Secrets of the Suburbs is the story of Lindsey, a 42 year-old suburban mom who seems to have it all – doctor husband, two great kids, satisfying part-time work; all the spin classes, shopping and lunches she can fit into her busy schedule.
But when a drunken moment with her friend’s husband opens up a well of desire, excitement and emotion that she didn’t even know existed, it throws her perfectly perfect life into turmoil. Because as Lindsey opens her heart and body to this forbidden passion; her eyes open as well, and she is forced to take a closer look at her life, her marriage and herself.
Already her friends are starting to whisper, her husband is growing suspicious and there is a Secrets of the Shore Facebook page that just may be talking about her.
Will Lindsey stay in her safe, pretty world with her seemingly perfect husband who just might have secrets of his own, or will she break every rule and follow her heart?
Whatever she decides, she'd better figure it out fast because in small town suburbia nothing stays secret for very long.
Sexy and engaging, with characters who seem like friends and issues that make you think about marriage, satisfaction and the lines we draw, Secrets of the Suburbs is the perfect book to curl up with next to your (sweet) snoring husband.
My Book Review:
In Secrets of the Suburbs, author Alisa Schindler weaves an intriguing tale set in the suburban town of Shore Point, Long Island, that draws the reader into Lindsey's life, and the challenges that she faces when she finds herself sexually attracted to John, a married man who happens to be one of her friend's husband.
Secrets of the Suburbs is a compelling women's fiction story that easily draws the reader into the drama and emotions that come with the intricate dynamics of relationships and the issue of adultery. You can't help but get drawn into Lindsey's story as she discovers that the perfect life that she has been living may not be so perfect after all, especially when she unexpectedly develops feelings for John, who makes her feel alive and desirable for the first time in a very long time. When you live in a small suburban town and rumors abound, especially on the SOS (Secrets of the Shore) Facebook page, what do you do when you want to have a secret relationship that is scandalous and taboo?
Secrets of the Suburbs is an intriguing, sexy, and dramatic story that will easily keep you engaged and turning the pages, while providing much food for thought about the intricate dynamics of relationships, and what secretive things goes on behind closed doors in every community.
Secrets of the Suburbs is a captivating story about life, choices, decisions, regrets, happiness, family, relationships, love, and discovering what the really important things are in life.
