Best friends with troubled pasts escape to Los Angeles, finding danger along the path to redemption.

Someone just tried to kill Greta Donovan, and she’s not saying who. The worst part is, she didn’t see it coming. She may be fiercely intelligent, but she can’t relate to people. And she hasn’t a clue where men are concerned.

After college, Greta moves to Los Angeles with her best friend Daphne Saito. Charismatic Daphne teaches Greta how to wear stilettos, apply lip gloss, and navigate Hollywood nightlife. Greta comes into her own: she falls in love with her new boss and befriends an aging movie star. But trouble looms.

Daphne is determined to succeed, and drags an unwilling Greta into the limelight with her. One night Daphne takes her Hollywood ambitions a step too far, and her actions push Greta into the path of danger. Will their friendship survive? Will Greta?


“Pryal deftly portrays relationships that are under the magnifying glass, obsessive and dysfunctional, while still capturing the complexity and love of those intense early twenties friendships.” —Kate Moretti, New York Times bestselling author of The Blackbird Season and The Vanishing Year

“Equal parts heartbreaking and heartening, Entanglement shines a light on the interior lives of two flawed and fascinating women.” —Camille Pagán, bestselling author of Woman Last Seen in Her Thirties

“ENTANGLEMENT is an evocative story of enduring friendship, rivalry, and the ties that bind. A heartfelt, fabulous novel!” —Diane Haeger, award-winning author of Courtesan and The Secret Bride

“Women and men, love versus obsession, need and want: these tenets flow like characters in the pages of Katie Rose Guest Pryal’s ENTANGLEMENT. When the beautiful Daphne Saito and awkward and striking Greta Donovan are let loose on nineties LA, the effect is like a charged atomic particle, and no one is free from the fallout.” —Ann Garvin, USA Today bestselling author of I Like You Just Fine When You’re Not Around and The Dog Year
