There are no secrets in a small town. For someone like Rebecca, that can get awkward.
Rebecca Meer's hometown of Ward, Nebraska, is small - so small that she can't even sneak home after a drunken girls' night without running into at least three people she knows. But she has bigger problems than her reputation. The head doctor at her fertility clinic is losing his mind, and his wild behavior could cost them the business. Her supersuccessful ex-boyfriend has blown back into town and somehow become her son's fifth-grade teacher - now her son is asking awkward questions about the end of their relationship. Rebecca can't even run the PTA's annual food drive without getting mixed up with criminals. In Eileen Curtright's astute comedy, we see just how far a stressed-out single parent will go to be the "perfect" mother.

I needed a bit of chick lit to defuse after all my horror listens of late and this fitted the bill perfectly.
A single mum is trying to survive in a small town where everyone knows your business, but work's a nightmare as her boss keeps having affairs with all the clients! If that's not enough, her ex boyfriend has arrived on the scene and is hero-worshipped by her son.
I found this book entertaining. In places I laughed out loud. I enjoy the satire surrounding testing in American schools. Sadly most of the satire is true.
"no my cup of tea. "
I have zero tolerance for people who make their own life miserable such as this main character.
"took forever to get through"
but I did finish the book. somewhere along the way it became quite funny, entertaining. the narration was good.
t00 many "f" bombs in the hour of book. Too many swear words for me.
