Book Review: Holly Banks Full of Angst

A laugh-out-loud debut novel for anyone who’s tried to live the perfect life—and learned the hard way there’s no such thing.
Holly Banks could not have made a worse first impression on the seemingly perfect moms in her new affluent community, the Village of Primm. Turns out wearing pink piggy pajama bottoms while dropping off her kindergartener late to the first day of school wasn’t her best look.
Not to mention Holly’s worried her husband may be having an affair, she can’t get her daughter to stop sucking her thumb, her hard-won film degree is collecting dust, and to top it all off, the power-hungry PTA president clearly has it in for her…
To make matters even worse, Holly’s natural eye for drama lands her smack-dab in the middle of a neighborhood mystery—right as her own crazy mother shows up in Primm “to help.” Through it all, Holly begins to realize her neighbors may be just as flawed as—and even wackier than—she is, leaving her to wonder: Is there such a thing as a perfect mom?

I received a free digital copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. 

I really enjoyed this book and I cannot wait for the next one. It’s true, I am a sucker for a series but this one was so awesome! I finished this book from cover to cover in an afternoon. It was just that good.

I love how real the writing felt. I know I constantly feel like things are happening to me and I am just “unlucky.” But my bad luck has nothing on Mrs. Holly Banks! The characters in this book are just so well written and I connected so organically with them. 

The story line was also just wonderful. It had such a good pace and was just over all well written. This book had me physically laughing out loud to the point of tears in my eyes. This was just a fantastic book that will completely tickle your funny bone. 

Thank you kindly to the publisher, the author, and NetGalley for allowing me to review this title.
