I marry a gorgeous executive, have a baby, lose all the weight (most of it)--and move to a fine house in the suburbs with a welcoming new church. Wait--did I say welcoming? One teeny waaah! and new mothers and their crying babies are exiled to a separate room. At least there's some enlightening conversation. Like about my husband and issues I didn't even know about!

The mother-in-law from hell was no joke. Tracey finds herself against a wall when her husband Ryan will not speak up every time Queen Elizabeth be little her at any time or place. It didn't matter how hard she tired to do the right thing Queen always looks for the bad in it.

at first I didn't think I would be able to finish this book because the main character was driving me crazy, but things turned around and it is turning into a good book.

I like that the Tracey managed to accept herself and also help her MIL realize that her actions weren't helping any one.

It was an enjoyable book and a fairly quick read
