Back in the burbs review

“…everyone needs love. With someone who loves them back just as much.”

Mallory Martin, soon-to-be divorcee and already unemployed office manager, inherits her aunt Maggie’s house in the burbs. Goodbye city life, Hello…. home that’s straight up auditioning to be a set piece for Jumanji. Like B-movie-sountrack-ominous. With forty-seven HOA violations, it’s a surprise the house is still standing. Mallory is determined to pick up all the broken pieces and fight for her life and her dignity. But then her good-looking, cantankerous neighbor is all, “If you’re naive enough to fix up this place, I’d suggest starting with the grass.” Oh no, he didn’t.

How to survive the burbs?

Good ol’ YouTube to the rescue. And a glass (bottle) of wine.

Looking for an escape read? I got you, boo. Pick up Back in The Burbs for some gut-busting laughs! The cover is a LOL scene from the book. The flamingos are spit-your drink out hilarious! You’ll fall off your chair, the story is so funny. BitB’s love interest is totally swoon-worthy. Infinite heart eyes for Nick Holloway. His antics will make your insides go all soft and gooey. He excels at that white-knight stuff, he just pretends he’s a big grouch. Tracy Wolff and Avery Flynn killed it with their charming rom-com novel. I am going to need more from this duo!

-laughing your head off (what’s up chapter 12. Okay, you too 13)
