Publisher's Summary

Loreen Murphy hadn't meant to hire a male prostitute in Las Vegas. It was all just a big, stupid, expensive misunderstanding. Abbey Walsh never intended anyone to find out about the fact that she's being blackmailed. As a minister's wife, her sordid past was supposed to be a secret. Tiffany Vanderslice Dreyer never dreamed that she'd find herself up to her eyeballs in credit card debt from one mad moment of a shopping spree. She's an upstanding wife and mother with the perfect marriage...right?Secrets of a Shoe Addict is the story of three women who bond together when they find themselves in more than one kind of trouble. It's the story of how sometimes, you hide a secret side that can get you in - and out - of dire straits. It's about romance, friendship, kids, revenge, affairs, and most of all a love of all the well-heeled things in life.


What the Critics Say

"Kick off your Keds (unless you're driving) and meet a motley group of D.C. women who bond over designer shoes. It's chick lit with heart and sole." (People Magazine)
"Readers will root for these four plucky women. Like the designer shoes that pepper its pages, this book is pleasing and stylish. This frothy confection is sure to fly off the shelves this summer." (Booklist)
"Harbison creates vivd, convincing characters and handles them well. Reading this novel is like eating a slice of cake." (Publishers Weekly)

A Fun listen

Would you listen to Secrets of a Shoe Addict again? Why?

Secrets of a Shoe Addict is a spin-off from the Shoe Addicts Anonymous, still featuring Sandra, the sex-phone operator. This particular novel starts off in Las Vegas with a new cast including Sandra's sister Tiffany, where each of the women get themselves into financial trouble. So unfolds the plot, in which Sandra recruits all the women to become phone-sex operators. Of course, in coming together to pay off their debts, this group of women become much closer friends and experience life-changing events together.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Secrets of a Shoe Addict?

I love the pace of Harbison's writing, and found myself wishing I was right there with the women at the casinos having a great time and shopping in those many exotic boutiques. I also love how she incorporates pop-culture throughout the novel, making it a fun read regardless if the material is time-sensitive or not. Sandra's blind dates were what really made me laugh out loud. The ventriloquist was a little out there, but the Chuck E Cheese date really got me rolling. And really, who dresses up like a clown to have sex? Some of the phone-sex operator content was pretty dead-on, and I wonder if the author ever did phone sex for a short amount of time or she must have really done great research.
