Down to Earth Mother Meets Some Crazies

This was a FUN listen! I’m the mom of five and grandma of ten, been both the professional working mom and a stay at home mom. So, this story of Kate Connelly and her new baby, Laura was a hoot for me. Questioning each new decision and whether Laura was on target with each milestone, made me want to wrap this sweet new mom in my arms and tell her that she was doing just fine. The snooty, know-it-all mothers in the new mommy club who signed their babies up for swim lessons before they were even born cracked me up, too. And the world is full of such women . . . who have to act like they have it all together, when they don’t have any more a clue than sweet Kate . . . Doing more damage than they can ever imagine to themselves and their stressed-out offspring. The story is well written, funny, yet it has some good lessons and family values. I didn’t figure out who the murderer was either. Great conclusion! I will definitely listen to more in the series.

Ok

A little rough in the beginning, but once it gets going it's OK. Early discussions with the perp gave it away, although I had the motive wrong.

Okay, but too much baby talk for me.

If you've recently had a baby, you will probably enjoy this story. It was a bit hard to keep all of the main charactors' thoughts separated because of the inner speculations. It wasn't bad and I did finish it, but this wasn't my kind of story.

Can't decide if narration helped or hurt

Oh ugh!!!! This book, which I only got part way through, maybe an hour or 2, set my teeth on edge. Nothing pleasant or relatable, I didn't care about characters; the number of times the author used the word "mommy" was truly annoying. The inner angst of the main character reminded me of middle school girls drama. I didn't expect sophisticated, but I did expect entertaining, maybe a laugh, this has very few redeeming qualities. Maybe if you enjoy soap operas this would be better.

OK read

Not the best narration. Very bad character voices and extremely squeeky voice. Story was OK but dragged out and inconsistent in character interaction. I would not recommend it to my book club.
