SynopsisWhat begins as a beautiful evening at a party on a yacht ends with attempted murder...and a quest for revenge...
One moment Angie Morse is standing on the deck of a large luxury yacht and the next she feels a stinging blow to her head, a champagne bottle welded by a beautiful woman. And then a push. She is in the water. She can see people on the yacht, but they don't seem to notice that she is gone, and all seem to have deliberately turned their backs as the yacht begins to slowly pull away from her. These are her friends and one is her love. Each one had a reason for getting rid of her, though she would never have thought it would come to this. Until now.
Revenge burns so deeply inside her that she knows she will survive somehow. She will get them. Each one of them-three men and one woman. She will get them all. One way or another.
Told with Elizabeth Adler's trademark attention to luxurious detail of people and places, One Way or Another is a glamorous, twisty novel of vengeance and vindication.

My Thoughts: Every summer I always look forward to a new Elizabeth Adler book. Her books are always a must read for me. I really, really wanted to love this book, but unfortunately I just found it ok. This book was told in the first persons POV and that kind of bothered me a little. I also found it a little hard to really get into.

Ahmet Ghulbians is a horrible human being. Raised in poverty and always having nothing in life, he sets out to get everything he wants, and he does. He set's his sights on Angie, a redheaded girl from NY, with no family. After being on Ahmet's yacht his "assistant" hits Angie over the head with a champagne bottle and leaves her for dead. Angie is determined not to die. One way or another follows Angie in her struggle to survive. We also have an artist that witnesses the whole crime and tries desperately to find out who the girl that fell in the water is.
