I was initially excited to pick up this story of a group of women who are part of a reality show. I don't watch any of the Housewives of _____ shows, but I won't lie--I think there's something fascinating about them. And this insider's look at what it might be like to be on a show of this nature was kind of appealing. As I dove into the book, I found it had a major issue. This story's big flaw is how hard it is to keep track of who-is-who. I listened to the audiobook version and that helped me sort out a couple of the characters, but I must admit that until nearly the very end I found myself trying to look back at my paper copy of the book to see who various characters were. I think this was a problem of characters who were similar and too many story-lines converging.
I think I'd be willing to try another book from Jessica Knoll because despite the confusion caused by the layout of this story, I often found myself pulled in by her fast, witty dialogue. I think a better edit might have tightened up this tale and kept it from getting so out of hand and over-the-top confusing.
Agree with majority of the comments. Did not like this book. Slowest book ever - i finished it to finish, but had no interest in it; nothing happens throughout the whole book until about the last three chapters.
If you watch any of the Real Housewives shows, this book will entertain you. A splashy look at the inner tensions and dramatics of a reality tv show. It's not exactly sophisticated literature, but was a fun book to read over a weekend.
I tried to get into this book. Got about 50 pages in and couldn't do it anymore. What a bunch of nonsense.
A scandalous mystery set against the backdrop of a reality tv show. Lots of women behaving badly...not a ton of depth, but entertaining.
The previous comments are correct based on the fact that it takes a while to get into this book. There are a lot of characters and in the beginning it’s a little confusing. I’m a huge Real Housewives fan and I stuck through it. In the end it was worth it. About 1/3 through the book picked up and was really good. I don’t regret finishing it. As for the reviews comparing to Luckiest Girl Alive, I thought that was slow to start as well.
I should have listened to everyone else. This book is nothing like Knoll's first book which I loved! I couldn't get into it, I found it confusing and as another commenter says...life is too short for bad books. So disappointing
I could not get into this book. I gave up after 60 pages. Worst book ever.
Couldn't get into this book, jumps around. quitting after 60 pages.
I was really looking forward to this book, since I enjoyed Knoll's Luckiest Girl Alive so much. However, after many attempts, I just could not get into this book. I finally gave up. Life is too short for bad books!
