Who Makes Up These Rules, Anyway? by Stevi Mittman

Let me tell you a story, about a girl on Long Island, who always tried to play life by “the rules”—as outlined in the Secret Handbook of Long Island Rules...

That girl, uh, woman, is me, Teddi Gallo. I’m the mother of three kids under the age of eleven, best friend to Bobbie (who denies there’s any such thing as a secret handbook, but who knows all the moves by heart), and the daughter of June (who has inside info on the rules, but also has a reserved room at South Winds Psychiatric Hospital, as well).

And if I don’t have enough to send me over the edge, my too-handsome-for- his-own- good husband seems determined to drive me crazy. But why?

This is the tale of how I had to re-write that old, dusty handbook—and while doing so, I suddenly discovered the secret to happiness was living by your own rules. And that has made everything different.

Let me tell you, I loved this book! It was just too funny. It's a quick read and once I started it, I had a lot of trouble putting it down. I received the book from Stevi when I visited the eHarlequin Open House chat in December. Also got the other Teddi Bayer books and I can't wait to read them.

It's a cute blend of women's fiction and humor that really had me laughing and rooting for Teddi as it seems that everything is going crazy around her. Well, her included! I may not be the age that this book is aimed at, but I certainly enjoyed it and plan to pick up some more in the future, if they are anything like this one.

Sounds real cute and funny. I will be on the lookout for this one.

I saw a review of this some where and thought it sounded good. I wonder if "Stevi Mittman" is "Stephanie Mittman" who used to write Americana Historicals.

I believe it is, Tara Marie.
