"Kick off your Keds (unless you're driving) and meet a motley group of D.C. women who bond over designer shoes. It's chick lit with heart and sole." -- People magazine

Four different women. One common shoe size.

Helene Zaharis's politician husband keeps her on a tight leash and cancels her credit cards as a way of controlling her. Lorna Rafferty is up to her eyeballs in debt and can't stop her addiction to eBay. Sandra Vanderslice can't leave the house and pays her shoe bills by working as a phone-sex operator. And Jocelyn Bowen (who barely knows a sole from a heel) is a nanny for the family from hell and will do anything to get out of the house.

And a shared lust for fabulous footwear...

On Tuesday nights, these women meet to trade shoes and, in the process, form friendships that will help them each triumph over their problems--from secret pasts to blackmail, bankruptcy, and dating. Funny, emotional, and powerful, Beth Harbison's Shoe Addicts Anonymous is a perfect read for any woman who has ever struggled to find the perfect fit.

I would've rated this book higher because I truly enjoyed it, but there were writing errors/proofreading errors in several places throughout the book. She starts off talking about one person, and then winds up writing about another without any segue.

This book is about how four women come together based on the common interest of shoes. In the beginning, you learn about each character and then how they unite. However, the ending leaves a few questions unanswered. Hopefully, the sequel will have the answer.

Helene is feeling trapped in her marriage as a Senator’s wife, Lorna is swamped by eBay debt, Sandra is battling agoraphobia and Jocelyn is stuck as a nanny for a family from hell. What is the answer to all of these problems? – Shoes of course! Drawn together through their love of designer shoes and a common 7 ½ shoe size the women form a club to swap shoes and in the process find a firm friendship that helps them deal with adversity. From debt, to blackmail, bankruptcy and dating, there is nothing that the love of good friends and shoes can’t overcome.
