Secret Lives of Husbands and Wives Final

SECRET LIVES OF HUSBANDS AND WIVES

“Already touted as the perfect summer beach read, this character-driven sometimes steamy book can best be described as the offspring of an affair between Desperate Housewives and a Jennifer Weiner novel….A quick look into the sometimes catty world of wealth where priorities get shifted, friendships get broken and marriages, like their mansions, get rearranged. It was light and fluffy with some excellent dialogue.”
—GoodHousekeeping.com

“Fans of DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES will love this story.. The quick pace and snappy dialogue make this a fun read.” —Romantic Times 

“Brown's novel offers an enjoyable take on suburban California family life, complete with mommy cliques, rebel teenagers, and, of course, lots of adultery. This is a town where kids have names like Tanner, McGuyver, and Temple; women meet daily at Starbucks to measure themselves against each other, and facials and pedicures are scheduled around school pickups. These women, inside their fishbowl, are fun to peer in on, and the momentum of Brown's writing and plot keeps the pages turning. —Booklist



THE BABY PLANNERThe Baby Planner Vellum Final
“Brown takes baby mania to its illogical, hysterical extreme in this bubbly romp. But what begins as a light foray into Bugaboo country turns into something bigger than a satire of status-obsessed Bay Area yummy mummies as Brown takes a dark look at the fears of parenthood and family, with Katie's heartbreaking longing for a child unveiling a disturbing reality about her marriage and family. Still, the message from the somber realities is one full of hope: love makes a family, commitment keeps it together.”—Publishers Weekly
