Angela, Michelle, and Jada, thirty-something women who appear to have lives as delicious as dessert...
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...more
I think Goldsmith has a serious chip on her shoulder when it comes to men and it's getting tired. The only part that was actually funny and reminiscent of The First Wives Club was when they were pa ...more
It wasn't horrible, but it could have been a lot better. Here are my issues:
1. It could have been shorter. 600 pages for chick lit is overkill in my eyes. Since it was summer and I just read a gruesome, based on a true story book, I wasn't as annoyed as usual. But unless you're a literary genius, you can pro ...more
I found this book to be quite sexist. It was all women are suffering heroes and men are heartless jackasses. Gender stereotypes drive me up the wall. I understand that gender equality hasn’t always been the case and women had to work hard to ...more
A story about three...young wives (shocking, I know) who are all wronged by their husbands so they band together to seek revenge on the men who wronged them. The women are victorious in their schemes all their husbands are humiliated and the women ...more
I'm happily married so I'm not in the man-hater club, but I could appreciate the sentiments and the humor used by the author throughout the book. Her bio says she's no longer a wife, so there's clearly some sarcasm toward men woven into her writing.

I do however, relish her books as a palate cleanser especially after reading any particularly dry tome. Goldsmith pumps up the adrenaline with a really good yarn, and almost always leaves me smiling from ear to ear at the end. Bravo, Ms. Goldsmith!
Enjoyed reading this book, l honestly did not want it to end.
fell in love with the characters Jada, Michelle and Angela.
What women do in strong friendships to protect each other, especially against evil husbands who do wrong to their children.
The storyline is so strong, wishing there was a movie.
l shall admit that l enjoyed this read better then the First Wives Club, now that is a strong statement, that is how great it is.
Goldsmith is one that is able to write in a manner that is compelling, the characters seem real as life and the problems they deal with are common and faced by many.
You can't go wrong reading this book.
