CAREY DARLING She was the privileged wild child of the New York art scene, and my idol. FAKE I was a no-name painter from the Florida backwater, clawing my way into their world. LIKE When she died, she left a space that couldn't be filled. Except, maybe, by ME She was a no-name painter from the Florida backwaters who clawed her way into art school on nothing but talent. They were the enfants terribles of New York, rocking the art scene with daring work and dangerous stunts. And Carey Darling - the blonde waif with her dark, deathly sculpture - was her idol. When Carey dies, she loses her lodestar in an unforgiving world. Now - with a major exhibition and world fame in her grasp, she wins a place at the exclusive retreat in upstate New York where her remaining heroes hide away. She's dreamt of the outrageous revelries, the glamorous artists, the entrance to a forbidden land of privilege. What she finds is a ghost of its former self. No-one speaks of Carey. No-one shares their work. No parties light up the deck. And the black lake where Carey drowned gleams between them all. As she obsessively paints in Carey's studio, uncovers strange secrets and starts to fall - hard and fast - for Carey's mysterious boyfriend, it's as if she's taking her place. But one thought shadows her every move - what really happened to Carey Darling? A darkly satirical and sassy thriller about obsession and identity, Fake Like Me is a modern retelling of Rebecca, the original psychological thriller. With a flair for sensational detail and acidic wit, Barbara Bourland delivers a twist so sharp it cuts.

When Carey Logan, the darling of the art world commits suicide both patrons and fellow artists are left to wonder why. Enter our unnamed narrator, a raising star of the art scene, who soon finds herself being compared to Carey Logan. Following in Carey‘s footsteps our narrator‘s world becomes blurred between art and reality. I found parts of this story similar to Daisy Jones, Still Lives And Museum of Modern Love. #NetGalley #ARC #BorrowNotBuy
