Now the star of her own reality show, The Family Frugalicious, Maddie Michaels heads south of the border with her family to cover bargain destination weddings at a swank but budget-friendly Mexican resort. Things get a little too real when timeshare sales manager Alejandro Espinoza makes a play for Maddie one evening and ends up floating dead in the pool the next. Was it an accident or a preplanned part of the Mrs. Frugalicious storyline? When the show's producers extend the trip so she, her all-but-ex Frank, and the kids can investigate - not to mention get enough footage for a two-part, Emmy-worthy episode - Maddie fears she's in way more agua caliente than she ever bargained for.
If you like reality shows you'll like this. Although reality shows are based on reality they are unrealistic and exists in the realm of fantasy. Now that they have made Mrs. Frugalicious into a realty tv program, they have made her life an exaggeration. If you can overlook the over the top story line for the sake of the reality tv show plot, there's a chance you can enjoy the book. The characters are still likable and the plot is fast paced with lots of twist and turns. I enjoyed the story even though I rolled my eyes several times.
