Back in the Burbs by Tracy Wolff, Avery Flynn


A Review by Wendy

 3.5 Adjusting To The Plan Stars
* * * 1/2  

Spoiler Free-A Quick Review

It s not every day you have to deal with getting your cheating husband to become your ex, somehow now not having your NYC apartment or money or job. All of these things have just taken place front and center in Mallory's life.

And to add more pain and confusion, her Great Aunt Maggie, the only person on this earth who got her, has passed away. Yet, with this happening, it is like Maggie is reaching out to tell Mallory, things will work out, I've got a plan for you...I am giving you my house and you can re-invent yourself there.


Mallory decides to take Great Aunt Maggie's offer and even with the caveat Maggie threw in of it "needing a little work", Mallory is ready to take it on.

Little did Mallory realize what was about to happen...
She was going to go toe to toe with the bane of all home powers, the dreaded HOA. Yes, those people who like to make 67,000 rules over the stupidest things. She also didn't know the cute guy next door would be someone who likes rules and would point out all the things that needed to be done at their first meeting.

This was a fun, sweet, humorous, and heartfelt RomCom that also shared some real stuff about life and the people we love. Not everything we think about our loved ones is what happening...sometimes they may need a helping hand with things but don't want to ask. The life lesson is to reach out and make sure there is no judgment in our offers of assistance.
