Tangerine by Christine Mangan

A novel split between two main characters (Alice and Lucy) and two time lines (Vermont--the past and Tangiers--the present). Sort of...all set in the 1950's although the prologue is Alice after the events of the novel and I'm not exactly sure where she ended up. Don't want to spoil the story but it owes a lot to '50's noir and kept thinking about The Talented Mr. Ripley. Almost there but kept wishing for more clarity...but maybe this wasn't what the author was going for, who knows. Yet another tangled fevered mess--why am I attracting this sort of book in 2024???
