This story centers around Marti Denton and her friends, who are filthy rich suburban housewives in the exclusive community of Hunting Hills, Ohio. Money is no object to them, and they even have their own set of 'Hunting Hills Rules of Behavior for Wives'. John Harding is the resident bachelor, until he returns home from a trip to Prague married to a small town West Virginia girl (Claire) who he met while there.
From there it's just pages (some quite funny) of Marti scheming with her friends to get Claire out of the picture so Marti can have John all to herself (she's just discovered she's madly in love with him, and not her husband), while pretending to be Claire's friend so they can find out all the juicy little details of the couple's personal life. But then an unexpected turn of events changes Marti's entire world, and it turns out Claire is the only one who can help her. Will she? And what will happen to all of them in the end?
I was very pleased with the ending of this book, and even a little bummed to be finished with it. Even though they're shallow, conceited, and extremely snobbish, this group was a lot of fun to read about. This was my first Sarah Strohmeyer book and I am looking forward to reading more of her in the near future.
As a resident of northeast Ohio, I know the community whose citizens inhabit this book, the fabulously wealthy, everything perfect-looking to the outsider. Chagrin Falls, Beachwood Mall, and suburban enclaves where all the children are above average were recognizable. The book was funny and heartwarming. I enjoyed it very much.
This book was funny but other than that It was a bit too fluffy. I read it and can see it as easily forgettable after it goes back to the library
I really enjoyed this book. It's funny and the characters are a little crazy, yet lovable.
I loved this book and the author. It gave me insite on how the other half lives and I was really suprised. It's a great book, very well writen and a fun read.
Book was okay... Not like her Bubbles series at all. Slow to get into at first, but I still wanted to keep reading to find out what happened.
