Effie Buran's been alone most of her life. Obese, with a large wart prominently displayed on her hooked nose, she knows her appearance turns most men off.
Then Effie inherits an immense fortune, and everything changes. She's courted by Howie, a charming rogue who convinces her he's marrying her for love. And in a way, he is-a love of money.
Effie's naïve enough to believe Howie until she catches him with another woman. Now she wants revenge. And when you're worth as much as Effie Buran, you've got the resources to get even-with interest.
Traveling to an exclusive European spa, Effie transforms herself physically and emotionally. As she slims down, she finds herself intensely attracted to fellow spa resident Lorin, a scientist healing from a lab accident. She can't fully commit to him until she has her revenge on Howie, but once she does, Effie's all Lorin's. As for Howie, he'll never know what hit him.
A comic but touching story of betrayal, revenge, and new love, Effie's Revenge reminds readers a scorned woman is a force to be reckoned with-especially if she happens to be Effie Buran.
