Thin Rich Bitches

Book Description

An uproarious romp through the minefield of female one-upmanship! 

Leaving her cheating husband in Boston with the paralegal he impregnated, Pippin Snowe and her son move to a ramshackle farmhouse in the exclusive community of Dover, Massachusetts. Pippin finds employment with a local architect, designing kitchen renovations for wealthy Dover women who treat her as they treat the rest of the hired help. Concluding that social climbing is just another sport that she is no good at, Pippin opens a country club for dogs that offers services that the Dover women didn't know they wanted until they found out that admission was required and spaces were limited. 

With irreverent wit, Thin Rich Bitches is a humorous chronicle of one woman's quest to find her place within a community of people who are more blessed physically and financially, while learning valuable lessons about life, love, competition, and canine couture.

Book Review

I downloaded this book as it was free on one of my newsletters, and I am so glad I did. The author makes you laugh as she puts her main character through an absolutely life altering situation which would be full of stress and strife in the real world. It brings together a mother -son duo who move from their existing life post divorce to a new one in a rambling old house left to the mother by her dead aunt. The house brings with it its own share of problems including farm animals such as goats, and dogs who have had the run of he place, problem toilets and a barn which loses its roof in the middle of preparations for a major party.

Thoroughly enjoyed the antics of the formidable Pippin as she makes way for a career and finds friends in a town that is not exactly without its own quirks. Love the way everything worked out in the end with the biggest liability she owned turning into an amazing asset. If you enjoy books which make you think about ordinary things in a new light, you will enjoy this read.
