About the Book:
It wasn’t supposed to happen this way. When Eliza Hunt created The Hudson Valley Ladies’ Bulletin Board fifteen years ago she was happily entrenched in her picture-perfect suburban life with her husband and twin preschoolers. Now, with an empty nest and a crippling case of agoraphobia, the once-fun hobby has become her lifeline. So when a rival parenting forum threatens the site’s existence, she doesn’t think twice before fabricating a salacious rumor to spark things up a bit. It doesn’t take long before that spark becomes a flame. Across town, new mom and site devotee Olivia York is thrown into a tailspin by what she reads on the Bulletin Board. Allison Le is making cyber friends with a woman who isn’t quite who she says she is. And Amanda Cole, Eliza’s childhood friend, may just hold the key to unearthing why Eliza can’t step out of her front door. In all this chaos, one thing is for sure…Hudson Valley will never be the same.

The whole episode filled her with an excitement she hadn’t felt since shoplifting in middle school, that thrill of stepping out of the Hudson Valley Mall with a strawberry Bonne Bell Lip Smacker tucked into her training bra.

Welcome to The Hudson Valley, where we meet Olivia, Jackie, Alison, Amanda and of course Eliza. This was an amazing story of real life. It shows the joys and miracle moments life has to offer as well as the mistakes and regrets. It’s a love story between friends and marriage, children and family.

Anger can be expelled, but bitterness is internalized. That’s why it leaves a nasty taste in your mouth.

I enjoyed this story and these characters were fantastic. I felt like I was there, living this story with them and like they were also my friends. I went through every emotion with them and loved every bit of this book. I highly recommend this one and I'm so glad that one of my good book friends recommended this.
