Book Review - Perfect is Overrated by Karen Bergreen


Think you want to be the perfect mom? Think again…..

Kate Alger has finally found the cure for her post-partum depression. After years of suffering, all it takes to bring this mommy back to life were a few gruesome homicides! When someone starts offing the alpha-moms from Kate’s daughter’s preschool, Kate—who worked as an Assistant District
Attorney before she had Molly—realizes it’s time to get out of bed, dust off the skills and find out who is killing all the mommies she loves to hate.
Wickedly funny and slightly twisted, Perfect Is Overrated is a romp through the life of one very needy mom, her cockeyed family, gorgeous ex-husband, and the entire insane, entitled, over-dressed , over-zealous, eternally jealous parent body at The Hawthorne Preschool.

I was privileged to review Karen Bergreen's first book, "Following Polly," and loved it!  So I was thrilled when Karen asked me to review her new book, "Perfect Is Overrated."  And I'm pleased to say that I love this book just as much as I did the first!

Karen has a wicked sense of humor (good thing she's a comedian!) that shines through her writing, giving her readers a delightful and laugh-filled rollercoaster ride of a story that will have them laughing out loud and shaking and/or nodding their heads in agreement throughout the tale!

If you are looking for a funny, light-natured story with a dash of mystery and a pinch of romance, "Perfect is Overrated" is the book for you!  I highly recommend Karen's books, and can't wait for the next one!!

KAREN BERGREEN's first career was as an attorney who clerked for a federal judge. Her second career as a stand-up comic has led to appearances not in front of the bench, but on Comedy Central, the Oxygen network, Court TV and Law & Order. She lives in New York City.

Check out her website at www.karenbergreen.net for more information on her books and upcoming projects and appearances!

I received a copy of this book from the author for review. I was not compensated for my opinion.
