Good, fast read. Typical mommy lit.

However, the title has nothing to do with this book, and neither does the cover. Go figure.

The main character, Ruby, was a mommy, but she certainly wasn't behaving badly. :) I was expecting more "Desperate Housewives" type behavior from her and other neighborhood mommies, but this book is more about Ruby's relationship with her husband, and adjusting their family to moving cross country from New York to Oregon.

As a working mommy of 3 kids myself, I could relate to Ruby's struggles to balance being a mom with her job, her husband, and taking care of her home.

The ending was a bit weak - considering what she and her husband went through, I was surprised at how everything was sunshine and roses at the end. Not quite realistic. However, overall, it was still an enojyable read.
