Summary
The never-satisfied Marti Denton lives near Cleveland, Ohio in the 'perfect' suburb of Hunting Hills where the women are toned and beautiful and their husbands are rich and successful. Marti sets her sights on having an affair with longtime bachelor John Harding. Only a small problem stands in Marti's way--John's new wife Claire, a mousy country-bumpkin who doesn't know how to play by the Hunting Hills wives' rules. Marti and her friends will just have to teach Claire one or two small things.
Critique
A fun read. Desperate Housewives meets The Stepford Wives. A great addition to the chick-lit genre. The local setting will have you driving through Cleveland suburbs on the off chance of meeting some of the wild characters in this quick read. Recommend.
