    For Kate Klein, suburbia's been full of unpleasant surprises. Her once-loving husband is hardly ever home. The supermommies on the playground routinely snub her. Her days are spent carpooling, and at night, most of her orgasms are of the do-it-yourself variety. So when a fellow mother is murdered, Kate finds that the unsolved mystery is one of the most interesting things to happen in Upchurch. She launches an unofficial investigation with the help of two friends and discovers the secrets and lies behind the town's placid picket-fence facade....

    JACK says: "Excellent Guilty Pleasure"
    "I think I read this book before"
    Overall

    This was a typical Weiner book, and if you like her books, you will like this, but not as well as Good in Bed or In her shoes. Kate is her stock character and Janey is there to keep the excitement. I think I have read this book before in her others. . . it's kind of like Nicholas Sparks books. . . how many times can you hear the same story (or in this case have the same characters)?

    Is it possible to write a sidesplitting novel about the breakup of the perfect marriage? If the writer is Nora Ephron, the answer is a resounding yes. For in this inspired confection of adultery, revenge, group therapy, and pot roast, the creator of Sleepless in Seattle reminds us that comedy depends on anguish as surely as a proper gravy depends on flour and butter.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No. The book was predicable and, well annoying. If I wanted to hear whiny characters who have first world problems and think life is miserable, I would watch the Kardashians.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Nora Ephron? Why or why not?

    No. Her character was whiny and weak. I did not see her as a person I would ever spend time with in real life. I just wanted the book to end. I didn't care how it ended--just that it would be over.


    What does Meryl Streep bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She is the perfect narrator for this book. I will leave it at that.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No.

    Television reporter Riley Spartz is recovering from a heartbreaking, headline-making catastrophe of her own when a longtime police source drops two homicide files in her lap in the back of a dark movie theater. Both cold cases involve women named Susan strangled on the same day, one year apart.

    What did you love best about Stalking Susan?

    The character development was thorough.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Well, the plot was similar to the Sue Grafton novels, and while I did predict the ending, I thought it was well explained.


    What about Bernadette Dunne’s performance did you like?

    I enjoyed her reading very much.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I would not make a movie of this book.
