deep character study

In Bellevue, Washington everyone envies thirty-six year old Taylor Young who seems to live the perfect life. Her husband adores her and they have three wonderful children as they share an affluent lifestyle. Taylor looks forward to being super Head Room Mom for her daughter Tori's fifth grade class. However to her shock, MRS. PERFECT is bypassed as class supermom as her enemy and complete opposite hippie mom Marta Zinsser is selected. As the two women fight over everything, Taylor learns her affluence is gone and her trust devastated; her spouse has been unemployed for six months but hid it; he no longer can. As everyone seems to cut her off only her enemy combatant Marta still talks with her. ODD MOM OUT was a deep character study of Marta that focused on personal and professional relationships; this time Marta plays a secondary role as Jane Porter places her spotlight on a supermom MRS. PERFECT in another deep character study. Taylor evolves from her image is the message lifestyle to the realization that true friends are there when things turn nasty. Fans will appreciate Ms. Porter's strong look at what happens to relationships when the walls come tumbling down. Harriet Klausner

This book is amazing

I loved this book! But I wasn't really surprised, I've loved every book I've read of Jane's. She is the kind of writer that can make you feel like you are a part of the world she's created in her books. I laughed, I cried, I cheered Taylor on as she dealt with seemingly insurmountable obstacles. What a great read.

Perfect Book

Jane Porter did it again!! I loved Mrs. Perfect as much as Odd Mom out, and Flirting With Forty. She writes so you get drawn into the story and can visualize the characters. Pass the word on to your friends on this fantastic writter!!


After finishing Flirting with Forty, I rushed out to get Odd Mom Out and was happily surprised that Mrs Perfect was also sitting on the shelf beside it. I got both that day. I have to say. I didn't like Taylor in Odd Mom Out. And yet... even though I didn't like Taylor for the first 1/4 of Mrs Perfect... I devoured the book in a night! I think that by not initially liking Taylor made me appreciate her more by the end of the book and watching her overcome so many obstacles in her path. I mean... once Jane put that wench into her life... I was wanting to see how Taylor was going to get through it all. Wonderful book!


Leave it to Jane Porter to pull off the impossible. When we first met Taylor Young in ODD MOM OUT, she was one of those women you love to hate. You know the kind, right? Totally put together; the perfect house, the perfect family, the perfect outfit, the perfect body. Not to mention the perfectly condescending attitude and the perfect snarky comments reserved exclusively for those not quite in her social league. The kind of woman who makes you run and hide the minute you see her approaching. With so few redeeming qualities, how in the world could such a woman be expected to gain our sympathy and trust; enough so that we willingly follow her along for 417 pages, cheering her on at the end? Why? Simply because Ms. Porter is a brilliant writer, with the THE PERFECT GIFT when it comes to tapping the emotional jugular vein that resonates with women worldwide. She translates into words what we feel in our hearts; what scares us, what excites us, what saddens us. We're drawn into Taylor Young's life, and suddenly we're part of that perfect world as it begins to crumble. And we feel her pain. And we begin to realize the difference between the "perfect women of the world" and the rest of us. We're wearing make-up, while they're struggling not only with make-up, but keeping up that perfect veneer. Ms. Porter takes us through the painful process as Taylor Young is stripped raw of the layers of veneer that make up her life. It's certainly not pretty, and in these hard economic times, indeed, it's rather painful. But as always with a Jane Porter novel, it's real. Breathtaking, heartwreching, can't-stop-reading-even-though-it's-1 AM-real. My recommendation: Run, don't walk, to the bookstore and buy this book. It's the PERFECT read.
