The Infidelity Pact by Carrie Karasyov

An ill-conceived pact between four L.A. housewives to each indulge in a year-long extramarital affair leads to freedom, revenge, social climbing, sex, drugs, and murder in this hilarious and biting solo debut by a coauthor of The Right Address and Wolves in Chic Clothing.
To address their general malaise, four privileged L.A. housewives each make a pact to have a year-long extramarital affair. Their husbands are declared off-limits and the friends agree to confide only in each other (the theory being that dalliances cause trouble in large part because word gets out). And so our ladies embark—two eagerly, one cautiously, and one very reluctantly—on perilous romantic paths that lead to all manner of adventure and intrigue. As the year progresses, secrets are revealed, betrayals pile up, desires are brought to light, lies are told, and each woman is forced to face up to the truth of who she is and the choices that have brought her here. When the women discover that a local gossip has been spying on their conversations and is threatening to reveal their secrets to the whole town, how far will they go to stop him? And how well do these friends really know each other anyway?
With a wry eye and an insider’s view of L.A.’s wealthy and occasionally desperate housewives, The Infidelity Pact is at once poignant and hilarious, a book that is sure to be talked about on both coasts—and everywhere in between.

This book was AMAZING. I will admit, it did start off a bit slow so I was skeptical. But when it picked up, it picked up so fast that my head spun! This is definitely a book you should read when you have a lot of time though, not because it is long, but because you won't want to stop reading! Very original story! Reminiscient of Desperate Housewives but soooo much better, imo.

I was intrigued by the salacious cover but skeptical. Would this just be a trashy beach read? No. The story starts out with the revelation that the local gossip columnist 'we learn who he is later', Anson Larrabee, is dead, in the middle of Eliza Gallahue's party. Then it is all a flashback to find out what happened. We see that Eliza and her friends Victoria, Helen and Leelee all made a pact to cheat on their husbands for one year and not tell anyone. The only person who finds out is Anson Larrabee. Then it becomes sort of a mystery about what happened to him. I found the characters all really well drawn--Victoria was the tough one, Helen the spacey one, Eliza the good girl and Leelee the girl next door. The ending was truly unexpected and I loved learning the backgrounds of these ladies and what made them even entertain the idea of cheating. This is a fun summer read but one that will stay with you on a deeper level. I highly recommend it.
