About the Book:
Mystery writer Brooke Davies is the new wife on the block. Her tech-billionaire husband, Jack, twenty-two years her senior, whisked her to the Bay Area via private jet and purchased a modest mansion on the same day. He demands perfection, and before now, Brooke has had no problem playing the role of a doting housewife. But as she befriends other wives on the street and spends considerable time away from Jack, he worries if he doesn’t control Brooke’s every move, she will reveal the truth behind their “perfect” marriage. Erin King, famed news anchor and chair of the community board, is no stranger to maintaining an image—though being married to a plastic surgeon helps. But the skyrocketing success of her career has worn her love life thin, and her professional ambitions have pushed Mason away. Quitting her job is a Hail Mary attempt at keeping him interested, to steer him away from finding a young trophy wife. But is it enough, and is Mason truly the man she thought he was? Georgia St. Claire allegedly cashed in on the deaths of her first two husbands, earning her the nickname “Black Widow”—and the stares and whispers of her curious neighbors. Rumored to have murdered both men for their fortunes, she claims to have found true love in her third marriage, yet her mysterious, captivating allure keeps everyone guessing. Then a tragic accident forces the residents of Presidio Terrace to ask: Has Georgia struck again? And what is she really capable of doing to protect her secrets?

My Review:
There isn't one likeable person in this book and it was was like watching a soap opera with all the cat fighting, marriages, death and money. It is also a short book, but that isn't what made me able to read it in one sitting. The pages just flew by as I got sucked into the lives of Brooke, Georgia and Erin. I liked how chapters focused on one character's point of view, each of the women taking it in turn.

I loved the over-the-top characters and they were very well developed, we get some back story for each of the ladies and that goes a long way to feeling for them (good or bad). And even though the plot wasn't completely plausible...I was shocked and was totally satisfied by the ending...surprising twists anyone!? This is the perfect beach read by any definition and can be read in one sitting. I would call this a guilty pleasure and I enjoyed every minute of it.
