    Fast-paced with plenty of humor

    In Manhattans' affluent Upper East Side, Tru Newman is an "M&M" (Maintenance and Mothering) stay at home to raise her twin fourteen years old daughters and being there to make life easier for her spouse Peter an investment banker. At a charity event Tru hosts she learns the shocking truth that Peter has been unemployed for three months with the family living on credit cards.

    Tru's BFF Sienna Post loses her nightly news anchor position. Both are desperate when they come up with a scheme to make money. They create an escort service with all the female working girls over the age of forty. To their shock, the clientele is under thirty year old yuppies who appreciate an older woman. Meanwhile Peter's new job has him working with a flirtatious beauty at the same time their twins battle with one another over an acne eighth grade lover. However the worst of all is her mom, a former Miss New York Subway who has a heart attack and moves in with them.

    Though too much occurs that impacts the meat in the sandwich caretaker and the ending is too simple for what is going on with the three generations, fans will enjoy this lighthearted Manhattan frolic. The ensemble cast is solid though held in focus by the overworked middle generational matriarch. Fast-paced with plenty of humor, The Best Laid Plans of mice and Tru always go astray.

    It was just okay

    I'd read the reviews for this book and I had just gotten a Nook for my birthday and this one was the first book I downloaded. The character's were spot on, but I was extremly dissapointed on how it ended.

    GREAT READ

    This book lives up to all the publicity it's gotten - a lively fictional takeoff on the Elliot Spitzer scandal and the economic meltdown. The fun starts when middle-age housewife Tru Newman starts an escort service with her best friend to pull herself out of a financial hole. There's a lot of great social commentary and a cast of characters I really cared about.
