      Received from NetGalley in exchange for a review.I wasn't sure what to expect from this book when I requested it. I think I assumed "great, a quick, easy, light read." Well it was definitely an easy and quick read but I think the light part is up for discussion. The book centers around a group of five women who have known each other since they were teenagers (and in some cases since elementary school). Every year the women get together to spend a weekend together without their children, without [...]

      The Bitches of Brooklyn is that light and fun book that is best enjoyed on your summer/beach vacation. And that is exactly how it starts - with a mini vacation, five childhood friends meeting annually on Cape Cod for a weekend of wine, gossip and escape from their daily lives. Except this year Abby, the group's designated femme fatale, fails to show up and instead sends the girls a gift basket with a message "I’ve run off with one of your men." Initially the remaining four, Jane, Tina, Clare a [...]

      The Bitches of Brooklyn is a decent airport novel, with a one-star ending.Five lifelong friends are meeting for their annual beach weekend, a perfect premise for chicklit friendship novel, like The All-You-Can-Dream Buffet . The fifth friend, Abby, doesn't show up, sending instead a message that she can't be there because she's run off with one of their men. Each woman at the beach house pretends to consider it a joke, until it turns out that each of their partners has gone out of town unexpecte [...]

      I received this book through NetGalley for an honest review.I was terribly disappointed with this book. The premised look very promising, five friends on their annual get-a-way, but the fifth friend has run off with “one of their men.” First, I found it hard to connect to the characters. There was a lot of jumping around within the narration. In my opinion, the author should have told the story in the first person POV, giving each woman her own voice. I may have made that vital connection. I [...]

      From Rosemary Harris comes a wonderfully funny, compelling story about a group of "best friends since high school" who are jolted out of their complacencies by the one who does not show up for their scheduled annual weekend retreat. Uppermost in every woman's thoughts: Was the note a joke? Or was it real? And what about that body at the train station? Could it be their missing friend? In this highly recommended book, there are more than a few surprise twists as the women take stock . . . and dis [...]

      I found the excerpt very attractive but the book is very different.e reviews are great and sometimes that can blow up your expectationsI am into 15% of the book, and have not connected with the story or the characters.t sure whether i will plod on.cially with over a 100 other books on my wait list.Have you ever felt you are missing something when you don't like something that a lot of other people have liked?

      I like the challenge of reading new authors and, even more so, when the book is a stand alone (you know, too many series and trilogies out there).The book brings the story of 5 longtime girlfriends who always met in the summer, in a bungalow, for a weekend of drinking, gossip and fun. No family and no responsibility.Abby, Clare, Jane, Rachel and Tina.But one of them doesn't appear. Abby.In her place, a message: she ran away with the man of one of them.Everything could be a prank, until each of t [...]

      Very disappointed in this book. I felt it was choppy and disjointed There didn't seem to be any true deep emotions and I felt no affinity to the characters

      "Apologies for the short notice but I won't be making our little reunion this year. I've run off with one of your men."The Bitches Of Brooklyn is the story about five sassy women in their thirties who have been friends since high school. They keep the bonds of friendship alive throughout the years with an annual all-girls weekend on Cape Cod.

      I really, really don't like to give negative reviews. Especially one star reviews. Because, you know, I don't want to deter potential readers just because something wasn't exactly my cup of tea. Usually I'll throw a book in the DNF pile before rating one star. But the thing is, the one star option was put there for a reason, and occasionally you have to use it.The Bitches of Brooklyn starts out well enough. Five lifelong friends head out to Cape Cod for their annual weekend away, leaving behind [...]

      I always say, when asked, that I read “everything,” and I do usually mean it. My tastes are pretty wide ranging, from hard sci-fi to poetry, from literary fiction to true crime. Upon reflection, however, there are some genres that I have tended to avoid: romance (of all flavors, paranormal and otherwise), mysteries, and what is often somewhat-pejoratively referred to as “chick lit.” Not because I think poorly of those genres, but because I know myself and my tastes. And as you can see fr [...]

    • Annabel Krantz says:

      “Bitches of Brooklyn” definitely deserves it’s place in the Chick Lit genre. It revolves around a group of five women, who are supposed to spend a weekend together. When one doesn’t show up, giving only the explanation that she has ‘run off with one of their men’, the remaining four women quickly switch gears to engage in behaviour that women all over the world would recognise immediately; quiet doubt that perhaps someone you trust isn’t quite all they seem to be.The book explores [...]

      That's What Friends Are ForThis would be a perfect beach read but it’s too good a book to wait for a sunny day. Grab it now, get comfortable and just pretend you’re at the beach. You won’t regret it. Taking the basic premise from the 1949 drama ‘A Letter to Three Wives’ four childhood friends get together for their annual ladies-only reunion, however, their fifth friend sends a huge fruit basket with a note saying, ‘I’ve run off with one of your men.’ The four women who are all m [...]

      I have just finished this book and don’t really know how to rate it. It was alright but overall this reader was disappointed. The premise was promising but the execution fell short for me. There were quite a few characters and after the initial introduction, the four friends told their story (both forward and back) in alternating chapters so it is feasible that some people may get confused by these multiple points of view. The proofing errors did not help in this regard, as instead of starting [...]

      To read review and others like it check out my site at homelovebooks I think this book had a lot of potential but it just didn't end up being as great as I thought it would. I thought that the premise of the book was great, a bunch of women friends getting together for their yearly vacation, only to find out that one of this is not just a no show, but she also ran off with one of the other women's husband. I really love books that deal with friendships between women, so I really thought this boo [...]

      The issue of trust always makes for an intriguing plot focus and author Rosemary Harris knows how to take it to the limit.The five have been friends since high school and have been called bitches and witches. As they gather at a secluded Cape Cod bungalow for their annual summer all-girls weekend, things take a drastic turn when the fifth doesn’t show up. Rachel, Clare, Tina and Jane aren’t so much worried that Abby is a no show. That is until her note arrives instead. It reads - “I’ve r [...]

    • Vicki Jaeger says:

      Not quite sure how to categorize this one: Women/friends book? A bit of a whodunit? Certainly a good beach read. The women characters are pretty fleshed out, and you could see yourself having a glass of wine with them. The husbands are, at times, flat stereotypes that are used as props to move the story along.The setup is 5 high school friends meet at a beach house every year for a long weekend of catching up. The vixen of the group doesn't show, sending a fruit basket with the announcement she' [...]

      This is a well-written and entertaining read covering contemporary fiction, chick-lit, mystery and oh, so much more.The 'bitches' are childhood friends who have grown up and remain close, heading off each year for a weekend on the cape. We slowly learn bits about their pasts whilst keeping up with the present - all very cleverly done, and their individual stories all meld seamlessly into their group. When one of them fails to turn up at the weekend rendezvous sending instead a gift basket, of al [...]

      3 stars, review to come:) Five ladies who have been friends since high school and who have a yearly "gals only" summer getaway to Cape Cod find their friendship tested one summer when waiting for the fifth friend to show up at the house they rent, a fruit basket arrives at the door with a note saying "I've run off with one of your men" this of course makes all the women re-examine their marriages, friendships and their lives. The subject matter might not seem to funny but the author has some sna [...]

      Rosemary Harris is now on tour with CLP Blog Tours and The Bitches of BrooklynI just loved the way this book started off! The note really piqued my interest – who did she run off with? Whose marriage or relationship isn’t what it seems? Also, each woman started to question herself, her significant other, and their friendships in general. It was such a fabulous way to grab a reader’s attention right from the first page, and I was hooked! The story continues on with the four friends trying t [...]

This story finds five childhood friends who meet each year to have a mini-reunion/getaway, only this year one of the gals doesn't show up and leaves the other four pondering as to the reason and if she has possibly run away with one of their men.As the story progress, Harris delves into the background and personality of each woman, tying the story together with the mystery of wher [...]

      SPOILER ALERT, but not reallyWhile I enjoyed reading this book, I found the end/resolution to be rushed. The majority of the book seemed to focus on the character Abby missing and who/why she was missing. Suddenly another character in the book went missing, then BOOM the original character of interest shows up out of nowhere. While the "who" was a twist at the end of the story, I simply felt it was too rushed once they finally got "to the heart of the matter". In addition, In my personal opinion [...]

    • Kenzie says:

      My favorite part about this book was how easy it was to relate to the characters. A lot of the thoughts and feelings they had when they were questioning their fifth friend's loyalty as well as their significant other's loyalties I've experienced (especially in past relationships!), and I know a good portion of other women can agree! I also know that we all have jumped to some pretty crazy conclusions. The beginning of the book had me a little lost while I was trying to sort out the four women, b [...]

      A fantabolous story about five friends that met in grade school, did everything together from then on. Throughout school the 'Brooklyn Bitches" did it all together and as they matured, they took a weekend at the Cape to rehash their earlier days and find trouble to get into. The four women where all there awaiting Abby'S arrival only to discover she sent an expensive basket filled with wine, chocolate and, cookies with a note that she'd run off with one of their men!Rosemary Harris pens a deligh [...]

      This was part mystery and part friendship/relationship story. Five women have been friends since high school and they meet once a year for a girl's weekend at a beach house. This year is different, however, with the absence of one friend - the one least likely to be trusted. She hadn't forgotten about them though. She sent a fruit basket with the note "I've run off with one of your men." The reader then gets a more intimate look at each person's life and marriage. All the while trying to find th [...]

      Received this book through Net Galley in exchange for writing a review. The description of the book really had my anticipation up for a juicy drama filled ride. While the premise for the book was really good, I would not say I loved it as much as I thought I would. There are numerous typos that may frustrate you a bit if it's a pet peeve for you as well. At several points in the book several characters are speaking at once without clear direction on who is saying what. There are also great descr [...]

      3.5/5 stars. From the blurb: Four friends await the arrival of a fifth at a secluded Cape Cod bungalow where they spend an all-girls weekend every summer. But this year the fifth woman doesn't show. Instead she sends a note that reads - "I've run off with one of your men."When the fifth woman is nowhere to be found even after they return from the weekend, they start to wonder if she has indeed run off with one of their men or if something more sinister has happened to her. This gets them all thi [...]
