Four couples live on the same cul-de-sac, sharing dinners, vacations and raising their kids. One of the couples adopts a second child from Russia who they claim to have special needs and their parenting skills come in to question: mostly behind their backs.

I had a hard time following along with this one. The main character, Nicole's thoughts would vacillate back and forth between: Paige is my friend, I don't like Paige, I want Paige to want to be my friend, Paige is horrible, but she is my friend. As neighbors they would either gossip or judge each other (again behind one's back), but consider each other family. I guess that could potentially be real life (everyone up in your business), just not mine: I could not relate.

I didn't particularly like any of the characters, this one just didn't vibe with me.

Mackey I hope you enjoy this one. Have a great reading weekend.

Melinda I disliked every character in this book!! The storyline was there, but it just fell flat. I had a hard time finishing this one!
