Happy BOOK BIRTHDAY to... MOM GENES by Hilary Grossman - REVIEW!

Hi there!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.

With regular life put on hold, a lot of folks have had more than a monkey wrench thrown into their daily lives.  Many have had things completely put on hold, and for some the online option just doesn't work as well...good thing that's NOT the case for books!  Hence, today's spotlight and mini review featuring the latest release to the Forest River PTA Moms series from author Hilary Grossman.  It features, well, much as the series title suggests, but let's introduce this installment first, and we'll get to the rest.  Today's BOOK BIRTHDAY celebrant is on deck...

Forest River PTA Moms series, Book 2
Hilary Grossman

About the book...
Big Little Lies meets Class Mom

The meddling moms of Forest River live for a good scandal. Speculation surrounding Claire Conroy’s sex life has fueled the rumor mill for years. Now, when Claire returns home from a trip to Italy separated from her husband of thirteen years, the imaginations of the Lululemon-clad ladies’ who lunch spin into overdrive. As the gossipmongers create their own scandalous backstory for the separation, blaming Claire’s infidelity, she learns the hard way just how mean mommies can be.

Eager to begin her new life as a single mom of three Claire puts her trust in Jackie Martin, the president of the PTA, to help tell her truth and free her of the false accusations and scandal. But the plan backfires, and Claire is put further into the spotlight when an embarrassed mom declares war.

As Claire dusts off her resume, fights the daily urge not to strangle her ex-husband and his new girlfriend, and dips her toes into the dating world one dud at a time will she find the happiness she craves or succumb to the pressure of the mean girls?

Remember high school?
Remember all the little cliques and gossip, head games and sad tricks, backstabbing and face-to-face lying? add on a decade or two and've got the PTA mom's you'd never hope to be a part of.   Don't get me wrong, there were a few among them that had their moments, but they were short lived as pretty much none of them had the guts, the hutzpah, the backbone to stand up for themselves, and away from the pack.  I guess it never really gets THAT much easier...when you always want to be one of the "cool" crowd.  Guess that's also why as much as I got the drama of the story, I was also so over it from the get go.

If not for Claire trying to wrangle her way clear and then through this group of pretenders, wannabes, and vindictive mothers, I would have run screaming from the pages.  Her will to get through it all and smile on the other side is what brought be along for the ride. Frankly, if I was a character in the story, I would have shut them down long before things got so sticky because not getting your way sometimes (ladies) is a way of life!  You can't control everything and every one, despite your desire to.  You don't get to say what your truth is and make it stick when in reality, it's so far from the truth that it's laughable.  Ugh!  Sorry, I really just wanted to slap a few of them upside the head and shout GROW UP.

In the end, it is what it is, and while some will be cheering for the "cheerleaders", others will be backing the supposed underdogs.  Which side of the bake sale will you be on?
