Four women in their forties leave their husbands and children to fly off for a weekend in Monte Carlo. After spending an afternoon flirting with the pool boys and any men at the resort pool [2 of them topless no less] they hit a club where they pick up 4 strangers. Next is the casino and then back to a yacht for an orgy. Pardon me, but this sounds like a man's dream and not anything believable! From the background, these women appear to be stable and not with a Paris Hilton lifestyle!

Two of the men are shot and one of those just happen to be the President of France! These four wayward women go to prison where there life is pure hell. Have no idea what the prisons in France are like and have no intention of finding out--- but if they are anything close to what is described I don't know what all the fuss was about with Abu Ghraib. Those were terrorists and not desperate housewives tortured there!!!

If the background of the women and their first day in Monte Carlo had been expanded, it might have been a better book. Instead it left you wondering why these ladies would become sluts within hours. The majority of the book took place in prison which was not an entertaining read. The ONLY thing that saved this book from being a total waste of time was the ending.

JennE ..and the ending is cheesy, not to mention all the horrific description of jail and then it ends..just like that. It's almost as if the editor called and said,"times up! Send what you've got" ..and they just threw a quick ending together.
