Zainey Peeps - let’s stop for a minute. You know I don’t lie to you or play up reviews. So I am gonna give you some real talk about this book. When I first started it, I struggled. I was so frustrated about one of the characters I wanted to throw my kindle across the room. I almost didn’t finish this book. BUT…. I am glad I did. There is a mystery element to it and the angst really does pay off in the end! If you pick this up, stick with it, believe me. Other than that, the story is funny and heart warming.


Short Synopsis (from Goodreads):

Holly Banks could not have made a worse first impression on the seemingly perfect moms in her new affluent community, the Village of Primm. Turns out wearing pink piggy pajama bottoms while dropping off her kindergartener late to the first day of school wasn’t her best look.


Not to mention Holly’s worried her husband may be having an affair, she can’t get her daughter to stop sucking her thumb, her hard-won film degree is collecting dust, and to top it all off, the power-hungry PTA president clearly has it in for her…


To make matters even worse, Holly’s natural eye for drama lands her smack-dab in the middle of a neighborhood mystery—right as her own crazy mother shows up in Primm “to help.” Through it all, Holly begins to realize her neighbors may be just as flawed as—and even wackier than—she is, leaving her to wonder: Is there such a thing as a perfect mom?

I received this book for review purposes from NetGalley. ⠀
