As someone who grew up in the South during the 1980s and '90s, I recognized the people and places Hendrix writes about in this novel. It's the story of a group of Southern SAHMs who form a book club that mainly reads true crime and then discover a real monster in their midst. This is a big, somewhat over-the-top, sometimes squicky horror book, which makes it a perfect summer read, in my opinion. I highly enjoyed it. And I am fans of the women characters--they are tough, roll up their sleeves and do what they have to do. I want to join their book club.

I also wish that people who review books as being racist and sexist would back up their claims with evidence from the text. It's a pretty serious charge to level, and I have to wonder if it's a knee-jerk reaction to a book being truthful about the ways things are or were (and this book is truthful about the 1990s South--I lived it). Or is it that the reader didn't give characters a chance to evolve or deepen or for satire to reveal itself? This book throws a lot of shade on how men treat women generally and how housewives in particular are devalued. There is also commentary on how society ignores crimes targeting Black people such as the Atlanta children murders. The time and place the book was set in were sexist and racist (still are, in a lot of ways), not the book itself. ( )

I loved this book. it's not often I truly love a book, oh I like a lot, but not love, this one I loved. I would absolutely listen to it again and again. The characters are likeable and genuine and real. Their lives are real they have real problems with their children, husbands and in-laws. And it was fun, I recommend it highly. ( )

This would have gotten more stars if it wasn't dripping in sexism and racism. It was entertaining but frustrating. ( )
