This was just an okay book. I was a little put off by all of the sexual affairs…extramarital or not. The theme of rumors and gossips was understandable. And how some people thrive on being in the middle of the knowledge of something inappropriate going on in another person’s life was pretty much factual.
There were some interesting characters and lots of conflict. The dynamics of the various relationships was constantly churning up more angst. At times it felt that if you were watching a movie about the book, it would be a farce…where one character slips out a door just as one, who shouldn’t see the person who just left, would walk in the door. It was almost a comedy of errors.
