"I loved this juicy-as-it-is-heartfelt novel about love, marriage, friendship—and sharp, manicured claws. Could not put it down!" —Melissa Senate, author of The Secret of Joy
"Hollywood's got nothing on the cast of characters living in the bedroom community of Paradise Heights, who have the secrets, sex, money, and scandal of an OK! Magazine cover story. Josie Brown is a skilled observer whose clever dialogue and feisty style make for truly entertaining reading." —Jackie Collins
"Poignant and funny! Josie Brown’s protagonist is strong, resilient and unflinchingly honest; she has all the skills she needs to navigate the ‘mean streets’ of the gated community of Paradise Heights. A great read!" -- Wendy Wax, author of Magnolia Wednesdays
“Brown proves that a story with suburban bodies can be just as suspenseful as one with dead bodies! Secret Lives of Husbands and Wives is a probing, entertaining fishbowl of married life in a well-heeled, wayward neighborhood. Loved it!” - Stephanie Bond, author of Body Movers
"Fans of DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES will love this story..The quick pace and snappy dialogue make this a fun read."

review I couldn't have been more surprised. When going on a long ride, I amuse myself with listening to a book on CD (or tape since my car is actually old enough to have a tape player! ) The Flying J Truck stop carries many items including DVD's, CD's, and Audio Books. I often stop and check them out since the prices seem to be reasonable but I don't usually expect to find something great. This book was one that I found there and I figured I would give it a try.
Josie Brown nailed it! Her depiction of an affluent suburb and the adults and children that live there was perfect. Lyssa finds herself reflecting on the life of a neighbor, Harry after his wife has left him and rumors have been flying. She wonders what it is like to be a man at home taking care of the house and kids and figures he might need some support. Being a kind hearted person, Lyssa invites Harry to meet the other wives on the neighborhood board. Harry accepts Lyssa's invitation and meets the other women only to find that they are looking for a far "deeper" friendship than he wants to offer. By setting boundaries, he puts off the other women and finds himself not quite so welcome in the group anymore. Lyssa then gets the idea that perhaps it would be good for him to become friends with the two other men that she knows that work from home. Oddly enough, Lyssa finds herself more comfortable with the men than with the women on the board. She and Harry have become good friends and are strong supporters of one another so of course, rumors begin to develop about their relationship.Read more ›
