REVIEWS

Praise for Secrets of a Shoe Addict

“This tale of four housewives who run up unexpected debt and become phone-sex operators to pay it off is a perfect fit for audio. Orlagh Cassidy milks the comedy to the hilt… [Her] timing and delivery are perfect, making this audio even more fun than the print version.”--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
 
Rave reviews for Shoe Addicts Anonymous:
"Kick off your Keds (unless you're driving) and meet a motley group of D.C. women who bond over designer shoes.  It's chick lit with heart and sole."
--People Magazine
 
"I was hooked from the first page and read it in one sitting--I couldn't put it down...Shoe Addicts Anonymous was a pleasure from start to finish."
--Marian Keyes, bestselling author of Anybody Out There?
