This was a really fun book. I was really rooting for these ladies and hoping their husbands got what they deserved! It was funny, but also it reminds you that you can start over and change everything even when you thought there was no hope.
The back cover reads:
The Kudzu Debutantes' 5 Rules of Revenge
1. Drink tequila, early and often. It puts you in a retaliatory mood.
2. Kick your cheating husband where it counts. Need we say more?
3. Complete secrecy is a must. Master the fine art of the poker face.
4. Forensic technology is a bitch. Kill without a trace.
5. Listen to the advice of your mother in law... then do the opposite.
This book is funny and an easy-read for vacation. I enjoy reading books like this on the plane. It's the type of book which keeps your interest but allows you to pause to listen for your flight call.
Oh My Goodness. I loved, loved, loved this book. Hey, being a "Southern Belle wanna-be" for twenty-years before I achieved my official "status" (we've been in the South 32 years now) I know these women. Honest, I do and they are as repressed, free, domineering, unafraid, outrageous and courageous as the women in this book.
I laughed so hard at 1:00 a.m. last night in bed I woke my three dogs and husband with the giggling, raucous laughter, and jumping up and down in bed. Read it, soon, you will love it I promise, Honest~
Definitely an interesting read. I spoke with the mom about 100 pages in and said "not again, another book that I am not a fan of." I was upset that I have not been reading the "jaw dropping I want to read this again" books that I am used to since I started blogging. BUT alas this book picked up!
I am used to the novels where at least one of the characters is closer to my age group. Sometimes it is hard to get into a book when you can't physically relate to a marriage falling apart or dealings with children. Although, once the revenge part of the novel kicks in, I was hooked.
Each character was unique but you could imagine these three women as close friends. Without spoiling the major plot of the novel, they have the opportunity to band together and teach their men a lesson. I believe that is when I got really hooked - waiting for their plans to unravel.
One of the great things that I loved about the book was the setting. In Ithaca, GA, a great southern town close to Atlanta. Being a transplanted southerner in a northern spot without sweet tea has been more than an adjustment. I love to read books that are filled with the southern charm.
I would recommend this book to the older set of ladies, who have friends or themselves seen marriages fall apart or know of the pressures of raising children and the strain it takes on someone's life. A light read that any female could enjoy, but definitely wouldn't pass this off to the boys!
Definitely a cute read, but not one to hold on to for another read.
