Mom's Night Out by Tricia Goyer

Mom's Night OutBook Description:
Mom’s Night Out is a novelization of the hilarious family comedy that celebrates real family life—where everything can go wrong and still turn out all right.

All Allyson and her friends want is a peaceful, grown-up evening of dinner and conversation . . . a long-needed moms’ night out. But in order to enjoy high heels, adult conversation and food not served in a bag, they need their husbands to watch the kids for a few hours—what could go wrong?

Chronicling one night out gone awry, three harried moms, their husbands, a sister-in-law with a misplaced baby, a tattoo parlor owner, a motorcycle gang, and a bewildered cabbie all learn to embrace the beautiful mess called parenting. This book spotlights the unfulfilled expectations and serial self-doubts many moms feel . . . then reassures us that the key is raising kids in a loving home. Mom’s Night Out is an endearing, true-to-life comedy.

The MOMS’ NIGHT OUT film features Sarah Drew (Grey’s Anatomy), Sean Astin (THE LORD OF THE RINGS), Patricia Heaton (Everybody Loves RaymondThe Middle), Alex Kendrick (COURAGEOUS), Robert Amaya (COURAGEOUS), Andrea Logan White (REVELATION ROAD), Kevin Downes (COURAGEOUS), and platinum-selling country recording artist Trace Adkins (THE LINCOLN LAWYER).

My Thoughts:
This was a good one!  Three mothers who each think the others have it together and that there is something wrong with them, are having a mom's night out.  Allyson isn't as in control as everyone thinks and isn't overly happy with how life is.  Izzy is the mom of twins and so doesn't need to add to that, but has a secret that she has to tell her husband.  Sondra is the preacher's wife who doesn't have it together, but tries to make everyone, including herself believe she is.  As the three of them go out, Murphy's Law goes into effect.
Ok, I laughed out loud so many times at this book that my husband must think I'm crazy.  I like that each mother thinks the others are perfect and that there is something wrong with them.  It is a mindset that I can relate to as a mom.  I also liked that the dads were watching the kids and supportive with the night out.  The chain of events was a bit exaggerated, but it seems like something that would actually happen!  I can't wait to see the movie.
I rate it a 5/5.  It is supposed to be fiction but I completely related to a LOT of it :) Thank you to the publisher/author for the review copy of this book (via litfuse).  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
