Review: Mr. and Mrs. American Pie by Juliet McDaniel follows Maxine Simmons, Palm Springs socialite, who discovers that her husband is leaving her for his much younger secretary. After a catastrophic meltdown during Thanksgiving, Maxine finds herself exiled in Arizona trying to recreate the fabulous life she loved in California with her faux-mily. This book was surprisingly hilarious. I loved the different perspectives from Maxine, Robert, and Chuck. Each character was witty and charming. The story sets place at the end of 1969 and the beginning of 1970. The author examines some social issues during that time and shows that love can be found in unexpected places. I was hooked to the story from page one and there were some amusing surprises along way. Overall, I would highly recommend this novel if you are looking for a heartfelt hilarious read. The book releases on Tuesday 8/7/18.
