This book had domestic violence, and a murder, but it still made me laugh! The characters love and laugh, rub each other up the wrong way, extend the hand of friendship, spread gossip, try to do better, cry and keep secrets – just like real people. Though we know someone has died from the beginning of the novel, we don’t find out who it is till the end, as we go back through the histories of the participants to uncover the nagging jealousies and problems that led to the fatal moment. So we spend the book in a state of breathless anticipation and worry. Who died?
With the characters, even I got desperate to find out who died. The answer was very satisfying!
PS – After you read the book, go watch the HBO mini series!! Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman – You cannot miss them!
