Secrets of the Suburbs is the story of Lindsey, a 42 year-old suburban mom who seems to have it all – doctor husband, two great kids, satisfying part-time work; all the spin classes, shopping and lunches she can fit into her busy schedule.
But when a drunken moment with her friend’s husband opens up a well of desire, excitement and emotion that she didn’t even know existed, it throws her perfectly perfect life into turmoil. Because as Lindsey opens her heart and body to this forbidden passion; her eyes open as well, and she is forced to take a closer look at her life, her marriage and herself.
Already her friends are starting to whisper, her husband is growing suspicious and there is a Secrets of the Shore Facebook page that just may be talking about her.
Will Lindsey stay in her safe, pretty world with her seemingly perfect husband who just might have secrets of his own, or will she break every rule and follow her heart?
Whatever she decides, she'd better figure it out fast because in small town suburbia nothing stays secret for very long.
Secrets of the Suburbs is a delicious read. Well crafted and well executed.
Lindsey is seen to have it all, perfect house in a perfect neighbourhood, perfect husband with prestigious title, 2.4 children and more money than sense….ever watched the Real Housewives on tv….yeh that! That is until she has an affair with her friends husband.
Whilst I’m not a huge fan of adulterous story lines, I really wanted to see how it was going to play out and end and in a voyeuristic way enjoyed feeling like I was getting a glimpse of what goes on behind closed doors. I enjoyed the different points of views which enabled the story to hold my attention.
It was a good read and different to the norm which I appreciated. It’s one I’d definitely recommend to my girlfriends!
