I feel for Amanda Sheridan. She is a stay at home mother that has put her heart and soul into her family and her home. Her husband, Rob, is going through a mid-life crisis with the young girlfriend and the fancy car. Amanda life revolved around her husband and her children. Now that her husband is out of the picture with no money to spare, she has to figure out what she is capable of doing so that she won't loose her house in the quaint suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia.

Her son, Wyatt, is a pitcher

I enjoyed this book for what it was worth, though I had a hard time relating to the characters. I liked them enough, and I wanted to keep reading, but I wasn't crazy hooked so much that I couldn't put it down.

Single in Suburbia is about three women - Amanda, Candace, and Brooke - and their respective relationships. Amanda's husband has left her and their two teenage children for a young vixen named Tiffany. Candace needs to learn to live her life for herself. Brooke has a deep secret she's been

Single in Suburbia is a novel about three unlikely women(each with a secret) who are paired together to work the concession stand at their kids little league game. Through this chance occurrence, the women form a strong friendship and a lifelong bond.

Amanda Sheridan's life is falling apart at the beginning of the novel. Her husband of almost twenty years, Rob, has just left her and her two children for a woman named Tiffany who is half his age. Not only has Rob's leaving affected the family, it

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.

Another with some of my favourite themes: women's friendship, southern setting, triumph and strength. Amanda is forced to take on cleaning her old society friends' homes, in disguise, after her husband leaves and she and her children are in financial trouble. With 2 very new friends, with troubles of their own, Amanda builds her life in a new way. An enjoyable read, 3.5 stars.
Amy
Pretty good story line. All 3 ladies were likable, and I did like how Amanda didn't spend too much time doing the whole "Poor Me", with her problems. Instead she found a way to solve her money problems, and stand on her own 2 feet. It was good to see Brook come clean about her past, to Hap. And Canadce seemed to have finally grown up, tho getting pregnant seems to have forced her to.

Clever and comical

I liked the feisty characters and cute plot. It had me smiling throughout the whole book. It's a fun read!
Diane Perry
I was laughing and crying. Wendy Wax always creates the best characters. I love little Wyatt. He broke my heart a few times. A great story.
Gloria Green
Good, insightful chick lit, with interesting characters and romantic plots.......
Sheri
This is a great mindless read. It is about a woman in the suburbs whose hubby runs off with a girl half his age and leaves her with the kids and ultimately no money. She has no true job skills, so she schemes with two other women to clean their wealthy friends' homes. Their plan is to wear costumes so their friends won't recognize them. Each character had their own set of problems and secrets. The mentality of these rich, never-have-to-work-before women is entertaining and over-the-top. Great cl ...more

if you can make me laught out loud AND cry, you get 5 stars!
Laura
Cute and predictable. A nice beach read.
Darlene
A nice fun read with women learning to be strong or just how strong they've always been but didn't know it!! Survivors surviving life and the hardknocks of everyday women. I really enjoy Wendy Wax and the way she gets right to the heart of things that women are feeling on day to day situations!!!! Karen White introduced me to Wendy Wax and I'm so thankful to her suggestion. Two completely different mindsets on women and I love them both!!!!!
Robbin
Lovely, darling! Simply smashing! A pure delight to read! In a nutshell, this one's about a suburban housewife who finds herself sans husband trying to raise two children and hang on to a house she can't afford with zero prospects for income until she and some knew friends come up with a zany idea. Throw in a steamy romance, a cooky trip to jail and little league baseball games and you've got the makings for a most excellent romantic comedy!

I read this book for my Trashy Book Club and although it is not what I normally read, it was pretty good. I live in Roswell, GA which I believe is mentioned in the book so it was fun to have all these local names/places referenced!
Dorothy Timm
I loved this book. Think "Mrs. Doubtfire" and "The Undomestic Goddess" (the book by Sophie Kinsella) combined. The way each character was well developed was good. I can't wait to read another book by Wendy Wax.

Finished this book last night and I am glad I picked this book. Thanks nwpassage for sending this to me.

I really enjoyed the Maid story and I caught myself laughing out loud at some occasions. Just what I needed.
Julie
This book is clearly crack. It was a bit clever, but not all that great. Still, it served it's purpose, which was to give me a nice break from depressing books about the misery of life.
Tara
Another book that was great fun from Wendy Wax! I may have read all of them.....hoping there are one or two left I missed.
Katie
Hilarious! To make the bills, she dresses up like a French maid and begins to learn about the dirty secrets of her neighbors.
MaryAnn
Ms Wax tends to follow my sense of humor. I did laugh out loud a few times. My only dislike is I felt the ending was rushed.
Cristin


Cute and predictable story! It all tied up a little too neatly in a bow at the end for me, but it was a fun chick-lit
Janet
Wendy writes great books with strong women from different backgrounds that come together. I enjoy reading her books!
Gabrielle
Fluffy, far-fetched with no substance. Fun to read but forgettable.
Rachael Mcdonnell
Cute story. I liked the main characters.
Fun, fluff read.
