Friends in Low Places

Ciara, Mishti, and Lauren are residents of a quaint Irish village, each with their own distinct backgrounds. Ciara appears to have a flawless life and family, while Mishti and Parth embody the quintessential immigrant success story. On the other hand, Lauren is deemed an outcast, considered “weird” due to her supposedly dysfunctional family. However, when Ciara is discovered murdered in her pristine home, the blame falls on no one.

Mishti and Ciara share a fragile friendship, strained by the presence of Lauren. Meanwhile, Lauren and Ciara’s relationship began on shaky grounds. Their interactions resembled fierce battles between pit bulls, making for a captivating read. “Dirty Laundry” fearlessly delves into the expectations surrounding motherhood and being a wife, addressing moments of “better parenting” while exploring the depths of despair caused by lack of time and self-care.

As a mother and wife, I found many of the struggles in this book highly relatable, causing me to nod in agreement. The bitterness, jealousy, animosity, and helplessness were palpable, yet balanced by humorous and unbelievable moments. This novel sheds light on the longing for personal needs, privacy, and emotional appreciation. The most intriguing aspect is delving into the characters’ backstories. Despite initially judging Lauren, I couldn’t help but feel empathy for her as her past was unveiled.

Additionally, this book offers astute observations on marriage, encompassing themes of love and deceit. Bose provides a close examination of arranged marriages and how they can deteriorate over time. Furthermore, the exploration of Indian family and culture, along with a glimpse into the mind of a social media influencer, adds unique layers to the story. While “Dirty Laundry” leans heavily on literary elements, the mystery surrounding the murder serves as a backdrop. The only drawback I found was that the ending felt rushed, and I would have welcomed an additional 50+ pages.

“Dirty Laundry” is a domestic drama depicting imperfect lives that readers will thoroughly enjoy when seeking a dose of pettiness. Overall, I had a satisfying and entertaining reading experience, and I eagerly anticipate Bose’s future works. A solid debut novel! Thank you Netgalley for my eARC of this thriller.
