Mix together the Stepford wives with Desperate Housewives. Add in a pinch of Sex in the City with a splash of CSI, and this mixture will equal Abby Drake’s new book, Good Little Wives.
We start our story in New Falls, N.Y., where a group of socialites present their selves as a club of elite women with nothing more to worry about but their husbands, plastic surgery, clothes and social obligations. When one of the wives is found standing over her ex-husband with a smoking gun it opens all their lives to public scrutiny…and then all their little secrets come out.
I started out not wanting to like these shallow trophy wives but I found myself hooked within a few chapters. It seems that almost all the perfect wives have something that must be kept a secret, quite possibly even enough for one of them to commit murder. Good Little Wives contains enough twists, turns, and secrets to keep you interested till the end. A fun, tongue-in-cheek read for your lazy days.
NOTE: The author has lived this kind of life—with some exceptions, including the smoking-gun part.
Armchair Interviews says: Bored wives of hardworking executives make for good storyline.
