Nothing is more fun and yet concerning to those watching me than when I laugh and sob at the same time. Wendy Wax accomplished this in her book Single in Suburbia. It was a hilarious description of a heart wrenching expression that brought on this fit of giggles and tears. Single in Suburbia had me chuckling almost every chapter; pair that with the character Amanda Sheridan who really knows how to put a cheating husband in his place, and you’ve got a book I could hardly put down.
Single in Suburbia follows jilted wife Amanda, replacement wife Brooke, and divorcee Candace as they help Amanda keep her house after her husband lost everything. In order to keep Amanda’s family afloat, they start Maid For You, a cleaning service specializing English speaking French maids after Amanda discovers that being a stay at home mom does not dazzle prospective employers. She, Brook, and Candace dress in wigs and gaudy make-up as they clean, snoop, and realize that no family is as perfect as it seems.
