They did it with love
Morgenroth, Kate.
Adult Fiction MORGENR

Comments  Summary  Reviews

From Publishers' Weekly:

Agatha Christie meets Desperate Housewives in Morgenroth's smashing, Stepfordesque mystery. At the heart of the novel is Manhattan bookshop clerk Sofie, whose father's death has left her wealthy and in need of a change of pace. Her husband suggests moving to posh Greenwich, Conn., where she falls in with a group of bored, bitchy and smart housewives who gossip, drink too much and occasionally cat around with each other's husbands. When young trophy wife Julia is found swinging from a tree in her front yard, the obvious conclusion is suicide-but both cops and neighbors suspect murder, and mystery addict Sofie sets out to do a little sleuthing. Morgenroth (Saved) places Sofie precisely in her contrasting urban and suburban settings with elegant prose, from "a tangle of dark grey branches" in Central Park to maple leaves that "drifted down-a bright autumn red-leaving a carpet on the ground like a huge pool of blood." The character development and local color are so strong that this would be a hit even without the dazzling surprise ending. (Jan.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
