Four different women. One common shoe size. And a shared lust for fabulous footwear. In this sparkling novel, the wife of a controlling politician, a debt-ridden eBay addict, an agoraphobic phone sex operator, and a nanny for the family from hell (who barely knows a sole from a heel but who will do anything to get out of the house) meet on Tuesday nights to trade shoes. In the process, they form friendships that will help each of them to triumph over her problems, from secret pasts to blackmail, bankrupcy, and dating.

"Reading this novel is like eating a slice of cake." (Publishers Weekly)
I enjoyed listening to this and looked forward to learning more about each character. I was not disappointed! Each character is so different, yet they are able to bond and become great friends. I look forward to more Beth Harbison books.
So far I feel like it's just a shoe version of Confessions of a Shopaholic. I will continue to listen to it and update if anything improves.
I really enjoyed this book. Cute story, great characters, easy read. Definitely read the rest of Beth Harbison's books. They are ALL great. Wish there were more to download!
This is a very good read, it takes a while to get into the plot but it's interesting with all the different lives. The narration is wonderful as well.You don't have to be a shoe addict to enjoy it either, that is only a piece of the story. I recommend this book, especially if you like Sophie Kinsella type books.
Overall, an enjoyable story with four interesting characters with very different backgrounds coming together. I thought the author did a nice job developing these characters with entertaining storylines.
The narrator was just okay, a bit robotic at times though.
SO fun. All the girls from all walks of life have one thing in common their love of shoes and lack of friends. There is just enough background of each character that you get to know and enjoy their participation in the story. I loved this book.
This is a very unimaginative book. its similar to confessions of a shopaholic but not nearly as good. The characters were boring. i listened just to finish it.
