Amazon Editorial Review

Best friends Kate Thompson and Dani Strauss are contemporary moms who are struggling to keep it all together. Kate, a devoted wife and mother of two boys, seeks answers in self-help guides, while Dani, a wise-cracking, skeptical attorney, navigating the new waters of joint custody and the single life, looks for the solution in glossy magazines. When fate drops a million dollars into Kate’s hands, the girls impulsively take it on the road to get the "time to themselves" their busy lives never seem to allow.

They head to New York City—the land of fabulous clothes, expensive makeovers, sexy men, and unlimited adventure—and it doesn’t disappoint. But fulfilling their fantasies also offers a surprising perspective—and suddenly their lives back home don’t look so bad. In the end, a renewed Kate and Dani recognize that they’re not the only moms who could use a break, and The Mommy Fund is born.

My Review: I read this one a few weeks ago and forgot to journal it. This was better than I thought it would be. Sometimes this type of book becomes preachy or so cliche it becomes tedious. These two moms, one happily married and one happily divorced, they seem very different, but deep down they agree they want to be good mothers while still taking time for themselves.
