Read it Forward

These two great bloggers i read started a really cool thing called Read It Forward.

To sum it up, basically its like a giveaway. I am going to put a book on here and link up with their Read it Forward pages. Then you get to leave me comments and then Friday i am going to use random.org to pick the lucky winner of this book. You would then read the book, review the book and on the inside cover write your name and blog. You would then when you have finished the book, list it on your blog to pass it on. If your lucky, not only will you pass a good read on, you will also get a book.  So, Please click on the link about (Read It Forward) for all the details.

So, now finally, the book i have decided to part with that has been sitting on my book shelf. Its called The Secret Lives of The Fortunate HouseWives by Sarah Strohmeyer.

(text taken from Amazon.com)
Perfectly timed to ride the wave of Desperate Housewives-mania comes a sharply sardonic tale of suburban sex-capades, social snobbery, and stock swindles from the author of the effervescent Bubbles mystery series. In the tony Cleveland suburb of Hunting Hills, where absurdly wealthy executives ensconce their couturier-clad wives in opulent McMansions and supply them with platinum AmEx cards, there are rules for wifely behavior that have nothing on the Ten Commandments. Trophy wives happily commit adultery and covet their neighbors with style and aplomb. As queen of this realm of riches, Marti Denton reigns supreme. Only one thing eludes her--the oh-so-sexy John Harding--and Marti isn't about to let a little thing like John's recent marriage to the mousy Claire or her own rocky marital state stand in the way. The mordantly observant Strohmeyer skewers the lifestyles of the rich and fatuous with spot-on irony, painting her pretentious socialites with broad, sarcastic strokes in an uproarious, upscale, tongue-in-cheek tour de force.
