If you read and liked "First Wives Club" then you'll like this one too! Their stories are heartbreaking, but how they band together and take their lives back will have you cheering for them in the end.

Really liked this one!

I love Olivia Goldsmith. I also love stories of women growing up together and lasting friendships. Very similar to First Wives Club.

Goldsmith was in my eyes one of the founding mothers of chick lit with her cool insights into womens lives in the 20th century plus she always has that edge of revenge in her books where her characters get the men who did them back and good!

I could not put this book down! After reading this book I found out that what they say about a woman scorned is true. This book is a wonderful tale of the friendship of 3 young married women, the men that did them wrong, and the revenge (a dish best served cold LOL) they took against them.

Michelle adores her childhood sweetheart husband, Frank, and the dreamhouse he's provded for her and their two beautiful children. Jada is an African-American wroking mom trying to maintain a happy home despite her husband Clinton's failing business.

A typical New Yorker, half-Jewish, half-Italian, Angela is a lawyer married to Reid, a handsome old-money WASP. Michelle adores her childhood sweetheart husband, Frank, and the dreamhouse he's provided for her and their two beautiful children. Jada is an African-American working mom trying to maintain a happy home despite her husband Clinton's failing business.

But then, like a bad soufflé, the lives of Angela, Michelle, and Jada collapse as they each discover the truth about their dirty, rotten mates. Uniting for solace and support, they draw on one another's friendship to heal their wounds. Bowed but not beaten, though, this smart, audacious trio will concoct a brilliant recipe to take back what's theirs and serve justice on their duplicitous men -- and transform them from victims to victors!
