    This book was so bad, I stopped reading it after 50 pages Against my better judgement, I decided to give it a second chance and read another 50 pages The main character, Susan, was amazed at how beautiful she was and had such a perfect body even after giving birth to triplets, no less Even her best friend s husband didn t escape ridicule Susan and her friend referred to the husband as Fat Boy and described him as nail gnawing, buffoonish, 300 lb, waxy skinned and not a dreamboat Every other person in the book wasn t worth living in Susan s world Some of the actual descriptions of these pathetic people included, fat, stupid, bucktooth, boring, zitty, blobby, mongoose describing her own mother , etc., etc If they didn t have one flaw, it was many one lady was needed to attend both overeaters and alcoholics anonymous I had enough when a policeman showed up at her door and had such bad B.O ...

    Absolutely one of the worst books I ve read in a long time I am being generous with two stars, probably overly generous Susan Isaacs used to be an awesome writer this one isn t even worthy of Jackie Collins It s shallow, full of pretentious brand name dropping and hateful, unlikeable characters Obsessed with looks, the only nice people in the book are described as obese, hairy, stupid looking, or otherwise unfit to habit Susan s ultra nouveau riche, designer world If you like your laughter at the expense of making hideous fun of people you might consider beneath you, you might find this book humorous I didn t.The end wraps up the mystery but leaves all of the interpersonal relationships hanging does Grandma Ethel ever even call the daughter she abandoned She s a hideous character as an adult, and you get the feeling she was a hideous child and deserved to be abandoned Do the in laws and awful brothe...

    I don t have much to add to other one star ratings Life is too short to read bad books and I generally don t ever feel the need to finish one I was intrigued by the loving husband being found murdered in a hooker s apartment and so I continued reading The wife is such an unlikeable person that it made reading her narratives, for example, about how her financial situation was stable after her husband s death and wouldn t result in her having to wear Vanity Fair panties, almost unbearable She has 4 year old triplets which she really has nothing to do with except to put them to bed at night or complain about the noise they make all day while being cared for by two au pairs The option of getting a real nanny rather than keeping the two au pairs went right over my head as I have...

    I m ashamed to have read this I m ashamed of the author I m almost ashamed of the English language Detective novels don t have to be literature, but they do have to have plot.

    I was looking for a fun, light, chic lit whodunnit Having read a few previous books by Susan Isaacs Compromising Positions, Shining Through which fit that bill, I thought this might be another winner Was I ever wrong The other Isaacs books I d read were generally 3 stars but at least they were entertaining and satisfying However, if the Goodreads system allowed for a minus rating, a 3 is what I d give this one.The mystery portion of the plot was at best a nugget of a sliver of an idea, enough for a very,very short story at best The characters are all thinly painted and run the spectrum from benign to obnoxiously annoying The bulk of the book reads like a product placement extravaganza with high end merchandise described in loving detail, and used as a way for the author to show how rich and tasteful the main character is In fact, all that comes through is a sense of nouveau riche guacherie So why did I slog through this crap and actually finish the darned thing Some ...

    This is a terrible book I picked this up thinking it would be a light hearted chick lit easy read Not really what I got It s really a hate filled book, with the main character Susan, describing all the other characters flaws in GREAT detail think several pages apiece The writing, even by chick lit standards, is quite poor There is an overcompensating quality about the writing every topic is narrative ad nauseum There isn t a character in the book that is likeable and every time they refer to the best friend s husband as fat boy I cringe...

    I was thrilled to win a copy of Susan Issacs most recent book from First Reads and it did not disappoint Susan s plastic surgeon husband turns up dead in a prostitute s Upper East Side apartment leaving Susan with her three boys, big suburban house, and lots of questions Although the police and prosecutors quickly...

    Eh I ve enjoyed some of Susan Isaacs mysteries, most notably After All These Years and Long Time No See, for what they were light entertainment This one was of that genre but not quite as good Susan s mysteries usually star a reluctantly suburban hausfrau, charmingly cynical and snarky while being an overall nice person Here, the main character got on my nerves I was tired of hearing how good she looked, and about the brand names of every designer item she owned or noticed from clothing to shoes to home furnishi...

    This book was much better than I expected it to be Susie is a beautiful woman with a beautiful life amazing husband Jonah, who is a successful plastic surgeon in NYC, 4 yr old triplet sons, a lovely home on Long Island, a full time housekeeper plus twin au pairs, a career as co owner of an upscale floral boutique It all crumbles when Jonah is found stabbed in a low rent call girl s apartment in Manhattan Susie can t accept the facts that a deranged prostitute killed her husband She decides to investigate on her own, much to the horror of everyone around her, who are worried that she ll damage the prosecution s case.The book is part mystery, part novel character exploration of Susie Susie narrates the book, and provides not only snarky comic relief but also her unique view of the world as someone who has an eye for beauty and is one herself E...

    Isaacs writes wry, funny suburban novels, and I was delighted to find one in the local library to read during a long wait Susie Rabinowitz Gersten has a perfect life as wife to a respected plastic surgeon OK, not perfect her parents are disappointingly dull and not supportive, her in laws think she is beneath them and their son socially, and her WASPy best friend business partner is rather self centered and mean But, mostly, she has a great life, with all the right possessions to prove it It all falls apart when her husband is murdered in a prostitute s apartment Susie is rather self centered, but she knows her Jonah wouldn t buy sex She sets out to discover what happened to Jonah, and the book takes off I liked that Isaacs kept Susie fighting her grief and loss many authors get into the mystery and dispense with the feeling of loss when a character is killed Ms Gersten is definitely attuned to fashion and price tags, but she is demonstrably...
