Secrets of a Shoe Addict
Shoe Addict #2
by Beth Harbison
Synopsis from Goodreads
Loreen Murphy hadn’t meant to hire a male prostitute in Las Vegas. It was all just a big, stupid, expensive misunderstanding. Abbey Walsh never intended anyone to find out about the fact that she’s being blackmailed. As a minister’s wife, her sordid past was supposed to be a secret. Tiffany Vanderslice Dreyer never dreamed that she’d find herself up to her eyeballs in credit card debt from one mad moment of a shopping spree. She’s an upstanding wife and mother with the perfect marriage…right? Secrets of a Shoe Addict is the story of three women who bond together when they find themselves in more than one kind of trouble. It’s the story of how sometimes, you hide a secret side that can get you in–and out–of dire straits. It’s about romance, friendship, kids, revenge, affairs, and most of all a love of all the well-heeled things in life.
When you find yourself sitting in a parked car, unable to leave because the CD isn’t at a stopping point, you know it’s a 5 star read. Secrets of a Shoe Addict was one of the funniest books I’ve ever read, but as I’m sure you figured out from the summary, it is not a book for all audiences.
The characters were real. They were human, complete with flaws and insecurities and their stories were hilarious. One of the characters went on a series of bad dates that rivaled my “When I Poop” date my freshman year of college. As ridiculous as some of the situations were, I found myself snickering along and wondering what I would do if confronted with the same scenario.
The pace was perfect; I never got bored. There were several times that I sat in the grocery store parking lot, listening to the CD until a chapter break.
