Good Stuff

I've just finished reading this book. It's a quick read and exactly my style. Juicy, gossipy and a little mystery. It definitely reminded me of a Desperate Housewives episode. If you're looking for a light read that you can focus on whilst listening to SpongeBob in the background...this should do the trick.

A synopsis:

While their husbands are out making money, making deals, and making . . . whatever, the trophy wives of New Falls are slipping not so quietly into middle age. Lauren, Bridget, Dana, and Caroline pretend to each other that their only problems are parties, plastic surgery, and which Mikimotos to buy. But behind the closed doors of their gracious homes there are broken hearts and broken promises . . . the stuff that gossip is made of.

And the newest dish du jour is a whopper! The husband of one of their oldest friends, who dumped his wife for a newer model—a sexier, flashier, sleeker hairdresser—is found dead, his ex-wife, Kitty, standing over him . . . holding the smoking gun.

Kitty claims she's innocent, and there are plenty of women around town who might want the rat dead. Now it's up to the women to discover where in their high-priced suburb a killer is hiding, and which good little wife has done something very, very wicked.

I'm so glad you recommended this book. I picked it up at Target about a month or so ago and have been tied up with other books & magazines in the meantime. I'll have to get right on it!
