Publisher's Summary

Ever have one of those days where life just plain sucks? Welcome to my last three months - ever since I caught my can’t-be-soon-enough-ex-husband cheating with his paralegal. I’m 35 years old, and I’ve lost my NYC apartment, my job, my money, and frankly, my dignity.

But the final heartache in the suck sandwich of my life? My great-aunt Maggie died. The only family member who’s ever gotten me.

Even after death, though, she’s helping me get back up again. She’s willed me the keys to a house in the burbs of all places and dared me to grab life by the family jewels. Well, I’ve got the vise grips already in hand (my ex should take note), and I’m ready to fight for my life again.

Too bad that bravado only lasts as long as it takes to drive into Huckleberry Hills. And see the house.

There are 47 separate HOA violations, and I feel them all in my bones. Honestly, I’m surprised no one’s “accidentally” torched the house yet. I want to, and I’ve only been standing in front of it for five minutes. But then, my grumpy neighbor tells me to mow the lawn first and I’m just...done. Done with men too sexy for their own good and done with anyone telling me what to do.

First rule of surviving the burbs? There is nothing that YouTube and a glass of wine can’t conquer. Well, unless it’s your hot neighbor.

Love this Story

Story evolved through deception, heartbreak, loss, and letting go of the future you had planned and worked hard for. Finally learning to say no to everyone and start making her own decisions. Loved the HEA and the narration.

Enjoyed this story

I really enjoyed the story, the characters are easy to get relate to. I wish there would have been just a little bit more after they made up like how the divorce turned out , how work was when it all came out . I’m not gonna lie the narrator to me was very monotone . She sounded sad, it made it a little hard to concentrate on the book at first .I really did like the characters and I really enjoyed the book . Kinda want to meet aunt Margaret! I Believe there will be more I can’t wait to see what happens with Sarah with mom and dad I want next mom and dad they sound like a hoot!
