Publisher's Summary

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.

Chic Lit with character development

I enjoyed this book because the characters are not outrageous stereotypes. These women are more like you and me than is the norm in Chic Lit. The characters change and grow throughout the book and they do not depend (too much) on men rescuing them from their troubles. I loved getting to know these women and cheered for them when they changed their lives for the better. I also love shoes, which predisposed me to like this novel. This book is slower paced than you might be used to for this genre, but give these characters a chance and they will win you over with their regular gal charms.

a cute listen

It kept me entertained for the most part. Did it keep me running longer because I couldn't stop listenting to it, no. But there are very few books that do that for me.
It took about 15 minutes to get going but I liked how it was about 4 different women so I liked the 4 different point of views.
I liked the narrator.

Fun read

First time reader of this author - will try another. Light reading - cute storyline - loved the orator.
Sometimes you just need a good read without a lot of twists and turns.

Nice, Enjoyable!

It's an easy listen, four women and their shoe addiction. Believeble enough. The stories come together nicely and interestingly at first and problems are fixed with a nice tidy bow at the end. The narrator is fantastic. She's the reason I chose the book. Will read more from this author just for the narrator!

was okay

This book follows the lives of different women being lovers of trendy shoes that meet up weekly to discuss their lives and of course shoes! I thought the book would be more fun and engrossing than it was, it was an okay read, but certainly not a book that you are not wanting to put down. The book is very slow and you don't really feel or care for any of the characters.

LOVE the Shoe Addicts books!

I am not a person who is into shoes, but these Shoe Addicts books are the best! They are engaging and hilarious! I hope there's sequels soon!

Funny and excellently crafted

This js not the normal genre of books I usually read at all. I must say, I am so glad I did. Beth Harbison has a new fan In me. The stories of each character were amazing and the fact that it's about.so much more than their mutual love for shoes was surprising. I'm looking forward to.the next book in the series.

another winner I'm in love with Beth Harbison ' s.

Beth Harbison ' s writing style is charming and witty. She can manage to make you laugh and cry all in one page. I love it.
