Fiction • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

A trip to Las Vegas to chaperone the school band lands three suburban housewives in scalding water. Abbey, Loreen, and Tiffany each find that their indiscretions refuse to stay in Vegas, and reparations must be made in Maryland. Orlagh Cassidy's bright, youthful voice trips lightly through the story, giving each woman a clear identity through nuanced vocal modulation and tonal variation. Her pacing maximizes the comic timing provided in the text. Cassidy shifts gears seamlessly to render more tender moments and brings an edge of sharpness when Abbey's family faces a thug's threats and when Tiffany's husband crosses the line from boorishness to emotional abuse. Despite the lightness of the plot, we hate to hear the story end. R.L.L. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2009]
