This week’s read: Happy & You Know It by Laura Hankin
Just before the band Vagabond becomes a sensation, lead singer Claire Martin is replaced. She finds a job as the musician for a baby playgroup for well-to-do mommies in New York City. At first it’s just a job for Claire, but slowly the women accept her as part of their tight knit group and she enjoys being with them. Not everything is wonderful for these women. An expensive vitamin supplement they all take promises health and boundless energy. It seems to be too good to be true. What follows is an adventure of drama, wealth, privilege, and secrets.
Again, I stepped out of my reading comfort zone and am glad that I did. I tend to read historical fiction and cozy mysteries–this was more like a trip to a Real Housewives reality show!
Reviewers suggest this book for those who enjoy reading novels by Sophie Kinsella, Elin Hilderbrand and Elizabeth Berg. I would also say that if you enjoy reality TV, you’ll definitely find something to like here!
Happy & You Know It by Laura Hankin will be released on May 19!
