While I didn't love Four Wives, I did enjoy the time that I spent with Gayle, Janie, Love and Marie. It was a quick read for me. The chapters rotate viewpoints between each of the wives. I just didn't connect with any one in particular. I think that, given the different points of view and the different backgrounds and goals of each wife, Four Wives would be an excellent book club selection.
From GoodReads:
In Wendy Walker’s brilliant debut, the lives of four wives and mothers intertwine and collide in a tale of suburban angst among outrageous wealth.

On the outside, it appears as though Love Welsh, Marie Passetti, Gayle Beck and Janie Kirk lead enviable lives, with marriages to handsome, successful men; bright, happy children; and homes right out of Architectural Digest. But in the wealthy suburb of Hunting Ridge, appearances mask a deeper truth: These four wives are anything but perfect. As they try to maintain a fa├žade of bliss, behind closed doors they each face their own crises—infidelity, dissatisfaction, self-doubt. As springtime draws to an end, doors are both opened and closed and the women come face to face with the most difficult and heartbreaking challenge of their lives—to reconcile their innermost desires with the lives that each of them has chosen.
