Description
After a whirlwind overseas romance, down-home girl Claire Stark has moved to her new husband's hometown, Hunting Hills, Ohio, where the men earn seven figures, the women wear size two, and if everything isn t absolutely perfect, you re expected to pretend it is.

But Claire's having trouble pretending. For one thing, John's previous girlfriend still lives here and with all the bed-hopping in Hunting Hills, she may not be Claire's only potential rival. For another, Claire's constantly hearing vicious gossip including rumors about herself. And though she also misses her reporting career, John isn t thrilled with the idea of her working at the local paper. She might just have to be satisfied mingling with the Hunting Hills moms, who like to borrow their daughters Seven jeans and their sons Ritalin.

That is, until scandal threatens to shatter the stylish facade of this exclusive gated community and behind the salon highlights and sunlamp tans, true colors start shining through.
