Review: Secrets of a Shoe Addict
Secrets of a Shoe Addict by Beth Harbison
Genre: Fiction, Chick-lit
My Rating: 4/5
Summary (from Chapters.ca):
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?
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.
Loreen Murphy hadn't meant to hire a male prostitute in Las Vegas. It was all just a big, stupid, expensive misunderstanding.
Tiffany, Abbey and Loreen are each in need of thousands of dollars and fast. Tiffany's sister, Sandra, has the perfect idea. It's fast, it's easy, it's legal, and it's the secret that kept her shoe addiction alive. It's the perfect plan...
It's not very often that I would say a sequel book was better than the first, but this is one exception... I really enjoyed Secrets of a Shoe Addict by Beth Haribson, the follow-up novel to Shoe Addicts Anonymous.
Who could image that one school trip to Las Vegas would result in such a list of 'Oops' events. An evening that starts out so innocent, turns out so wrong... who ever said 'What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas' sure didn't take these ladies into account.
With the re-introduction of Sandra Vanderslice, from the first book, this book was a big hit and anyone who enjoys a good chick-lit novel will love this one.
