My Review:
ALL THE DIFFERENCE left me reeling.  I was immediately drawn in by each one of the characters stories.  Rouda masterfully wove the stories of these compelling and, at times, ruthless women into a novel that kept you turning pages. 

Adultery, lies, friendship, marriage and murder mixed with the one thing that made all the difference to these women in their lives is the center of this novel.

Rouda may have left small clues throughout the book, but I was constantly thrown for a loop while reading this novel.  Then came the very last paragraph and I may, quite literally, have held my breath the whole time I was reading is all I can say. 

Pick up your copy of ALL THE DIFFERENCE to read an original novel with depth and spunk.  I rate this book 4 stars! 

Book Description via Amazon:
Publication Date: March 19, 2012

From the bestselling author of HERE, HOME, HOPE, comes a novel of suspense and choices, with a nod to the best of Susan Isaacs's tales of suburban murder.

Once again, everything isn't what it seems in the wonderful suburb of Grandville. ALL THE DIFFERENCE is the story of three women whose lives become entangled by the choices they make and how, ultimately, one of them turns to murder to achieve her goals.

Roommates Laura and Angie couldn't be more different. Laura is a local celebrity, the television anchor who is motivated to move out of small-time media markets and on to the big time, no matter the cost. Meanwhile, Angie, a luckless waitress, spends her time waiting for Mr. Right to save her from temporary jobs and a life spent making bad choices.

On the other side of town, Ellen abandons her life as a successful fundraiser for that of an isolated housewife in the country estate she shares with her husband, whose affairs become increasingly hard to ignore. When the city’s gossip columnist, Maddie, and restaurant reviewer, Dixon, become involved in the mystery, the unlikely duo stir up more than they intended. But will anyone be able to stop the next murder?

With her signature compassion and wit, Kaira Rouda once again takes readers on an entertaining journey into the heart of women’s lives in suburbia - this time with adultry and murder in the mix.
