The new novel from the bestselling author of The Descendants , is a hilarious and charming story about a quirky single mum in San Francisco who tiptoes through the minefields of the "Mummy Wars" and manages to find friendship and love.
When Mele Bart told her boyfriend Bobby she was pregnant with his child, he stunned her with an announcement of his own: he was engaged to someone else.
Fast forward two years, Mele's daughter is a toddler and Bobby and his fianc#65533;e want Ellie to be the flower girl at their wedding. Mele, who also has agreed to attend the nuptials, knows she can't continue obsessing about Bobby and his cheese making, Napa-residing, fianc#65533;e. She needs something to do . So she answers a questionnaire provided by the San Francisco Mummy Club in elaborate and shocking detail and decides to enter their cookbook writing contest. Even though she joined the group out of desperation, Mele has found her people: Annie, Barrett, Georgia, and Henry (a stay-at-home dad). As the wedding date approaches, Mele uses her friends' stories to inspire recipes and find comfort, both.

Started out funny, witty, and snarky (some of my very favorite qualities in a book!) but unfortunately turned into a rather predictable, traditional, probably happily-ever-after kind of story about overly privileged characters.
