South Beach Cinderella. A folded embroidered tablecloth with matching napkins, brass candleholders, and a book with yellowed pages, missing its cover, called The Jewish Home Beautiful.

Twenty-something Robbie Ivy wants to keep her life as simple and commitment-free as possible. Potts’ second effort is a twisty mystery that draws on headline news-specifically, the drugging of high-school girls on vacation, who are then kidnapped and forced into prostitution. In one eventful day, heroine Robbie Ivy, who left a high-powered corporate job to be a bartender on Miami’s South Beach, learns that she has a half sister she never knew about and that the girl has vanished into the neon jungle of South Florida.

Watching Oprah’s interview with Michael Jackson accusers Wade Robson and James Safechuck, and their Leaving Neverland documentary, convinces one writer to let the pop icon g. Oprah and the Leaving Neverland Documentary Finally Convinced Me to Let Go of Michael Jackson. This is bigger than a celebrity.

If you’ve ever been a mom, or a daughter, or a wife…sometimes you just feel like flapping your wings and saying goodbye to Neverland. (Don’t ya?) Wendy Wright, a stay-at-home mom, has a fairy-tale existence with three terrific teenage kids, a handsome husband, and a comfortable upscale lifestyle. She’s even won second place in the ‘Warmest Hearth in Our Hometown’ competition and makes a killer chili. But Wendy worries about finding fulfillment “after the kids have gone off to college” and decides it’s time to step off the ‘Mommy Track’ and venture out of Neverland. Despite her family’s misgivings, she takes a temp job that’s well beneath her abilities as a one-time successful MBA. But before long, hyper-competent Wendy is practically running things at the poorly managed company. Unfortunately, things aren’t so great at home. The kids are getting into trouble, Wendy’s widowed father has come to live with them, and her husband has lost his job and dignity in his own mid-life crisis. Wendy feels the crush of the sandwich generation as she tries to juggle work, family and a marriage that’s fast unraveling. But Wendy’s not about to give up on her family, the company…or herself. Goodbye Neverland will make you laugh and cry. But mostly you’ll be standing up and cheering for the moms of the world.

I enjoyed the beginning of this book very much. As a mother of four I definitely could relate to the main character's situation and her feelings. I could see myself doing the things she did under the same circumstances. However, I did not like the ending. Once again, she seemed to give up everything she had just declared her independence from to go back to the same kind of life she had before. I got the feeling she was giving up everything for some perceived life of 'domestic bliss'. In my mind, the ending was a cop-out.

I really liked the story. What I didn't like are the loose ends--no closure with the Stockton storyline, no closure with the OBGYN visits, no real closure on who she winds up with (she didn't seem satisfied with her own ending). I loved loved the story but felt that the skipping of a month at a time and the lack of closure made it a solid 3.5 stars.

This is a thoroughly enjoyable read. I think it is about a woman who rises to the occasion of family need and in the process learns things she never wanted to know about her husband and learns again things she always knew about herself. Potts' mainstream books pull the reader in with genuine emotion, self-discovery, and a good solid plot. I wouldn't miss it.

I have enjoyed Sharon Potts previous books. This one is similar. I like women's mystery books. I would recommend it to others.

From the opening moment in the gyne's office, this book hooks you and won't let go. The laughable moments are genuine instead of comic because they hold up a mirror to ourselves, and the same it true for the many pithy lows. If you can't love every character in the book, you can at least recognize them as real people. Looking forward to reading more of her work!

I had a hard time getting into the book, but as the plot developed it became more interesting. Nothing memorable, but well written.

While this book does not fall into the best book I've ever read category, it was an easy, enjoyable read.
When courage, competence, and self-sacrifice just aren't enough - what else is there to give?
After raising her children and being the perfect wife, how could Wendy Wright's innocent quest to get back into the working world have resulted in so much catastrophe? She might as well have set off an atom bomb in the living room.
Not that she didn't do well in her new role as businesswoman. She was fantastic, as she had been before she dedicated herself to her family. But was this just not supposed to be, was she evil to think of doing something with and for herself? Sharon Potts spins this very funny, satirically serious tale that gives great insight into what we think is important, what we think is perfect and what is simply delusional.
