Book Review: April May Fall by Christina Hovland

 For this review, I chose April May Fall by Christina Hovland.

I received an ARC copy of the ebook for an honest review of this book.

Here is a brief description from Goodreads:
April Davis totally has her life in order. Ha! Not really. Yes, she’s the Calm Mom—a social influencer with a reputation for showing moms how to stay calm and collected through yoga—but behind the scenes, she’s barely holding it all together. Raising tiny humans alone is exhausting, but that’s just the chewed-up cherry on the melted sundae of her life. Her kids aren’t behaving, her husband left her for his skydiving instructor, and her top knot proves she hasn’t showered in days.

Then a live video of the “always calm” April goes viral...and she’s most definitely not. Enter Jack Gibson, April’s contact at the media conglomerate that has purchased April’s brand. The too-sexy-for-his-own-good Jack will help clean up April’s viral mess, and even work with her to expand her influence, but toddler tea parties and a dog with a penchant for peeing on his shoes were definitely not part of the deal.

Now April’s calm has jumped ship quicker than her kids running from their vegetables. Not to mention, the sparks flying between her and Jack have her completely out of her depth. Forget finding her calm—April’s going to need a boatload of margaritas just to find her way back to herself again.

Each book in the Mommy Wars series is STANDALONE:

* Rachel, Out of Office
* There's Something About Molly
* April May Fall
* Everything’s Fine, Emmaline (less)

This is Book #3 in the Mommy Wars Series.  I have not read the other books, but I want to. This is the first book I have read by Christina Hovland.  

I needed to read a book like this. Calming mom. That’s what I have been trying to be.  A calming mom doesn’t use energy to yell and fight with the kids. She uses that energy for something more important.  Moms need to work at encouraging each other.  Not putting them down. 

Kitty was so eccentric!!! She says what’s on her mind with no filter.  Loved Jack & April and the kids.  Ribbit!!  You need to read the book to find out what Ribbit means!!  

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
