The last thing she needs is to become fodder for the JLWC gossip mill. And to make matters worse, there's only one person in town who stands a chance at helping her get revenge: Howard Grout, a tasteless, gold-chain-wearing lawyer who has bought his way into Frede's tony neighborhood. But there's a price: She has to get his tacky, four-inch-stiletto-and-pink-spandex-wearing wife Nikki into the Junior League. Linda Francis Lee has written an hysterical novel about the creme de la creme of Texas society, the lengths to which one woman goes to bring her cheating husband to justice, and how taking on what seems like a "Mission Impossible" can change you in ways you could never have imagined.« less
I loved this book. It had a bit of everything . . . cheating men, backstabbing "friends", family dynamics, and in the end, finding true self and true love. Written by an author with insight into the inner workings of upper class Southern social circles. Fun read that leaves the reader feeling every cloud just might have a silver lining after all.
I really enjoyed this book. I got it in a game here and it was easy reading. Fluffy adnd light with a biting sarcasm all wrapped up in a creampuff that made me giggle wickedly more than a few times. The main characterw as likeable even when she wasn't, and the ending was great-revenge is a dish best served with sweet tea-spiked.
Try this one. It seems a little fru fru in the beginning but its well worth the read. i finished it in one night because all of the characters were so vivid.
I had been eyeing this book for a while, and when I finally got it I was extremely disapointed. Maybe because I'm not really into thie genre right now. But the charectors seem to lack serious depth and really any relatebility. I usally love chick lit but this one was way to fru fru for me. I didn't even finish the book.
