When Denver stay-at-home mom Becky Montgomery caught her husband of 20 years in their bed with another woman, she never dreamed her three children would blame her for the resulting divorce. Feeling like maternal failures, she and two friends (feisty PI Sam and No-One's-Accused-Me-Of-Being-Mother Teresa) form the Bad Mothers Club in order to deal with their various child-related heartaches more positively.
When her ex-husband, Jack, is accused of murdering Becky's first post-divorce date, the Bad Mothers set out to prove his innocence, but only for the sake of her children. These Bad Mothers have faced everything from terrible twos and sleep deprivation to rebellious teens and heartbreak - they're not about to let a mere murderer stop them from winning the Worst Mother of the Month award.

This was a really nice surprise. The plot was well developed and had a nice pace. I even thought the characters were likable and believable. I almost gave it 3 stars but I really liked this one. However, the characters were a little bit too perfect. Everyone was good looking, smart, and perky. The 17 year old daughter really got on my nerves. I'm not around seventeen year olds very often but she behaved like a 13 year old. She constantly whined and put demands on her mother that were very unrealistic.
The plot and storyline were good. The narrator had the most obnoxious voices, I seriously got headaches from listening to her! But, I did so I could hear the end of the story.
I likes the whole series idea. A bad mother's club in the very best way possible.
The Housewife's Assassin Handbook is similar but a little more explicit.
Why don't you have the rest of the series in Audio? I hate getting a first one and liking it to only be shut out of the series.
