Elaine Jackerson has found herself in quite a predicament. Her husband, Bob, is sleeping with his secretary, her daughter is experimenting in the backseat with random boys, and her eight year old wants nothing to do with her.

In an attempt to get herself out of her midlife rut, Elaine joins the Herschel Grammar School PTA. Little does she know, Suni Calverson, the current president has handpicked her to be the newest member of the group. As soon as the ink is dry on the signup sheet, Elaine is thrust into a world that she never knew existed. A world where the PTA gets things done with blackmail, bribes, threats and quite possibly guns.

After stumbling across her husband and his secretary humping in his office, Elaine turns to the only friends she has: Suni and her henchmen. They convince her to let them “take care” of Bob. Elaine agrees to the plan, as long as no one dies. Unfortunately for Elaine, Suni has other plans. Before Elaine can sleep off her Mojitos, her children have been kidnapped and Bob has disappeared. Afraid that Elaine will go back on her word, Suni forces her onto a plane to hide out in a posh suite in Las Vegas that belongs to the famous French landscape photographer Gerard Ilg.

Determined to get her children back and avoid jail, Elaine spends her time in Sin City vacillating between planning her escape and trying to stay out of the arms of the much younger, very hot, very Hawaiian limo driver Benjamin Oliana. Does he care for Elaine, or is she just another notch on his Billabong belt? What about her famous host who keeps encouraging her to “find her passion”? Gerard is a man of the world—a man that knows Suni. Can he be trusted? More importantly, can she sort out her feelings, take down the PTA Mafia, and go home to her children?

Three words to describe Confessions of a PTA Mafia Mom: Oh My Goodness!

The humor Elise Love displays in this full length novel is hilarious and I caught myself laughing aloud.

The Herschel Grammar School has a secret weapon when it comes to personal affairs (literally) and no one, and I mean no one, should mess with these women. Picture housewives cornering you and locking you in the gym until you give in and sign up. OY! These women are relentless and trust me, they get what they want.

Love's writing style is unbelievable, the flow of the story is to perfection and the camaraderie of the women is something all women can relate to. Love takes serious story lines (a cheating husband) and adds such humor that the reader has to envelop the entire scenario. This is a very fast paced novel and I highly recommend the book to any woman who needs a chuckle. Love makes the lead heroine, Lanie, so charming you can’t help but root for her.
