No husbands allowedOnly minutes after Abbie Elliot and her three best friends step off of a private helicopter, they enter the most luxurious, sumptuous, sensually pampering hotel they have ever been to. Their lavish presidential suite overlooks Monte Carlo, and they surrender: to the sun and pool, to the sashimi and sake, to the Bruno Paillard champagne. For four days they're free to live someone else's life. As the weekend moves into pulsating discos, high-stakes casinos, and beyond, Abbie is transported to the greatest pleasure and release she has ever known.
What happened last night?
In the morning's harsh light, Abbie awakens on a yacht, surrounded by police. Something awful has happened--something impossible, unthinkable. Abbie, Winnie, Serena, and Bryah are arrested and accused of the foulest crime imaginable. And now the vacation of a lifetime becomes the fight of a lifetime--for survival. GUILTY WIVES is the ultimate indulgence, the kind of non-stop joyride of excess, friendship, betrayal, and danger that only James Patterson can create.

I love a book that pulls you into the story with something different that stands out, and then keeps you wrapped in it with suspense and intrigue. This book did all that and more for me, and it was on audio.
Usually I have a hard time concentrating on the audio versions... call it short attention span... but this book held my attention from the start.
Great narrating, and love the use of french accents... so cute.
The drama and suspense pick up right away, I mean a woman may spend the rest of her life in jail... and the things she goes through, while remembering what her life was... how can you not get pulled in?!
Imagine how frightening it would be to be incarcerated in a foreign country. I know, right?!
I was surprised by the ending too.... definitely not how I thought it would turn out. Glad it did though, made it so much sweeter!
I definitely want to read this one again in print. It's worth it!
