    Barbara Everette, a homemaker living in a small town in Mississippi, had the perfect life. Perfect husband, perfect children, perfect house, perfect Christian Faith. She cooked and cleaned perfectly and managed all of the chores of the modern suburbanite, toting the kids, running the PTA, teaching kung-fu in the local dojo... perfectly. But perfection has a price, and the day came when Barbara snapped....

    Story

    This is not a novel but a collection of 3 short stories based around the book's heroine Barbara Everette, a very religious, gun toting, martial arts & weapons expert who sees her self as a christian homemaker but who who's antics when she goes into action is best described as a souped up Lara croft.

    The description given by Audible is basically for the first story where Babara is "taking a break from the family". Her couch potato husband main concern about her going away for a few days, is who is going to wait on him and the look after the children.

    The second story is based around a Convention and the last is a very short one based around her home home turf.

    The first is probably the best paced.

    The second drags a bit but the action kicks in at the end.

    The last well I will leave that one to you it seems more a filler.

    I am trying to understand who this book is aimed at

    If you are religious you may like it, but there is a lot of violence, gore & demonology especially near the end of each story and whilst the heroine is very religious all bets are off once the action starts she does not believe in turning the other cheek.

    If a book with a fair bit of religious overtones turns you off then you probably would not like this book.

    You might be upset because the description given by audible / the publishers does not state this is a collection of 3 short stories & not a novel.

    The Stories are linked by Barbara Everette and yes another world wide society which exists in secret to fight evil.

    The narrator is excellent.
