"Josie Brown gives us another page-turning guilty pleasure."

 – Marin Magazine  



"Hollywood's got nothing on the cast of characters living in the bedroom community of Paradise Heights, who have the secrets, sex, money and scandal of an OK! Magazine cover story. Josie Brown is a skilled observer whose clever dialogue makes for truly entertaining reading." 

—Jackie Collins, bestselling author of
Hollywood Wives
Poor Little Bitch Girl


"Josie Brown captures the highs and lows of love, lust and marriage with heart wrenching  pathos. I'm recommending it to all my friends as the perfect beach read!"

—Lisa Rinna, actress, and author of the novel,


"The Baby Planner is as a delight.  I wondered, as I was reading it, how I every managed without a baby planner, and by the end I wondered how I ever managed without its author, Josie Brown." 

—Eileen Goudge, New York Times bestselling author of
Once in a Blue Moon  


"Josie Brown’s writing is whip-smart as well as wickedly funny, and just as you are enjoying the ride she takes you on, she shatters your heart with her insight into modern lives."

—Tatjana Soli, New York Times bestselling author of
The Lotus Eaters


"I loved this juicy-as-it-it-is-heartfelt novel about love, marriage, friendship and sharp, manicured claws. Could not put it down!";

—Melissa Senate, author,
The Secret of Joy


"Poignant and funny! Josie Brown's protagonist is strong, resilient, and unflinchingly honest: she has all the skills she needs to navigate the 'mean streets' of the gated community of Paradise Heights. A great read!" 

—Wendy Wax, author,
Magnolia Wednesdays  


“Brown proves that a story with suburban bodies can be just as suspenseful as one with dead bodies! Secret Lives of Husbands and Wives is a probing, entertaining fishbowl of married life in a well-heeled, wayward neighborhood. Loved it!”

–Stephanie Bond, author of
Body Movers
series and
Two Guys Detective Agency
