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.

    "Fun romp"

    While there were times when I found the storyline to drag a little bit, and felt the characters a little too comical, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The narrator did an excellent job with the voices, and we all know that a bad narrator can do to an audiobook.
    The reader/listener lucks out with this one.

    "Don't think I'll make it to the end of this one"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Several hours in and still waiting for the story to begin. The narrator is so wrong for this book. Amanda Ronconi could possibly have made this book a more enjoyble listen. I've just listened to 9 Molly Harper books in a row so maybe I've been spoiled for anything else...


    How could the performance have been better?

    A more lively narrator.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    "Painful"

    This book was so painful to listen to that I couldn't finish it. The main character is full of overly descriptive vitriol that fills up the majority of the book. Actual interaction between characters is sparse and instead the reader is subjected to a run on commentary about the flaws of all the characters, from the POV of the main character. Maybe it gets better later but I won't find out. If I could return this book, I would.

    "Laugh Out Loud Funny"

    Incredibly funny. Well written and well read. The plot gets a little fantastic at the end, which takes away from the enjoyment a bit. I'd still recommend it as a book you want to hear and an author you'd want to hear more from.

    "Way unrealistic"

    I am a very uncritical consumer of beach read-type audiobooks, and am thus used to a fair amount of over the top scenarios and ditto reactions. While this book is well written and the audio version well read, too, the story is just too unrealistic to truly matter to me. The end is satisfying though, and, given the unrealistic premise, it makes sense. Still, I didn't really enjoy it for great parts of the plot.

    "There's a slight chance I might be going to hell"

    This was a very silly story with extremely unbelieveable characters and situations. I found myself groaning with each of the more ridiculous situations she got into. This was really a waste of time.
