Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Just in time for summer, Brown's novel offers an enjoyable, if predictable, take on suburban California family life, complete with mommy cliques, rebel teenagers, and, of course, lots of adultery. Lyssa is a pushover mom striving for approval from her judgmental peers as well as her three active kids and overworked husband. She befriends Harry, a recently divorced half of the untouchable “perfect couple” of Paradise Heights, and in the process makes trouble for her family, but also finds some freedom from the pressures of wealthy suburbia. This is a town where kids have names like Tanner, McGuyver, and Temple; women meet daily at Starbucks to measure themselves against each other; and facials and pedicures are scheduled around school pickups. It's unfortunate that the narrator, Lyssa, is no more accessible or intelligent than any of her peers, and it's sometimes hard to root for her. However, these women inside their fishbowl are fun to peer in on despite being caricaturish, and the momentum of Brown's writing and plot keeps the pages turning. --Annie Tully

Review

"This character driven steamy book is like an affair between Desperate Housewives and a Jennifer Weiner novel, where priorities get shifted, friendships get broken and marriages, like their mansions, get rearranged."  --GoodHousekeeping.com
