AVID reader; very critical. My reviews don't repeat the book's description, but are why I enjoyed the book and why I think you will.

    The Good House tells the story of Hildy Good, who lives in a small town on Boston's North Shore. Hildy is a successful real-estate broker, good neighbor, mother, and grandmother. She's also a raging alcoholic. Hildy's family held an intervention for her about a year before this story takes place - "if they invite you over for dinner, and it’s not a major holiday," she advises "run for your life" - and now she feels lonely and unjustly persecuted. She has also fooled herself into thinking that moderation is the key.

    Rhonda Morrison says: "What a great book, Hildy is a great character!"
    "Great Way to Put Yourself To Sleep at Night"

    Story

    This was 10 hours of babbling and town gossip by an alcoholic, over-the-hill, has-been real estate agent. Nothing I can't get at family gatherings. The woman who narrated it was annoying at times—you could hear every cigarette she ever smoked.
