The TV series is so much funnier - don't waste your money on this book!
Amazon Customer
I felt like the author was in a hurry to finish the book because the ending was a big disappointment and anti-climatic.
Dee
I felt like the plot raced to the end - typing up the loose ends too quickly and neatly.

I bought and read this book before the debut of the ABC series aired...and let me tell you...this was a great book that I am recommending to all my friends. It is well written, funny, sympathetic, and full of good morals (as far as Amanda goes)! I thought Amanda's mom was hilarious and her charity work and gumption were to be admired. Sure, she has some cat fights with local mean girls, but she rises above the drama...most of the time. Nothing offensive is in this book at all, aside from the rare use of the b word. A really cool book for hip young women and fans of the traditional chick lit genre. Humerous to the hilt. I am dying for the author to write a sequel!!!!!!! Also, I will say the ABC show GCB is not following the book totally, so fans can enjoy each separately without worrying about the plot of one giving the other one away....a delicious treat of a book. So GOOD!!!! A must read!!!!!!!

Before the premiere of GCB, I felt as a good Christian (who was born in Dallas) that it was my Southern duty to read this book and see what the fuss was all about. I chuckled as a realized how loosely Kim Gatlin based this book on Highland Park in Dallas. The plot with Amanda Vaughn returning to Dallas with her two children was an entertaining light read. This book could be based anywhere as hypocrisy is not exclusive to the South! My favorite part of the book was Amanda building a new relationship with her mother. I felt like the plot raced to the end - typing up the loose ends too quickly and neatly. The TV show did not follow the book and the clothing worn on the TV show would not be worn by any good Christian "bitch or belle" come hell or high water!!

Im noticing some of the comments on here and have to laugh. I loved the book and could relate through the entire thing. The spoiled Highland Park brats growing up to go to SMU on daddy's dime and their mothers being the caddy Christian judging you from A to Z with a smile. My husband now understands why I quit going to Church in Dallas. The humor was great. Im sorry some think it's trashy. I can only imagine why...I thought it was a delightful way to represent the bible thumpers of the South.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book at the bookstore after devouring the first forty pages before I even walked out of the building. The story centers around Amanda Vaughn who returns home to HIllside Park, an extremely wealthy neighborhood in Dallas, Texas, after a failed marriage in which her husband was a serial philanderer. Since it is the neighborhood she grew up in she's taken by surprise when she isn't welcome back. Her friends, aware of her good looks despite having gone through heartache, are jealous over the fact that they have yet another rival within their ranks for male attention, even though, Amanda isn't on the lookout for datable men, she's just trying to get her life back together. Nonetheless, her friends from high school are determined to ruin her reputation and social standing as best as they can. And their main vehicle for doing so is through the Longhorn Ball charity event. As the previous reviewer stated, there are some artificial elements present throughout the book. But it isn't so much the fault of the author, but rather the social strata of which she is writing is actually very much superficial and it is to her credit that she captures it well in this book. Unfortunately, many people still think the Deep South possesses the gentility and glamour of Gone With the Wind, and while that may have been an accurate portrayal of the South during Margaret Mitchell's era and before, this book is actually representing the Deep South society in its present state much more realistically. The way they use Church activities for malicious gossip and how the true message of Christ is not lived out, is highly accurate of this element of Southern Society.Read more ›

I bought this book because I started watching the TV series. Talk about a disappointment! This book is all over the place, there is a lack of depth to the characters, and the ending is lame. The TV series is so much funnier - don't waste your money on this book!

Sure, it's trashy and the plot and characters are over the top rediculous. But with a title that's trashy, over the top and rediculous, what do you expect? I chuckled at some parts, and found myself smiling as I rolled my eyes. It was an alright book, a quick read, fun and cute-sy. However, that being said... the ending is abrput and awkward. Not to spoil anything, but after hearing the life stories and designer preferences of every darn character, I expected some sort of character arc and development. But no. The final scene ends with the characters showing they are who they are, they haven't learned a thing, and you realize that not only was there no conflict resolution, but besides overly analytical, silly gossip, there really wasn't much of a conflict in the first place.

So, I end with a "meh". 3 stars for the characters and dialogue that were quirky enough to get you into the story and give you a few chuckles... but.... that's about all you get here.
