The Woman Next Door: A Novel | [Barbara Delinsky]

The Woman Next Door: A Novel

Along with their husbands, Amanda, Karen, and Georgia are a close-knit circle of friends enjoying seemingly ideal lives in an upscale neighborhood. But when they learn that their lovely younger neighbor, widowed for a year and presumably still unattached, is pregnant, the strains and imperfections of their lives come into full focus. As they ponder who the father might be, each of the women harbors suspicions about her own husband - and each is forced to a crisis point that will strengthen or shatter her marriage.

    Story
    "Interesting"

    I found this story interesting because one event causes so many ripples in the fabric of the other families lives. I think you can enjoy this book. The narration for me was somewhat difficult to determine who was talking. That could just be me. The narrator performed well, I had to start it several times to determine the character.

    Like mainly mystery and suspense with a bit of chick lit and non-fiction thrown in. Severe addiction going on 10 years to Audiobooks.

    "Kept me wondering!"
    Any additional comments?

    Whose kid was it???!!! I was guessing (and guessing wrong) the whole book. It was a nice story, and I could relate to the close knit neighborhood. Little bit of everything - romance, scandal, mystery...Typical chick lit! Definitely enjoyable.
