9780060596064: Play Dates

With her sharp wit and riveting style, Leslie Carroll plunges us deep into the world of the overscheduled children of New York, and the oversexed, over-lipoed, overpaid people who raise them -or pay their nannies!

What happens when a trophy wife gets turned in for someone even younger, blonder, and prettier? Claire Marsh doesn't take it lying down. She may have lost both husband and housekeeper in the horrible divorce, but even if she's not able to keep living in the manner to which she's accustomed, she'll do what it takes so that her daughter will—with a little help from her slightly wild, slightly out-of-control sister MiMi.

About the Author:

Native New Yorker Leslie Carroll is also a professional actress, dramatist, and journalist. Her first two books, contemporary romantic comedies set in her hometown, won a series of rave reviews. She also writes historical and New York "tart noir" detective fiction. Leslie has worked more temp jobs than she cares to remember in the fields of politics, advertising, public relations, and -- far too frequently -- law. But it's all ripe for social satire and fodder for fiction!

From Booklist:

In Manhattan's world of competitive mothering, Claire Marsh becomes seriously handicapped when her 15-years-senior husband leaves her for an older woman. Without a well-to-do husband and Hilda the housekeeper, how is Claire supposed to stay in the game of birthday parties that cost more than some weddings and a full roster of baby bikram (yoga) and kinder karate? Having married her husband when she was only 18, Claire finds herself a 26-year-old mother who has never had a job. Now she must find work, care for her daughter, and try not to let the sniping comments of other moms get to her. Fans of Carroll's lighthearted comedies--Reality Check (2002), Temporary Insanity (2004)--will find more of the same here. The story is engaging, and Carroll's mockery of the snobbishness that pervades some urban parenting circles is spot-on. Beth Leistensnider
