Amanda Vaughn needs some heaven-sent help. Her husband has betrayed her in the worst possible way, and, newly divorced, she's fled with her pre-teen children to her hometown of Hillside Park, an upper-class Dallas suburb. She's happy to leave behind the shallow, Godless life she lived in California and return to the welcoming, Christian world where she grow up.
But things aren't that simple. When Amanda returns to the town and church she remembers so fondly, nothing is as she remembers it. She encounters a cast of old friends, neighbors and fellow church members who are sweet and pious as can be until Amanda's back is turned. Then the claws come out. Amanda realizes she's encountered a group of Good Christian Bitches, or GCBs. Sharon, Heather, and Darlene are as fake as their costume jewelry.
In the whirling midst of salacious rumors, Botox, and fraud, Amanda realizes that her so-called friends are out to destroy her reputation. And what's worse, it's all under the guise of old-fashioned Christian caring. Will the Good Christian Bitches get the best of her, or will Amanda find a way to rise above the drama and triumph?
