Publisher's Summary

For Kate Klein, suburbia's been full of unpleasant surprises. Her once-loving husband is hardly ever home. The supermommies on the playground routinely snub her. Her days are spent carpooling, and at night, most of her orgasms are of the do-it-yourself variety. So when a fellow mother is murdered, Kate finds that the unsolved mystery is one of the most interesting things to happen in Upchurch. She launches an unofficial investigation with the help of two friends and discovers the secrets and lies behind the town's placid picket-fence facade - and the choices and compromises all modern women make as they navigate between independence and obligation, small towns and big cities, being a mother and having a life of one's own.

Terrific Book!

This is a marvelous book -- a spot on satire of motherhood in suburbia -- laugh out loud funny -- and a great story about friendship, husband/wife and mother/daughter relationships. There's even a mystery. All in all, you can't go wrong with this book. Thank you Amazon for having the unabridged version.
