth about their various infidelities comes to light and face the criticism of a suburban subdivision harboring scandalous secrets of its own. The SLS never intended for their small group to become fodder for gossip, but word of mouth and a scandalous blog post has spread like wildfire. Suddenly, the SLS early morning meetings at the Zoomdweebies coffee shop have been discovered. What will the implications be for Maggie, whose shaky love life was just starting to settle down, Eva, whose life was already in chaos, and Lisa, whose husband never knew about her “cheater’s club”? The answers are discussed at another coffee klatch, this one inside the subdivision where Lisa lives. There, the women seem normal on the surface and are quick to judge, but, they have many secrets of their own, including a full-blown sex swingers’ club. Three new women are introduced, creating an entirely new level of conflict. The Scarlet Letter Scandal continues one of the hottest, funniest, and most salacious new romance series on the market.
