This is Jane Porter’s fourth novel – a special thanks to Jane and her publisher for sending these books to read, review and pass along. I love the characters in this book series and I am anxiously waiting for the next one to hit the shelves...Yes there is another one coming!!

This story catches you by surprise, in the first part of the book you want to hate the main character, Taylor. She seems shallow and only concerned with appearances, as the novel progresses you find that she is vulnerable and when forced to deal with family circumstances beyond her control she jumps in and takes control.

I enjoyed reading this book and loved the character cross over from ‘Odd Mom Out’. I know a few women fitting the mold of Taylor in the beginning of the book but know many more women willing to help and do anything for friends and family. This books makes your remember what’s important.

As a young California girl growing up in a blue collar neighborhood, Taylor Young dreamed of being popular, beautiful, and acquiring a wardrobe to die for. Not to mention marrying a handsome, successful man and living happily ever after in a gorgeous house with three wonderful children. Now, at 36, Taylor has reached the pinnacle of her dreams, but is it all about to unravel? As the new school year approaches, Taylor prepares herself for playing the perfect alpha mom: organizing class activities, fund-raising, and chairing the school auction. But the horror! Her archrival, bohemian mom Marta Zinsser, is named Head Room Mom of Taylor's daughter's fifth grade class. As tensions rise at committee meetings and school activities, the two rivals seem to be destined for a final confrontation. But as Taylor plans her next move, she is floored by a more serious blow at home-her husband has been secretly unemployed for the past six months. With her posh lifestyle crumbling, Taylor struggles to maintain her alpha image-but could Marta, who cares little about appearances, be her only true friend?
