Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Meet Rose Feller, a thirty-year-old high-powered attorney with a secret passion for romance novels. She has an exercise regime she's going to start next week, and she dreams of a man who will slide off her glasses, gaze into her eyes, and tell her she's beautiful. She also dreams of getting her fantastically screwed-up, semi-employed little sister to straighten up and fly right.

Meet Rose's sister, Maggie. Twenty-eight years old and drop-dead gorgeous. Although her big-screen stardom hasn't progressed past her left hip's appearance in a Will Smith video, Maggie dreams of fame and fortune — and of getting her big sister on a skin-care regimen.

These two women, who claim to have nothing in common but a childhood tragedy, DNA, and the same size feet, are about to learn that they're more alike than they'd ever imagined. Along the way, they'll encounter a diverse cast of characters — from a stepmother who's into recreational Botox to a disdainful pug with no name. They'll borrow shoes and clothes and boyfriends, and eventually make peace with their most intimate enemies — each other.

Review:

"The book is too long and loses energy by the end. In Her Shoes will make readers laugh and perhaps cry, but it's rough around the edges." USA Today

Review:

"Weiner follows up Good in Bed with this engaging tale....Weiner's second novel is every bit as enjoyable and moving as her first." Booklist

Review:

"Weiner's vivid characterizations and her light touch with heavy topics make this...an entertaining romp through family battles and toxic relationships." People

Review:

"In Her Shoes is inelegant but weirdly irresistible. Weiner's not shy about resorting to the occasional cliché...but she also has a fine eye for detail and a knack for making supporting characters come convincingly to life." Judith Warner, The Washington Post

Review:

"A wonderful contemporary fairy tale....Weiner embroiders serious matters with threads of humor to produce a novel full of memorable characters and situations....Here's a novel that satisfies on many levels." Library Journal

Review:

"If chick lit is indeed a genre, Weiner is creating a smarter, funnier subspecies....[She] is a sharp observer of the frustrations of blood ties." The Philadelphia Inquirer

Synopsis:

Now in paperback — the New York Times bestseller from the acclaimed author of Good in Bed!
