About Waxed

Waxed is the story of three relationship-challenged sisters working together at New York’s hottest waxing salon, catering to socialites, actresses and regular folk alike.

Yank. On the surface, glamorous Carolina Impresario—big sister and owner of Impresarios—unapologetically wants it all, but secretly she is caught between her successful boyfriend and the one man she has ever truly loved.

Pluck. After a painful divorce, middle-sister Anna reluctantly reenters the workforce and puts on a brave face while attempting to raise her children, one of whom is decidedly different.

Tear. Newlywed Sofia is a hybrid of her two older sisters: she loves the idea of domestic life like Anna, but is entranced by New York nightlife and a new best friend, resulting in some major complications at home.

Amidst the sticky confines of a perfectly manicured world, these three sisters search for love, friendship, and better versions of themselves.

Waxed is a funny and heartfelt novel that illustrates the lengths to which some women will go to present a seemingly flawless exterior, even when it involves pain…

“Rave gets it totally right in this charming and hilarious novel about love, sisterhood, and dating. Waxed is the perfect summer beach read and a ton of fun!”–Beth Harbison, New York Times bestselling author of Hope in a Jar

You need two things in your beach bag this summer.  Sunblock and Spin.”       — Jen Lancaster, New York Times bestselling author of Pretty in Plaid.
