5/5 chickadees singing! I received a copy of this book and am voluntarily reviewing it. This was a great book! I read it all in about a day even though I have two young kids at home; it was that engaging. It hasn’t been a big deal before that Democrat Erin, who is working to save the planet, is married to Republican Jack. But when Jack gets his own talk show in an extremely conservative news station, Erin has to bear the brunt of it from their Democratic community. Even worse, she loses her job and Jack wants her to be a stay at home mom while she’s itching to continue her career. Even the kids are divided! 8 year old Michael loves the stuff dad can buy them now and that he’s a TV star. 13 year old Jessica can’t believe who her dad has become.
I definitely got annoyed with the characters at times. Erin didn’t really stop and try to talk some sense into Jack and Jack went completely off of the deep end. That didn’t affect my enjoyment of the story, though. It was fast-paced and engaging. It was also very well-written. There was no drag to the story and it felt like there were no wasted words. There’s a whole interesting cast of secondary characters in their community, too. I would recommend this book to any fans of women’s fiction, as long as they don’t take their politics too seriously!
