Welcome to Forest River, New York, where perfection is a requirement.
The Lululemon-clad moms are perfectly toned, expertly highlighted, and magnificently manicured. The women spend their days practicing Pilates, shopping for shoes, and doing everything in their power to ensure their children never experience a difficult day.
PTA president, Jackie Martin, is the envy off the mothers. She has a loyal and handsome husband, she hosts elaborate parties, and her eldest daughter, Hayley, is the most popular child in the fifth grade. Her life appears flawless, but is life ever what it seems to be?
After receiving a painful blow when Hayley was in kindergarten, Jackie clawed her way into PTA power. She lived her life by the adage, “Proper planning prevents poor performance.” Her attention to detail (okay fine – her control freak nature) served her well until she experiences the ultimate betrayal.
Angry and hurt, old emotional wounds are ripped open as Jackie realizes she doesn’t know who she can trust. Jackie must reevaluate her life, her friendships, and the choices she has made.
Will she finally let her guard down and show the world the real Jackie Martin?

Honest and Very Funny!
Very entertaining! Like the previous two novels, this is a lively story about U.S. schools and the every present parental support.
Jackie Martin has turned Forest River PTA into a wonderful financial support for the school and it’s students. She is idolised and revered by many for her seemingly perfect life, but it hasn’t all been a walk in the park. She has had more than one fight on her hands to get to her position and has developed close friendships along the way. However, a bolt from the blue lets her know that there is trouble ahead; now she needs to find out from which direction it’s coming. Who can she trust?
I adore this series. It will appeal to anyone who has ever gathered outside the school gates to drop off and pick up their children. There is always a hierarchy in these things, and it takes time to work out where you fit it. Hilary Grossman writes with honesty and humour, keeping the reader on their toes while they giggle madly. Love, love, love this one – looking forward to the fourth book already! A full five glittering stars and a recommendation to all mums, moms and mummies out there!
My grateful thanks to the author for my copy; this is – as always my honest, original and unbiased review.
