The Housewives of...
Reviewed in the United States on November 1, 2020
I had heard some good things about this author, so when this book I showed up at one of my favorite book review sites, I had to snap it up. Unfortunately, I find myself very disappointed. None of the characters is remotely likable or even relatable; they lead such shallow lives. Cat is married to William and living her dream life. Neena dreams and schemes of taking over that life as William’s second wife, even though she is married to a man who loves her. What they do to each other to try to keep or achieve the life they want is along the lines of the worst sort of “housewife” reality TV... and then way beyond. On top of that, the man they're essentially competing over doesn't really seem worth it as he isn't too bright... or even interesting. If you like trashy “housewife” TV shows, this book is the novel equivalent but takes the concept to an extreme level. Personally, I didn't like it.
I received a free copy of this book, but that did not affect my review.
