Book Review - Domestic Secrets by Rosalind Noonan

Best friends Rachel Whalen and Ariel Alexander are friends for over a decade. They overcome many of life's tragedies and happiness together. Polar opposites, Rachel is a down to earth mom who owns a hair salon while Ariel is a promiscuous former TV starlet who still dreams of being in the spotlight again. Together with the ups and down of single motherhood, they take on suburbia moms of Timbergrove, Oregon. However, tragedies strikes and tears the two families apart. Will Rachel and Ariel's friendship be able to survive or will their bonds forever be broken? If you can't trust your friends and family, who can you trust?

The story is a interesting read about fragile bonds between friends and parenthood with parents and children, along with the managing the perception of neighbors and friends. The story starts off interesting but the tragedy happens around the last third of the book. I believe the event should have happened earlier for it to really have an effect. It starts off slowly and builds then Boom! the horrible tragedy and the coping behinds for the last couple of pages that seems a bit of a mish mash. A good read but leaves readers wanting more.
