The Glamorous Life of a Mediocre Housewife (Strawberry Lake Estates #1) by Crissy Sharp

Lotty Brooks’ days consist of avoiding thoughts of her failing marriage, changing diapers, and trying not to eat chocolate brioche for breakfast and lunch. However, everything changes when her perfect, lakeside Montana neighborhood begins bustling with crime and she seems to be the target.

Jason Brooks wants to know what happened to the woman he married. Lotty’s a mere shell of her former self. When she becomes the focal point of neighborhood threats, and the town seems to question her innocence, he must decide how well he knows his wife.

As Jason and Lotty try to get to the bottom of the threats and find those responsible, they’ll need to remember what they once loved about each other. Otherwise, they may lose everything and everyone they care about.

I thought I was going to enjoy this book but I underestimated just how much.  I love being pleasantly surprised!  I think what I loved most about this book was the perfect balance of the harder, sadder things and the humor.  I smiled a lot.  There were many emotions in this book all of which I felt.  I love that.  

I love getting the duel perspectives from Lotty and Jason.  It really helped me to understand them both better and not pick sides.  😊 Lotty is a fun representation of young motherhood and there were so many things I could relate to as I remembered when my own kids were young and required so much of me.

I am completely interested in the mystery surrounding Lotty and Jason and their  neighborhood.  I sure didn't get all my questions answered in this book so it's a good thing I know there is more coming!  I can't wait for the next book!
