ABOUT THE BOOK



Ariel Baxter has just moved into the neighborhood of her dreams. The chaos of domestic life and the loneliness of motherhood, however, moved with her. Then she meets her neighbor, Justine Miller. Justine ushers Ariel into a world of clutter-free houses, fresh-baked bread, homemade crafts, neighborhood play dates, and organization techniques designed to make marriage better and parenting manageable.



Soon Ariel realizes there is hope for peace, friendship, and clean kitchen counters. But when rumors start to circulate about Justine’s real home life, Ariel must choose whether to believe the best about the friend she admires or consider the possibility that “perfection” isn’t always what it seems to be.

My Thoughts:

Wow! I read this one in the tub the other night. We have just relocated to our new home and are meeting new folks (much like the character in the book). My heart squeezed for those ladies. I understand how easy it is to fall into the trap of putting on a mask and 'faking it until you make it'. So many things to identify with. So many heart wrenching moments. I loved this book. So real in many ways and sad because it happens every day. I am glad for Marybeth to shed a light on this. Thank you!
