When something is so carefully balanced, one domino falling can send the rest of them crashing down surprisingly quickly. The worst of all is when her best friend lies to her about an opportunity for her son and then defends herself. Before she knows it, Shannon is left virtually friendless- and paying hundreds of dollars more for childcare.
These were serious topics, but Shannon's sense of humor found me laughing out loud. I also found myself screaming at the screen at several points; warning: don't give someone a first kiss when you might be a little drunk. I also gasped after I read one scene; I think most parents will too.
This definitely has a happy ending, but not everything is wrapped up in a tidy bow. Perfect, because neither are most people's lives.
Recommended for fans of baseball and chick lit.
