The title caught my eye immediately i love me rich wives drama. However this took a little for the action to start happening but once it didn’t i really enjoyed it.

Decent thriller if not a bit predictable. You can read this one quick so if you’re near the end of the year and trying to get that reading goal number up this is a good choice.

An excellent escape for the "normal" fiction. A ritzy neighborhood with some of the best gossip queens and unpredictable day to day actions I think I have ever read.....but it's so much fun to be a fly on the wall as these privileged people work out their lives in black and white. The story is narrated by three of the wives and they really enjoy the beautiful world in which they live, until.......
Read the book. It's a very good guilty pleasure to see them all fall down.

This was a quick read, but definitely wasn’t that exciting and was pretty predictable. I also felt there were some inconsistencies in the story that will hopefully be addressed before publication.
I’m sure many will enjoy this. I just would have liked to see more character and story development. The relationships between the women are what kept me coming back for more. I loved they way they interracted.

Thank you to NetGalley and Ballantine Books for the opportunity to read this book for an honest review.

I wish I liked this one more than I did. It was kind of a slog to get through. I had higher hopes. I’m sorry.

I loved this domestic thriller! It was such a fun, twisty type thriller. I really had no idea who could be trusted.

Once I started with this one, I couldn't stop. I was reading all the time. On my Kindle and then my phone if I didn't have my kindle with me. And then I would fall asleep reading it before bed, read it on my lunch break. I loved this one!

Who doesn't wonder sometimes about trophy wives? I know I do so that is what made me want to read this one. Because what we love about the rich and famous is also when the rich and famous have drama. And this one was packed with drama! A Black Widow, nasty husbands, marriages for convenience, a hidden lifestyle, moving into a neighborhood to bring you closer to your prey. It was all there and it was all great.

I have nothing negative to say about this one because I think it hit all the good markers. It was really well paced, the story was entertaining. There were definite clues that the main character was not who she was portraying herself to be which I know really annoyed people because the other two forgave her so easily but it makes sense. Not a single one of them was a good person so it all made sense.

This was a DNF for me. I could not get in to the storyline and really did not care about the characters.

This was a fun and easy and thrilling summer beach read. Take the Real Hoisewives and add a mystery.

These rich ladies were all cuckoo but it was pure escapism and fun.

Plenty of twists and turns to keep me interested until the very end!

Thank you Ballantine

I've said it before and I will say it again- there's NOTHING more fun to read about than the wealthy behaving badly- and these three are the at the top of the "BAD" game. Affairs; dead (murdered husbands); hit men (or women); physical abuse and emotional manipulation, and lots and lots of money.... a week written book, full of many surprises. Have recommended and will continue to do so.

Thanks to Random House Publishing , Netgalley and Kristin Miller for this ARC. This was one excellent thriller .I loved the female characters, flawed and a bit evil but still I was routing for them. So many mystery scenarios, I never saw any of the many connections. I read it on one afternoon, so that’s a 5 star in my book. This author is now on my list of TBR books..

The three wives were absolutely dislikeable but those conversations are worth being a fly on the wall for. The twists came coming and they were completely unexpected which makes you just want to keep reading more. Its very well written but you have to really pay attentIon or you may miss a confession or two. Great read!!!

Thank you to NetGalley and Ballentine Books for the free review copy! 4 stars! I personally really enjoyed this book. I would highly recommend to fans of Real Housewives & Desperate Housewives. It was packed with drama and intrigue and kept me guessing throughout. It follows the lives of socialites and what goes on behind closed doors. Great summer/beach read and fast paced!

3.5 stars

I went back and forth with my review for this book. I did like the book, the characters were infuriating though! After getting most of the way through the book you get a better understanding of why Georgia is the way she is, not that it makes it ok, but I do begin to understand her a little better. But Brooke, I just felt something off with her throughout the whole book.

Overall I did like the book, the writing was good and the storyline was a little over the top but that’s fine. I really don’t mind that in a book!

This was infuriatingly interesting. That sounds odd but the sheer privilege of the characters was mindblowing. However, it moved super quickly and kept me interested.

I received a review copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley for my honest review. The opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.

Rich People, Community Neighborhoods and Mysterious deaths. That sounds great right? Sure, but for those who like a book that would be semi-believable, I would skip this one. Yes, it did keep my interest and I enjoyed the book very much. However, the farther into the book you got, the more unbelievable it seemed.

This book was super entertaining, and honestly, I did not expect that whatsoever. I did enjoy the first half of the book more than the second, but overall, this was a fun read for me. A one sitting read, for sure.

This one was filled with rich people behaving badly. While normally I love that, it eventually crossed the line into utterly unbelievable. 3 stars.
