Every woman has a secret. The question is: How far will she go to make sure it stays secret?
Abbey Walsh never wanted anyone to find out about her shady past. After all, she's the wife of a minister now, living an exemplary life. That is, until someone shows up from her past with blackmail in mind . . .
Tiffany Vanderslice Dreyer never dreamed that she'd find herself up to her new designer sunglasses in credit card debt from one mad moment of a shopping spree. She's an upstanding wife and mother with the perfect marriage . . . right?
Loreen Murphy hadn't meant to hire a male prostitute in Las Vegas. It was all just a big, stupid, and expensive misunderstanding. . . .
Abbey, Tiffany, and Loreen are each in need of thousands of dollars and fast. Tiffany's sister, Sandra, has the perfect idea. It's fast, it's easy, it's legal, and it's the secret that kept her shoe addiction alive. It's the perfect plan. . . .
In this deliciously sassy novel, three very different women bond when they find themselves in more than one kind of trouble. It's the story of how sometimes you have a secret that can get you in---and out---of dire straits. It's about romance, friendship, kids, revenge, affairs, and, most of all, a love of the well-heeled things in life.
This tale of four housewives who run up unexpected debt and become phone-sex operators to pay it off is a perfect fit for audio. Orlagh Cassidy milks the comedy to the hilt, especially during the phone-sex calls, when she alternates her voice between the gutteral men who call, the seductive purring tone of Tiffany and Loreen as they coo come-ons, and their actual inner thoughts during the call, which are eye-rolling and sardonically amused as they think about the ridiculousness of their conversations. Among the audio's many laugh-out-loud sequences: shy Abby's awkward, stammering attempts at the sexy calls, and the time one of the women gets caught up in her phone role only to have her daughter come home from school early. Cassidy's timing and delivery are perfect, making this audio even more fun than the print version. A St. Martin's hardcover (Reviews, Mar. 31).
This was a really good sequel to Shoe Addicts Anonymous. I loved the characters and by the end, you feel like you're personally part of their group. The ending was a little cliche, but in all, it's a great heart-warming and humorous read.
I guess since she had a best seller with her first book she didn't want to take any chances. But as far as I can tell she took her first book and changed the names and a few details and called it a sequel. It feels like I'm reading the same book I just read. What a rip off!
