About Mothers Ruined
Dottie Harris has a knack for stumbling into chaotic situations, gin & tonic in hand!
When Dottie and Henry Harris move to their new house, Dottie’s only desire is to make friends in the neighbourhood. But Dottie, just home from delivering her third child, is struggling to adjust to village life. Recently promoted Henry travels a lot, and the neighbours aren’t very welcoming (although that could be because when Dottie first met them, she had dyed her children green).
So when Dottie accidentally hears her neighbours’ conversations over her baby monitor, she can’t help but use the information in her quest to build new friendships.
Of course, eavesdropping never ends well, and when Dottie discovers that two of her neighbours are having an affair, she’s horrified. Worse still, the locals are convinced she’s the one who’s doing the cheating. It’s up to Dottie to clear her name and expose the real cheat—in her signature haphazard way!
I adore Dottie, she makes it difficult to find fault with her intentional and unintentional antics. I empathize with her plight being a newbie in the neighborhood, therefore I cut her a break by forgiving the manner allowing her to bust the tight inner neighbor circle. Admittedly her ‘discovery’ was very amusing and educational as we soon discover, talk about domino effect. I’m comforted to know no matter what her bestie Jane will always have her back and remain BFF’s infinitely.
Fun read, fast pace, leaving you smile. This book is part of a series, however, it is absolutely fine as a stand alone read.
