The setting, although fictional, is familiar, as the book takes place in Silicon Valley where I live. Yet seeing the area through Maggie's eyes offers a fresh perspective on the world around me - a hallmark of good fiction.
This was more like a Nancy Drew type read but the main protagonist is not smart, not cleaver, and not analytical by any means. She is supposed to be a master organizer and she is anything but organized. It seems that life happens around her and she is totally unaware of it…more Barney Fife in nature. Nor is she a good mother by neglecting their needs and feeding them crap instead of meals. She did seem to marry the perfect mate as he was all about his needs and wants and not to terribly concerned (in actions) while his family was in danger.
Back to purchasing – with the number of name drops in this book you should be getting it for free. There are so many references to name brands that surely this book has to be getting some royalties. It certainly causes all us East Coast people to wonder if Starbucks is a narcotic and a necessity for life. And don’t even get more started on Apple products. In one section 3 out of 4 sentences used the noun iPad. What was the purpose? It certainly took away from the point that had to be made. I don’t get why the author felt it necessary to constantly name the device as opposed to saying phone or tablet. I believe the intent is to make the character appear more tech savvy when it reality the opposite is true when you understand technology.
I struggled to finish this book and it was painful. In the end was not at all happy with it and my recommendation is to give this advertisement a pass.
