Jennifer Johnson finally walked down the aisle with the man of her dreams. He’s handsome and wealthy, a real catch. Her mother in law is so “supportive” she bought the newlyweds a gaudy brand-new house right next to hers, and even hired Jennifer a housekeeper. She has a company credit card to spend money on important things like designer clothes, spa days and country club lunches. Anything she could possibly desire is at her fingertips…Right?
So why is Jennifer feeling so unhappy? Everyone seems to want her to be someone she isn’t, and it seems her mother-in-law is sabotaging her every move (but she can’t prove it!). The church ladies seem to find her detestable and the country club ladies treat her like she’s a joke. Her new in-laws don’t seem all too impressed by Jennifer OR her husband, and her husband has stopped coming home AT ALL sometimes. Alone in her giant gaudy house with her three-legged rescue dog, very rude talking refrigerator, and a family of immigrants, Jennifer is starting to feel like marriage isn’t all that it was cracked up to be, back when she was a single gal.
But Jennifer won’t go down easy. She’s a fighter. She will find a way to “beat” it all, and in a climax that you would have to read yourself to believe.
This novel is quite possibly the most hilarious chicklit I have ever read. I laughed until I cried. Over and over again! If you like chicklit, you will LOVE Heather McElhatton, who wrote a novel before this one entitled Jennifer Johnson is Sick of Being Single, and also a novel called Pretty Little Mistakes, and who has mastered chicklit comedy better than anyone in the genre. If you like pretty much ANY Chicklit, or if you like humorous female heroines like you would find in Janet Evanovich or Lisa Lutz novels, buy Jennifer Johnson is Sick of Being Married today. Satisfaction guaranteed!
