Join Katie’s Email Letter GoodReads Amazon



From the IPPY-award-winning author of Entanglement comes a fast-paced story of deception, the power of friendship, and the first blossoming of love.

A tension-filled weekend at a lake house will change the lives of two unlikely friends forever.

One hot, North Carolina summer, Daphne Saito and her boyfriend Sutton encounter awkward physics geek Greta Donovan, a fellow college student at elite Cameron University. But while Daphne sees Greta as someone worth befriending, Sutton’s motives are far from pure.

A romantic spark and a cruel joke send Greta and Daphne’s new friendship into a tailspin over a weekend vacation. Will the trio’s lives in end tragedy? Or redemption?

A retelling of My Fair Lady that is filled with unexpected heroism, Love and Entropy reveals what can happen when we let our vision of what others should be cloud our vision of who they are.
