Publisher's Summary

When her husband is offered a post at a small northwestern university, Maye Roberts is only too happy to pack up and leave the relentless Phoenix heat for the lush green quietude of Spaulding, Washington. While she loves the odd little town, there is one thing she didn't anticipate: just how heartbreaking it would be to leave her Phoenix friends behind. And when you're a childless 30-something freelance writer who works at home, making new friends can be quite a challenge. After a series of false starts nearly gets her banished from the town, Maye decides that her last chance to connect with her new neighbors is to enter the annual Sewer Pipe Queen Pageant, a kooky but dead-serious local tradition open to contestants of all ages and genders. Aided by a deranged former pageant queen with one eyebrow, Maye doesn't just make a splash; she uncovers a sinister mystery that has haunted the town for decades.

I really enjoyed this book. The main character is so regular she might be your best friend...the best friend that moved away and now struggles to just meet somebody to have lunch with, and the result of her search are BOTH disastrous and hilarious.

I really liked this book and was sad to have it end. The narrator got irritating at times but the book was just too good to care.

Is it over yet?

I kept waiting for it to get better. Never got better and it seemed to take forever to go away.
The reader did an ok job with what she had to work with, the characters, scene, and entire story was boring to the point of nausea. Speaking of points, there wasn't one.
