I absolutely devoured this book. I brought it with me on vacation to Mexico, and it didn’t last nearly long enough. I picked this book up without really knowing anything about the plot. I thought it was a typical suburban-middle-age-lady drama book. You know the type: most of the drama is centered around affairs you see coming a mile away or a house party that was socially disastrous. The only reason I got it was because I had heard about the HBO miniseries they were making (who can resist Reese Witherspoon?). While that’s probably a bad reason to buy a book, it definitely paid off.
