From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Alex & Eliza comes a return to adult fiction, centered around a mysterious woman’s birthday celebration—and what it reveals about her past.

Ellie de Florent-Stinson is celebrating her fortieth birthday with a grand celebration in her fabulous house in Palm Springs.

At forty, it appears Ellie has everything she ever wanted: a handsome husband; an accomplished college-age stepdaughter; two adorable and rambunctious six-year-old twin boys; lush, well-appointed homes in the city, desert and beach; a thriving career as a well-known fashion designer of casual women’s wear; and a glamorous circle of friends.

Except everything is not quite as perfect as it looks on the outside—Ellie is keeping many secrets. And scrubbing her past of its shadows has a cost, and all of Ellie’s secrets come to light on the night of her fabulous birthday party in the desert—where everyone who matters in her life shows up invited or not, old and new, friends and frenemies. Stepdaughters and exes and mistresses and ex-lovers congregate and the beautiful facade of her life crumbles in one eventful night.

Beautifully paced and full of surprises, The Birthday Girl is an enthralling tale of a life lived in shadow, and its unavoidable consequences.

“[Melissa de la Cruz] contrasts the glamorous but vacuous world of the back-stabbing elite with gritty but often sweet memories of Ellie's impoverished youth… Scandalous and bittersweet, our heroine's charmed life seems to teeter on designer stilettos as she gets closer to the truth of who she really is.”
Kirkus

“De la Cruz expertly mixes biting satire with suspense and throws in more than a few surprises...Readers will be riveted as long-simmering secrets come to light.”
Publishers Weekly

“Alternating narratives and layers of unanswered questions keep the pace moving quickly, and readers interested in domestic drama with ominous undertones will be hooked.”
—Booklist

"This is an intriguing domestic suspense novel that will engross readers as they explore Ellie’s life and past."
