Baker & Taylor
A tale of love and betrayal among the gated-in communities of American suburbia finds Ohio socialite Marti Denton realizing her passionate love for John Harding in the wake of his impulsive marriage to a socially awkward newspaper reporter.

Blackwell North Amer
In the exclusive gated community of Hunting Hills, Ohio, "thin and tanned" wives live by a set of rules designed to maintain their social status, their size two figures, and their husbands' seven-figure salaries. Never mind that Marti Denton only communicates with her husband through Post-it notes left by the Krups. Or that Lisa Renfrew has to down amphetamines to keep up with her neighbor, Karen Goss, who grows sensi hash among her organic oregano.
These wives are willing to do whatever it takes including sleeping with one another's husbands (or their husbands' secretaries) to spark their perfect lives with excitement.
That is, until the unconventionally attractive, yet socially awkward outsider, Claire Stark, marries John Harding, Hunting Hill's most eligible bachelor and the secret object of Marti Denton's desire, determined to break up their marriage and win John back for herself, Marti embarks on a scheme that is undermined when an even bigger scandal rocks Hunting Hills and she finds herself turning to the one person who can offer her support: her new rival.
