Are they really bitches? That depends who you ask. Four friends await the arrival of a fifth at a Cape Cod bungalow they share annually for an all-girls weekend.

Fun, flirty and filled with Harris' trademark snappy dialogue and quirky characters forced to reevaluate their marriages, their friendships and their memories, The Bitches of Brooklyn has been called "a cross between Pretty Little Liars and Sex in the City."

Five ladies who have been friends since high school and who have a yearly "gals only" summer getaway to Cape Cod find their friendship tested one summer when waiting for the fifth friend to show up at the house they rent, a fruit basket arrives at the door with a note saying "I've run off with one of your men" this of course makes all the women re-examine their marriages, friendships and their lives. The subject matter might not seem to funny but the author has some snappy & fun dialogue to keep the story moving along as well as a few mysteries to solve. Is this note a joke from their friend or will she call them laughing, saying she was just kidding? If so, why can't any of the husbands be located? When the ladies get home from their little weekend vacation they must all re examine their marriage, their lives and the secrets they have been keeping from everyone. Kind of makes you wonder if anyone is really as close with their friends and loved ones as they think they are....

Myrt's Review That's What Friends Are For! This would be a perfect beach read but it’s too good a book to wait for a sunny day. Grab it now, get comfortable and just pretend you’re at the beach. You won’t regret it. Taking the basic premise from the 1949 drama ‘A Letter to Three Wives’ four childhood friends get together for their annual ladies-only reunion, however, their fifth friend sends a huge fruit basket with a note saying, ‘I’ve run off with one of your men.’ The four women who are all married (one is living with someone) are left to figure out if their absent buddy is serious and if a fruit basket is really the appropriate way to break that kind of news. Or maybe she meant the gardener… Nobody wants to admit their relationship might be the weakest link and with no cell service at their cottage they are left to ponder their individual relationships while trying to put a brave face on for a night. But this is not a weepy woman’s drama. This is only the beginning and once they get back to the land of cell service they are still a bit hindered since some of their men are either still on preplanned trips or suddenly taken unexpected journeys. The story starts moving in unexpected directions as the four women start becoming more determined to get to the bottom of what their friend is up to. Individually and together these women are forces to be reckoned with. These characters are smart, witty and loyal to each other including their absent fifth friend. The banter between them was extremely funny and yet spoke of deep friendships. Each character had her own well developed out presence. The story itself kept the mystery going by taking clever twists and unexpected turns with it that kept you guessing up to the end. Frankly I didn’t want it to end, I wanted to hang out with these dynamic characters and go on another adventure with them. I received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

From Rosemary Harris comes a wonderfully funny, compelling story about a group of "best friends since high school" who are jolted out of their complacencies by the one who does not show up for their scheduled annual weekend retreat. Uppermost in every woman's thoughts: Was the note a joke? Or was it real? And what about that body at the train station? Could it be their missing friend? In this highly recommended book, there are more than a few surprise twists as the women take stock . . . and discover that nothing is exactly as it seems.

The issue of trust always makes for an intriguing plot focus and author Rosemary Harris knows how to take it to the limit. The five have been friends since high school and have been called names. As they gather at a secluded Cape Cod bungalow for their annual summer all-girls weekend, things take a drastic turn when the fifth doesn’t show up. Rachel, Clare, Tina and Jane aren’t so much worried that Abby is a no show. That is until her note arrives instead. It reads - “I’ve run off with one of your men.” The ladies aren’t sure what to do. Did she really run off with one of their men or is it a prank? Can they enjoy their weekend without her and not start making phone calls? The friends reevaluate their lives and what they thought they knew. Harris will have you smiling and shaking your head as she takes you on an amusing journey dealing with friendship. Her characters are eccentric, witty and likable. They are well-developed. The story moves at a steady pace, grabbing your attention at the beginning and not letting go until the very end. It’s filled with romance, fun, friendship and laughter. There’s a touch of suspense thrown for a well-balance tale. A fascinating start to a captivating new series. FTC Full Disclosure – A copy of this book was sent to me as part of the author's blog tour in hopes I would review it. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review.

I received this novel as part of CLP Blog Tour, and I really enjoyed this novel. The story begins with four best friends:  Jane, Tina, Clare, and Rachel who receive a gift basket with a note attached by their best friend, Abby, saying that she has run off with one of their men. While trying to have fun, the ladies try and guess just which one of their men Abby is with. This novel was such a fun and quick read. I loved the mystery that was kept throughout the novel. I also loved the ending and just how different the friends were in this novel. Although it was a little hard for me to relate to any of the friends, I really enjoyed this novel.
