Not Your Everyday Housewife

(The fifth book in the That Second Chance series)
A novel by

Sometimes we're lucky enough to get that second chance - in life and in love. That Second Chance Series are stand-alone stories of strong women who battle heartache and loss with a courage and determination to find new paths and true love. What ties them together? A common theme: belief in the beauty of that second chance.

Not Your Everyday Housewife is Book Five of That Second Chance Series.

A wise and humorous tale of living large after 40 as women finally make peace with themselves - wrinkles, blubber, neuroses, exes, and all.

Three women embark on a month-long "discovery" journey and uncover quite a few tidbits along the way... one bottle of Clairol Midnight will not cover a full head of red hair, and never talk to men wearing polyester pants hiked up with a tan belt. But most of what they unearth is about themselves - who they are, what they really want, what they really don't want. The center of controversy is a Maid-for-You mixer, which symbolizes a boring, routine suburban life with no second chances - then along comes insight in the form of Tula Rae, a sixty-something salsa-dancing, Dalai Lama-quoting, four-time widow in Spandex and a gray braid who gives them a different perspective on life, love, do-overs, and the real reason a man buys his woman a Maid-for-You mixer, which she says is all about S-E-X.
