Summary:  Are they really bitches? That depends who you ask...Rachel, Clare, Tina and Jane are four friends awaiting the arrival of a fifth at a secluded Cape Cod bungalow where they spend an all-girls weekend every year since reconnecting at a reunion. But the fifth woman doesn't show.
Instead she sends a note that reads -
"I've run off with one of your men."

Has she? Is it a prank? Do they run for the phone or try to enjoy the weekend without her? Fast, funny and filled with Harris' trademark snappy dialogue you'll recognize friends and maybe a little of yourself as the women are forced to reevaluate their friendships, their marriages and their memories.

Inspired by a classic Hollywood film, The Bitches of Brooklyn is for every woman who's ever had a best friend and wondered...is she really??

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.
