THE GRASS AIN'T GREENER
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Multicultural
New Jersey housewife Ramona Shaw, 34, is experiencing burnout to the ultimate degree. Her job as "domestic engineer/sex goddess" is not all it's cracked up to be. She's overworked, underpaid and unappreciated during the day by her two children, and romanced on the "sixty-second, seven-stroke" plan at night by her corporate Adonis husband-all the while finishing her master's degree at a local college. After a blazing row with her husband, Ramona decides to take a vacation-sans kids and husband-and visit her sister.
Madrir Shaw can't believe his wife has left. How, he asks, can a little housework cause burnout? He's sure most of her day is spent watching TV. In a huff, he decides to show her a thing or two-he'll handle her housework, the kids and his job!
