I loved this book. It was funny, witty, and charming. I am not a shoe addict, but somehow I felt like I could relate to each of the characters. Whether it be spending too much money for the joy of the buy, feeling insecure, or out of place...each character seemed very real.
I read this book in one day...I couldn't put it down.
This book was amazing! I absolutly loved it! I started and finished it within an evening. I have already preordered (comes out in June) her next book which I am sure will be just as wonderful!! And of course when I finish that one, it will be up for grabs!! Enjoy!
This novel was terrific! Four women, with four different personalities and lifestyles, join forces in a support group called Shoe Addicts Anonymous, in the Washington, DC area. From the eBay addict up to her eyeballs in debt, the political wife caught shoplifting, a phone-sex operator with agoraphobia, and a nanny for the family from hell, these four women bond over their size 7 and a half Manolos. Surprisingly funny and endearing, this book is a winner!
Cute story about shoe addiction that brings four women together once a week to trade designer shoes. These women are from completely different walks of life, but along the way, they become friends as they deal with their shoe addictions, personal problems and living their lives. The author does a wonderful job of introducing each character, spending enough time with each one to give the reader an opportunity to bond and empathize with them. Fans of chick-lit and romance novels will enjoy the quirky humor each character brings to the story.
I loved this book. Four women from different circumstances come together with only a shoe size in common and form a friendship bond that helps them overcome their problems. A good quick fun read. I look forward to reading the sequel. Carol
