Book Description

Sending the children off to college is never easy. For Lacey Marchand and Cara Myers, an empty nest is enough to drive them a little crazy -- but sometimes, a little crazy is just what the doctor ordered.

Now that their daughters have left for college, Lacey and Cara have too much time on their hands. With nothing else to do, Cara decides to help single-mom Lacey get a life. And what better way to get a life than a few blind dates?

Lacey, however, can't think of a worse way to spend her weekends. She has her own ideas for curing their empty nest problems -- Cara needs a new career. And a career just happens to be what Lacey understands best.
For Cara and Lacey, coping with the empty nest means reinventing their lives without losing their sanity. Where the Greener Grass Grows is the story of two mothers learning to live, to laugh and to let go.

Editorial Reviews


"If you are looking for a book that will make you laugh, cringe at the thought of another blind date or just some humor in life, then this is the book for you... Thanks for a great read, Lin." - Bunny's Review
"With fun and likable characters, good dialogue and a well paced plot, Ms. Brooks grabbed me from the first page, I really didn't want to put down until I finished it. My rating: 5 out of 5 crowns" -Queen Of All She Reads

4.0 out of 5 stars Thelma and Louise - the Middle Class Version December 8, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Cara is a bored housewife whose husband won't discuss his work problems, or anything else for that matter, and Lacey is a divorcee who thought her life was fine - however when their daughters go off the college, Cara decided her life needs a shake up and she's going to drag her friend along with her whether she likes it or not.

Cara cons Lacey into some dire blind dates while Lacey sends Cara off to a job interview teaching funeral directing as a career to students. I didn't get much of a feeling of the `empty nest syndrome' though as the two daughters are integral to the story and when they are not online to their mothers, come home at every opportunity.

Sometimes I couldn't tell which conversation was the mothers and which the daughters, but maybe that was the point. Lacey and Cara seemed like slightly risqué teenage girls at times, especially in karate class, but they explored life and attitudes they had never tried before which was fun.

This was an enjoyable and easy read with some well crafted poignancy in Cara's deteriorating relationship with her husband which many women must face when their children leave home, and Lacey's spiteful ex-husband who used his daughter to get at her.
I received a copy of this e-book in exchange for an honest review

Interesting book about women and empty nest syndrome. Made me realize I did not have empty nest because my daughter had her daughter before she moved out.
