Synopsis from Goodreads: Sophie O’Neill left behind an envy-inspiring career and the stressful, competitive life of big-city Chicago to settle down with her husband and young son in a small Texas town. It seems like the perfect life with a beautiful home in an idyllic rural community. But Sophie soon realizes that life is now too quiet, and she’s feeling bored and restless.

Then she meets Margot Banks, an alluring socialite who is part of an elite clique secretly known as the Hunting Wives. Sophie finds herself completely drawn to Margot and swept into her mysterious world of late-night target practice and dangerous partying. As Sophie’s curiosity gives way to full-blown obsession, she slips farther away from the safety of her family and deeper into this nest of vipers.

When the body of a teenage girl is discovered in the woods where the Hunting Wives meet, Sophie finds herself in the middle of a murder investigation and her life spiraling out of control.

My Review: I'm a little torn on this one. This is one scandalous, salacious, entertaining book and it kept me reading. But at the same time I didn't like the main character at all and she never really developed at all over the course of the story. She also just made really stupid choices and I just couldn't believe them. That being said, it was very well written and I think a lot of people will enjoy it, it just wasn't for me.
