    7. I figured this would be light chick lit about four women whose lives were intertwined While I was right about the intertwined lives, it was not light reading it was a dark book in a lot of ways Who are the four wives Marie used to work at a major law firm in New York Now she has a part time divorce practice in the suburbs and specializes in representing fathers in custody disputes Her husband is an attorney also, but he hates his job and is spending and time on the golf course Marie also has a [...]

    10. The first half of the book was intriguing The super short chapters made the stories fly by and reminded me of the style of Dan Brown However, I felt the story became too trite Maybe I have been reading too many female thirty something stories lately The lawyers case defineatly gave me perspective on true love and the personal sacrafices that some individuals are willing to make I don t know if I would be able to keep that kind of a secret for so long It also reminded me of a CDI episode where a [...]

    11. This was a very good book It was about reality and romance It was a book telling you that the real world isnt all fun and games It also told you that people dont always last in relationships It have a selection of genres such as Drama Romance and real life This is the only book i have read by Wendy Walker but i will read she is a very descriptive writer The only downfall about this book is there are many swear words and parts that are not appropriate for un mature people I would recommend this [...]

    12. Quick read with a depressing look at suburbia Being a city dweller myself this book scares the heck outta me as demoonstrating everything I see to avoid in my life I know marriage is not perfect, but these characters present what I would like to think of as the worse possible outcomes ever Despite a plot line that I hope most can t relate to, the book is actually a fun weekend read It is most certainly something you can pick up and put down It also doesn t require much afterthought Chic lit woud [...]

    13. Great read, it s not really in keeping to its book cover, the cover looks like a typical chick lit, this was a bit darker, had a bit intelligence Don t misunderstand it is about four wives facing mid life crisis in all there own ways and facing adversity within there marriages and families, which is all chick lit, I m just saying the story back story is a bit advanced then the light and beach breeze it s a bit provocative in the writing style It was a good read.

    14. So I got this on the bargain table a while ago and have had it on the back burner ever since I wasn t sure I would really like it as it looked sort of treacly is that a word to me I actually liked the writing and the interwoven story of four discontent housewives Some of it was sort of silly, but I liked the voice given to each character and the efforts to make them distinct An average book for this particular genre.

    15. The first chapter didn t draw me in, but once I realized that Wendy Walker s novel encompassed the lives of four distinct characters and I was able to get them all straight, I really enjoyed this novel I read review s claiming that the story wasn t believable or that is depressing.I found it completely the opposite Yes, the women all face struggles in their lives and marriages, however, it rings true in many places full review on blog

    16. Absolutley I loved this book I would reccommend for all of us 30 something wives mothers who feel the spark has left the building this is a story about 4 real marriages with real issues and the charaecters are human and deal with things in a human flawed way pass this one one to all your friends Enjoy

    17. Overall, Four Wives is a good first effort The characters are well developed, and the story though not necessarily original will keep you interested All that s really missing is a touch of wit to take off a bit of the cynical edge.Read the full review at nightsandweekends arti

    18. Four wives is a book about four unhappy women That is it plain and simple The chapters are short and the book flips from character to the next If you read a little at a time it is hard to keep the characters straight in your head at first It took me almost two weeks to make myself finish this book.

    19. It s rare for me to pay for a book, and find it so unreadable, that I give up after 10 pages This was that book Formulaic not even in a fun way and poorly written, I just pretended 10 fell out of my wallet so I could save myself the embarrassment of admitting I bought this Oops Just admitted it

    20. I picked up this book because I saw a review in the CT section of the Times about it and it was by a local author Couldn t get through the book as it was so trite, boring and an utter waste of time Awful

    21. I never really got into this book It was a really SLOW read but I want to find out what happened to the characters In the end what happened was very predictable The author could have told this story in about half the book.

    22. I wanted to like this, I really did But she spends tons of time expositing Deep Thoughts and that got old really fast I kept reading solely to figure out what Love a problem was, and then I was almost done anyway, so I finished.

    23. RNNC December book what a disappointing read It was this bad I had about 20 pages to go and it sat on my bedside locker for 2 nights.The characters were poorly developed and even by the end of the book I could hardly remember who was who

    24. The beginning was a bit hard to keep straight, but the story became much cohesive and easier to follow after a few chapters Overall, a light, fairly easy read Liked the characters and the plot wasn t crazy outrageous.

    25. Funny and sad story about the lives of 4 women Author lives in New Canaan, CT so I couldn t help but think the story was based on or at least influenced by her life here.

    26. This was an enjoyable debut novel I liked the fact that the story focused on all 4 women and their relationships.
